Care & Maintenance for WING

Glass

Our tempered glass is a type of safety glass processed by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength, and it is four times stronger than regular glass. We offer clear and ultra-clear sanded and painted glass that comes in different thicknesses, from 3/16 inch thick to one inch thick with a variety of edgework like flat polished and beveled edge.

CLEAR GLASS

ROUTINE CARE & MAINTENANCE

  • Use a soft cloth and any normal household glass cleaning product such as Windex® to clean your clear glass
  • You can also use mild, pH-neutral soap such as Dawn® and clean water
  • Be careful of overspray and wipe off any fluid that gets on the frame

EXTENSIVE CARE & MAINTENANCE

  • If stains persist, most can be removed by blotting the stained areas with a dampened soft cloth soaked with vinegar or lemon juice
  • For light scratches, use a buffing compound such as car wax
  • Using the buffer with 6,000 grit sandpaper, lightly buff the glass until scratches disappear

SANDED OR PAINTED GLASS

The sanded or painted side of the glass should always face down; it should never be used as the top (i.e. the work surface). This is because it can scratch, and also because stains and dirt on the sanded side are more difficult to clean than on the top side. Avoid the use of any sharp tools on the sanded top side of the glass.

ROUTINE CARE & MAINTENANCE

  • Use a soft cloth and clean water to remove light dust or dirt
  • For more persistent dirt and grime, use water mixed with mild, pH-neutral soap such as Dawn® and clean water
  • Avoid abrasive or harsh chemicals on the sanded side; they can abrade and even remove the finish

EXTENSIVE CARE & MAINTENANCE

  • If stains persist, most can be removed by blotting the stained areas with a dampened soft cloth soaked with isopropyl alcohol to remove residue or marks

Glides

Our glides are constructed of high-quality materials including nylon, rubber, thermoplastic polyurethane, felt, or stainless steel. Glides can be fixed, adjustable or even self-leveling. Over time, the glides wear down and should be inspected frequently. If not, worn glides can damage the furniture and flooring. Wear rates vary on flooring type and texture. When possible, lift furniture (rather than dragging) to move it.

ROUTINE CARE & MAINTENANCE

  • Inspect frequently
  • Replace worn glides as needed
  • Replacement glides are available through your sales specialist

JANUSfiber® & Synthetic Fiber

Our handwoven JANUSfiber® and synthetic fiber furniture requires minimal maintenance. Our fiber lineup includes JANUSfiber (made from high density polyethylene) and Vertex Fiber (made from polyester and hemp). Both fibers are colorfast, UV- and stain-resistant, and 100% recyclable. These fibers are a very good choice for humid and salty environments, and installations in a varying range of temperatures. While these durable materials will not mildew, any contaminants on their surfaces could foster mildew growth, so regular cleaning of the pieces is recommended.

ROUTINE CARE & MAINTENANCE

  • Vacuum to remove loose dirt
  • Prepare a cleaning solution of 2 ounces (1/4 cup) of mild, pH-neutral soap such as Dawn® and 8 cups of lukewarm clean water (less than 100°F/38°C)
  • Use a sponge or soft cloth to clean
  • Rinse thoroughly with clean water
  • Allow to air dry

Natural Stone

JANUS et Cie uses a diverse mix of natural stone on our collections. Each stone brings its own beauty to the item. Our stone can vary in finish ranging from honed, polish or flamed. There are different levels of porousness in each stone, which can affect the amount of absorption and stain resistance. Some of our more porous materials are reinforced with an epoxy fill.

All of our stones are natural materials that we source from around the world. There can be variations in texture, color, veining, and patterns from one top to another. These differences and disparities are part of what makes the stone beautiful.

Our stone is treated with INTENSIFIATM by Dry-Treat. It is a combination of enhancer and sealer. This gives our stone a deep, long-lasting color enrichment and premium water- and oil-based stain protection. Our sealer does not protect the stone surface from being etched by acidic liquids or materials.

For installations in locations with continuous periods of freezing temperatures, cracks may occur in the natural stone with the expansion and contraction of the top as a result of these weather conditions. Storing your stone top indoors if possible or using a frame cover can help protect it during the off season or when not being used for extended timeframes.

Be wary of extreme changes in temperature as it could possibly damage your stone top. Using trivets and potholders is highly recommended to protect the stone when serving hot dishes. Coasters are also recommended to prevent possible water rings.

ROUTINE CARE & MAINTENANCE

  • Use a microfiber cloth to dust off the surfaces.
  • Wash with mild, pH-neutral soap such as Dawn® and clean water using a non-abrasive cloth or sponge.
  • Use of harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners is not recommended. They can scratch, pit, and etch the surface of the stone.
  • Spills have the potential to stain. Porous stones are more susceptible to soaking up spills, which can discolor their surfaces. Clean spills immediately by wiping with a soft damp cloth.

EXTENSIVE CARE & MAINTENANCE

  • We also recommend regularly cleaning with a stone cleaner formulated with a neutral pH, such as Oxy-Klenza Stone Cleaner (JeC Item #799-40-101-01-00). Please follow manufacturer’s instructions.
  • For stubborn stains on stone, a poultice of ammonia will remove most organic stains from marble. Dampen a paper towel or cloth with ammonia mixed with water, and cover the stain for 24-48 hours to remove. Household baking soda can absorb organic stains as well. Sprinkle the stained area with the baking soda and let it sit for 24-48 hours. Wipe clean and reseal (please refer to instructions below).
  • Stone tops will need to be resealed based on use and environment. Before applying a new coat of INTENSIFIATM sealer (JeC Item #799-40-100-01-00), please make sure your stone top is clean. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Depending on usage and location, this may need to be done multiple times a year. Please see your sales specialist for details.

Rattan

Among the strongest and most versatile of natural fibers, rattan has been intertwined with the craft of woven furniture for hundreds of years. We use only the highest grade of these strong and resilient plant materials, and employ skilled artisans immersed in traditional weaving techniques to shape, weave and finish each piece. Following tradition, we produce a truly handmade product for interior spaces that is light, durable and infinitely beautiful. Rattan is a renewable material providing the decisive attribute of a “green” product. Using rattan helps to maintain economic sustainability for families who have been farming and cultivating this crop for centuries.

ROUTINE CARE & MAINTENANCE

  • Vacuum to remove loose dirt
  • Prepare a cleaning solution of 2 ounces (1/4 cup) of mild, pH-neutral soap such as Dawn® and 8 cups of lukewarm clean water (less than 100°F/38°C)
  • Use a sponge or soft cloth to clean
  • Rinse thoroughly with clean water
