How To Clean Outdoor furniture?

All our outdoor furniture has undergone testing and quality assurance processes to ensure it can withstand the outdoor climate, but it is still recommended to store it undercover. With the harsh Australian weather, this will preserve it for longer and increase the amount of years you get out of your pieces.

Preservative Maintenance:

  • Store your outdoor furniture in a dry and shaded area when not in use or during periods of inclement weather
  • Canvas, painted metal or timber furniture should be stored undercover after use
  • Timber furniture will naturally expand and contract due to changes in humidity and temperature. This can cause timber to split and/ or fade in colour when left exposed to outdoor elements, which is a natural occurrence and should not be considered as a fault.

General Care Instructions:

  • Furniture made from polyester, synthetic wicker and aluminium can be washed down with warm soapy water and left to dry naturally
  • Clean and treat timber furniture regularly to maintain its integrity
  • Clean the entire surface of upholstered pieces, from seam to seam, to avoid water rings and stains.

Do not:

  • Leave furniture uncovered in direct sunlight for extended periods of time as it may cause warping or splitting under the heat
  • Leave furniture outside during periods of inclement weather (e.g. storms or extremely hot weather)
  • Scrub, use hard bristle brushes or other abrasive cleaning methods when cleaning upholstered pieces
  • Fold furniture when wet as it will get mouldy or rusty

What is Rattan?

Rattan is the skin and stems of the rattan plant which are stripped and manufactured to create the beautiful furniture we know today. 

Rattan is native to tropical regions of Asia, Australia and Africa, mainly Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia.

Rattan has exploded in popularity in the last decade as it is incredibly versatile, durable and naturally resistant to the elements. This makes it perfect for outdoor and indoor furniture in the harsh Australian climate.
