You just purchased one of our dining room sets and are very happy with how it looks in your home. This was an investment as people just don’t go out and buy new dining room sets every year. You want to keep your dining set looking great for years to come. In order to do this, you will need to do more than just dust the table and chairs every month.
The first thing you want to do is make sure your new dining set is in the proper environment. You really should avoid extreme room temperatures as this will indeed wreak havoc on your table and chairs. It would serve you best to keep room temperatures and humidity levels in your home within normal parameters. Another thing you want to do is make sure your table and chairs are not exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods of time. Direct sunlight is the enemy of your table and will cause the wood to fade, crack and otherwise show premature aging. That said, you should also make sure your dining set is kept away from radiators and fireplaces.
To better protect the surface of your table, you should avoid setting hot pans or dishes directly on the top of your table. This can leave burn marks. This is when a tablecloth come in handy as not only does it add beauty to your table, it is also a good way to protect the surface.
Proper care of your new dining room set will ensure it will look as good as new for years to come.
