Make bamboo furniture last longer:
1 Rain cover: Use weather resistant covers for the furniture to keep the moisture out. This will keep your furniture in good condition for years.
2 Cleanse gently: In order to prevent dust, dew, and other harmful deposits from building up on the furniture, wipe the surface of your furniture with a soft cloth using mildly soapy water. Harsh detergent or chemical can damage the natural colour and sheen of your furniture.
3 Seal up cracks: If the furniture begin to crack, you can sand the area with fine grit sandpaper. Once you have finished, apply paste wax to help seal the crack.
4 Vaccum well: Vacuum the furniture with an upholstery attachment vacuum cleaner. It will go into the nooks,
corners and cervices to remove the dirt and debris.
5 Polish well: Polishing increases the durability of bamboo furniture and gives it a shiny new look.
