The product is not easy to change color after processing, and is anti-mold, insect-proof and anti-corrosion, so it is the first choice for most people.

For wooden furniture maintenance, you should pay attention to:

1. The disadvantage of wooden furniture is that over time, the furniture will be affected by the environmental climate. High temperatures will make the furniture easy to crack, so it is best to use this type of furniture in a dry and ventilated environment to avoid direct sunlight.

2.The humid climate will cause the furniture to become infested with insects, mold, and bacteria. It needs to be cleaned from time to time, so proper care is necessary. When cleaning, you can wipe it clean with clean water or salt water. After it is air-dried, apply a layer of varnish appropriately for protection.

3.During daily use, try not to keep wooden furniture in a state of moisture, especially when it rains, it must be put away. When wiping wooden furniture, it is best to wring out the water in the rag so that the wooden furniture dries faster.

4.If you are going to be out for a long time and will not use it for a long time, it is best to cover the wooden furniture with a furniture cover, so that the service life of the wooden furniture will be long.
