Only water based paint is used at Carl Hansen & Søn.

Water based paint has many benefits. Firstly, the paint is very durable and holds the color well over time. Secondly, the environmental impact of water-based paint is minimal in comparison to the use of paint based on solvents. Finally, water-based paint contributes to ensuring a good working climate for our employees.

Normal cleaning and maintenance

Daily cleaning is done with a clean dry cloth. Use a damp cloth soaked in clean water for light soiling. Harsh or abrasive cleaners should never be used as they can cause damage and, in the worst case, scratch the painted surface. It is not recommended to use sharp tools for cleaning as this can cause damage and deep scratches in the painted surface.

Special consideration

Although the painted surface is very strong, it cannot be avoided that, with daily use, minor marks and scratches can eventually occur on the surface. Armrests and the outer edges of the exposed furniture are especially vulnerable. Pay close attention to e.g., wristwatches, buttons and buckles on clothes.

Small scratches can be repaired with repair paint which can be ordered where you bought your furniture. Larger scratches and damage should always be repaired by a professional carpentry or painting workshop.
