Furniture Care Guide

Furniture Care Guide

At Aldea Design, we believe that proper care and maintenance are essential for preserving the beauty and longevity of your furniture. Follow these simple guidelines to keep your furniture looking its best for years to come:

1. Regular Cleaning:

  • Dust your furniture regularly with a soft, lint-free cloth to remove surface dirt and debris.
  • For wooden furniture, use a slightly damp cloth to wipe away dust and grime. Avoid using excess water, as it can damage the wood.
  • Upholstered furniture should be vacuumed regularly to remove dust and crumbs from the fabric.

2. Avoid Direct Sunlight:

  • Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause fading and discoloration of your furniture, especially for upholstered pieces and wood finishes.
  • Position your furniture away from windows or use curtains and blinds to block out harsh sunlight.

3. Use Coasters and Mats:

  • Use coasters, placemats, and tablecloths to protect surfaces from spills, heat, and scratches.
  • Avoid placing hot items directly on wood surfaces, as this can cause damage to the finish.

4. Rotate Cushions and Pillows:

  • Rotate and flip cushions and pillows regularly to ensure even wear and maintain their shape.
  • Fluff and reshape cushions to prevent sagging and keep them looking plump and comfortable.

5. Handle with Care:

  • Lift and move furniture carefully to avoid dragging it across the floor, which can scratch and damage wood and other surfaces.
  • Use furniture sliders or felt pads under the legs of heavy furniture to protect floors from scratches and dents.

6. Clean Spills Promptly:

  • Clean up spills immediately to prevent staining and damage to the finish.
  • Blot spills with a clean, dry cloth to absorb excess liquid. Avoid rubbing, as this can spread the stain.

7. Use Furniture Polish Sparingly:

  • For wood furniture, use a high-quality furniture polish or wax occasionally to restore luster and protect the finish.
  • Apply polish sparingly with a soft cloth, following the grain of the wood. Buff to a shine with a clean, dry cloth.

8. Follow Manufacturer’s Instructions:

  • Follow any specific care instructions provided by the manufacturer for your furniture.
  • Different materials and finishes may require different cleaning and maintenance methods, so it’s important to refer to the manufacturer’s guidelines.

9. Professional Cleaning and Maintenance:

  • For deep cleaning and maintenance, consider hiring professional furniture cleaners or refinishers.
  • They have the expertise and specialized equipment to clean and restore your furniture to its original beauty.

10. Store Properly During Off Seasons:

  • If you have outdoor furniture, store it indoors or cover it properly during the off-season to protect it from the elements and extend its lifespan.

By following these simple care tips, you can ensure that your furniture remains beautiful, comfortable, and functional for years to come. If you have any questions or need further assistance, don’t hesitate to contact our customer service team. Thank you for choosing Aldea Design!
