20 Wood Furniture Care Tips and Tricks

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


You can place felt pads on the legs of furniture to protect floors and prevent scratches.


17. Avoid direct sunlight


Direct sunlight can cause fading and damage to the finish of your wood furniture. Use curtains, blinds, or other window treatments to protect it.


18. Avoid extreme temperature changes


Extreme temperature changes can cause cracking and warping. Keep furniture away from heating and cooling vents.


19. Inspect and treat annually


Inspect your wood furniture annually and treat it as necessary to prevent damage.


20. Professional cleaning and maintenance


Consider professional cleaning and maintenance services to ensure your wood furniture lasts for decades.
