HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR WOODEN FURNITURE
Your garden sofa, 2-seater sofa suite, 3-seater sofa suite, the coffee table, your dining set, the small corner table you keep your books or plants on—chances are they are all made out of wood. Wooden furniture is beautiful. It is sleek, artistic, sophisticated, and brings a certain warmth to your house in a way no other material can. But wooden furniture can also be hard to maintain. You have so many things to look out for—dust, water damage, fading. It can be hard sometimes, especially if you don't quite understand what to do. It's why we bring you some tips to protect and take care of your wooden furniture.
Minimize Sun Damage
Wooden furniture glows in the sunlight. It has this unique sort of timelessness that you yearn for because it's what you've seen in the Architectural Digest. It is cinematic, stunningly elegant. But too much exposure to the sun can cause fading, discolouration, and a phenomenon known as spotting. It is widespread in outdoor furniture like garden sofas. To avoid these problems is, you can cover it with a table cloth or close the blinds and curtains as often as possible and varnish the wood to protect it against UV rays.
Dust, Dust, Dust
It is easy for dust to collect over a wooden surface. It spoils the look of the furniture and probably has you sneezing all the time. To keep your wooden furniture sparkling and polished, you need to dust as often as you can. Even doing it on a bi-monthly basis is sufficient. Always remember to use a soft, dry cloth like cotton to clean your furniture, and you're good to go!
Protect Your Wood
Wooden furniture can endure a lot of damage over time. Small nick, scratches along your 3 seater sofa set or 2 seater sofa suite, heat damage from that too hot crockpot, rings over the dining table are a regular occurrence. But the more it happens, the more it messes with the material. So, remember to use coasters and potholders when you're keeping food. You can fix small scratches by using a scratch remover to restore the wood. Be careful, treat your furniture well, and it will thank you!
Wax and Polish Regularly
As time passes, wooden furniture becomes worn and loses its lustre. To prevent this, you need to oil and wax your wood regularly. It adds a layer of protection and returns radiance and shine to your furniture. Do it once in three months, and your furniture will look as good as new.
To maintain that classy appeal of wood of garden sofas, take care of your furniture and give it a long life.
