Solid wood furniture is an investment that you expect to last a lifetime. To maintain natural beauty and protect your investment, solid wood furniture needs the right care.
Since wood expands and contracts with the variations in temperature and humidity, you should expect each piece of solid wood furniture to react differently depending on the type or species of wood used.
Follow these guidelines for your solid wood dining room furniture, living room furniture, bedroom furniture, kitchen furniture, home office furniture, bookcases, etc., and keep your furniture beautiful for years to come.
There are some simple things you can do to protect your fine furniture during everyday use. Following these tips can extend the life of the finish and the furniture itself.
Cleaning your solid wood furniture regularly will help maintain the value of your fine furnishings. Dusting and cleaning removes the buildup of grease, lint and dust that can get ground into or soften the finish.
Cleaning your furniture should be done with a soft, lint-free cotton cloth dampened with water. Follow the pattern of the grain, use a light touch and rotate your cleaning cloth frequently. Cleaning your furniture with a dry cloth can cause scratches to the finish.
Taking a little time to maintain your furniture investment properly will allow you to enjoy the lasting beauty of your solid wood furniture for many, many years.
