Wood and the Elements

Did you know that wood is ALIVE?!? Wood is living, not breathing necessarily but it’s organic and the elements can very easily damage it. How you might ask? Water, sunlight and lack of moisture; yes wood is rather delicate and should be treated with care.

First off, water. It’s wood’s natural (and worst) enemy! Wood contains cells that absorb water, which can cause it to warp and its finish to crack. Furthermore, the adhesives can loosen and become a host for fungi that cause dry rot! Secondly, sunlight and lack of moisture both of these enemies cause wood cells to lose moisture and collapse. When those cells collapse it causes splintering, shrinking, color fading, splitting, and bubbling (yes, wood can bubble)!

Luckily, for all these elemental enemies there’s Liquid Gold to help wood “fight” back! You can use it to maintain wood’s moisture balance, and restore and preserve its beauty. It really is “Liquid Gold”.

Man, it’s a HOT one!

Here in Denver, CO it has been one hot, hot summer! Temperatures have been breaking more records than Michael Phelps at the 2008 Olympics! Working in this sweltering heat has not been easy but at Scott’s Liquid Gold we’ve managed to soldier on albeit without air conditioning. No, we are not obsessive workaholics and yes we do make time for fun. Enter our impromptu company ice cream party complete with an ice cream truck! There really isn’t anything better than ice cream on a hot summer day, especially in the middle of a workday. Check out the pictures below to see just how much fun it was. Jealous yet?
