WE WANT TO HELP YOU KEEP YOUR FURNITURE LOOKING GREAT FOR LONGER SO HERE AT THE FURNITURE STORE NI WE STRIVE TO GIVE YOU AS MUCH HELPFUL INFORMATION AS WE CAN, HERE IS A FEW POINTERS ON HOW TO KEEP YOUR MIRRORED FURNITURE LOOKING FRESH.
1.Make sure that you regularly dust your mirrored furniture with a soft microfibre cloth to prevent dust build-up and maintain that gleaming reflection. Even the slightest layer of dust can be enough to noticeably dull your furniture’s shine, as the mirror essentially doubles the visible layer of dust!
2.Avoid dragging items across the mirrored surface as it may leave scrapes and scratches. Take care when arranging vases or other heavy items on the mirrored surface to gently lift and place them down.
3.Mirrored furniture manufacturers always recommend keeping staining substances (such as hair dye, lotions, perfumes and alcohol) away from the surface. But let’s face it. If you have a mirrored dressing table, this is going to be where all those “staining substances” live. And even when you take special care not to let your cosmetics come into contact with the dressing table surface, unfortunately, more often than you would like, it does. The best solution is always immediate action. The odd spill every now and again is harmless, so long as you use a slightly dampened cloth to clean the spill as soon as it happens. However, if you leave the spill over a long period of time, even if it’s just water, it can cause a lasting stain on the mirror.
4.Always use a non-solvent based glass cleaner when cleaning mirrored furniture, gently wiping the surface with a soft microfibre cloth. Rather than spraying any glass cleaner onto the furniture itself, instead spray the cloth. A white vinegar and water solution can help to maintain that perfect shine and remove any residual streaks and smears. Never use a general purpose cleaning spray, as this can dull the reflection of the mirror. You need something that is specifically suited to mirror and glass alike.
5.When doing a thorough clean or performing any repairs or substitutions on mirrored furniture (such as switching handles or knobs), never over-tighten anything that screws in as it can be very easy to crack the glass. Tighten until it’s firm and there is no wobble. Once you reach that point, stop. Don’t attempt to squeeze it tight.
6.Keep mirrored furniture away from high-traffic areas of your home where anyone may accidentally scrape against the furniture. Mirrored console tables are great at visually widening hallways but, if early morning rush tends to see multiple people squeezing past each other in the hallway, this illusion can cause people to scratch the mirror with their coat zip or bag while brushing past.
