Concrete Care and Cleaning Guide

Fibre reinforced Natural Concrete (FRC)

Our concrete products are comprised of natural materials, granite stone powder, Portland cement, nylon net and water. Much like any natural material such as wood or stone, concrete is a porous material. We have sealed your concrete with a wax sealer that will provide active protection against staining. To ensure the lasting beauty of your concrete surfaces we recommend reviewing and practicing the following care and maintenance instructions.

After Installation

The product has been sealed for protection against moisture and staining. Once the pieces have been waxed we recommend allowing them to remain free of objects on the surface for at least 6 to 12 hours. This enables the wax to penetrate the material evenly before the beginning of regular use. The wax we use is a paraffin based substance that hardens the material and protects the surface from staining.

Cleaning your Product

Clean your FRC product using mild soap (such as dish soap) and water. Do not use heavy abrasive, bleach-based, or ammoniated cleaners. Use of such cleansers will wear down the wax protection and result in less stain resistance. We do not recommend use of most natural cleansers (which are often citrus-based), as the cleaning agent is typically highly acidic and can damage natural materials.

Regular Maintenance

Re-wax periodically. Waxing your product regularly is a quick and easy process that will provide additional protection against staining. Wax once within 2 months of installation of your product and every 3 to 6 months thereafter, depending on use and location. If the product is placed outside, wax it well before winter. Cover and raise off the ground! Recommended product for this our Repair- and Polish Wax or any other commercially available Stone floor fax on paraffin base.

Avoiding Stains

Regular food preparation will not stain the concrete as the sealer and wax serve as active barriers. In the event that the coating is knowingly cut, scraped, or damaged, new wax should be reapplied. Spills should be wiped up as soon as possible. While the waxing performs well against stains from oils and acidic materials, prolonged exposure may cause penetration of the sealer and possible discoloration.

Expect occasional rings to appear from unknown liquids. Oils, in particular can penetrate the surface if forced in from the weight of a glass or jar. Wiping up oil spills can minimize staining.

Please note that bath oils, in particular should not be used as they will cause staining from being left in contact with the surface of the concrete for too long. The first stain is always the worst.

Expect the wear of your product to contribute to its uniqueness. Using felt or rubber feet pads is recommended for the bottom surfaces of all objects left to remain on the surface of your product indefinitely, especially unglazed ceramics such as terracotta pots. Unglazed ceramics compete for residual moisture in the concrete and may cause discoloration. Do not place hot objects on the surface as they may cause discoloration. Using a trivet is recommended. At any point, refrain from putting blue painter’s tape or other adhesives directly on the product.

Although not considered a defect, non-structural hairline cracks are possible and may result from shrinkage and the natural curing process. If hairline cracks do appear, immediately apply a thick coat of wax and rub in well to prevent moisture from seeping into the cracks and causing discoloration. Re-wax the area and surrounding surfaces periodically as detailed above.

Please see in store for cleaning and maintenance products.

Quartz/Stone – Care & Maintenance Information

Quartz stone is a product which is about 90% quartz based. This product has outstanding properties to ensure ease of maintenance and longevity of your surfaces. It will withstand exposure to tea, soda, wine, vinegar, lemon juice and strongly coloured substances.

Everyday cleaning

Quartz stone requires very little maintenance to keep the surface looking like new. For everyday, routine cleaning we recommend wiping the surface with warm soapy water (a mild detergent) and a soft cloth. For stubborn stains use Quartz Stone Cleanser…..available on request.

By following the proper care and maintenance of your reconstituted stone, you should have many years of enjoyment from the product.

Reconstituted Stone is an extremely strong material but you should avoid:

-Sitting, standing or climbing on surface.

-Cutting food directly on the surface.

-Knocking, dropping or bumping the product with heavy items.

-Exposure to strong chemicals and solvents.

-Avoid using product outdoors.

Polishing

As Quartz stone is virtually non-porous it will keep its lustrous gloss and ultra smooth surface with out polishing, and it never needs sealing.

Heat Resistance

Quartz stone will tolerate very brief exposures to moderately hot temperatures, however prolonged direct contact with, or radiated heat from very hot pots can cause thermal shock, discolouration or damage. Therefore we do not recommend placing hot pots, pans, electric frying pans and oven trays directly from the hotplate or out of the oven onto the surface of quartz stone. We always recommend the use of a hot pad or trivet to place hot items on.

Warranty

5 year limited warranty from supplier to original purchaser based on normal use and care.

Regular, Normal Wear and Usage

Your Adriatic furniture purchase, is your investment in your home. With time and as your furniture adapts to your home, you will see variation in colour, shape and characteristic.

We have outlined below some of the features you should come to expect with the natural changes of your furniture.

Leather & Fabric Sofas and Chairs.

When you first receive your fabric or leather Sofa, you may notice slight compression of the foam and padding. With use and over time these compression marks should gradually subside.

Moreover the foam, padding and suspension of your lounge will lose resiliency and soften over time and this occurrence should not be confused with loss of resiliency. This softening may cause light creasing, wrinkling or slight stretching in the high usage areas. This is a completely normal occurrence which only enhances the look and feel of your Sofa. We recommend that you rotate your seating position to even the wear of the cushions to create an even softening or wrinkling.

Solid Timber Tables, Buffets and Cabinets

At Adriatic Furniture we use a range of solid timbers.

As timber is natural material every product made from it will be unique. Variations in colour, veins, knots, grain, cracks, splits, stress marks, blemishes and indentations from the growth history of each tree are common and in some cases bowing may occur. These characteristics are all normal, should not be considered a fault in anyway and are expected to develop over time.

FRC-Fibre Reinforced Concrete Tables, Buffets & Occasional Pieces.

New to Adriatic Furniture is Fibre Reinforced Concrete. Modern and industrial in appearance, the concrete is Man-made and is subject to variation in tone and colour which we consider a feature between one table and another. With time you might notice marks, stains or hairline cracks, which are considered natural occurrences and should not be considered faults in any way.
