In this article I will tell you how to remove a dent not only on furniture, but also on any wooden surface. I emphasize that the surface should be uncoated, i.e. natural wood or as they call it, array.
Most often during the arrival the furniture will inevitably be damaged. So it was with us, as a result of which I want to share the way we removed the dents from the wooden furniture.
This method is great not only for furniture, but also for wooden floors, doors, etc.
Stage 1: What we need
The trick is pretty simple. We will use iron and steam.
We will need:
- Paper towels or rag
Stage 2: Steam the wood
Carefully water the dent. Water should not be too much, it is enough to fill the hole.
Cover it all with a paper towel or cloth. Water will soak it, it should be.
Now turn on the iron to the maximum and keep it in the deformed area, you can make small movements forward / back and in a circle. Press the iron firmly until your paper towel is dry. This will take some time until the water evaporates.
At this time, wood fibers absorb water and expand, returning to its original position.
Repeat this procedure several times until the dent is raised to the same level as the rest of the surface.
Stage 3: Grinding
At this stage, the dent should already straighten and the surface will look pretty smooth. However, depending on the size of the damage, defects may still be noticeable.
Using sandpaper, we can lightly polish the surface of the wood. In the end, everything will look as if nothing has happened to the furniture!
