Tips on Maintaining Wooden Furniture

Wooden furniture is a beautiful addition to any home, inside or outside. It must be properly maintained in order to stay beautiful and last for the intended life expectancy of the piece. There are some tips to maintain wood furniture such as living room furniture and keep it looking like it did when it was on display in the furniture store.

Placement of the furniture is important because sunlight can cause the wood to fade or crack. The avoidance of direct sunlight and prevention of dust are both preventive measure in the care of wooden and teak furniture. Teak furniture always has decorative carvings making it important to dust it regularly for the prevention of dust build up in the design. The appearance being improved by lack of dust is a bonus; the dust can cause the wood to age prematurely.

Wooden furniture should be kept moist, but not with water. Simply using a damp cloth to provide moisture to the wood is not enough, instead essential oils and professional options for care containing natural orange oil that the furniture will absorb is the best option. This will help to extend the life of the piece while making it look its best longer. It is important not to place the furniture in an overly damp environment since the wood will expand and warp losing its initial appeal, and make functional pieces less functional as drawers will have a tendency to stick.

Scratches can ruin the look of wooden furniture. Avoid setting objects that could damage the surface onto them. Objects such as metal will easily mar the surface. Placing a protective covering over the furniture is a good idea, especially if it is a wooden table top. When using outdoor wooden furniture there are more precautions to take.

Wood furniture that is meant for outdoor use should have a protective coating of a water repellent placed on it to help keep the elements from causing damage to it. The solution should penetrate the grain of the wood and more than one coat should be applied for maximum effectiveness. These should be allowed to dry thoroughly between applications. The outdoor furniture should also be covered in a wood stain or oil based paint with a brush or roller to help prevent aging and weather damage. This should not be done if it is misty, raining or otherwise damp outside. The finish needs to be allowed to dry overnight.

Once the paint has fully dried two coats of polyurethane should be applied with a varnishing paintbrush. The furniture should dry between coats, and the hinges and screws should be examined to ensure they are not rusty. These can be replaced with aluminum when they rust. A vinyl cover can be used to protect outdoor furniture overnight. The wood furniture should be brought indoors during the winter months. These tips will help to keep wooden furniture maintained and looking its best longer.
