With summer gone and cooler weather on the horizon, it's important to make sure outdoor patio furniture is cared for properly to be just like new come spring. See below for tips on cleaning and storing your patio furniture to keep it in tip-top shape.
Cleaning: Use mild soap and warm water. Do not use abrasive materials, cleansers or bleach products. Rinse with clean water and dry thoroughly. Drain any water accumulated inside the frames by removing the adjuster glides or foot caps from the bottom of the legs.
WARNING: Water allowed to accumulate inside the frames and then exposed to freezing temperatures can cause damage to the frames. Such damage is not covered under warranty.
Always clean, drain and dry thoroughly before storing for the winter. Maintain glossy finishes by applying a coat of high quality auto wax after cleaning.
Cleaning: Wipe minor spills immediately. Clean with mild soap, warm water and soft cloth. Although the fabric has been treated to resist stains, over time it may be necessary to use stain removers. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
Maintenance: The best way to maintain the beauty of your furniture is to store them in a dry area out of extreme temperatures or severe weather. If your furniture is being used in areas where birds and trees are plentiful, covering your furniture is especially recommended.
