It is also important to check if the agent we want to use for the first time will not cause the piece loose values. We recommend testing it on the part of the furniture which is not visible. Wood, as a natural material, has anti-static characteristics and prevents dust from settling. This is good news for all of you with allergies.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF FURNITURE TO KEEP IT LOOKING NEW?
If decide to invest in something, we want the investment to give us returns for many years. This is also true when it comes to furniture, especially if it is wooden furniture. Taking care of wooden surfaces is important but it is not the only issue. Here the conditions are important: the humidity and air temperature of the room where the piece is located. Wood is a hygroscopic material which means the can absorb and return humidity from its surroundings. The piece absorbs humidity (water) from the air, the wood swells and when the humidity is returned, it shrinks. Variable and adverse conditions can initiate such changes and they are destructive to the structure of the wood. As owners and users of wooden furniture we must ensure that temperature shifts are not significant - for example during intense heating periods. Stable but high temperature is also a detriment. Too intense light shining on the wood can also have a negative effect - that is why the furniture needs to placed correctly. Humidity plays an important role. For furniture this should be kept between 40 and 60%. If the humidity is too low, there is a risk of the wooed to crack as a result of returning the water to the environment (drying of wood). You need to take care of this during winter months when the humidity drops due intensive heating. Putting an air humidifier and controlling room humidity by means of an electronic control over will enable you to avoid potential damages and will improve your mood. Proper humidity is beneficial not only for the wood but also for the people who live there
