Do not rush to dispose of old furniture, just because they are damaged, with broken wheels, hinges or shelves, or just worn. We will restore them regaining the original appearance and preserving the internal structure of the furniture.
– First, they are more valuable, for their decoration are used veneers of precious wood (walnut, sycamore, olive, oak) instead of plastic foils and melamine finishes.
– Furniture manufactured before 50 or 100 years are several times more functional than the modern simple furniture on offer on a mass scale, especially cheap solutions lacking any specifics on the use of a given piece of furniture for any purpose.
– They are more functional than the original, but very impractical and irrelevant “design” solutions.
– Old furniture is made of solid wood and a hundred percent natural materials, unlike modern made of chipboard. The specialists classify the emissions (fumes) from formaldehyde resins used in the manufacture of chipboard as the main reason for the formation of allergic reactions at home.
– They are robust. Wood and plywood panels, of which are made the old furniture is 500% more resistant to breakage and damage due to moisture.
The most common defects in old furniture are broken or loose legs, worn or broken hinges, broken or scratched cover, apparently faded. There is no point to discard them just because of this.
With modern solutions for restoration the original look and luster of the old furniture are achieved and a long life for your old wardrobe, chest or table is ensured.
In the reconstruction of antique furniture we pay special attention to the pest in wood. These are different types of fungi, molds and microorganisms that live and feed on the wood. Furniture can successfully escape from these pests, even when they are severely attacked.
Wood-destroying fungi are the most common tree pests. The danger of contamination with fungi grows when moisture content increased over 20% in the long term, and the residential premises are ideal for this. It is important to prevent the accumulation of moisture in the wood.
Among the microorganisms the most serious pests in the wood are the old-house borer, the common furniture beetle, and others. Favorable conditions for growth of these pests are found in our homes. Damages can be seen easily – the holes in the surface of the wood and inside the larvae drill irregular oval and broad strokes.
Almost every antique furniture is attacked and partially damaged by these pests. So we pay close attention to the pre-treatment of wood with appropriate preparations for long-term protection and guarantee the pests extermination and the efficient “seal” of the surface for a period of 15-25 years, depending on the agent used.
