4 Ways To Protect Your Antiques
Having beautiful antique pieces is a great way to take your home’s appearance to the next level. Do you know how to protect your antiques? Here are 4 ways you can protect your antiques to maintain their value.
1. Gently clean your antiques. Make sure that when you are cleaning your antiques, you aren’t using harsh fabrics or chemicals. Next time you clean your antiques, make sure to use a soft or dampened cloth to avoid damage.
2. Don’t discard original pieces. Sometimes, it’s challenging to find the exact piece for your antique replacement. It’s important that you save any broken pieces and bring them to a professional so that they can make repairs. If you need an antique repaired, bring it to Pender’s so we can restore it for you.
3. Use a dehumidifier. Did you know that a dehumidifier can make your antiques last longer? If there is excessive humidity, your antiques have the chance of rotting, developing mold, or even inviting unwanted guests like termites and cockroaches.
4. Keep your antiques out of direct sunlight. It’s crucial that you don’t let your antiques sit in direct sunlight, especially wooden antiques. The heat can damage the finish of the wood and can cause discoloration and fading.
