Wood Furniture Care

Keep your wood furniture looking like new with these tips:

  • To maintain the quality of your wood furniture, do not expose it to direct sunlight or extreme temperatures.
  • Dust often using a soft, clean, lint-free cloth that has been only slightly dampened. Attend to spills immediately with a damp cloth.
  • Use table runners, place mats, table pads, and coasters to reduce the chances of marking or damaging the wood. Always use coasters under both hot and cold liquids.
  • Never write on a bare wood surface. It may leave impressions on the wood.
  • Avoid the use of dyes, paints, inks, bleach, nail polish, and similar products on and around your wood furniture.
  • Waxing is not recommended.
  • Surfaces can be cleaned with a mild non-alkaline soap and water. Use the suds on a damp sponge or cloth, but be sure to test the solution on an inconspicuous section to make sure it doesn't damage the finish. Dry immediately with a soft cloth and buff lightly, following the grain.
  • Always remember to lift up and move your furniture instead of pushing, pulling, or dragging it, which can damage not only your furniture, but also your flooring.
