While different products and materials have specific care requirements, there are some best practices we recommend you follow in order to keep your Marrimor object looking tip-top.
- Unless an object is outdoor rated, put it in a location where the temperature doesn’t vary too much between hot and cold
- Objects prefer low humidity, so reduce the humidity as much as possible in the room where it lives
- Uneven or jagged items may cause scratches on hard surfaces and snags on soft surfaces, so it’s best to keep those away from objects
- Direct sunlight can discolour certain materials over time, so avoid keeping an object in direct sunlight for any extended period of time
- Always use a coaster under liquids and hot or cold dishes
- Any fabric that contains a significant amount of dye, such as indigo dyed denim, may cause contact discolouration on furniture
The safest way to care for upholstery fabric is to have it cleaned by either a dry cleaner or professional upholstery cleaner at the lowest possible temperature with gentle solvents and cleaners.
- If staining or spilling occurs on an upholstered product, dab the affected area as quickly as possible with a clean, dry cloth. If staining persists consider having a professional cleaner try to remove it
- For crumbs and dust, the upholstery attachment on your vacuum can be used to gently clean fabric
- For velvet and mohair, use a velvet brush to maintain the appearance of the fabric. With these fabrics some crushing can happen over time, but that’s part of the charm of the material
- Boucle fabrics require extra special care, so it’s best to always have an experienced professional clean it
Metal objects are powder coated to provide a durable, uniform finish. Powder coated metal resists rust, water damage and extreme temperature changes, but it’s not impregnable. Basic care should be taken to keep the object in good condition.
- Carefully remove any stains or markings with a moistened non-abrasive sponge
- For more difficult stains or markings, use a pH-neutral soap along with a non-abrasive brush
- Wipe dry immediately with a clean cloth
- Never use a solvent-based cleaner on a powder coated surface
- Salt water is particularly damaging to powder coated finishes, so keeping metal objects outdoors in coastal climates is not recommended
- To restore sheen on a powder coated object, apply a thin layer of auto wax and wipe it off once the wax has dried
