Ensure you Have the Necessary Products
Metal furniture needs a different cleaning routine to your typical wooden or plastic furniture. You should aim to wipe down your new furniture often with a soft cloth to rid the surface of dust, which can show up quite prominently, especially in highly reflective or chromed pieces. Try to avoid using rough materials when tending to your furniture, as it can scuff the surface. Oil based products such as baby oil are great for removing fingerprints, so make sure you have some tucked away.
Strong detergents and rough materials should be avoided if you want your metal furniture to look stunning for longer. Our Naples metal and glass end table is stunning and would look perfect as a side table in your living room. In order to ensure it keeps its shine, make sure you wipe it regularly, and don't use harsh chemicals.
Do's and Don'ts
Your home furnishings are incredibly important in making your house look like a home, so you need them to reflect who you are, and they need to fully capture the vibe that you're going for. Metal furniture is classic and opulent, and will draw in attention from all guests who come to visit. As previously mentioned, you should always use a cloth to wipe down your metal furniture, and use cleaning products that aren't harsh or strong, such as bleach.
You should never leave your metal furniture wet, as this can cause rusting. Instead, make sure you wipe away any excess moisture with a soft cloth. You should also avoid getting your metal furniture incredibly hot, as it can not only damage the material but be a hazard to people in your home. Keep metal product dry to prevent tarnishing which can dull or destroy the surface. Avoid using abrasive cleaners that can scratch and dull metal surfaces.
Rub the metal with straight back-and-forth motions, rather than in circles, to help maintain a uniform appearance. Apply metal cleaner with a clean, soft, lint-free cloth and prevent undiluted liquid dish-washing detergents from coming into direct contact with metal as it can damage the finish.
