el employs a multi-step finishing process to its wood and veneer products. The finishes used are specifically formulated to provide long lasting durability and protection without the use of synthetic polymers or volatile organic compounds (VOC). The topcoat is a natural resin finish that protects the wood; however, the topcoat is not waterproof, and any liquid spilled on the surface must be wiped off immediately to avoid discoloration.
Due to the protective nature of the topcoat, the care for el furniture is similar to high quality varnished furniture. Cleaning only requires gently dusting the surface with a soft, moist, lint-free cloth. This should be followed with a drying cloth. Since dust can act as a potential abrasive, improper rubbing can result in fine hairline scratches. The application of any commonly available furniture polish should be avoided. For minor surface scratches and general wear and tear blemishes, a maintenance wax consisting of carnauba wax is recommended.
It is recommended that the furniture be placed out of direct sunlight.
el upholstery fabrics should occasionally be vacuumed to maintain their quality and appearance.
el upholstery leather should be dusted regularly. Avoid use of oils, waxes, etc. Leathers may occasionally be cleaned with a clean, soft, dampened cloth.
