Care + Preservation

Plastic Laminates & Metal Surfaces

Most HPL and metals may be cleaned with a damp cloth or ordinary window cleaning solution. Do not use harsh or abrasive cleansers. More stubborn dirt may be removed with the careful application of a lacquer thinner. Please observe all safety warnings and follow application instructions supplied with the specific cleaner.

Wood Finishes

Our finishes are achieved with aniline dyes and wood pigments with at least two coats of state-of-the-art lacquer and UV protectant. This provides a very durable finish that is resistant to staining and scratching. Wood finishes can be cleaned with a damp cloth or a mild cleaning solution. Abrasive cleaners should never be used. The use of harsh or abrasive cleansers will void our warranty. The TMC wood finishes, like all wood finishes, can be light sensitive, therefore care should be taken to avoid placing your chairs in areas exposed to intense natural light. There are variations common to all wood species, so the color and grain characteristics of our finish samples may not exactly match the finish of the furniture you receive from us.


Customers should make inspections no less than every six months to look for damage or signs of structural fatigue incurred in daily handling, use and abuse. Your examination should include welds, machine screw assemblies and tightness of joints. If you discover problems that could compromise the structural safety of a chair, table or other product, you should immediately remove it from service and TMC should be notified.
