Outdoor Furniture - Care Instructions
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Fine outdoor furniture deserves exceptional care. Furniture can be enjoyed for many years when well maintained.
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, Suncloth cushions, Versatex 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
TEAK - 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 dishwashing 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 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 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 stain can be removed with a quality commercial outdoor furniture cleaner and protectant.
HOW TO CLEAN VERSATEX 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 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: Be careful to keep the cleaner from contact with the cushions of your Brown Jordan furniture, as it will cause discolouration. 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 & CARE FOR STONE AND MARBLE TOPS
To maintain the natural beauty of your tabletop we recommend applying a stone-enhancing sealer or car wax every six months to protect and restore the top.
If the 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.
