Maintaining your Reclaimed Wood.
Maintaining your reclaimed wood is not as difficult as one might think. Obviously, it will take a little bit of care, because you want the reclaimed wood to last as long as possible. One of the main things you need to do is make sure that your new piece of wood is properly finished. Before you do all of this, you want to be sure that your reclaimed wood is already clean. If your wood is not clean, there are many different ways to get everything cleaned. You can go to a hardware store and take a look to see if there is a specific type of cleaner for reclaimed wood? If you are unsure about this, it is recommended that you ask one of the sales associates for assistance.
You want to be sure that you mention you have reclaimed wood, because you do not want any harsh cleaners that will strip down the oils in the wood and you don’t want any of the existing finish to be removed. If you are looking for more of a natural approach, you can always use a mixture of olive oil, white vinegar, and water – however this is for reclaimed wood that does not have a finish on it already. If the wood does have some type of finish or a treatment, then it is safe to stick with gentle soap and a damp cleaning rag. Should you see areas that might be a bit more difficult to clean – it is safe to use a soft brush to scrub out any extra debris. Be careful that you are not applying too much pressure and you also want to use extra water to help get any of the debris out of the cracks. Don’t worry about watermarks either, most of the time you can get rid of a watermark using a bit of baking soda, salt, and water. Even non-gel toothpaste can work for getting out the water stains. One of the main things to watch for is heat on your reclaimed wood. No matter what always be sure that you use a hot pad or some type of plate to prevent any of the heat making direct contact to your reclaimed wood top. General maintenance on this type of furniture is going to preserve the life and the quality of your wood.
