What should we do if the furniture is wet and moldy?
Solid wood furniture is more susceptible to moisture, and the wood is prone to swelling and mildew when wet. Therefore, in the rainy season, the solid wood furniture should be placed about 1 cm away from the wall to avoid excessive moisture in the wet season. In addition, the furniture should be waxed regularly, every 6-12 months, with a special furniture paste wax for the furniture a layer of wax. Before waxing, the old wax is wiped off with a milder non-alkaline soapy water.
If you encounter mildew in solid wood furniture, you can use a clean soft cloth to remove neutral detergent or furniture-specific cleaner. Then gently apply a layer of furniture wax or furniture-specific essential oil to the moldy part, and put a piece of soap or a gauze bag filled with dried tea leaves in the musty area to help eliminate the musty smell.
In the wet spring and thunderstorms, during daily cleaning, you can use a clean soft cloth to clean the furniture with a special cleaning agent to remove dirt. This kind of cleaning agent can form a protective film on the surface of solid wood furniture, to a certain extent. Prevent moisture from penetrating into the interior of the wooden furniture. In the dry seasons such as autumn and winter, use a slightly damp soft cloth to gently wipe along the texture of the wood to maintain the moisture content of the solid wood furniture to prevent cracking. Be careful not to wipe with a dry cloth to avoid rubbing flowers.
Wood-based panel furniture is afraid of "gap"
Wood-based panels are made of wood or other non-wood plants, which are separated into various unit materials by certain mechanical processing, and then coated or molded with or without adhesive and other additives. Various scraps are easy to be impregnated, and thus can be subjected to various functional treatments such as flame retardancy, corrosion resistance, shrinkage resistance, abrasion resistance and the like. Wood-based panel furniture with poor edge sealing or poor surface material quality can easily absorb moisture in the air, which causes the furniture panel to expand and damage. Experts suggest that you should pay attention to waterproof when using wood-based panel furniture, especially for consumers living on the first floor. Waterproof cushions can be installed under the furniture. For furniture that is close to the exterior wall or bathroom wall, it is best to leave a ventilation distance.
