Caring for Your Epoxy Resin Masterpiece: Top Tips from Alderwood Studios

Updated: Nov 28, 2023

At Alderwood Studios, we understand that your epoxy resin table is not just a piece of furniture; it's a work of art that deserves the best care. Here are some top tips to ensure your investment stays as stunning as the day it arrived.

1. Avoid Extreme Temperatures:

Epoxy resin is sensitive to temperature fluctuations. Keep your table away from direct sunlight (conservatories) and sources of extreme heat or cold to prevent warping or discoloration over time.

2. Use Coasters and Trivets:

While hardwoods, epoxy resin and the coating it's finished with are top end and durable, it's essential to protect its surface from hot pans, sharp objects, and heavy items. Always use coasters for drinks and trivets for hot dishes to prevent scratches or heat damage.

3. Regular Cleaning:

Clean your table regularly with a mild, non-abrasive cleanser and a soft cloth. Avoid harsh chemicals, as they can damage the epoxy finish. A gentle cleaning routine will help maintain its shine and clarity.

4. Mindful Placement:

Consider the placement of your table within your home. Avoid conservatories and be mindful of high-traffic areas where it may be prone to accidental bumps or scratches. Also, be cautious about placing heavy objects directly on the surface.

5. Handle with Care:

When moving the table or placing objects on it, lift rather than slide to prevent scratching. For large pieces, consider using furniture sliders to reduce friction.

6. Regular Inspections:

Periodically inspect your table for any signs of wear, such as small scratches or imperfections. This can include the base it comes with - tightening and fixings that may have come loose over time (careful not to over-tighten, the top will want to shift slightly throughout the seasons).

7. Reapply Protective Coatings:

Depending on usage, consider reapplying a protective coating, like a wax or polish, every few months. This will enhance the luster of the epoxy resin and provide an additional layer of protection. Alderwood Studios can recommend products on a project by project basis.

8. Humidity Control:

Maintain a stable humidity level in your home. Epoxy resin can be sensitive to extreme changes in humidity, which may affect its appearance and structural integrity.

By following these tips, you can ensure that your Alderwood Studios epoxy resin table remains a breathtaking centerpiece in your home for years to come. Remember, a little care goes a long way in preserving the beauty of your custom masterpiece.
