Control The Environment
To avoid cracks and splits in wood panels, keep the indoor humidity levels between 35% and 45%. Avoid placing furniture in direct sunlight or near other heat sources such as stoves or radiators. Never store furniture in an attic or damp basement.
Avoid dusting with a dry cloth, this may cause tiny scratches in the finish. Always use a soft damp cloth following the grain. If using a polish, avoid ones containing ammonia or silicon. Clean up spills immediately using warm soapy water.
