MATERIALS & PRODUCT CARE
A little ongoing care is required to keep a Sparks & Dust product looking at its best.
Don’t worry, it’s not too much effort and will help ensure longevity of your item.
All our products are designed for indoor use only. If you have specific requirements for an outdoor piece, you will need to get in contact with us so we can provide you with a quote.
Australian Hardwood Timber:
We tend to use Tassie Oak, mixed Ashes (Victorian and Tasmania) and Blackbutt timbers in our products.
Whilst we carefully select the timber, it is a natural product and can change over time. Please note, Sparks & Dust timber products will vary in colour and grain. Each piece is unique, especially when reclaimed materials are used (these will have differences in weathering and colour).
Sparks & Dust products are finished with Osmo oil, which is made from natural oils and waxes.
It is recommended that any spills are cleaned immediately and coasters are used. Items should not be consistently exposed to direct sunlight as this can change the timber colour. It is possible to recoat the timber with Osmo without any sanding.
All steel in a Sparks & Dust product is powdercoated. This is a dry finishing process that covers the raw metal into a smooth colour. It provides a harder finish that is tougher than conventional paint, however all products are designed for indoor use only.
Steel Care: Wipe with soft cloth and water. You can use a duster to wipe off any dust. Avoid abrasive cleansers, steel brushers and chemical cleaners.
