How to properly care for furniture?


Without exception, every customer wants their newly purchased piece of furniture to last as long as possible. Use has a direct impact on the life of the furniture: the more carefully and gently you use it (providing proper care), the longer it will retain its original appearance. Do not lose sight of the fact that, having saved on the purchase, you risk losing much more in the future: inexpensive furniture can not be flawless quality. Good quality materials are expensive enough, but maintenance costs will be minimal. Buying the next set of furniture will only happen if you want to change the interior of the room, and not because your favorite and functional, but inexpensive cabinet is out of order before its due date. Mr.Doors uses only the highest quality materials and components. Every detail of your future furniture set goes through a multilevel inspection and only then comes into the warehouse, where it will wait for its turn. Numerous certificates confirm that the impeccable quality of our materials meets European standards (ask our designers for details).

Peculiarities of care for the furniture

The process of caring for cabinet furniture will not take you much time and effort, it is enough to follow a few simple rules: read the passport of the product and follow the advice described in the instructions for use and care of furniture, which each manufacturer must specify there. Do not forget to read the "purpose of the furniture".

Recommendations for furniture care

We offer you general useful tips for taking care of furniture:

Remove dust from the surface of the furniture with a dry soft cloth (microfiber, suede, flannel) or special brooms. Do not use scrapers or sponges with a hard nap - they leave small scratches.

Wipe the surface periodically with a special antistatic agent.

Remove dirt with a soapy solution, followed by wiping dry. Alternatively, wet wipes may be used.

Never use aggressive cleaning agents (chlorine, chemicals, solvents). Cleaning with abrasive detergents (soda) is excluded.

Furniture types and care

Rather conventionally, furniture can be divided into the following types, depending on the material from which this or that set is made: chipboard, MDF, natural wood. Each material has its own specifics, which should be taken into account both at the stage of selection and design, and throughout the entire life cycle. Care for kitchen furniture in the presence of a quality hood will not be difficult. In the bedroom, living room, and hallway it is easy to do with standard measures. Proper care of upholstered furniture too will not be difficult, except that care will differ slightly, based on the material (velour, leather, eco-leather), and operating conditions (for example, whether there are children or pets in the house).

Caring for chipboard furniture

There is a widespread belief that particleboard is afraid of moisture. This is indeed true, so when buying products made of this material, pay attention to the quality of surface treatment. Namely: all ends should be seamlessly sealed (covered with an edge). Only this condition ensures the long life of the panels. Of course, if you pour water on the furniture, nothing good will come of it. But a reliable coating will retain moisture on its surface for the time it takes to collect it.

Caring for Natural Wood Furniture

Caring for solid wood furniture will require more effort than any other material. Natural materials are capricious. They do not tolerate high/low humidity and temperature, they should be protected from direct sunlight (to avoid fading). Therefore, if you dare to buy a cabinet that is made of natural wood, then be prepared to constantly maintain the temperature and humidity in the room (humidity of 65%, temperature not lower than +15 C). Cleaning with delicate detergents and wax-based products (gentle care) is acceptable. Mr.Doors uses solid wood only partially for its collections, so you get a result that not only visually meets your requirements, but also does not require exclusive care.

Care for polished furniture at home

As a rule, fingerprints and splatters are perfectly visible on shiny surfaces. Therefore, wipe the lacquered surface with a dry (NOT damp - there will be streaks) felt or flannel cloth often enough. The best stain remover is water with a little ammonia (6/1 ratio).

Care of white MDF furniture

MDF differs from other materials by its high resistance to moisture. It can be used safely even in bathrooms. Recommendation: pay attention to the quality of the coating - it must be perfectly flat and seamless. Use a soft, dry cloth to get rid of dust. With white and glossy furniture, these manipulations will have to be done more often, because every speck of dust is clearly visible on white.

There are no special rules for the care of dark matte furniture. As you may have noticed, it all depends on the material from which it is made. We invite you to visit your nearest Mr.Doors furniture studio, where they will not only help you choose the material for your future set, but also tell you more about how to care for furniture made of it.
