    Cleaning & Care

    Prep

    Be cautious when moving furniture to prevent scratching the floor or the furniture itself. It's best to lift rather than drag. If dragging is unavoidable, place a soft blanket or towel underneath to prevent scratches. Always lift furniture from the bottom with both hands and move slowly to avoid accidents. If an item is too heavy, seek help instead of risking injury or damage. Different wood types require tailored maintenance due to variations in grain, color, and properties. Classifying woods into hardwoods and softwoods can guide care routines.

    Dust

    Regular dusting is essential for wooden furniture maintenance. It's recommended to dust at least weekly, but more frequent dusting may be necessary in dusty environments or homes with pets. Opt for a microfiber or soft, lint-free cloth for effective dusting. Gently wipe along the wood grain to avoid scratches. For stubborn dirt, a slightly dampened cloth can be used, but steer clear of excessive moisture to safeguard the wood. Larger items can be dusted with a vacuum equipped with a soft brush attachment. Remember to vacuum in the direction of the wood grain to prevent surface scratches.

    Hard Woods

    Hardwoods like Oak, Cherry, and Mahogany have tight grains that resist scratches. They need gentle cleaning with minimal water or specialized cleaners, along with occasional oiling or waxing for added shine.
    Avoid harsh chemicals and abrasive cleaners when cleaning wood furniture, as they can cause damage. Opt for natural cleaners like mild soap or a white vinegar solution. For a DIY cleaner, mix 1 cup of water with 1/4 cup of white vinegar.

    Soft Woods

    Softwoods such as Pine, Cedar, and Spruce have open grains and are more prone to damage. Regular dusting and immediate spill cleanup are essential to prevent quick absorption stains.
