Oak, natural (3062) & natural light (3041)

All Studio HENK furniture is made to last generations. That’s why we only work with high-quality materials, like European oak. All oak furniture is protected with hardwax oil. This is a combination of oil and wax. The wax ensures that the pores in the wood are completely filled, so that the wood is well protected against stains and spots.

Regardless of the type of wood you choose, wood is a natural product that needs a little bit of love and attention. To improve the natural durability of the wood, it is important that you care for your wooden furniture.
 

Humidity in your home

Keep in mind that wood is a natural, living material. If your room is too dry, wood works like a sponge and will eventually tear. Therefore, assuring the right level of humidity in the room will help ensure the durability of the wood. The relative humidity is different every day and depends on the weather conditions. We do advise you to keep the relative humidity in the room around 65%, or at least between 50% and 70%. This is not only good for your furniture, but also for your own health and your home. We advise you to regularly check your hygrometer for the percentage. A hygrometer indicates the percentage of moist in the room. Extensive thermometers and modern heating applications are also equipped with such a meter. Is the relative humidity too high or too low? You can maintain the right level with air humidifiers and dehumidifiers.

Note: it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure proper humidity, so that the wood does not tear.

Daily maintenance

The dining table is the perfect example of a product that needs daily care. We advise you to use the Eco Multi Cleaner Spray for daily cleaning of your oak furniture.
 

Half yearly maintenance

We advise you to maintain your wooden furniture every six months with Topoil, 3058 (colourless). You can apply the Topoil with a cotton cloth from Osmo.
 

In case of stains

For the removal of stains we advise you to contact the Osmo Store. They can give you a detailed cleaning advice.

If your furniture needs refurbishing, you can reapply hardwax oil. Follow the steps below. After refurbishing, the table will be well protected again.
