Cedar Closet Benefits – Durable, Beautiful, Low Maintenance, Affordable and Natural Pest Repellent

There are many cedar closet benefits, both in terms of aesthetics and practicality. There is a pleasant scent that emanates from cedar wood. The oils in the wood are also a natural insect repellent. Cedar is often used for moth control for this very reason. It can also deter silverfish and cockroaches. Cedar lined closets have a unique appearance and are very customizable. You can:

  • Stain the wood which will enhance the natural beauty
  • Use varnish to create a glossy look
  • Carve to add dimension
  • Brand or burn certain areas to create an artistic design
  • Paint the wood, though that takes away from the natural beauty

Locally Sourced Red Cedarwood – Sustainable and Environmentally Friendly

At Surrey Cedar, our red cedarwood is locally sourced. Our cedar is high quality, durable and beautiful. Did you know that cedar wood is also environmentally sustainable and considered to be a green building product? Wood is a natural and biodegradable product and it requires minimal processing before it is ready for use. When used as a building material,  indoors and outdoors, cedar is very low-maintenance, low-cost and has a long life expectancy.

Pest Protection and Cedar – Cedar Closet Benefits are Numerous

As previously mentioned, cedar oil provides protection against moths, silverfish and cockroaches. A cedar wood lined closet is also vastly superior to keeping insects away when compared to most other types of wood, or synthetic materials such as drywall. The best way to stop pests is to prevent them.

Cedar oil is non-toxic to humans and most pets, whereas most other pest control products can cause harm. Protecting your clothes and space from pests will save a ton of money, time, effort, stress and lost sleep. This is especially true where silverfish and cockroaches are concerned as these can be a major health hazard. Prevention is always the best route.
