Just as glass should be cleaned and cared for it is important to also clean and care for your wood furniture. There are many different types of wood that can be used in the construction of furniture, solids behave much differently than veneers and should be treated much differently, both play important roles in the construction process and all wood pieces sold from Critelli’s and Transitions are of the highest quality.
There are many different species of wood as well as finish and stain options. It is important to protect and care for your wood furniture with materials that will extend its useful life. It is best to use a dry cotton cloth to clean your furniture as some of the products available can leave a residue behind that will damage your furniture over time.
Cleaning and polishing on a regular basis will help to extend the life of the finish of your hard wood furniture. Dust, dirt, and food particles left to build up on the surface of your furniture attracts contaminates that could accelerate the deterioration of the finish by weakening and softening it.
Although it may be easy to repair damages on your wood furniture it is important to avoid damaging your furniture in the first place, simple things like using wood coasters for your drinks, and cleaning up spills as quickly as possible. However we believe that homes are meant to be lived in and spills do happen, just remember to blot the liquid to clean it as opposed to wiping it and potentially making a larger mess. There are many different finish options available.
