So you’ve bought those cherry tree chairs and that wonderful harvest family table, now how can you make certain they’re going to last a lifetime? Many people will agree with the fact that taking good care of wood furniture is quite simple. Using the right tools and cleansers you may make sure your wood pieces of furniture will be a source of pride in your residence and will also last for a number of decades, never going out of style.
Among the worst environmental elements for wood furniture is humidity, based on where you reside to make sure your wooden furnishings are cared for properly for any conditions it is subjected to. If you are living within a humid part of the country you may need to only pay for tropical hardwoods that will stand up to the changes in dampness. In case your wooden furnishings are exposed to changes in moisture it will expand and contract if the atmosphere gets drier. I recommend using a de-humidifier in high humidity spots to soak up all that extra dampness in the air so that it doesn’t have an affect on your furniture.
Once you’ve worked out just how much you should be concerned about moisture affecting your furniture, it’s pretty uncomplicated to take care of your home furniture. You should dust routinely, so nothing builds up on the surface and you will keep it looking gorgeous. Dust is pretty abrasive to wood, which means you have to be very careful in how you dust. Do not use too much water while you are dusting as if it pools or stains it’s going to be challenging to eliminate those stains. Employ a moist cloth and dust with the grain, to ensure you won’t notice any streaks left behind. After you are finished dusting I would suggest employing a product made specifically for treating wood, I personally use flaxseed oil (or linseed oil) as it gives the wood a more natural shine, although it doesn’t prevent scratches.
