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.

Tv Cabinet 1Vacuum regularly

Tidy away any build-up of grime that will damage your furniture over a periods of time. Vacuuming can deep clean your furniture removing dirt particles that have been caught in the edges of your furniture.
