How to clean wood furniture properly

burl table with flower box underneathCleaning wood furniture can seem a bit scary but it’s not.
Preventing dust build up with a great idea for the health of your family and to help prevent allergies.

Ways to clean your wood furniture properly:

  1. Dust the surfaces
  2. Don’t use spray polish
  3. Vacuum regularly

Dust the surfaces

Regularly dust the wood furniture by using soft, lint-free cloth. Avoid using feather dusters as they often have sharp quills that may cause scratches on the wood surface and are not always effective in removing dirt. Make sure to follow the direction of the grain to prevent the build-up of grime.

Don’t use spray polish

Never use spray polish as it can dull your wood furniture. Spray polish will simply give you that fragrant of a clean smell but not actually remove any dirt.

Stay hygienic by regularly checking every corner of your furniture to maintain dust free air rather than spreading the fragrant smell of spray polish that contains chemical which can cause health problems. Silicon sprays add a coating to wood which over time can cause the wood to deteriorate.

Wooden furniture care tips this winter!

cabinetWhether you have just bought a new piece of wooden furniture or the set you have is several years old, you’ll want to keep it looking at its best. If caring for your wooden furniture is your concern, all the more it is wise to know caring tips this winter.

Winter care for your wooden furniture

To keep your wooden furniture functional and beautiful through the years, you have to maintain it. The first key towards wooden furniture care is to clean it regularly. Cleaning it regularly will preserve its beauty and prevent dirt accumulation.

Winter is the time of the year when the temperature drops and we turn on the heater or use the fire to keep warm, this warm air can be very drying to our furniture. Wooden furniture is as vulnerable dry air as it can be to moisture and dampness. They can be easily damaged. The good news is you can keep your wooden furniture at its best state – even during winter!

Here are some winter tips that you can follow:

Tip #1: Put it in the right place

Your furniture should not be exposed to direct sunlight or hot air blasts of your heater. In winter, exposing your furniture to cold might also cause the wood to expand and contract damaging its beauty. When positioned near a window, be sure to close your window when the air begins to cool and dampen. By drawing the curtains or blinds once it gets dark you prevent the heat from your home escaping out the glass of the window and the cold rushing in.

Tip #2: Wipe spills away immediately!

If water or other liquid is spilt on your furniture, wipe it up immediately? Keeping your furniture dry in a must, don’t throw your wet jacket over the back of a wooden chair. Make sure to dry up your furniture if any spills occur.

Tip #3: Use water proof treatment

Wooden furniture can be treated or oiled. During winter, your best choice is to check your furniture’s surface and see if it needs reapplying. Oiling or treating your furniture will make them water resistant and less likely to be damaged by a spill.

Debunking the common myths about wooden furniture

Lovely Solid Wood Table from West Coast TimbersWe all know that wooden furniture looks lovely. It has that rich colour that gives off a warm feeling. Every home with wooden furniture exudes charm and elegance. However, some homeowners are hesitant to choose wooden furniture. It’s not because they don’t agree with the timelessness of wooden furniture. It’s because they have heard all of these wooden furniture myths– and they’re not sure if they are true or not.

Wooden furniture myths

These myths might be common, but it doesn’t mean they are true. Here are some myths about wooden furniture and you might also think some sound very familiar:

  • Wooden furniture is not eco friendly
  • Wooden furniture is difficult to maintain
  • Wooden furniture is expensive

fishtankBaseWooden Furniture Is Not Eco Friendly

Just because they are made of wood, doesn’t mean they are not helping the environment? That is not true – wooden furniture does come from trees but these trees are harvested and cut down because they have matured.Often, these trees are grown in plantations or from development sites where the trees are being removed. If the trees from development sites and roadworks are not used, in wooden furniture or flooring then the timber would be wasted and that would not be environmentally friendly.

Wooden Furniture Is Difficult To Maintain

This is probably the most common lie told about wooden furniture. Would furniture isn’t difficult to maintain but it does require a little bit maintenance. The wood has natural oils that protect the furniture and let it age gracefully over time these oils need to be replaced and sealed in.

Why choose wooden furniture when there is a cheaper alternative? You get what you pay for; cheaper furniture will often  warp, crack or break. Wooden furniture will often outlast you and can endure daily wear and tear. With proper care, wooden furniture will be a once off buy and with proper care can pretty much last forever. It may cost a little bit in comparison to plastic furniture but eventually the extra cost will pay off and think of the time saving not having to buy new furniture every few years.

Everything about wooden furniture that you need to know!

Solid Wood Table by West Coast TimbersDo you often wonder why wooden furniture is simply irresistible?

What makes it so unique and such a classic piece?

That is because when a hardwood is used, every board tells its own story. No 2 pieces will ever look the same – that is the real beauty of wooden furniture. Wooden furniture reflects a uniqueness that no other furniture can match it.

  • Wooden furniture is unique
  • Hardwood colour variations
  • Don’t accept a synthetic substitute!

Wooden furniture is unique

It takes many years for a tree to reach its full maturity before they are cut down and make it into some awesome pieces of furniture. Each tree has a unique grain pattern and texture. When manufactured, the individual boards and timbers will reflect this sole process and make each piece of wooden furniture a one-off. The grain patterns are made by the tree’s growth ring? It shows one for every year. Therefore,a piece of wooden furniture with countless patterns means that the hardwood has reached maturity.

Wooden Table by West Coast TimbersHardwood colour variations

Have you ever looked closely at your wooden furniture and noticed all the different colours? Each hardwood may show off 2 or more shades of colour; this shows the standard trademark of the particular hardwood that is used in the furniture piece.

Why does the timber have these colour ranges?

The outside part of the wood shows off a lighter colour compared to what’s inside, which are

usually darker. Some woods may also show off dissimilar colours due to the minerals present and other elements affecting the tree’s growth.

Tv Cabinet 1Don’t accept a synthetic substitute!

Solid wooden furniture has become the standard in top quality furnishings, never settle for anything less. Wooden furniture may have many synthetic substitutes – but don’t accept them! Always ask plenty of questions and have a critical eye for each wooden furniture that catches your attention. No synthetic substitute can look and feel as authentic -as a piece of wooden furniture. Laminated or wood substitutes won’t last like wooden furniture can and sometimes they can even give off orders from the large amount of glues that have been used in making the furniture.

All about wooden furniture

For quality wooden furniture, contact West Coast Timbers. We offer first rate wooden furniture every time. Each piece of hardwood is manufactured directly at our very own mill. We have readymade furniture and we also take orders for custom made furniture. Just let us know – what you have in mind. Call West Coast Timbers today and let’s discuss your needs.
