Understanding the Impact of Moisture on Your Wood Furniture

The very environment in which you keep your wooden furniture can have a huge impact on its condition. Excess moisture can cause mildew and mold to grown on your wooden furniture, and this can be very difficult and costly to effectively remove. A too dry environment will dry out the wood. Initially, this may simply cause the wood to become pale and dull looking, but dryness will also make wood brittle and at risk of developing cracks. To keep your furniture in great condition, follow these suggestions from the Cincinnati furniture restoration professionals at Furniture Medic by Cinti.

  • High moisture spaces such as bathrooms or the laundry room can create harmful conditions for your wooden furniture.
  • Significant temperature variations in your home can also cause a too dry or too wet environment. Keep the temperature consistent for the best results.
  • In some climates, the moisture levels can be naturally too high or too low. Plug in a dehumidifier or other equipment to manage the moisture levels within your own home.
  • Avoid placing wet objects on wood surfaces. Use a placemat, coaster, or other item to protect against water.
