Care and Maintenance

To keep your oak floating shelves looking their best, it’s important to follow a few simple care tips:

  • Dust Regularly: Use a soft, dry cloth to dust the shelves regularly and keep them free from dirt and debris.
  • Avoid Excessive Moisture: Oak is durable but can be damaged by excessive moisture. Avoid placing shelves in areas with high humidity and wipe up any spills immediately.
  • Use Gentle Cleaners: If needed, use a mild soap solution and a damp cloth to clean the shelves, then dry them thoroughly.
