For Painted Furniture:
Wipe or dust off your furniture weekly with a damp cloth. However, make sure to not leave water spots because if it dries up, it can give permanent marks.
If the furniture is damaged, you can glue joints together, sand down mars, or paint it with the same color entirely. Add finishing oil to give it a better look and prolonged protection.
For antiques, it requires the most care – whatever the type of oil that is used on the wood, use the same type to clean it up ( eg. oil, wax ). And, you need to use a lint-free cloth in wiping. Also, you need to follow the direction of the grain of the wood when wiping, to avoid any smudges or mars.
Leather often dries up and cracks, so, you need to put it away from the sun as much as possible and clean it with a damp sponge regularly.
You can also use 1/4 cup white vinegar with 1/2 cup water solution in washing the leather, and dry it with a cloth afterward if it already has excessive soil.
For Upholstered furniture:
You should keep them out of direct sunlight so that it won’t fade. Vacuum it regularly and flip the cushions and pillows as well.
And if you spill any liquids on it, wipe it off immediately to avoid leaving marks on the furniture.
If you know how you take good care of all your furniture, you will be able to prolong its lifespan and maximize its use.
