Clean Wooden Furniture

Do make sure that you are actually acquainting yourself with the tips to maintain wooden furniture sets without fail. Hope this particular primer will be of help – definite help

Before we start, we will like to clarify that it doesn’t really cost you a fortune to maintain wooden furniture. Just a few simple cleaning measures will be of help. However, do ensure that you’re adopting a regular maintenance regime without fail.

Collect your cleaning supplies in one place. A vacuum cleaner, a bucket, capable of holding a gallon of water, rags and a soft cloth and vinegar (white) are just a few of the items that you would need for cleaning purposes. If you are interested in polishing the wooden piece as well you can use your vegetable or olive oil.

Do make sure that you are only making use of clothes that have not been used for cleaning other materials before.

Make sure you are emptying some area for wood furniture cleaning. You can imagine the kind of space required for cleaning wooden beds or sofa sets. So, do act accordingly.

The vacuum will be needed to free the furniture set of the dust. Use the cleaner and the brush attached to it to remove the dust from the surfaces and cracks – very gently. The attachment, notably, should not really be noted for upholstery. This might as well lead to scratches. If you are cleaning a sofa set, then you would definitely like to remove the cushions before embarking on your task. Doing this will free up space and make it easier for you to carry out your job in an efficient and hassle-free fashion.

After getting rid of the dust, you can use a slightly moist fresh piece of cloth to clean the surfaces. Water and vinegar can be used for cleaning as well. Use a mix of half cup of vinegar in half a gallon of water for medium-sized surfaces. You can actually go on to double up that amount for larger surfaces. But please make sure you are not using too much of water on wood. It can rub away the polish and render your wood weak.

This is simply a fold-down design. You have a thick cushion draped to the frame. The back usually folds down which creates a flat surface along with seat cushion.

Flat Pack Furniture

Even though there are instructions included in the box at times they are not exactly clear as to what gets screwed into what and what screw to use. It can be very frustrating. There are furniture assembly services you can hire to put your new furniture together. If you decide that you want to do the furniture assembly yourself, here is some information that will help to make the job a little easier.

• First make sure that you have a clear area where you can unpack the pieces and where you can work. You do not want to try to work in the same area where the parts are because something could get broken or the wrong parts could be put together. Make sure that you have a small container to put the screws and hardware in so they do not get lost. Next open the box, and lay all the parts out. Check against the sheet to make sure that you have all the pieces.
• Read the instructions completely instead of reading and then doing what was said to be done in that step. This does take a little more time but it will help you know exactly what you are doing.
• Look at the pictures of the screws and hardware and match what you have against the pictures so you know what goes in what because you do not want to try to force the wrong screw into the wrong hole because you could damage the item.
• Use the right tools, which is usually just a screwdriver
• Do not tighten all the screws until you have it all together and then tighten them as tight as they will go.
