Moisture poses a great threat for furniture. It can damage the
varnish of wooden furniture, causes iron furniture to rust and
also causes wooden furniture to expand and contract as it
absorbs and releases moisture. Therefore, it is essential to
protect furniture from moisture for their longevity. Moisture
absorbers are materials or objects which help in absorbing
moisture and preventing your furniture from getting damaged.
They can be moisture absorbing granules, moisture absorbing
paint, wood toner etc. Water repellent preservative stains
contain a fungicide and water repellent thereby protecting
against decay, mildew, warping, splitting and cracking as well
as wood deterioration.
