With the improvement of people's requirements for quality of life, solid wood furniture has been favored by more and more people, but if you do not pay attention to maintenance, even the best quality will affect the service life of solid wood furniture. Autumn and winter are the best seasons for health maintenance. While everyone is busy with autumn health and autumn, don't forget to give your home furniture maintenance.
How to maintain solid wood furniture as the weather gets colder and drier?
Keep indoor humidity
Solid wood is susceptible to environmental humidity and changes in swelling and shrinkage.
The coldness of winter causes the air moisture to decrease, coupled with the influence of air conditioning and heating, the furniture is more prone to cracking and even fading, so humidity is the key to furniture maintenance.
Can be improved by using a humidifier, placing a basin of water or green plants indoors(increase)Indoor humidity.
In addition, the moisturizing of wooden furniture can also use professional furniture care essential oil, which can lock the moisture in the wood, prevent the wood from cracking and deforming, and nourish the wood, prolong the service life of the furniture and avoid the furniture from getting wet.
Keep the indoor humidity, but do not place the furniture in a relatively humid space, it may cause the wooden furniture to wet and swell. It will be prone to decay and the drawer will not open.
Usually control the air humidity at40%-60%It is appropriate.
Keep away from heat
In the autumn and winter season, the furniture should be placed away from the heat source, at least1Around the meter.
If the furniture is too close to the heat source, it will easily cause the furniture to crack. The solid wood drawers and sliding doors may be difficult to open and close due to excessive expansion.
If you eat hot pot or soup food at home, remember to put a heat insulation mat. Because furniture burns is very difficult to repair.
Reduce window opening time
In autumn and winter, the time for window ventilation should be minimized.
Opening the window will make the outside cold air come in and make the room more dry, so the furniture should be placed indoors away from windows, doorways, etc.
Many people have such a wrong understanding, the indoor temperature is high, the window should be opened to keep the furniture ventilated to prevent furniture cracking.
In fact, the indoor temperature is high, the air is saturated, and the indoor humidity is higher than the outdoor.
The real cause of cracks in furniture is humidity rather than temperature, so when you open the window, you exchange the cold air outside and the interior is dry.
Therefore, the ventilation time should be reduced in the autumn and winter seasons, which is the correct way to maintain the furniture.
Avoid direct sunlight
If placed in a place with strong air flow such as doorway, window, and tuyere, the sunlight can be directly irradiated, which will crack and fade the furniture.
Although the sun is not as strong as the summer, the long-term sun exposure and the already dry climate make the wood too dry and prone to cracks and fading.
Furniture should not be placed near the air conditioner, because long-term exposure to higher temperatures will cause local cracking, warping deformation and qualitative change of the paint film.
Clean and maintain
Don't smash the dust on the furniture. The life of many wooden furniture will be affected by dust.
Furniture maintenance should not be simply wiped with a damp rag, but professional furniture care essential oil should be used, and the furniture should be regularly maintained.
Under normal circumstances, wax is applied once a quarter, so that the furniture looks shiny and the surface does not vacuum, it is easier to clean.
Because of the dry climate, the moisture of the furniture is seriously lost and the texture becomes loose.
When a liquid containing oil, alkali or acid erodes the surface of the furniture, a soft rag can be used.1ratio20Soap or1ratio10Wipe the shampoo thoroughly and wipe it. It is not advisable to use a chemical brightener to avoid damage to the paint film.
If the home or office has furniture made of high-grade wood such as mahogany, oak and teak, then the delicate carving decoration is definitely indispensable.
These places are also very easy to accumulate dust in these places. If they are not cleaned frequently, they will speed up the aging of wooden furniture.
But be careful when cleaning, try not to use hard cleaning tools, otherwise it is easy to scratch the furniture.
