There are two types of wooden dining tables. Traditional hardwood dining tables generally have no lacquer on the surface, just hot wax. Now the surfaces of newly produced hardwood or other solid wood dining tables are protected by large lacquer or varnish. There are differences in the maintenance methods of solid wood dining tables with different treatments.
The solid wood contains water. When the air humidity is too low, the hardwood dining table will shrink, and when the air humidity is too high, it will expand. Generally,
the solid wood dining table has a rising and shrinking layer during production, but you should pay attention to it when using it. Do not place it in a place that is too humid or too dry, such as near a stove with high temperature and high heat, or a place where the basement is too humid to avoid it. Moldy or dry cracking, etc.
If it is a bungalow or a low-lying house, the legs of the furniture must be properly raised when the floor is wet, otherwise the legs are easily corroded by moisture.
When transporting or moving the wooden dining table, it should be handled with care and should not be pulled hard, so as not to damage the tenon and tenon structure. Tables and chairs cannot be lifted, they are easy to fall off. They should be lifted from both sides of the table to reduce weight and avoid movement of cabinet doors.
Avoid placing heavy objects on the surface of the wooden dining table for a long time, which will deform the wooden dining table.
It is not advisable to spread airtight materials such as plastic cloth on the wooden table top.
If the floor is uneven in the room, the wooden dining table will be deformed for a long time. The way to avoid this is to use small wooden pieces to level it.
Never use wet rags or rough rags to wipe wooden dining tables, especially old wooden dining tables. Use a clean and soft cotton cloth, add a little wooden table wax or walnut oil after a period of time, and gently rub back and forth along the wood grain.
The surface of the wooden dining table should avoid rubbing with hard objects to avoid damaging the lacquer surface and the texture of the wood surface. For example, be careful when placing decorative items such as porcelain and bronze, preferably with a soft cloth.
Avoid placing the wooden dining table in front of large south-facing glass windows. Long-term direct sunlight will cause the wooden dining table to become too dry and fade.
Hot water cups, etc. cannot be placed directly on the surface of the wooden dining table, as it will leave traces that are not easy to remove. Colored liquids, such as ink, should never be spilled on the desktop.
