How to Care for Your Plywood Furniture
Plywood furniture not only offers stunning aesthetics but also durability if maintained with appropriate care. Here are a few tips to maintain it in mint condition.
1. Dusting is a rule of thumb to keep the surfaces of plywood clean. Dusting plywood surfaces once a week is usually sufficient for most environments. For spaces close to sandy areas or traffic, it may need to be done more often.
2. Direct and continuous exposure to sunlight can leave your furniture devoid of its allure. To avoid this, it is best to place furniture where sunlight does not reach it directly or least lessen the intensity of the light that falls on it continuously.
3. There exists a good chance of oil, food particles, etc., entering joints and other hard-to-access parts of, say, intricately carved wooden furniture, including plywood furniture. This causes the finish to deteriorate and discoloration to set in. Extend the life of your furniture by using a brush to frequently clean these spills and stains.
4. Moisture and humidity can cause harm to your wooden furniture. To avoid this effect, ensure that your furniture is placed in a well-ventilated area, or that it is in such an area for a few hours each day.
5. Use inconspicuous accessories such as edge guards to protect your furniture from high traffic which invariably causes bumps and dents in it. A table, which sees regular contact with an accompanying chair due to use by visitors, for instance, is an ideal candidate for such treatment.
6. Stains are an inevitable reality of home and office environments. To prevent these from settling deep into your furniture, ensure that they are cleaned within a few minutes of the spillage at worst.
7. Clean wood only using a specialized cleaning solution. It is prudent also to test these solutions on a small unexposed spot on the wood before applying it on its entire surface.
8. On wooden furniture, always use cleaning pads that are not abrasive. For instance, opt for soft cotton or sponge over cleaning pads with copper bristles.
In conclusion, it is safe to say that all it takes to enjoy the full value of the money invested in your plywood is a little awareness and prudence.
