We would love that your furniture remains cared for.

  • Dust frequently with a clean soft cloth
  • Polish the wood surfaces on a regular basis
  • Blot spills with a soft clean dry cloth
  • Wet cloths can stain and damage the wood
  • Avoid direct contact with sunlight as it will cause fading over time
  • Wood may expand and contract with seasonal variances. Maintain constant humidity levels to prevent warping or cracking.
  • Leather must be wiped with dry cloth.
  • Dragging objects across the surface of the furniture causes scratches
  • Always use protective materials when placing anything on top of your wood furniture.
  • Glass Surfaces, whilst toughened and polished can scratch. Avoid dragging objects over the surface and best cleaned with some crumpled newspaper for a shiny surface.

Do not make use of chemical cleansers and abrasives. We recommend you avoid furniture polish or wax. Wax leaves a film over your product over time.
Bleaches will damage and discolour the furniture.

Duco products, although smooth and reasonably durable, are not impervious to stains, damages from heat, moisture and UV and are not impact resistant.
Kindly place a coaster or mat before placing any object containing liquid on the surfaces.
Vases, glasses or other objects holding liquid can cause the paint to bubble if spilt or drip. Please wipe the surface immediately should any liquid spill. Should the liquid be left on a MDF surface it may result in swelling and staining of the material.

Direct contact with pens, rubber, candle wax, wine, food or any perfumed product will leave a stain on most furniture surfaces

Wood may expand and contract with seasonal variances. Maintain constant humidity levels to prevent warping or cracking

Air, artificial light and UV will over time change the natural colour of wood and sprayed surfaces.

Rotate items on any surface for uniform ageing and colour development

Do not drag furniture that has legs as they may crack or break off if on tiled or uneven floors
