In almost every home there is some sort of wood construction which will need regular maintenance to keep it in good condition. Here’s how customers can maintain it.

Wood care and maintenance

W

ood maintenance is a tedious task that takes time and effort to upkeep, but the natural beauty of wood far outweighs the effort.

WOODEN FLOORS The first step is to remove any old polish and grime from the surface to prevent clogging the sandpaper when sanding. Use mineral turpentine and steel wool to scrub off the dirt. If necessary, a wax stripper can also be used. Sand the floor, just enough to remove any ridges as well as the old surface coating. Make sure that there are no oily marks and that the floor is completely dry. Remember that good preparation is the key to a good finish. SEALING THE FLOOR A polyurethane sealer will be a perfect coating and the three coat system ensures good results. The first coat penetrates deeply into the wood, nourishing and revitalising it, especially if it is old. The second coat penetrates and bonds with the first and starts the surface finish. The third coat provides a hard surface finish that is scratch, water, alcohol and heat resistant, and easy to maintain. Wait at least 12 hours between coats. Always read the instructions on the tin and it is important to apply three coats. Work methodically so that you can reach back and apply more sealer to dull areas where the sealer is penetrating more than elsewhere. This is particularly important with the first

Then, if the wood has taken on a dull grey colour, the problem actually looks much worse than it really is (you don’t have to sand it out, just get to the wood and stop.) The wood is stained with mildew and bacteria and only needs a cleaning. Once the door has been sanded, cleaning it with wood reviver will clear up the problem – scrub the surface thoroughly with a stiff plastic brush. For safety, wear protective gloves. Once the blackened surface has been removed, wash down the wood with a hose and allow it to dry properly. If the wood hasn’t dried properly, your sealer will not last, so give it about 5-7 days. It is important to seal the wood with the same product that was originally used as different brands don’t always work if you put one over another. If your plan is to change to another brand, make sure you rid the wood completely of the original product. Give the door three coats, with 24-hour intervals.

many sizes and are suited for varied applications. In simple terms, a fountain or pond pump needs to be selected according to the volume of water that the water feature can hold, as well as the height the pump must lift water to. It is crucial to consider both measurements when selecting a suitable fountain pump. Most small ponds or water features require simple pumps, which only need to circulate water. Larger Pools/ponds, which have fountains or waterfall features, these will require stronger pump output. What to consider when selecting a suitable fountain or pond pump?

STEP 1

the pond needs to circulate every two hours • Use the following formula to work this out:

Litres x 0.5 = circulation rate per hour.

STEP 3 Measure the pump height required • The pump height is determined by measuring

the height, starting from the ponds surface, to the top/ highest point where the water must be pumped to.

Work out which pump you need by looking at the diagram and following step 4.

Care

Marketing Director Sub Sahara Africa for Dulux – which leads the annual trend research within this region. “It’s reminiscent of the colours of the morning sky and our desire to treasure our most human qualities, which we’ll need as we enter a new decade.” Sweeney continues, “Our trend research shows that people want to care, be playful, search for meaning and be creative – in fact, those desires now form the basis for our four colour palettes. With city-dwellers expected to rise from 55% in 2019 to 66% in 2020, we’re looking for a sense of peace and stillness, even as we rediscover the value of community. The growing global well-being industry, now worth $4.2 trillion, is further evidence that we’re embracing the positive influence that caring for ourselves and others can have on our lives.” The four supporting palettes are called Care, Play, Meaning and Creativity and they are all complement various spaces.

PALETTE Creates spaces to reconnect, perfect for office spaces and healthcare facilities. The warm, soft neutrals and pale pastels of this palette can be used to create spaces for positive interactions. These shades help to create mood-boosting places where people can spend quality time on their own, with other people or engaging with the natural world – places that help boost physical and mental wellbeing.
