ADVICE AND RECOMMENDATIONS
1. In order to ensure the accurate delivery of the purchased item, it is advisable to utilize a marker to label the back of the item (applicable for items on display).
2. When unpacking imported furniture, it is possible to find signs of rust on the surface plating, fittings, handles, hinges, etc. This can occur due to the presence of salt particles from the sea.
3. The presence of humidity or inadequate ventilation can lead to the growth of fungus on furniture surfaces.
4. To prevent the transfer of humidity from the ground to the furniture (via osmosis), it is recommended to use a plastic base.
5. It is important to always keep furniture doors closed, as temperature variations can cause the outer surface to dry faster than the inner surface. This can result in asymmetrical or warped doors.
6. Water leakage can cause timber or board swelling, and the use of inappropriate chemical solutions can lead to permanent damage to the furniture.
