Care and Maintenance Instructions

 

Wood is a natural product and its appearance will deteriorate when left exposed to the elements. Before leaving your outdoor furniture in your garden please make sure you have applied a relevant wood preserving treatment. The finish you have chosen for your outdoor furniture should be regularly maintained to ensure the wood is protected from moisture and so the furniture continues to look its best.


Regular maintenance by using the following methods below will help prolong the life of your outdoor furniture:

 

  • We recommend that all seasonal outdoor furniture is covered and stored in a dry location during varying weather conditions and during the winter period.
  • Please apply wood treatment before first using your outdoor furniture and then at regular intervals.
  • Please ensure wood treatment is applied before and after any period in storage.
  • It is vital to coat all surfaces, including hidden surfaces of the furniture by applying a recommended wood treatment. Please follow instructions on the product you have chosen.
  • Please follow the cleaning instructions on any fabric of your outdoor furniture.
  • If your item has any folding mechanisms, take care when opening. Keep hands away from folding mechanism and children should be supervised at all times.
