Anti-heating office furniture in summer
Summer high temperature, dryness, humidity, and pest breeding will bring severe tests to wooden office furniture. If you do not pay attention and protection, it will easily reduce the service life of furniture. Therefore, it is imminent to start the "defense war" of summer office furniture.
Try to avoid placing it at the vent
Not only in the spring and autumn seasons, but also because of the particularity of the materials such as solid wood furniture and flooring, wooden furniture is also easy to "get on fire" in hot summer weather. Strong summer light and prolonged sun exposure can easily cause cracks and partial discoloration of wooden office furniture. In summer, because windows are often opened to ventilate, the accompanying dust is also easy to hide in small gaps. If it is not cleaned regularly, they will become the culprit of aging furniture over time.
Wooden office furniture is best placed away from direct sunlight, or separated from direct sunlight with translucent tulle curtains. In this way, it will not affect the indoor lighting and protect the indoor furniture. In addition, the furniture should be placed as far as possible from the vents, and the surface should be oil-sealed as soon as possible. Because the wood is easily air-dried at the vent at this time, the moisture in the wood will be lost, which will easily cause the wood surface to dry and crack.
Insect-resistant treatment of solid wood furniture
In summer, the protection of furniture also caused a lot of headaches for the public. Ascaris are usually formed from eggs and are parasitic in solid wood furniture or solid wood flooring. Because the texture of pine wood in solid wood furniture is relatively soft, it is easier to breed tapeworms. In addition, other softwoods such as alder and poplar are also prone to tapeworms. If there is a moth-eaten phenomenon in solid wood furniture, the size of the outbreak must be checked first. When a moth-eye is found, the more basic method is to grind the camphor ball into powder and apply it to the moth-eye, or buy an insecticide to inject the moth-eye and seal the moth. . It is best to repaint the furniture surface after removing insects from solid wood furniture that has been exposed to tapeworms.
In order to avoid unnecessary troubles caused by insects in the office furniture in the future, the citizens must ensure that they are treated with insects prevention when purchasing solid wood furniture. Among all kinds of wood, natural camphor, teak, fir and boxwood all have insect-proof functions, while other woods, such as cherry wood, alder, beech, and mahogany, do not have insect-proof functions, so they need to be made in furniture. Take precautionary measures at all times. For some furniture corners that have not been damaged, you can use paint such as raw tung oil, shellac or varnish to brush the surface of the wooden cabinet to isolate the maggots from the air to achieve the purpose of preventing maggots.
Keep solid wood furniture away from walls
In addition to the scorching sun, there are often heavy rains that accompany summer. Due to the wetness, some owners can often see their furniture, walls or floors wet. Therefore, when placing office furniture, it is best to maintain a certain gap between the wall and the wall to reduce the chance of moisture. Especially for wooden floors, in long-term vacant rooms, wooden floors are more prone to excessive moisture, leading to arching and curling, which require regular inspection and ventilation. In heavy-humidity houses, charcoal, dehumidifiers, and moisture-proof films can also be used to reduce indoor humidity. In addition, when mopping the floor, pay attention to water control and regular waxing.
In wet weather, it is best not to rush the construction of the wall paint and wood paint, otherwise problems such as cracking, deterioration or moldy yellowing are prone to occur. Especially when the air humidity is high, the coatings such as gypsum, putty and latex paint should be avoided as much as possible.
