Preventing Sun Damage
PROTECT YOUR PRICELESS ANTIQUES FROM FADING TOO FAST.
While it’s great for you and your plants, having a home drenched in sunlight at all times of the day can increase the risk of damaging your furniture, especially if you have antique pieces. Here are a few tips for protecting your valued artifacts from too much sun.
Take preventative measures. Dust and polish regularly, and use a protective coating wherever possible.
Limit the sun’s rays. Drape your windows with curtains, hang blinds or layer on a window film that blocks UV rays. You can easily open up the windows when you’re home or have guests over to visit.
Think about heat. The sun isn’t the only potential source of damage—be sure to keep furniture away from air vents where blasting hot air could potentially harm your antiques.
