In choosing furniture for home, wood is one of the materials that are still a favorite choice of many people. However, caring for organic materials such as wood is certainly not as easy as taking care of furniture from plastic materials. If not handled properly, then the risk of exposure to fungus, cracks, to eat termites can occur in your wood furniture. But no need to worry because we have some tips that can be tried alone at home.
1. Place in Dry or Normal Temperature
Continuous exposure to hot temperatures can make the wood dry and shrink, causing cracks in the wood. Keep wooden furniture away from heat-emitting appliances or places exposed to direct sunlight, especially if you live in areas with high temperatures. Not only that, moist air can also provoke the breeding of fungi or insects that are harmful to wood.
2. Move Rightly and Carefully
The habit of moving a minimalist table or chair by dragging or pulling the backrest can scratch and scrape wood as it rubs against the floor. Pulling one of his legs is also at risk of damaging the seat connection. The correct way to move wood furniture is to lift it in the cross section or the holder with care.
