Here you should try to keep your favorite furniture away from damp places as an effort to take care of teak wood furniture. For example, this can be done by placing chairs and a dining table far from the sink or a wet kitchen set in the kitchen room.

Don't put furniture against walls


In the placement of furniture layouts, we often encounter furniture layout positions that are often attached directly to the walls of the room. Whereas a position like this is prone to moisture and eventually wood pests and mold will arise. Arrange the layout of the furniture and place it in the middle of the room. This position makes the room more spacious and organized according to the function of the furniture itself. Furniture that is attached to the wall will certainly damage the wall paint and furniture finishing. The friction between the furniture and the wall over time will make the paint & furniture finish peeling off.

The use of furniture according to its function


The most effective way to treat furniture, especially for teak wood, is to use it according to its function and portion. Do not force furniture for indoor use. Indoor & Outdoor Furniture has a different construction system & type of finishing that has been adapted to its function. The use of upholstery material also differs according to its placement. Upholstery fabric for outdoor garden chairs is harder and water-repellent. The opposite also applies to concept furniture in the room.

Immediately Open Furniture Packaging


If you have just bought furniture, immediately open the packaging. Too long wooden furniture in the packing can also damage and cause the wood to be in a damp position. Remember that wood has UNPRREDICTIBLE natural properties.

Teak Chair & Sofa Care


Use Stoper / Furniture Leg Rest


Furniture is generally not equipped with a stopper/rubber retainer on the base, you must provide your own waterproof base. The furniture that we produce we always provide shoes or stoppers made of rubber or semi-plastic. Its function is very important as a barrier from the floor so that the furniture is not damp. Also keep the furniture more stable and not easy to shake even though the floor is bumpy.

Use Sofa Carpet Mat


For sofas or guest chairs, you can use carpets or mats so as not to damage the floors and furniture due to friction. In addition to furniture maintenance, carpets also serve to add to the aesthetic value of the interior.

Treatment For Dining Table & Guest Table


Use a Dining Tablecloth


So that the appearance of the furniture, especially the dining table and guest table, is always beautiful and well-maintained, always use a tablecloth. This will be very effective in preventing & protecting the finishing layer of furniture. A dining table that is not protected by a cloth cloth will quickly be damaged, dull and easily scratched. This tablecloth also serves to prevent circles of water marks from hot or cold glass.

Teak Wardrobe Maintenance & Storage

The function of this camphor or camphor is to protect clothes and interior cabinets from pests or wood insects. Even if the wood has been oven-baked and treated, insects from outside or from your own clothes can cause other problems. Always check your Camphor Wardrobe regularly and periodically. You can also put this camphor in a teak tv table drawer which will protect it from wood pests.

2. Maximize With Water Absorbent

This function is different from camphor or camphor, it is more significant to absorb moisture in the closet so that it is always awake and dry which ultimately makes your clothes smell good and not musty. Also protects the wood to make it more durable and not warped.

3. Avoid Use


Cardboard in the Wardrobe This is a very fatal condition if you intend to provide a base on a sheet of paper, cardboard or cardboard. Did you know that this cardboard is a breeding ground for pests quickly and massively. Paper will provide protection against wood pests such as termites and ether ether as well as food ingredients. The habit of putting paper mats under piles of clothes must be removed immediately.
