Monsoon is almost here and with it brings the weather perfect to enjoy the fried delicacies and hot beverages with your favorite book or the binge watching of a favorite show. It is time for colorful umbrellas and multi-hued raincoats. But, along with the fun that monsoon brings, be sure to take care for your furniture. The humid air can even make the solid wood furniture face strong challenges.
Wooden furniture, such as beds, wall shelves, chairs and the rest require a little extra care. The moisture in the air can seep in the furniture and play havoc. Doors and windows will swell, making it difficult to close. However, all these problems can easily be taken care of with timely precautions.

Follow these tips and make sure that your wooden furniture stays as perfect as always:
1. Keep your furniture away from windows, door and damp spaces. It will protect them from direct water.

3. Avoid placing soggy clothes or damp towels on the back of wooden chairs.
4. Keeps your rooms, dry and free of moisture from cross ventilation.
