            2.1 If is a full shaded location, it will need monthly cleaning as your fine Furniture;  dry new "fine cotton" rag to

                  anti dust. Some high-end oils can be lightly applied once every 4-6 months (always applyng on the

                  rag, never over the wood direct).

            2.2  If is a sunny direct light exposure, it may need professional maintenance on the outside face every year.
