CARING for WOODEN CHIAVARI CHAIRS
INSPECT THEM REGULARLY
Be sure to give each chair a once-over before and after events, tightening any loose bolts, staples or brackets that you have a. If any support pieces are cracked or otherwise damaged, you should replace the chair immediately. (This is why it's recommended to have extra wooden Chiavari in your own chairs so you inventory left aren't.)

 

Address MINOR ISSUES BEFORE they BECOME MAJOR
If you do have a splintering or separation of joints, add furniture glue to the problem areas as needed. If you're proactive with little Knicks or problems with your chairs, you'll be able to nip bigger issues in the bud before they are happen.

 

PROPER STORAGE is key
When your wooden Chiavari chairs are not in use, make sure that they are are safely stored for best protection. During transport, you can stack them up to 7-8 chairs high, but you may want to go even higher when they aren't in use to maximize storage space. Also, it's important to avoid storing any wooden furniture in very humid areas. Excessive moisture in the air can case wood frames to swell, which diminishes their lifespan and durability.

 

CONSIDER PROTECTIVE COVERS
Most of the maintenance on your chairs would be alleviated with the use of protective covers. A 3/4 length Chiavari cover on each chair would not only protect the chairs from scuffs when being transported, but they also keep the chairs dust-free when in storage. A small initial investment in chair covers up front would substantially reduce your own operating expenses down the road.

 

CLEANING your CHIAVARIS
Wooden Chiavari chairs are either painted or stained and generally sealed with a clear coat (or several coats) of polyurethane. That means you won't need to (and shouldn't) use harsh cleaning agents to keep your wood Chiavaris clean. Using warm water with a little bit of dish soap and a clean, soft rag, you'll be able to easily remove food, dirt or grease from the chair frames. Be sure to dry thoroughly to avoid any swelling of the wood.
