Solid wood cabinet maintenance
Pure solid wood cabinets, because the door panels are made of pure solid wood, are natural and environmentally friendly products. They are expensive. Because of its value, the owners can take care of it. Compared with ordinary cabinets, solid wood cabinets are slightly more complicated to maintain. There are certain requirements for temperature and humidity, and special attention should be paid to winter maintenance. 1. Influence of temperature difference: The most ideal environment for solid wood cabinets is between 18 degrees Celsius and 24 degrees Celsius and relative humidity between 35% and 40%. Please avoid placing the cabinets near heat sources or air-conditioning vents. Pay attention to the humidity in the kitchen during the rainy season in winter to avoid evaporation of excess water and increase indoor moisture. The water on the door panel should be wiped off in time. 2. Avoid direct sunlight: try to avoid long-term exposure of outdoor sunlight to the whole or part of the cabinet. It is best to place it in a place that can avoid sunlight, or use transparent gauze curtains to separate direct sunlight. In this way, it does not affect the indoor lighting, but also allows the soft light to add a touch of warm and romantic atmosphere to the room, while protecting the indoor cabinets. 3. Avoid scratches from hard objects: When cleaning, do not allow cleaning tools to touch the cabinets, and usually pay attention not to let hard metal products or other sharp objects collide with the furniture to protect the surface from scratches. 4. Avoid using alcohol, gasoline or other chemical solvents to remove stains: If there are stains on the surface of the cabinet, do not wipe it hard. You can gently remove the stains with warm tea water. After the moisture evaporates, apply a little wax to the original part, and then light it. Rub the ground several times to form a protective film. 5. Pay attention to the cleaning and maintenance of the surface of the cabinet: the surface of the solid wood cabinet is painted with paint, which is particularly important for the maintenance and maintenance of the paint film. Once the paint film is damaged, it will not only affect the appearance of the surface, but also further affect the internal structure of the product. Therefore, you should always keep the cabinets clean. Use a pure cotton dry soft cloth to gently wipe off the floating dust on the surface every day. At regular intervals, use a damp cotton thread that has been wrung to remove the dust from the corners of the cabinet and use it again. Wipe it dry with a clean, dry soft cotton cloth.

However, you must be cautious when choosing light wax, and must not use inferior products containing chemically corrosive ingredients.
