Product Care and Maintenance

CLEANING AND CARE

Regular periodic care of your Patio furniture will maintain its appearance and functionality better than occasional, heavy duty maintenance. Consider the specific conditions and usage to which your product is exposed so appropriate maintenance is provided. Product failure caused by a lack of reasonable and necessary care and maintenance is not covered by the product warranty.

Painted Finishes are used on aluminum products. Periodically clean the finish with a sponge or soft bristle brush using a cleaning solution with 1/4 cup mild biodegradable liquid soap in a gallon of lukewarm water. Rinse thoroughly. Avoid using abrasive cleaners. For gloss finishes, we recommend periodic waxing of the frame with a high grade automotive liquid wax or the use of a commercially available protectant to help maintain and/or restore the luster of the finish. Protectants can be purchased at most casual furniture retailers. Caution: In seaside use, salt can accumulate on the finish, leading to finish failure. In indoor pool areas, chlorides can accumulate on the finish, leading to finish failure. In both environments, repeated cycles of condensation followed by evaporation cause build-up of these aggressive corrosives. Regular cleaning with mild biodegradable liquid soap and water will remove the concentrated deposits and protect the furniture finish per the above instructions.

Fabric. The life of your furniture fabric largely depends on its care. Clean all spills promptly. Fabric life can be extended by simply rinsing down the furniture regularly with water. Certain suntan and sun block products may permanently discolor any fabric. This possibility can be minimized by immediately cleaning after contact. In addition, storing the cushions when not in use will extend cushion life. Prepare a cleaning solution with 1/4 cup mild biodegradable liquid soap in a gallon of lukewarm water. Clean fabric with the solution using a sponge or soft bristle brush. Rinse thoroughly with clean water. Allow to air dry. Hint: Standing a cushion on its side will help it drain faster. Caution: Certain suntan and sun block products contain “PABA”. PABA is harmful to fabric and can permanently discolor it; therefore, contact with cushions or slings should be avoided. If contact is made, cleaning the fabric immediately with a non-abrasive, mild biodegradable soap and water solution followed by a fresh water rinse may minimize the possibility of discoloration. Laying a beach towel over the cushions or slings of outdoor furniture whenever you are using the furniture will prolong the fabric life. Do not use a bleach solution unless specifically listed as a cleaning agent for the specific fabric, such as for solution dyed acrylics. Do not submerse or allow cushions to lie in standing water. Do not put cushions into the dryer. Do not put cushions into the dryer. Do not use harsh detergents or stiff bristle brushes.  Do not use Pine Oil cleaners or abrasive household cleaners. Do not use heat or hot water. Mildew may form on dirt or other substances deposited upon the fabric. Regular cleaning of the furniture will help to prevent its forming. Apply mild biodegradable liquid soap to the affected area and allow to soak in. Scrub with a soft bristle brush, then rinse thoroughly. Repeat if necessary. For stubborn mildew stains, use a household mildew remover – test in an inconspicuous location first. FOLLOW THE MANUFACTURER’S
INSTRUCTIONS.  

Table Tops Acrylic Avoid build-up of grease and stains by washing regularly with a cleaning solution with 1/4 cup mild biodegradable liquid soap in a gallon of lukewarm water. Rinse thoroughly with clean water. Hint: Occasional use of a high grade automotive liquid wax will help keep the acrylic table looking new. Do not use window cleaners or products containing ammonia or solvents on acrylic tops. Do not use plastic covers over acrylic table tops.  The resulting heat accumulation may cause the acrylic to bow.
