In home decoration, furniture is a long-lasting consumable. The longer you use it, the worse the quality will be. But this does not mean that it will be eliminated and replaced soon. The key is to know how to maintain. If you don't take good care of it, its service life will disappoint you. On the contrary, if you can take good care of it, it can extend the service life of your furniture for several years or even longer.
Especially when you choose the rattan furniture with elegant shape, fashionable style and unique style from the furniture market, you must hope it will be more durable and stay with you as long as possible. Although furniture woven with rattan is more durable than ordinary furniture, it also needs cleaning and maintenance. As long as you follow these tips, you can certainly make it last longer at its best.
One of the characteristics of natural rattan is that they are easy to crack in an excessively dry environment. So if you choose the outdoor natural rattan sofa, don't forget to oil it in hot and dry weather. Treatment with tung oil or boiled linseed oil can improve the humidity level of rattan and prevent fiber cracking. After oiling the rattan, let it fully absorb, wipe off the excess oil and put it aside to dry. This will provide a new protective coating for the sofa. This step can add more durability to your rattan sofa.
No matter what kind of furniture it is, it should be cleaned regularly, and furniture woven with rattan is no exception. Cleaning up dust and stains on time is a factor to prolong its service life. If you don't deal with the stain in time, the longer it stays, the more likely it is to fall off. Remember not to use a scrub pad as it may change color or damage the structure of the rattan. Just clean it with a wet cloth or light salt water. For the dust part, the dust left in the furniture can be brushed out or sucked out by using suction nozzles or brush accessories.
In addition, if you put the rattan garden corner sofa outdoors, you also need to consider insect pests. Mix 1 part of vinegar and 3 parts of water in a spray bottle, then add a little mild detergent. Shake everything and spray it on your sofa. Or use camphor pills to ward off vermin.
The spread of mold will greatly affect the life of furniture. So when you see mold on your rattan outdoor furniture, be sure to deal with it in time. Especially in the wet summer, we must pay special attention to this problem, because this time will provide a good living space for mold. After the mold is found, use a strong bleach solution to clean the affected area. At the same time, the furniture must be dried outside immediately, but please don't let it be under the blazing sun for quite a long time.
When using rattan seats and sofas, it is recommended that you use seat cushions. Using cushions on chairs not only increases some of the comfort, but also effectively prevents some sharp objects from falling and scratching your furniture. More importantly, in addition to being very strong and durable, the cane is also very flexible. Using it for a long time will make the rattan chair sag. If you use a seat cushion, you can distribute the weight of the seat more evenly. Seat cushions can not only increase our comfort, but also protect rattan style furniture from sagging and wear. So take out the seat cushion quickly.
Although the rattan has strong weather resistance, the rain, sun, snow and cold temperature will make it more brittle. If no protective measures are taken for a long time, it will increase the possibility of cracking and breaking. By protecting it from extreme weather, you can greatly extend the useful life of furniture woven with rattan. Anything that provides some degree of protection is better than leaving it completely exposed. Covers specially designed to protect furniture is a good choice, not only to protect against snow and sun, but also to reduce the growth of mold and dust.
When moving rattan garden furniture, be careful not to move it by dragging. Otherwise, in the process of dragging, the rattan fibers in the legs of the tables and chairs will be damaged and split. They should be lifted off the ground correctly, so as to more effectively protect the feet of your rattan furniture from injury. In addition, you can also use felt mats or rubber plugs to secure their legs to provide more comprehensive protection for the bottom of the furniture.
No matter what kind of furniture, we must learn to follow and respect their regular pattern and feature. When you master and pay attention to these tips, there is no reason not to let your rattan furniture accompanies you longer.
