We’re talking about Small Side Tables. Small Side Tables are put in a number of places in your home and are used for any and every job from holding books to lamps to drinks and anything else you decide to put on the surface. From day to day their job changes and what you expect of them changes, yet you don’t give them any extra love than you do the other pieces of furniture in your home. Well, its time to look at your end tables a little differently. They need as much, if not more, maintenance than the other pieces of furniture in your home. So let’s take a look at some of the maintenance steps you should be taking.
Wood Side Tables
If you have side tables that are made out of wood then you need to make sure you are properly taking care of the wood surface as well as the rest of the pieces of the table. You can expect that the tops of those wood side tables is going to need a little more care than many other parts of your furniture. You should dust them off regularly. Dust that is left on the surface can be rubbed in and create scratches or damage to the finish. Try to dust your tables at least once a week.
Next you need to wash them. From time to time take a damp rag with warm soapy water and go over the surface of your wood tables. This will remove any dirt or grime that has been left behind by those who have been using these tables.
Finally, you should regularly polish and wax these tables to keep them looking new.
Glass Side Tables
Many people choose glass side tables as the perfect accents to their homes. They can well be as long as they are well taken care of.
The first thing you need to think of when it comes to glass tables is that you want to keep them looking bright and beautiful looking. Regularly dust and wash off the tabletop surface. You may also want to use Windex and some other similar chemical to really clean the glass and make it shine. We can not stress the importance of keeping the glass dusted and cleaned regularly. Whether you know it or not, small pieces of dirt and debris that are left on the table can eventually be scratched into the surface, marring the tabletop.
