In this guide, we will discuss the essential steps you need to take in order to Maintain Your Wood Furniture. We'll cover everything from cleaning and polishing to protecting against water damage. Follow these tips and your wood furniture will look beautiful for years to come!
Cleaning and Polishing
The first step in maintaining wood furniture is to clean it regularly. Dust and dirt can build up over time and cause the wood to become scratched and faded. Use a soft cloth to dust your furniture regularly, and be sure to use a damp cloth if any spots are particularly dirty.

You may also want to polish your furniture once or twice a year using a quality wood polish. Howard Products orange oil will help keep your wood from drying out while restoring depth of grain and natural beauty to the wood. It’s easy to use and excellent for polishing, conditioning, and nourishing all wood surfaces.
Protecting Against Water Damage
One of the biggest threats to wood furniture is moisture damage. Wood is susceptible to swelling, warping, and cracking when exposed to water for extended periods of time. To protect your furniture from water damage, you'll need to take some precautions.
Avoid placing your furniture near sources of moisture, such as windows or bathrooms.
If you do have to place your furniture near a water source, be sure to use a protective cover. There are many different types of furniture covers available on the market, so be sure to choose one that is specifically designed for wood furniture.
Another way to protect your furniture from water damage is to regularly apply a coat of Howard Products Feed N Wax.
