Always clean the wood regularly. This will stop a build-up of bacteria that could lead to the weakening of the wood. This is particularly important if the furnishing is a dining table or another surface that is exposed to foodstuffs. Any dropped food or liquid could damage the wood if not cleaned away immediately. The bacteria from the food may enter the wood over time. To clean the surface, simply moisten a high quality cloth with furniture cleaner or mineral spirits and wipe down the surfaces.
It is important to treat any stains or blemishes as soon as they occur. Neglecting a stain will only allow it to worsen. If the stain is treated immediately there is a good chance that the damage will be reversible. Clean with mineral spirits or camphorated oil depending on the intensity of the stain. Repair any watermarks, burns and chips as soon as humanly possible. In the case of a chip, speak to an antique furniture expert as to how to best fill the chip.
Ensure that you monitor what your wood is being exposed to at all times. The vast majority of cases of damage being caused to oak is due to hot, corrosive or dirty objects being placed atop it. Many examples of this damage can be treated but the best course of action is prevention.
Finally, if the problem seems very large then the best solution would be to talk to a reliable specialist immediately. Their expert knowledge will be able to solve a wide range of different problems and issues that Rustic Oak Furniture may encounter.
