HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR MELAMINE FURNITURE
Having melamine furniture guarantees timeless spaces, but if you want to make sure everything will last longer and look nicer, in this blog we’ll go over some useful points to teach you how to care for your melamine furniture.
In TuHome Furniture, we are making sure to provide you with the best quality pieces there are available. For this reason, we produce furniture that does not require much effort to clean or to keep in good condition. Basically, with our products the maintenance practices are simple and easy to do.
- Moving the furniture: This specific tip goes to all kinds of furniture, because it’s not only about the material itself. Whenever you have to move heavy furniture, it’s better if you ask for help from someone, because we recommend lifting the piece. Lifting it it’s always better than dragging it, it’ll help prevent union parts damages and the whole piece will stay in good condition for years.
- Iron pieces: In TuHome, our melamine furniture comes with drawer rails or desk hinges that help to keep the structure, but they also give great features and functionality. Sometimes these kinds of parts are forgotten, and we recommend you to clean and oil them occasionally.
- Cleaning methods: If accidentally you spilled soda or any other beverage on the surface of a melamine product, find a clean cloth you can use to dry the stains the faster you can. This and other cleaning methods only require having a soft lint-free cloth, water and soap. Do not use strong detergents or other chemical cleaners, they might damage the melamine surfaces.
- Prevent UV Effects: Direct exposure to the sun, means UV exposure. UV radiation is part of the energy that is constantly coming from the sun. As it happens with other materials, melamine will darken and mellow, losing texture and quality. One way to prevent UV rays damages, is to place your furniture in a way it won’t take direct light from the sun. If you want to restore the way it looked years ago, painting the surfaces is another option you can choose.
