Care and Cleaning: Cleaning Fine Wood Furniture and Laminates

Accidental spills

Spilled liquids should be wiped up promptly with a soft absorbent cloth.


Periodic dusting

Clean with a slightly damp soft cloth, using another soft cloth to dry.

Always wipe in the direction of the wood grain.


Regular/Monthly cleaning

Lightly soiled areas may be cleaned with wood cleaner products, following the cleaner’s directions.

Surfaces should be cleaned with a soft cloth, wiping in the same direction as the wood grain, and dried with a soft clean cloth.


Polishing wood furniture

We do not recommend using commercial wax or polish which may leave undesirable residues.

If polishing is desired, use a polish that is silicone free, such as Guardsman Wood Polish.

Oil, ammonia, and silicon products should never be used on wood furniture.


Cleaning Metal and Painted Metal Surfaces

Lightly soiled areas may be cleaned with a soft cloth and a mild liquid detergent.


Sanitizing Jagar Furniture Surfaces

For sanitizing hard surfaces against the COVID-19 virus the CDC recommends using diluted household bleach solutions (minimum 1/3 cup of bleach for every gallon of water, or a 2% bleach solution) or isopropyl alcohol solution (70% isopropyl).


Leave sanitization solution on for at least 30 seconds but no longer than 2 minutes. Thoroughly remove the solution from the surface with a clean cloth and warm water. Please note that these solutions may cause discoloration if left on the surface longer than the suggested time or if not removed after sanitizing.


The CDC recommendations are outlined in the link below. Please be advised that we cannot guarantee that some Disinfection Chemicals will not have an adverse effect on the finish.
