If a chair/barstool shows any sign of structural failure (i.e. hardware), Tablebases.com strongly recommends removing the piece from service immediately. Perform a thorough inspection of each chair/barstool once a month. Particular care should be taken in inspecting all joints for any loosening. One loose joint will put extra pressure on other joints, resulting in all joints loosening, which may eventually cause the chair/barstool to collapse. In the event that any joints become loose, take the chair/barstool out of service immediately and repair prior to putting the chair/barstool back into service. A common cause of loosening joints is customers rocking backwards in the chair/barstool. Care should be taken while handling the chairs/barstools for any reason. The chairs/barstools should not be dropped on the floor from any height, particularly when cleaning the floor and placing the chair/barstool on a table/bar. If the chair/barstool is dropped it will result in the finish chipping and the chair/barstool possibly breaking. Tablebases.com recommends cleaning all wood furniture with furniture polish. We suggest dark oil for mahogany, walnut etc., and lemon oil for light finishes such as natural and light oak. NEVER CLEAN ANY WOOD PRODUCT (CHAIRS, BARSTOOLS, OR WOOD TABLE TOPS) WITH ANY WATER BASED CLEANING SOLUTION OR WATER ITSELF. Cleaning any wooden furniture with water or a water based solution will result in the grain and finish raising and peeling. We suggest educating all employees on how to clean the tables and chairs appropriately to ensure the longevity and beauty of the product. Chairs and barstools should not be subjected to extreme temperature, particularly heat or moisture, near cooking facilities which will also result in the finish lifting and peeling. People should never stand on chairs/barstools in place of step stools or ladders. NOTE: Warranty may be voided if proper maintenance procedures are not followed
