Most homes contain wooden surfaces, furniture, and objects finished in a variety of ways. Some of the objects and surfaces in the home, however, require more attention than regular cleaning routine provides. Different types of wood vary in terms of hardness and colour, but all get damaged by air, exposure to moisture and sunlight. Hence all wooden surface elements are kept away from direct sunlight to the extent possible. Wood is easily damaged by heat and scratching.
Heat from any hot dishes or any not objects can cause white stains on the wooden surfaces. Hence avoid placing hot objects directly onto the wood. Use trivets to protect wood from hot dishes.
