01 Jun How to Maintain Your Antiques During the Summer￼
It’s important that you know how to properly care for your treasured antiques and furniture, especially when the weather is warming up. Warmer temperatures can affect your favorite pieces. Here are three ways you can maintain your antiques in the heat and humidity this summer!
- Adjust Your Heat and Humidity. Did you know that fluctuations in temperature and humidity can cause furniture joints and drawers to be damaged over time? The key to keeping your antiques well preserved is by making sure you avoid extreme heat and/or humidity. It’s also important to note that you should never store your antiques in humid places such as a garage, attic, or outdoor shed.
- Give Your Antiques a Clean. Cleaning your antiques can help them look their best and also prevent them from damage. Cleaning your antiques means you are stopping bacteria and dust from collecting and causing the antiques to lose their beautiful shine. Be sure to do proper research on what products you can or cannot use for your specific piece.
