Solid hardwood products add a level of beauty, value and durability second to none. With proper care, the good looks of solid hardwood products can last a lifetime.
Always remember that three seemingly harmless “things” are often not a friend to hardwood:
- Water can dull or mark the finish and if the exposure is extreme can even warp hardwood. Generally, splashes and slight damp contact are not an issue but incase your dugout got completely submerged, remove lid, contents and air dry the dugout for 12-24 hours. We use a hard coat finish on the exterior of our hardwood products that is water resistant but not completely water proof.
- Dirt can leave scratches. Use a soft microfibre cloth to clean your wood product.
- Sunlight’s ultraviolet rays, over time, can cause discolouration. Try not to leave your dugout in direct sunlight for extended periods of time.
