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.
Try to keep furniture out of direct continued sunlight and away from heat sources such as furnace ducts, radiators and fireplaces.
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.
