With proper care, the solid hardwood furniture you purchase from Whitacre’s will provide years of service and enjoyment.
The Hardwood Manufactures Association has some tips on caring for your furniture.
• Maintain a humidity controlled environment.
Your home should be kept in the 45-55% humidity range to prevent warping and cracking.
• Avoid direct sunlight.
Try to keep furniture out of direct continued sunlight and away from heat sources
such as furnace ducts, radiators and fireplaces.
• Protect your surface.
Use coasters and trivets with non-scratching bottoms underneath glasses and serving dishes placed on tables and stands.
Avoid the use of nail polish remover, alcohol, or other solvents near furniture. Use a soft damp cloth to remove dust.
If needed, periodically clean furniture with a mild, non-alkaline soap and water using a soft cloth. Dry immediately with a soft cloth.
