We strive to design and develop the best possible furniture for you. To make sure that your TAKT furniture continues to serve you well, we recommend taking proper care of them by following the below tips and tricks:
- Always follow the instructions that come with the furniture
- Apply the recommended Wood Oil at least once a year
- Remember to tighten screws and bolts from time to time
- Wood is a living material and wood surfaces will patinate over time. How much and how fast the surface will patinate depends on the exposure to light. Avoid placing your furniture in direct sun light.
- Wood surfaces, including lacquered surfaces, do not stand moisture, heat or alcohol. Spills must be wiped up immediately
- We recommend not covering the surfaces partly as this can cause color differences across the surface
- Never place furniture right up against radiators or other heating devices
- Always start with the most gentle cleaning product
- Never use sanding products like scouring powder, metal polishes or cleaners that contain ammonia
- Indoor furniture should not be used outside
- Sweat is acidic and can affect natural materials like wood and leather
- If you experience any issue with your furniture, you are always welcome to reach out to our customer care
For everyday cleaning and specific stain removal, please follow the below instructions.
For day-to-day cleaning, wipe the furniture with a clean cloth. For thorough cleaning, first wipe off loose dust/dirt. Wring out a clean cloth with a solution of water and a universal cleaning detergent. Wash off with clean water. To avoid stripes/blotches, you should finally wipe the furniture with a clean, dry cloth until it is completely dry.
Stains and dirt can be removed from the furniture with a clean cloth wrung in a cleaning solution: hot water and a universal cleaning detergent, a soap flake solution (of 0,25 decilitre soap flakes to 1 litre hot water, cooled), or hot water with 10% vinegar. Finally, wipe off with a clean, dry cloth.
Our quality fabrics are chosen to suit both furniture for private use and public use like offices and hotels, where there is emphasis on durability.
It is important to clean your textile surfaces from time to time in order to keep the upholstery textile looking its best and to prolong its life. Dust and dirt will wear down the textile and also reduce its fire-retardant properties. Vacuum frequently, ideally every week, at half power where appropriate.
If you act quickly, it is not difficult to remove spills and prevent stains from forming. However, we cannot guarantee complete stain removal. First, scrape off any liquids or hardened residues with a spoon or a scoop before you proceed. Any loose particles must be vacuum cleaned before further cleaning. Liquids must be soaked up with an absorbent napkin or cloth.
Remove wet stains by carefully dabbing with a lint-free cloth or sponge wrung in warm detergent-free water. If the stain remains, we recommend the chemical dry cleaning product K2R (www.k2rbrands.com). No other chemicals or detergents can be used. This also applies to steam cleaning.
Remove non-greasy stains by carefully dabbing with a lint-free cloth or sponge wrung out in warm water. Edge marks can be avoided by dabbing gently in circular motions towards the centre of the stain with a clean lint-free cloth. Remove greasy stains by using appropriate detergents or solvents. In all cases, we recommend to test stain-removal agents on a lesser visible area first, to see if there is any effect on the cover.
Make sure to dry the fabric fully before use.
These tips are purely recommendations and cannot guarantee complete stain removal. For larger or more difficult stains, we recommend to contact a professional dry cleaner.
Please don’t rub the material hard because this could result in loss of colour or potentially damage the fabric.
Due to excess dye in jeans, dark jeans may leave stains on textiles; washing and cleaning may not always lead to satisfying results.
Be careful when using solvents; these could dissolve the upholstery materials underneath. Never use un-concentrated detergents or bleach, ammonia or soap intended for hard surfaces.
Leather is a natural material. Like most natural materials, it does need some care and looking after to ensure its long-lasting appeal year after year, generation after generation. If you care for your leather the right way, it will become even more beautiful over time.
Only vacuum clean with a soft brush. Never use soap or water otherwise the velvety look and feel will disappear. Do not apply leather grease or soak the leather. Avoid any chemical products, such as saddle soap, other leather cleaners or household products. Protect from direct sunlight, excessive heat and sharp objects.
For stain removal we recommend using a soap flake solution (0,5 decilitre of soap flakes to a litre of water). Whip the soap flakes into hot water and let the solution cool to room temperature. Apply the foam all over the leather with a soft cloth. Only use the foam and avoid soaking the leather. When the leather is dry, polish it with a soft, dry cotton cloth.
Avoid placing leather in direct sunlight or extreme heat. Avoid soaking leather. Avoid contact with sharp objects.
