When you buy a wood furniture piece from Swiss Valley Furniture, you’re not just purchasing something for yourself—you’re buying something that can become a treasured family heirloom. Of course, for your wood furniture to stand the test of time, you need to provide an appropriate level of care and maintenance. So how do you care for your Swiss Valley Furniture heirlooms?
Start by making sure your home environment is conducive to the preservation of wood furniture. Our handmade products should be kept away from direct sunlight, wood stoves, and hot air vents. Close proximity to these heat sources can dry and split the wood. Because of this, it is also recommended that you avoid placing hot items on these wooden surfaces. Keeping your home’s humidity between 35% and 45% is another essential element of maintaining your wood furniture.
Maintaining an environment that is wood furniture-friendly is half the battle, though occasional cleaning is also a must. In most situations, wiping down wood furniture with a soft damp cloth and then passing over the surface a dry cloth will be enough to keep things clean. Clean up any spills as quickly as possible, and avoid using cleaners that contain ammonia, bleach, or wax, as they could damage the wood.
By following these simple guidelines, you’ll be able to preserve the quality of your wood furniture pieces, ensuring that your family will enjoy them for generations to come
