Home furniture is more than just fitting your house with modern and stylish furnishings. It’s there for you, day and night regardless of whether it’s a couch that welcomes you to rest or a shelve that holds your recollections, furniture can help make your everyday life more comfortable therefore you should have to take good care of it. That is the reason we’re here to discuss different types of furniture care products to take good care of your furniture. There are three basic and most common types of furniture care products:
- Silicone cleaners.
Silicone Based Cleaners and Waxes
We don’t suggest silicone cleaners and waxes for taking care of your furniture. While silicone cleaners make a high level of shine and sparkle but silicone seeps in even the best finishes. Accordingly making a barrier that won’t accept stains or polish. This makes it nearly impossible to refinish or touch-up your furnishing.
Waxes should be avoided because their continuous use may result in a build-up of wax film on the surface of the furniture. This build-up could actually attract dirt, smoke and other pollutants in the air. And may result in smudges and stains.
Also, many waxes contain grit that can permanently damage the texture of furniture surfaces if used improperly.
Polishes, which we recommend, contain three main components i-e;
- Mineral oils.
The detergent helps in cleaning dirt from the furniture. Whereas the emulsifiers give it body to clean and stay longer. The mineral oil is left behind to form a film of oil or barrier to prevent dirt and moisture that could harm the finishing of furniture. The polishes don’t contain any grit to harm the finish, no wax to build up and no silicone to raise the sheen and act as a barrier for touch-up and refinishing.
These are the main types of furniture care products and they all have their merits and demerits.
