With the holidays fast approaching it’s the perfect time of year to give things away! What could be better than to share with our clients some of the knowledge we’ve accumulated over the years? For over 50 years now we have been a steady supplier of wood furniture components operating locally as an American wood furniture part manufacturer. From drafting the initial designs to producing varying volumes of wood part runs, we’ve had plenty of time to learn what works well and what doesn’t! In the article that follows, we’ve put together a few tried and true facts to help answer your questions, and the questions of your customers.
One of the simplest things that can make a big difference to the end user is knowing how to deal with accidents to their wood furniture. As a supplier to the end users, our clients purchase from us either wood furniture parts or volumes of finished contract wood furniture. In turn, they are the ones who then field a wide range of questions from their buyers. We’ve put together a few FAQ’s to help you answer your customer’s questions:
How do I deal with water-damaged furniture? Water damage can be a challenge! Depending on the degree of damage, your first step is to clean the affected areas with an antibacterial. Dish soap or antibacterial hand soap will work. Next, dry the furniture out. Keep in mind that fast, high heat can warp wood. You want to apply slow, dry heat over time. Force fans work well and don’t necessarily require additional heating; this can take 3 to 4 days, or more. Once the furniture is completely dry you can assess if it’s possible to refinish the furniture. If not, you can order new wood furniture parts to replace pieces such as chair legs, chair seats or table legs etc.
