Wicker Rattan Furniture Care Common Sense, Do You Know?

  Furniture is the protagonist of home decoration. Its versatility and practicality determine its price, so it is impossible for everyone to change furniture frequently, so its maintenance is particularly important. Below, Huzhou Dali Outdoor Furniture Manufacturer will introduce some maintenance methods of wicker rattan furniture.

  Wicker rattan furniture maintenance points one: avoid direct sunlight

  The ultraviolet rays in the sun will make the rattan denatured and brittle, and the long-term sunlight will make the white rattan furniture yellow, make the brown-red shiny red rattan furniture partially fade, and make the wicker rattan furniture dry, loose and fall off.

  Therefore, it is important to avoid direct sunlight. You may wish to use translucent white tulle curtains to block direct sunlight and protect the wicker rattan furniture without affecting indoor lighting.

  Wicker rattan furniture maintenance points two: Avoid close to fire and heat sources

  In the north, the radiator for heating in winter is the enemy of wicker rattan furniture. If you put the rattan seat close to the radiator, you will find after about a month that the rattan near the seat has already become dry and brittle, and its toughness has deteriorated, making it difficult to recover after sitting.

  Therefore, remember that rattan products should not be close to fire and heat sources. If you want to put very hot food such as hot pot and casserole on the rattan dining table, you must remember to put heat insulation pads on it.

  Wicker rattan furniture maintenance points three: keep ventilation

  The cross-section of the vine is covered with fine ducts, so the wicker rattan furniture can absorb a certain amount of water. However, if too much moisture is absorbed, the furniture will become soft, loose in structure, sagging in plane, and mold spots will easily grow in the woven mesh.

  Therefore, if you are in the south, especially during the rainy season, the ventilation of wicker rattan furniture is particularly important. On sunny days, clean the furniture and move it to a place with drafts to "air dry" to avoid mildew and keep it dry. Don't ask for "dry" eagerness, and lift it to a place exposed to direct sunlight. The contrast between damp and dry can easily deform or even break quickly.

  Wicker rattan furniture maintenance points four: avoid moisture deformation

  The placement of books on the rattan bookshelf follows the principle of being heavy on both sides and light in the middle, so that the weight of the books can be placed symmetrically on the left and right to prevent the bookcase from sagging and deforming due to the weight in the middle.

  The advantage of wicker rattan furniture is that it will be fixed into its original shape after being deformed by moisture, and it will still return to its original shape and size after being blown dry or dried in the shade. Therefore, when rattan furniture sags due to damp, find ways to reduce its load, support it skillfully and evenly, keep it in its original weaving shape, and prevent gap deformation. If it is a seat, you can put a square stool or a storage box under it through the rattan surface to help support the rattan surface so that it can dry slowly without deformation.

  Wicker rattan furniture maintenance points five: anti-insect

  What should I do when I find signs of moths in the wicker rattan furniture? Pepper noodles or hot pepper noodles can kill insects and prevent moths, and there is no damage to the rattan. Stir-fry half a tael of Chinese prickly ash and half a tael of fine salt together, grind them, stuff them into the moth holes, and then wrap the moth noodles tightly with plastic cloth or small plastic bags to keep the smell from leaking out. The same operation method is used to switch to hot pepper noodles. After the moth surface is airtight to kill insects, the plastic cloth is untied, and the moth surface is partially poured with boiling water to kill the remaining moths. Dry with a soft towel afterwards to prevent the spread of moths.

  Sealed wicker rattan furniture, such as wardrobes, glove cabinets, bookcases with doors, etc., can hang one or two small cloth bags mixed with fresh pepper and fine salt in the cabinet, which also has the effect of moth prevention.

  Daily cleaning method:

  1. The wicker rattan furniture can be cleaned with a brush or a vacuum cleaner.

  2. Scrub the wicker rattan furniture with a damp cloth and mild detergent.

  3. If the wicker rattan furniture has been used for a long time, if there is scale, scrub it with salt water, which can not only decontaminate, but also make the rattan soft and elastic.
