HOW TO CARE FOR PETRIFIED WOOD
Petrified wood is wood that has turned into stone. When trees have been buried for many years under sediment they can transition into stone. While retaining the original structure of the stem tissue, all the organic materials are replaced with minerals. Each piece of petrified wood is unique and not two are alike in colour or shape. To fully enjoy your petrified wood furniture, please follow a few basic rules:
- Avoid exposure to direct sunlight and excessive heat or dampness.
- Don’t expose the furniture to scratches from pets or sharp objects.
- Use coasters and place felt pads under lamp bases and accessories.
Petrified wood is very fragile, so never use chemical cleaners. Usually, petrified wood can be cleaned with lukewarm water. If a cleaning product is necessary, use an extremely mild one like a mild hand soap or apple cider vinegar. Test the product on small areas first before applying it all over the wood.
Clean spills or smudges with a damp cloth. Do not use abrasive brushes, scrub pads or steel wool. For routine cleaning, use a soft jersey or microfiber cloth. Gently rub down the wood with a cloth and a small amount of hand soap or vinegar. The less products you use on petrified wood, the better.
