Are not all furniture supplier Indonesia consistences with their business, some of them just to get profit ignoring quality and quantity. Some low quality still come up with defected item such as:
Humidity defect, high moisture content during manufacturing process is the leading cause of defects that develop after furniture arrives on destination countries. Furniture Indonesia presents some of the most challenging environments in which to manufacture wood products due to typically high humidity conditions. If the moisture content of furniture is too high then defects will develop as components shrink while equalizing to the lower humidity conditions of destination countries.
No other quality control company has done or will do more than outlook International in monitoring and working with its vendor base to control the moisture content levels of its customer products, we are Inspection Service Indonesia would be your team player as your inspector staff begin monitoring the moisture content of component parts as they enter the machining departments and are continuously monitored until packed. Component parts and assemblies found to have excessive moisture levels are required to be re-dried prior to shipping. Outlook also has extensive experience in the use of exotic veneers such as crotch mahogany and burls that must be produced in a very controlled process and environment.Link to top
Hard wood or especially soft wood which continues to breath, based upon changes in the local (home, office, store, etc.) humidity and temperature. On the individual furniture piece there may be slight defects, such as knots, and shake (small cracks in the surface of the wood). Some minor shrinkage may sometimes occur. These natural irregularities in hard or soft wood enhance its overall uniqueness.
Do not place this product next to a radiator or in direct sunlight, wood is a natural product and will expand if subjected to damp and will shrink and may crack if subjected to heat, for furniture product either indoor furniture or outdoor furniture it is recommended with no sudden temperature fluctuations, up or down, do not place hot or chilled items directly on to the surface, use a place mat or marking will occur.Link to top
Loose Weave Defect
Choosing any wicker furniture will allow you to have strong furniture set, but not all wicker furniture is high quality, look for a tight, strong weave, or furniture that is simply molded to imitate the look of wicker weaving, a loose weave will lead to fast breakdown of the furniture, as well as discomfort when sitting in the chairs.
Choose the right amount of furniture. If you have a small patio or balcony, one or two chairs may be sufficient, but larger patio spaces will require more chairs and a larger table to accommodate several guests, if you will be primarily lounging on the wicker furniture, choose adjustable and reclining deck chairs that are comfortable and sturdy, regardless of what types of furniture you buy, make sure the units are sturdy and feature stout legs that can handle a fair amount of weight, the chairs and tables should not buckle under load, and they should not wobble or otherwise sway when loaded down.
Consider wicker furniture that features cushions, these cushions will enhance the comfort of chairs and recliners, but it is important to choose the right types of cushions, choose cushions made from synthetic materials that are at least water resistant, if not waterproof, and make sure they are quick drying. These cushions should be easy to clean, either by machine washing or hand washing. Some cushions can simply be sprayed off with a hose and air dried, which is perhaps the most convenient option, if possible, choose cushions that can somehow be secured to the chair to prevent shifting during use.Link to top
Our page top photo of a mold damaged home shows an area with many different surfaces, materials, and in some cases different genera/species of mold contamination.
The difference between what molds are found in buildings and what molds commonly grow on various building surfaces is that most mold tests and mold reports involve samples collected by people who are not expert at recognizing and sampling mold in buildings.
Following wooden furniture, had visible mold growth, or smells moldy is best just discarded, the only genera/species that may appear in a specific build ling or case. Further, the mold genera/species that grows on a particular surface depends primarily on its growth conditions, in particular moisture levels, and of course temperature, light exposure, and similar factors.
It is often the case that multiple mold genera/species are present on the same surface some molds may be growing parasitically on others, and the particular mold found at a particular spot on furniture’s surface may depend on the moisture level at that location.Link to top
Wood shavings below furniture usually mean some hungry insect is feeding, there are several insects that damage wood, and the damage they cause differs by region and climate.
Termites are often the first insect that comes to mind when people are dealing with wood damage. Termites leave wood shaving beneath furniture, but other evidence of infestation includes termite droppings and exit holes in the wood.
These small bugs build colonies inside of the wood and eat away at the wood fiber so the damage is usually not seen right away. By the time the damage is done, it’s pretty far along. They generally attack and infest softwood. Mud shelter tubes provide evidence of termite infestation. Although termite infestation can occur in numerous climates, they are especially active in tropical climates.Link to top
Carpenter ants are not always as damaging as termites, but if they are left to do damage for a long time they can accomplish a lot. They don’t eat the wood as some insects do, but they burrow in to build their home.
Evidence of carpenter ant infestation is the presence of wood shaving or frass beneath the furniture. The wood shavings will contain insect parts. Carpenter ants are reddish black and build their nests in cavities above the ground. The nests have no emergence holes, but the ants enter and exit the colony to forage for food and water.Link to top
Two powderpost beetles that damage wood are the Lyctid and Anobiid. It is the larvae of these beetles that bore into the wood and feed on starch. Both are small reddish brown to black insects, but they have several differences. The head of the Lyctid powderpost beetle is visible from above, but the head of the Anobiid is not. The Lyctid destroys mostly hardwoods such as flooring, furniture and cabinets the Anobiid destroys mostly softwood and is especially active in damp climates. Evidence of both is very fine powder. The Lyctid leaves dusty powder and the Anobiid leaves a powder that is gritty.Link to top
Round headed and flat headed wood borers are differentiated by the holes they make one circular to oval and the other flattened to oval. The wood shavings left by these insects are either powdery or gritty.
The round headed beetle has a distinct capsule shaped head, while the larvae of the flat headed beetle sometime have a flattened region behind the head. Both eat hard and soft woods. Neither of these beetles commonly infests old wood or wood that has already been infested, so the damage is limited to the first generation the next generation will move on to infest wood that has not yet been infested. The insects are also different in their appearances. The round headed beetle has long antennae and is colorful the flat headed beetle has metallic coloration.Link to top
