It is important that you maintain your furniture regularly so that it looks new for longer. There are some specific things that you need to do to keep the life span of your furniture and to prolong its life. The first thing that you need to do is to vacuum your furniture on a regular basis, once every two months or so. Use a light weight vacuum cleaner to thoroughly vacuum the furniture.
Let the dust dry completely before placing any more duster cloths on it. Also apply an anti-static agent to keep the electrical charges from sticking to the wooden surface. Next use a thin layer of wax to protect the wooden surface and let dry. Finally sand lightly making sure to get all the edges and corners.
