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.

Does all the wood furniture in my home need to match?

HallTable1Have you ever walked into a furniture shop before? Maybe you have noticed how they arrange their products according to the colour and style? This leads you to believe that when you buy furniture, they have to all match accordingly. If you are one of these people who think like this, maybe it’s time to change your thought process…

Does my furniture have to match?

The answer is no. Matching furniture is a thing of the past – especially when it comes to wooden furniture. You don’t need to buy the matching side tables and chair all in the same colour and finish, just to get that harmonious look. Furniture doesn’t have to match, but it should coordinate.

What makes matching and coordinating different?

Yes, matching and coordinating are two related words but with plenty of differences. When you say matching furniture, they are all in the same style, tones and finish. The pieces of furniture are often selected from a set of furniture with the same style. In other words, matching furniture can look plain and boring.

cabinetOn the other hand, furniture that coordinates can be taken from different sets of furniture collections but all work together to create a harmonious look inside a room. There may be different finishes, or you may combine new furniture with what you currently have. You see, creating a coordinated look doesn’t mean getting furniture with the same style.

Does all the wood furniture in my home need to match?

No – it doesn’t!However, if you want that plain, matching look for your home, you can go for it. You just have to remember that getting a coordinated look can allow you to be creative and experiment with furniture styles and designs. After all, wood furniture can fit any home décor and style perfectly – your imagination is the only limit!
