Tips to Avoid Bugs in New Furniture

Investing in new furniture for your home is exciting, but reports of unwelcome bugs inside newly delivered pieces can turn that excitement into a messy ordeal. To ensure your furniture enhances rather than disrupts your living space, consider the following questions before making a purchase:

1. Wood Source and Phytosanitary Certification: Question: Where does the wood come from, and does it have a phytosanitary certificate?
Explanation: Manufacturers often use wood with a phytosanitary certificate, ensuring that the wood has undergone pest control measures before being shipped from the supplier.

2. Solid Wood vs. Compressed Wood: Question: Is the furniture made from solid wood or compressed wood?
Explanation: Solid wood is more resistant to bugs than compressed wood if the latter is not adequately sealed. Opting for solid wood provides an added layer of protection against pest infiltration.

3. Quality of Painting: Question: Has the wood been properly painted?
Explanation: The furniture manufacturing process requires thorough drying of the wood before painting. Quality painting not only enhances aesthetics but also acts as a protective barrier against potential bug risks. Poorly painted furniture may lead to issues like cracking over time.
