A house is not a home when it feels old and dirty. It ruins your piece of mind! The best thing you can do to prevent this from happening is to maintain the quality of your furniture. You probably have wood furniture in you home, but do you know how to take care of it? Here are some tips on how you can keep your furniture feeling fresh and clean!
使用木蠟油 | Apply a Wax or Oil Finish
When wood furniture is crafted, a wax sealant is applied to protect the wood from exterior damage. This sealant also brings out the texture and natural grain of the wood. The bad news is that this sealant fades after a few years. In order to maintain the quality of your wood furniture, you should re-apply either a wax or oil coating every 1-2 years. Make sure you apply this coating sparingly and work along the wood grain.
清潔時使用柔軟乾布 | Use Soft, Dry Cloth to Clean
The best way to clean wood furniture is to use a soft, dry cloth. A soft cloth will be more gentle on the wood. A wet cloth may be used when needed but try to avoid this as much as possible as this may damage the wood.
刮花時使用補色筆 | Color in Scratches With a Pen
Accidental scratches are unavoidable. Fortunately this is an easy fix! First, find a pen that matches or is similar to the color of your furniture. Then color in the scratches along the grain. For more severe damage, you can apply a paste filler to fill the whole. Once the paste is dry, use sandpaper to smooth out the service. Finish the job once the paste has fully dried and color in the filler.

注意存放環境 | Adjust the Environment
When wood furniture is exposed to direct sunlight, the color will fade and may become damaged. You should also avoid placing wood furniture near cold air as this will dry out the wood and cause cracking.
Wood furniture should be covered with a soft fabric to avoid excessive damage caused from hard object. Take a dining table for example, covering the table with a tablecloth can protect it from extreme temperatures that is harmful to the wood. You could also place a cushion a wooden chair to avoid deformation after long term use.
