Avoid direct exposure to sunlight: Any materials used to make the TV stand are afraid of direct sunlight because it is the cause of peeling, fading or cracking. Therefore, besides paying attention to humidity, you also need to pay attention to this issue. Ideally, the TV stand should be located a certain distance away from the window and using curtains to avoid light and high temperatures from the environment.
Regular cleaning of the TV stand not only increases the aesthetics but also prevents fungus and mold infestation (particularly in wood). Cleaning the TV stand is a fairly simple and fast process. You only need to use a soft cloth to wipe away the dust on the surface, then use a wet towel to wipe once to Stand more glossy and beautiful.
