The rainy season ain’t for everybody. For example, your furniture. If you have wooden furniture at home, you’d know it’s not easy to maintain them. And more so, during the monsoon. Moisture severely affects wood, and can even attract termites and other pests! Read on for easy and effective tips to keep your furniture rain-free! Wedding Affair brings to you some protective measures you can take to protect your wooden furniture.
Keep Moisture Away
Furniture can absorb moisture from the walls, so keep your sofas, cupboards and beds a couple of inches away from the wall. Let the sunlight in when it’s not raining to reduce the humidity in the room. This is the most effective technique you can adopt.
Lacquer It Up
Ever wondered why it’s difficult to close wooden doors during the monsoon? It’s because of moisture absorption. You can prevent this by oiling, waxing or varnishing the furniture to prevent it from swelling. Your furniture will definitely thank you for this!
Dust If You Must
Use a dry cloth instead of a damp one to clean wooden furniture. The dust has a tendency to stick to wood and absorb moisture, so it should not be left uncleaned during the rainy season.
De-Humidify If Needed
Humidifiers help keep the dampness of monsoon in control. Controlling the humidity levels in your home would increase the furniture’s longevity. This completely depends on the need though.
Use camphor or naphthalene balls to protect your clothes and cupboards from moisture, termites and other pests. Neem leaves and cloves are a great natural alternative too! These will surely save your furniture from damage from the monsoon this year.
