News-Antique.com - Sep 01,2008 - Is there a difference in care of furniture depending on the age of the objects. Care for antique made furniture is similar to care for modern day items. Furniture care for antiques can be a little more complex than the newer furniture available today. For antique, hard wood surfaces are common and usually a good polish can be used to keep or restore the shine on that wooden-made antique such as a table or hutch. Historic furniture made of cloth can be steam cleaned and covered with plastic to keep it dust and dirt free as well as preventing any rips or tears. Many antique sofas and chairs have the cloth and wood combined. Again the wood can be polished but if there are nicks or chips in the wood, sanding and filling of wood chips can be performed to fix the flaws.
