Keeping Your Live Edge Pine Dining Table Looking It’s Best

Maintaining the beauty and longevity of your Pine Live Edge Dining Table requires regular care and attention. Here are some tips to help you keep your table looking like new:

  • Cleaning:
    • Use a soft, damp cloth to wipe the surface clean after each use to remove any spills, crumbs, or dust.
    • Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners as they can damage the finish and natural beauty. Instead, opt for mild soap or specialized cleaners.
    • Dry the table thoroughly after cleaning to prevent water damage.
  • Protection:
    • Place coasters or placemats under glasses, dishes, and hot items to prevent direct contact with the surface, which can cause water rings or heat damage.
    • Use trivets or heat-resistant pads under hot cookware or serving dishes to protect the surface from heat-related damage.
  • Avoid Direct Sunlight:
    • Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause the finish to fade and lose its natural color. Position the table away from direct sunlight or use curtains/blinds to reduce UV exposure.
  • Regular Dusting:
    • Dust your table regularly using a soft, lint-free cloth or a feather duster to prevent dust buildup, which can dull the table’s appearance over time.
  • Polishing:
    • Clean the surface with a high-quality multi purpose cleaner, and polish with furniture wax to enhance the wood’s natural shine and provide a protective layer. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for application.
  • Humidity Control:
    • Wood is sensitive to fluctuations in humidity, which can cause it to expand or contract. Maintain a stable indoor humidity level (ideally between 40% to 45%) to minimize the risk of warping, cracking, or splitting.
    • Consider using a humidifier or dehumidifier as needed, especially in extreme weather conditions.
  • Scratch Prevention:
    • Place felt or rubber pads under objects that are frequently moved on the table, such as vases, centerpieces, or decorative items, to prevent scratches.
  • Regular Inspections:
    • Periodically inspect your table for any signs of damage, such as cracks, splits, or loose joints. Address any issues promptly to prevent them from worsening.
  • Avoid Heavy Impact:
    • Be cautious when handling heavy items near the table to prevent accidental impacts that could dent or damage the wood.
  • Professional Maintenance:
    • If your table starts to show signs of wear or damage beyond your ability to repair, consider consulting a professional furniture restorer for advice or restoration services.

Remember that Pine Live Edge Dining Tables are meant to showcase the natural beauty of wood, including its imperfections and unique characteristics. Proper care and maintenance will help you preserve these qualities and enjoy your table for years to come.
