Bed Frames and Timber Furniture

All materials and finishes used for products in the Okooko collection are chosen with consideration of quality, and wearability.

Although all of our furniture pieces are easy care and low maintenance there are a few things you can do to make sure your piece looks its best for longer.

To start there are a few Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do tighten the fittings on your bedframe a few weeks after set up and from time to time if required. Fitting should be firm but avoid over tightening as this can damage the frame.
  • Avoid placing in direct sunlight or near heating apparatus.
  • Don't leave wet or hot objects, nail polish or perfumes on polished surfaces, as they will damage the surface.
  • Don't use silicone based polishing cream or automotive polishing compounds.
  • Small marks and scratches can be touched up with coloured wax sticks. Ensure that you carefully remove any excess.
  • A professional refinisher should perform major repairs on damaged surfaces.
  • Rotate the position of your slats over the length of the bed frame at six monthly intervals. This will prolong the life of the slats.
  • Ensure you are on the correct slat system for your weight. Contact store of purchase if you are not.
  • Keep Assembly Instructions and assembly tool(s) in a safe place for ease of disassembly when moving, etc.

Timber is a natural product so variations in grain and colour will occur. These features highlight the individual character of your selected product and are a unique quality of natural timber. Timber also changes colour over time due to exposure to light and although our unique finish is designed to minimise this it will not prevent it completely. Variances in colour and grain are not considered a manufacturing fault.

Caring for your timber furniture:

  • To remove dust wipe surfaces with a damp or 'dust attracting' cloth. There is no need to use any specialist cleaners, furniture polishes, waxes or oils. A damp cloth is all you need.
  • It is advisable to shift the position of ornaments and objects on a regular basis. If this is not done often, they will leave a mark on the timber as all timber is affected by light.
  • Do not stand on open drawers as this may cause the drawers to break, or damage the drawer runner and/or cause the unit to tip over.

Adjusting to Your New Mattress

There is a settling-in period with any new mattress. Individual cases can vary from a few days to a couple of months. You may experience some back pain during this time as your spine realigns to its natural position.

Body Moulding

Okooko mattresses have a luxurious quilted comfort layer on top of the mattress. You will find over time that this will compress to some degree. This is a normal characteristic of premium bedding and merely indicates that the comfort layers are conforming naturally to your body shape and is not regarded as a manufacturing fault. Monthly rotation from end to end (please do not turn over single sided mattresses) will help to minimise these impressions and prolong the life of your Okooko mattress.

Mould and Mildew

Whilst all Okooko mattresses have anti-mould inhibitor, depending on the environment mattresses can occasionally develop mould / mildew on them. This is not considered a manufacturing fault. For optimum hygiene ensure your bedroom is well ventilated and dry.

General

  • Never fold or bend your Bodyfit pocket spring mattress (Bodyfit Active range). Only solid core latex mattresses (Bodyfit Energise range) may be folded.
  • Regularly rotate your mattress from end to end to maximise its life (our mattresses are single sided - please do not turn them over).
  • Keep your Bodyfit mattress clean and dry by using a quality, washable, mattress protector.
  • Do not allow anyone to stand or jump on your mattress.
  • For optimum sleep we recommend the use of a Bodyfit natural latex pillow.

Upholstered Fabric Product

Upholstered Furniture

Regular maintenance and care along with the following general Do's and Don'ts will ensure your upholstered piece of furniture remains looking its best.

  • Apply only water-based soil resistant (fabric protector) treatments. Do not use solvent based products.
  • Pilling can occur occasionally as a result of normal daily wear and should not beconsidered as a fault. Fibre pills can be removed by a battery operated pilling tool available from most haberdashery stores.
