Care of Solid Wood Tables

If cared for properly your solid hardwood table can give you a lifetime of service and beauty.  Here are several care tips that will enhance your investment.

PLACE YOUR TABLE away from radiators, fireplaces and heating ducts

POSITION YOUR TABLE out of direct sunlight or adjust blinds to avoid hour after hour of direct sunlight

CONTROL HUMIDITY to 40% to 45%.  In winter use a humidifier, in summer use a dehumidifier or air conditioner.

USE COASTERS with non-scratching bottoms

USE PADDING under all sharp, hot or cold objects

STORE LEAVES in close proximity to table or in the same humidity.  Avoid storing leaves in damp basements where leaves may swell.

AVOID using nail polish remover, alcohol and other solvents near or on the table.
