20 Wood Furniture Care Tips and Tricks (to help you take care of your Eustis Chair products):
1. Dust regularly
Dust can scratch the surface of your wood furniture if not removed regularly. Use a soft, clean cloth to gently remove dust and debris.
2. Clean spills immediately
Wipe up any spills as soon as they occur to prevent staining. Use a damp cloth and dry thoroughly.
3. Avoid sun and heat exposure
Direct sunlight and heat can cause your wood furniture to fade, crack, or warp. Place it away from windows and heat sources.
4. Use coasters and placemats
To prevent scratches and water rings, use coasters and placemats when placing drinks or other items on the surface.
5. Keep furniture out of humidity
Humidity can cause wood to warp or crack. Keep furniture in a room with consistent humidity levels and away from moisture sources.
6. Avoid Moisture
Cleaning with too much moisture can cause swelling and warping. Use a damp cloth and dry thoroughly after cleaning.
7. Clean with mild soap and water
Use a mild soap and water solution for general cleaning. Avoid harsh chemicals like ammonia or bleach.
8. Condition the wood
Natural oils in wood can evaporate over time, leaving the surface dry and brittle. Use a wood conditioner to nourish and protect it.
9. Use furniture polish
Furniture polish protects your wood furniture from scratches, dust, and other environmental factors. Use a high-quality polish and follow manufacturer instructions.
10. Avoid heavy objects
Placing heavy objects on wood furniture can cause scratches and other damage. Use trivets or protective items instead.
11. Move furniture carefully
When moving furniture, lift it instead of dragging it to prevent scratches and other damage. When stacking chairs, use a Eustis Chair transporter.
12. Avoid abrasive cleaners
Abrasive cleaners can scratch the surface of wood furniture. Avoid using steel wool, sandpaper, or other abrasive materials.
13. Store furniture properly
Protect your furniture from dust, moisture, and other environmental factors when storing it. Use clean, dry cloth covers and furniture covers for extra protection.
14. Avoid direct carpet placement
Placing furniture directly on the carpet can cause moisture buildup and warping. Use furniture coasters or place a protective mat between the carpet and furniture.
15. Repair nicks and scratches promptly
Repair nicks and scratches promptly to prevent further damage. You can sand the piece lightly and touch up with matching stain or paint or call a reputable local furniture repair shop. We can help you find one if needed.
16. Use felt pads on chair legs
