Due to the particularity of its materials and use properties, wooden handicrafts are generally less cracked and not afraid of water. However, this does not mean that you can spray water on wooden crafts when cleaning wooden crafts. You should use wet rags as much as possible. Gently wipe as well!

Generally speaking, because the value of solid wood furniture is more expensive, it is more complicated to maintain solid wood furniture than to maintain ordinary materials. For wooden crafts, the specific maintenance methods have the following six points:

1. Pay attention to the maintenance of the surface of wooden handicrafts. Now the surface of ordinary furniture will be painted as a protective film. Therefore, to protect wooden crafts, it is the primary task to protect this layer of paint. Wipe gently with a soft cotton cloth every day, clean it with a damp cloth for a while, and finally apply a thin layer of light wax.

2. Avoid direct sunlight, this maintenance method is not used for wooden crafts, it is used for all furniture. Because long-term sunshine is easy to cause the furniture moisture to be dried and cracked, remember to pay attention to this detail when placing or installing furniture.

3. To avoid the use of chemical solvents to remove stains, wooden crafts due to its special use properties, easy to produce stains. If the surface of the wooden handicraft is stained, do not rub it hard, or for convenience, directly pour the chemical supplies, and wipe it off. But this not only scratched the light wax but also damaged the furniture.

4. To avoid the environment is humid, summer indoors are prone to flood, especially in the kitchen. At this time we can use thin glue to separate the wooden crafts from the ground.

The red wooden boards of wooden crafts are generally brittle, such as the table top and the chair. Always pay attention to prevent bumps and cracks. If you find that there is dislocation at the force when using or moving, be sure to re-gluing and sealing before use.

In order to protect the paint film from being scratched and to display the wood texture, a panel of wood crafts is generally placed on the table top, and the glass plate is separated by a small suction pad between the wooden table tops. It is not recommended to use transparent polyethylene crystal plates.

Wooden handicrafts are generally used for a long time, so it is necessary to protect the surface coating of furniture frequently. It is best to wipe it once with a little wax every three months, not only to increase the beauty of the furniture, but also to protect the wood.
