Furniture Care Tips for Saving Wood from Heat

Heat, especially sun rays (UV rays) affect wooden furniture badly. Not only the wood finish cracks due to sun rays but they also affect wood by going deep resulting into hairline splits and more wider cracks on wooden furniture surface. It is therefore advisable to keep these wood furniture away from sun as far as possible. If any furniture piece has to be placed beside windows from where direct sunrays enter, care should be taken for proper arrangement of curtains, blinds, shades, or UV window protection. Outdoor wooden furniture, when not in use, can be kept covered with heat resistant protective cover to avoid destruction caused by direct sunlight.

Furniture Care Tips for Wood Polishing

Try to polish your wood furniture twice a month ( if not possible, at least make it once in a month). However, avoid using such polish that contains silicone, ammonia or alcohol as they can permanently damage your wood furniture surface. Rather try to use homemade polish by mixing one part lemon oil with three parts olive oil. For regular cleaning of wooden furniture, use a mild soap like diluted mixture of hand soap and water.
