Care and Handling
all manufacturer instructions after assembly. All
manufacturers offer several years worth of
replacement-part warranty, however you will need the
model and part numbers to be able to order them.
need to be inspected annually (at a minimum) for any
loose bolts or screws, and for any signs of unusual
wear or stress. If the manufacturer has provided an
allen wrench for assembly, use a heavy tape to secure
it to the underside of the chair, so that it can be
found later when needed.
with any size or type of doors, when placed on carpet,
will not be left perfectly level or square by the
installer. The furniture must be placed in its exact
location, filled with items (computer, books, etc.) by
the customer, and allowed to "settle" into
the flooring. After a few days, either the installer
(via a revisit) or the customer can easily level or
square the doors to complete the assembly.
with a paper laminate must be cleaned with care. Never
spray any cleaner directly on the furniture's surface,
always spray the cleaner on a rag or cloth. Endust,
409, or Windex are appropriate cleaners as the
"sheen" is already in the paper and you are
simply cleaning off the surface. Do not use Pledge or
any equivalent furniture polish as it will not soak
into the paper properly and will leave a very
"greasy" residue on the furniture.
use a coaster for any drinks placed on the furniture.
scratches and blemishes can often be covered with a
furniture marking pen, available at all home
improvement stores. Other items, such as shoe polish
or children's crayon can do a very good job.
RTA furniture with extreme care. Carefully lift, do not
drag furniture, as a leg or molding becoming only
slightly "snagged" could easily become
"stressed" and then break or weaken a hardware joint.
If possible, remove a hutch from the desk or remove
doors from an Armoire before moving, to both decrease
the furniture's weight and eliminate stress points.
"L" or "U"-shaped workcenters are
left with the ability to be broken down into smaller,
more manageable pieces for easier moving. Assembly
Solutions can be called to assist with product
relocation at normal service call rates.
not attempt to add wheels or castors to any furniture.
If the manufacturer did not provide them, then the
wood and it's connecting hardware are not engineered
for the stress that will be incurred, as the
furniture's weight would now be "point loaded"
onto the wheels. Additionally, the furniture will
likely become unstable and easily topple over.
