To be able to take care of your wood furniture and take care of those scratches, water rings and a lot more, here are a few suggestions.
Possessing a stylish piece of wood furniture is really something that is indeed a prized possession all though the ages, but if you want to keep your piece of furniture looking its very best; it will take quite a bit of work. That “bit of work” is in fact the key to it all. There may be one of those circumstances that the more you will care for your endeared furniture, the more harm comes its way as you are trying to care for it.
You have to keep all of those commercial wood cleaners far, far away from your priceless pieces, more than ever if they are containing a silicon base, which will create its own finish that will be as close to impossible for you to remove. As a replacement for the commercial wood cleaners, how about using a damp dust cloth instead for your cleaning schedules? If a much deeper cleansing is required, then go for the odorless mineral spirits on the oiled wood, and also mineral spirits, or even plain old-fashioned water and soap for the wood that has been varnished. After that, proceed with waxing or polishing to restore the shine and luster.
The waxing and polishing of the wood furniture can be done by using any paste wax or any polish and giving a bit more of effort in polishing and waxing the finish. You have to make certain that you will follow the directions that were stated on the back of the product which you have chosen as you see they may sometimes vary.
But then again, it will need a bit more of you effort for the polishing and the waxing, this means that this is not simply a task that you ought to be regularly undertaking. There will be some differences on the recommended timeline, but no one will recommend applying the wax more than maybe once a year and it may be that you can stretch that out to two to four years.
Wood is not rock-hard, and eventually every single one of your treasured pieces will probably have to suffer some damage within its lifetime, but by chance there will be some tricks you can do to minimize the damage. It does not matter what kind of damage has happened, when you will repair your wood furniture, treat only the supposed area to be repaired.
