Solid wood furniture: ventilate and dry in time
Symptoms of dampness: Excessive wet weather will cause small water droplets on the surface of solid wood furniture, and the surface paint will be locally discolored, and mildew spots will grow when the dampness is severe. Due to the increased moisture content of wood, local volume expansion results in furniture deformation. And the wood connection part of the furniture will cause cracking due to the excessive change of moisture content.
Moisture-proof maintenance: In the case of solid wood furniture without condensation or mildew, you can put a moisture-proof bag such as a desiccant inside the furniture for moisture absorption treatment. After wiping the outside with a dry towel, wipe a layer of walnut oil to dampen it. In addition, it is necessary to pay attention to daily maintenance. Solid wood furniture should be maintained with special cleaners. You can use protective wax or special cleaner to evenly coat the furniture surface, and then gently wipe it to maintain its gloss and moisture resistance.
Moisture treatment: When the solid wood furniture is wet, if it is not serious, it should be ventilated and dried in time; if condensation or mold spots appear, wipe the water drops first, remove the mold spots with a mild detergent, and then dehumidify.
Tip: When buying solid wood furniture, pay attention to the painting process on the surface. If the paint process is covered well, it can relieve the moisture of the solid wood furniture.
Panel furniture: keep the seams clean
Moisture symptoms: Panel furniture is generally edge-sealed and has a higher moisture resistance than solid wood. However, the joints of panel furniture will expand and deform due to the increase of the moisture content, and in severe cases will cause the surface panel to crack.
Moisture-proof maintenance: Pay attention to keep the joints clean to prevent dust and impurities from absorbing and expanding and causing cracks. In areas such as seams that are prone to absorb water, close measures must be taken.
Moisture treatment: the first floor or basement, the ground is relatively humid, and a moisture-proof pad should be placed under the panel furniture. After getting wet, put moisture-proof bag in time to absorb moisture.
Tips: When purchasing panel furniture, you should choose furniture with no exposed substrate, that is, furniture with better edge banding technology to prevent the substrate from getting wet.
Fabric Furniture: Dust Removal
Symptoms of dampness: In the early stage of fabric furniture, discoloration and discoloration may occur due to long-term dampness, and yellow spots or mildew spots may appear on the surface; furthermore, the dampness of the fabric after loss of elasticity, tensile strength decreases, and the volume of the fabric increases. After the wet period, the fabric will become brittle, the wear resistance will be severely lost, and it will easily wear.
Moisture-proof maintenance: Fabrics are prone to dust, and dust removal should be done to prevent mold from growing in wet weather.
Moisture treatment: For ordinary fabric sofas, if it gets wet, it can be dried with a hair dryer or dryer, but it should be kept at a certain distance from the surface of the cloth. For fabric sofas with relatively fine workmanship, it is best to use a special vacuum cleaner to clean all the dust on the surface.
Tip: In humid weather, gently blow the sofa with a hairdryer to remove the moisture in the sofa. If you do not have the skills to operate it proficiently, or the sofa has a large area of mildew, it is best to ask a professional cloth sofa cleaning team to solve it.
Leather furniture: special protective oil
Symptoms of dampness: Leather furniture is exposed to humid environment for a long time, the surface color of leather goods after chemical treatment is easy to change, and the leather becomes hard; mildew will also appear in the environment with humidity exceeding 90%.
Moisture-proof maintenance: Before the arrival of hot and humid weather, you should first use a soft damp cloth to remove dust, and then wipe the surface with a layer of special protective oil for leather furniture such as mink oil, sheep oil, leather oil, etc., not only can play a moisture-proof role, but also protect the leather Furniture color.
Moisture treatment: If mildew spots appear on the surface of leather furniture, use mildew remover to remove mildew spots, and then apply leather maintenance oil.
Tip: If the area of the mildew appears on the cortex and the cortex begins to harden, it is best to consult a professional for conservation treatment.
Wrought iron furniture: wipe the water with a dry cloth
Symptoms of getting wet: Iron furniture will rust due to the increase of moisture, leading to decay.
Moisture-proof maintenance: This kind of furniture is best wiped with a dry cloth on wet days to absorb excess water.
Moisture treatment: If rust appears on the surface of iron furniture, you can use a dishwashing cloth or toothbrush dipped in rust preventive agent to wipe it off, and then polish it with a dry cloth.
Tips: Do not place iron furniture near wet places such as bathrooms and kitchens. You can place a moisture absorption bag near iron furniture to dehumidify it.
Rattan furniture: do not stress when wet
Symptoms of dampness: Rattan furniture will turn black after being damped for a long time, and will rot severely, and its toughness and firmness will be significantly reduced.
Moisture-proof maintenance: If there is any dirt during use, it is best to scrub it with salt water. This will not only remove the dirt, but also make the rattan soft and flexible, ensuring the water absorption of the rattan.
Moisture treatment: in the case of moisture, do not press, ensure that the shape of the weaving and its gap will not deform, and ensure that it shrinks to the original state after drying.
Tip: Rattan furniture is generally not easy to get wet. After wet weather, rattan furniture will return to its original shape and size.
Wet bag: Activated carbon has a strong adsorption capacity. It can be wrapped in cloth bags or sacks and placed around the room to keep the indoor air dry.
Coffee grounds: It has the dual effects of moisture absorption and deodorization. It is a convenient and easy-to-use small dehumidification bag when put in gauze bags, stockings or cotton socks.
Humidity box: essential for wardrobe dehumidification. The more common absorbent products on the market integrate dehumidification, fragrance, anti-mold, deodorization and other functions into one. The moisture-absorbing box is mostly used for moisture absorption in wardrobes and shoe cabinets, and only needs to be placed in the cabinet when in use.
Plants: Tiger Pi Lan, large-leaf plants can absorb excess water in the space, form a small circulation system in the indoor space, and maintain the indoor air balance. Use plants to dehumidify and avoid choosing tropical plants.
Keep a distance from the ground
Furniture should not come into contact with the ground in a large area. Some spacers can be placed on the four feet of the furniture to keep the furniture at a certain distance from the ground to promote ventilation and ventilation.
When the weather is fine, you can open more windows for ventilation to ensure indoor air circulation. However, it should be noted that when the weather is humid, do not open the windows facing south. The south wind will bring water vapor into the room, which will not only have no effect on dehumidification, but also exacerbate the humidity in the room. It is best not to open the window for ventilation on rainy days.
Use a dehumidifier regularly to adjust the indoor humidity. Generally, the indoor air humidity is about 40% -60%. If a dehumidifier is not installed, you can turn on the air conditioner to control the indoor humidity.
Use drying tools
Moisture-proofing agents, moisture-absorbing boxes, activated carbon and other dry items can be placed in corners, under the bed, etc. to prevent moisture. Do not use too moist non-professional cleaning products to wipe the furniture surface for a long time.
Should not be in the sun
Moisture-proof furniture is not reliable to solve the sun. Direct sunlight or direct sunlight can deform and discolor furniture. In hot and humid weather, warm and humid air currents not only cannot dehumidify, but also make the phenomenon of moisture worse.
