Regular Maintenance
Wash the furniture with a solution of mild detergent
and water, rinse with clear water, and dry thoroughly.
To all metal frames, apply a fine, clear automobile wax
for maximum protection against harmful ultraviolet
exposure and salt air.
For best protection, perform this maintenance two or
three times per year in low pollution areas or more
frequently in high pollution areas. Please note that
these durable materials can be safely cleaned as often
as desired. Note: Some suntan and sun block products
may be harmful to resin, cushions and strap, mesh
and vinyl lace and strap. Do not allow such products
to come in contact with any seating surfaces to avoid
deep penetrating stains, which are not covered under
warranty.
How to Clean & Care for Teak Furnishings
Left alone to age, the natural color of teak furnishings
will weather to a soft, silver grey. This process will take
approximately nine months, depending on the degree
of sunlight and rain exposure. Imperfections, which
are inherent properties of the wood, will show over
time, enhancing the beauty of the furniture. In humid
or wet climates, or after rains, the wood may naturally
expand and contract, causing the grain to rise. This is
to be expected with exposure to the elements and will
stabilize after the initial weathering occurs.
To maintain teak furnishings, use a soft bristled utility
brush and stroke lightly in the direction of the grain
to remove surface dust. For more stubborn dirt, the
wood may be washed with a mild solution of four parts
laundry detergent or dish washing soap to one part
bleach in water, then rinsed thoroughly and allowed to
dry completely. Oiling the wood may cause mildew or
irregular coloring.
How to Clean Brass Furnishings
Brass will naturally patina to a reddish-brown or
greenish-blue finish, depending on local conditions.
This is a natural process of the material. To restore
the satin finish, polish the length of the frame with a
non-woven, non-abrasive pad. Be careful to keep any
cleaner from contact with the seating material, as it may
cause discoloration.
How to Clean Woven Furnishings
Woven furnishings are made of durable and
weatherproof extruded polyethylene resinweave. Light
stains and soils may be removed with a solution of mild
detergent and water, rinsed with clear water and dried
thoroughly. Mildew and heavy stains can be removed
with a quality commercial outdoor furniture cleaner and
protectant. Woven furnishings may not be suitable for
intensely hot climates.
How to Clean Fabric
Fine outdoor fabrics are designed to endure years of
sun, soil and moisture. Wash outdoor cushions with
a solution of mild detergent and water and thoroughly
rinse with clear water. Stand cushions on end and allow
to air dry completely. Light stains can be removed as
above. Mildew and heavy stains can be removed with
a quality commercial outdoor furniture cleaner and
protectant. Note: Do not dry clean or use a washing
machine or dryer. Do not steam or use water at
temperatures above 100º F when washing. Note: Be
careful to keep the outdoor furniture cleaner from
contact with the cushions of your outdoor furniture, as
it will cause discoloration. Do not use bleach on printed
acrylic fabrics. Do not use solvent-type materials on
woven vinyl, woven blend or ultra woven blend fabrics
as they will damage the yarns. Do not use chlorine
based cleaners.
How to Clean Mesh
Remove light stains with a solution of mild detergent
and water, then rinse with clear water and dry
thoroughly.
Mildew and heavy stains can be removed
with a quality commercial outdoor furniture cleaner
and protectant.
How to Clean Strap
For general or light cleaning, begin by brushing dirt off
the strap. Apply a solution of mild detergent and warm
water and allow it to soak into the strap. Gently clean
with a sponge or soft bristle brush, then rinse thoroughly
with clear water and allow the strap to air dry.
How to Clean Vinyl Strap
Apply a quality vinyl protectant to guard against the
effects of air pollution, salt air build-up, and mildew. To
remove difficult stains use rubbing alcohol applied with
a soft cloth.
How to Clean & Care for Stone and Marble Tops
Tabletops are designed for normal outdoor use in
residential settings. To maintain the natural beauty we
recommend applying a stone-enhancing sealer every
six months to protect and restore the top. This step can
be repeated each year and before the winter season.
If tabletop is stained with products such as wine, soda,
coffee, or other colorants of organic origin, clean these
spills immediately with a mild detergent then rinse with
water. In extreme cold climates, it is recommended that
tabletops be stored in a dry indoor area or be covered
with
suitable outdoor furniture cover. Be sure to allow
space between the tabletop and the cover so that
moisture does not collect on the table; this will
promote airflow and allow moisture to escape.
Winter Storage
During winter, all furniture should be stored indoors in
an upright position to allow for proper water drainage.
Storing furniture upside down may cause water to
accumulate and freeze inside the frame, causing
serious structural damage that is not covered by this
warranty.
Care & Maintenance
Outdoor furniture can be enjoyed for many years when well maintained.
