Safe Cleaning Tips for Antique Furniture Godalming

Antique furniture possesses a timeless allure, adding character and charm to any home. At Haus Maids, catering to Godalming and the surrounding areas including Guildford and numerous villages such as Haslemere, Shalford, and more, we understand the significance of preserving and maintaining the beauty of antique pieces within your home.


Why Safely Cleaning Antique Furniture Matters

Antique furniture requires delicate care to maintain its original beauty. Here are essential tips to safely clean and preserve these valuable pieces:

Gentle Dusting: Begin with gentle dusting using a soft, lint-free cloth or a natural-bristle brush. This removes loose dust and dirt without harming the wood.

Use Mild Cleaners: For wooden surfaces, use a mild cleaner specifically formulated for antique furniture or mix a small amount of mild soap with water. Test on a small, inconspicuous area first.

Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Refrain from using harsh chemicals or generic cleaning products that can damage the wood finish or patina. Ammonia-based cleaners should be avoided.

Care for Varnished Surfaces: If the antique piece is varnished, apply a small amount of specialized varnish cleaner sparingly and wipe gently with a clean, soft cloth following the grain.

 Preserve Ornate Details: Delicate ornaments and carvings require extra care. Use a soft brush or a cotton swab to clean intricate details, ensuring no moisture build up.

Regular Waxing: Apply a thin layer of high-quality furniture wax suitable for antique wood to protect and enhance the wood’s natural shine. Buff gently with a soft cloth for a polished finish.
