Caring for wood is easy and will extend the life of the item and help retain its value.
Here are some tips on how to do that:
Do not use silicon-based cleaners or sprays on your beloved wood. It makes future maintenance difficult as the silicon rejects other treatments.
Modern varnishes can be cleaned with a mild detergent on a soft, damp cloth. Gently rub, wipe and dry. If necessary, use a good quality furniture oil SPARINGLY to revive dry or tired-looking wooden surfaces.
The bottom and back of cabinets, dressers, sideboards, etc. are usually the best place to check for the tell-tale signs of beetle borer. Treat any infestation as soon as possible.
Do not use linseed oil on garden furniture or exterior door and window surfaces. The sun will heat the oil and destroy the coating.
Regular painting (or double-varnishing) the top and bottom of exterior doors and shutters will add years to their lifetime.
Do not use glazing putty on bare wood, rather apply a coat of sealer before glazing.
