Wooden Furniture: Essential Tips For Proper Care & Maintenance

Our Wooden Furniture Care Guide preserves the beauty, longevity, and timeless appeal of your wooden furniture pieces. Wood has long been cherished for its natural warmth and elegance, making it a popular choice for everything from tables and chairs to drawer units and sideboards. However, to ensure your wooden furniture remains in impeccable condition for years to come, it's essential to understand the nuances of caring for this gorgeous material.

How To Clean Your Wooden Furniture

Regular cleaning is essential to maintain the gorgeous design of your wooden furniture. Here's a guide for cleaning and caring for your wooden furniture:

Dust your wooden furniture regularly with a soft cloth or a microfibre duster. This will help remove any crumbs or dust, that can wear the surface over time.

Use a soft brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner to gently remove any debris from intricate carvings, crevices, and upholstery on wooden furniture.

To help recover your furniture if it gets badly stained, or otherwise affected, we advise getting professional assistance.

Preventative Measures

Avoid Direct Sunlight - Try to avoid placing wooden furniture in direct sunlight as much as possible as this can eventually harm the wood's colour, making it fade over time.

Wax/Polish your wooden furniture - Treat your wood with wax or polish to restore the wood's natural luster and add a layer of protection to your wooden furniture.

Avoid hot objects on wood - Never put hot objects, like a cup of tea, straight onto a table without using a heat-resistant mat. This is because the heat will extract moisture from the wood, leaving the wood with a permanent ring mark.

How To Remove A Stain 

Make sure to clean up any spillages as soon as possible. Use a blotting action to clean any spills as quickly as you can. To absorb as much of the spilt liquid as you can, use a dry cloth. Avoid using abrasive cleaning products, or scrubbers to clean your wooden furniture if there are extremely stubborn marks as this could harm the surface and damage the finish.
