Philux furniture is proudly Filipino and meticulously handmade by local craftsmen. We hope this care guide assists you in maintaining your pieces.
- Dust your furniture piece with a soft, dry cloth to protect its finish. Do not apply abrasives or household cleaners.
- Wood is a natural material and any exposure to natural elements such as sunlight, water, and heat may affect the quality and appearance of the piece.
- Furniture pieces are usually packed in PE foam or bubble wrap. Unwrap immediately to avoid potential markings.
- The finishes applied on our metal are of the same consistency as the finishes applied on our wood.
- Refrain from applying metal polish on the metal surfaces and only use a clean, damp cloth to wipe them.
- Metal polish can be applied to genuine brass decorative accents such as certain knobs or portions of select dining tables.
- Blot spills immediately and wipe with a clean, damp cloth.
- For washable fabrics, vacuum and clean with mild soap (Perwoll pink is recommended). For delicate fabrics, dry clean is recommended. Cushions can be vacuumed and spot-cleaned. Pillows and inner stuffing should be vacuumed only. For vegan leather, wipe with a clean, damp cloth.
- For more information, kindly refer to the care guides for each fabric collection below.
- Natural stone is prized for its aesthetic value - its beautiful colors, patterns, and graining - and its durability under general use. Given it is a naturally formed material, each stone is unique, making it even more special.
- Natural stone is inherently porous and thus, is susceptible to scratches, etching, and staining. It can absorb staining agents in spilled liquids, dropped food, and other substances. To protect against potential staining, our stone tops are properly sealed. However, the sealant is not a guarantee that the surface is completely stain-proof.
- Contact with acidic cleaning agents such as bleach and vinegar or acidic foods such as tomatoes and citrus fruit should be avoided. Abrasive scrapping pads should not be used. For extra protection, trivets should be used under hot objects, and coasters should be used under anything containing liquid.
- Accidents are inevitable. When food is dropped or liquid is spilled, remove the food or blot the liquid immediately to avoid stains. Note that wiping a spill could spread the liquid to other areas of the stone surface. The longer a substance is left on the stone, the more likely it is to stain.
- To clean natural stone tops, a mix of mild soap and warm water can be used. Use a soft wet cloth and dry it with a soft absorbent cloth. Another alternative would be to use Bar Keeper’s Friend Granite & Stone Cleaner & Polish. Apply small quantities on a soft dry cloth or paper towel and slowly rub it onto the affected area in a circular motion.
- It is recommended that you test either of the cleaning solutions on a small, inconspicuous area of the stone beforehand. Similar to any item cleaned in the home, an excessive concentration of cleaner or soap may leave a film, cause streaks, or affect the sheen of the stone. Follow manufacturer recommendations.
