​Expert Tips for Guarding Your Newly Restored Furniture!

1. Keep it out of Direct Sunlight: Direct sunlight can cause significant damage to your furniture over time through fading and bleaching. Keep your items in an area where they don’t receive direct sunlight exposure.

2. Avoid placing hot or wet items directly on the furniture: The use of coasters, mats, and trivets is a simple way to protect your furniture from heat and moisture damage.

3. Regular Dusting: Dust can accumulate and scratch the surface of your furniture. Regular dusting using a soft dry cloth or feather dusters is important.

4. Regular polishing: After dusting, use a good-quality polish to protect your furniture and improve its appearance.

5. Protect from pets: Though we all love our furry friends, their claws or hairs could cause damage. Keep your pets well-groomed and trained to avoid furniture damage.

6. Avoid using harsh chemicals: Many cleaning products contain chemicals that can be harsh on furniture. Always use products specifically made for furniture.

7. Check Humidity Levels: Extremely dry or humid conditions can cause vintage furniture to warp or crack. Aim to keep the humidity level in your home between 40% and 60%.

8. Protect During Moving: Use protective materials like blankets and bubble wrap when moving your furniture.

9. Regular Inspection: Incase of wood furniture, keep an eye out for signs of pests. Regularly check your furniture for any repair needs.

10. Keep the Furniture Off From Exterior Walls: Keeping the furniture off from the exterior walls prevents condensation and helps maintain the right levels of air circulation.

Each piece of restored furniture is unique, and therefore, it's important to understand its specific care requirements to keep it looking great for years to come.
