Keep away from direct heat
When caring for wood, a primary concern is water damage—no finish is ever completely waterproof. It is also important to protect wood pieces from sudden changes in temperature or humidity, which can cause cracking or warping. Keep wood away from heat sources and the bleaching and drying effects of direct sunlight. In the most humid climates, mould may pose a secondary threat. In this case, regulate indoor humidity and keep objects from direct contact with the floor.
Regularly Clean any dust
The beauty of the antique carved wood piece makes it worthy of display so others can enjoy it as well. Over time, that carved work collects dust simply by being out in the open. If it's left uncleaned, dust may cake onto the piece. As time goes on, the dust becomes harder to remove while rendering the carving far less attractive. Dusting regularly is the key to keeping the carving looking its best, and requires materials soft enough to wipe dust away without scratching the wood.
A feather duster brushed over the carved wood is gentle enough to cause no harm to the antique while removing dust over the entire surface.
Regularly Polish Wood
Our reclaimed wood is well seasoned, naturally aged and inherently rustic in finish. This timber is very durable and is much less likely to shrink, move or crack than newer timber due to the low level of moisture. It has been finished with a wax seal but over time and left to the elements this richer colour will fade. To maintain a richer colour we recommend you use natural teak oil or a clear beeswax polish depending on the finish you wish to achieve.
Do not use any harsh chemicals
Wood is very sensitive to chemicals and may develop cracks or warps if harsh sprays and chemicals are used to clean. Avoid all harsh chemicals and cleaning products to clean wood. Simply use dry brush to remove any dust build up.
Generally wood should be kept indoors to avoid any changes to its colour, texture or shape. If kept out doors, wood will tend to fade in colour or may show signs of cracks. In some cases wood may warp. You may apply varnish to protect the wood if you choose to keep the wood out door and want to maintain its appearance.
Repairing and Restoration
Wood can be easily repaired or restored to its original glory. Simple cracks can be easily filled using a wood filler (can be bought online or from any DIY stores). Using a combination of coarse and fine sand papers smooth the wood filler when dry.
Wood Stains, Wood Waxes, Wood Oils or Wood Varnish will bring back the wood to its original condition and help the wood to last much longer. Follow the instructions on the labels to apply.
Wood Stains: To add or change the colour of the wood
Wood Wax: To protect the wood from moisture and give a satin sheen
Wood Oils: To protect the wood from mould, moisture
Wood Varnish: To protect the wood from natural elements, provides a glossy finish.
