Caring For Your Furniture

CARING FOR YOUR OAKITA RATTAN GARDEN FURNITURE

Our rattan garden furniture is so easy to care for, simply wash down and allow to dry naturally - that's it! There is no need to cover your rattan furniture outdoors, however we do offer free non waterproof furniture covers whilst stocks last to keep them clean and free from debris - ready to use for fuss free garden life.

Whilst our rattan is suitable for all year round, all weather outdoor use our cushions are generously thick and will not dry out quickly if allowed to get wet, therefore cushions should always be stored indoors when not required. Our cushion covers are both removable and washable on a 30 degree wash and should be allowed to dry naturally. The UKFR nature of the cushions makes our rattan furniture suitable for indoor use and conforms to all UK fire regulations making it also perfect for the conservatory, pool house or garden room.

All of our dining table glass is 8mm thick and our coffee/side table glass is 5mm thick. This is more generous than the average high street options and therefore will require at least two people to handle when attaching dining table legs or moving to clean. All of our glass is tempered safety glass which is specifically designed to break as safely as possible in the unfortunate event that it is damaged during use.

RATTAN & TEXTILENE® MAINTENANCE - Follow these simple steps: 

  • Brush off loose dirt 

  • Hose down 

  • Prepare a cleaning mixture of water and mild, natural soap (no detergents) 

  • Use a soft bristle brush to clean 

  • Allow soap to soak in 

  • Rinse thoroughly 

  • Air dry. 

  • PREVENTION - One of the best ways to keep & Textilene® fabrics looking good and to delay the need for deep or vigorous cleanings is to hose the fabric off on a monthly basis with clear water. This practice will help eliminate the need for more frequent vigorous cleanings. In most environments, a thorough cleaning will be needed every two to three years. 

Safety: All garden parasols, regardless of size should be stored lowered when not required and should not be used unsupervised or in windy conditions.

CARING FOR YOUR OAKITA OAK FURNITURE

Natural materials will respond to their environment and it is usual for wood to expand and contract depending on the temperature and humidity found within a modern home. Our oak furniture is designed with 'expansion gaps' to facilitate this natural movement and therefore you can expect to see widening and narrowing of these depending on the time of year and the condition of your home (for example when switching on/off your heating). The beauty of real wood means that grains, knots and colouring can be uneven - you will not find the uniformity of appearance that you would expect from a man-made material and whilst all of our wood furniture is lacquered or waxed to protect it as much as is practically possible from the effects of moisture and despite using only the highest quality materials and finishes, it is impossible to create the same level of protection as you would get with a man-made product. 

Furniture with a lacquered finish has a polyurethane top coat to provide protection and a semi-matt seal to the wood. The wood can still 'breathe' as this is only applied to the outer facing surfaces. The lacquer helps to protect the wood from liquid and heat damage although it is still advisable to use mats where possible and to mop up any spills as soon as they happen. Constant water or excessive heat will wear down the lacquer resulting in a dull or mottled appearance. Lacquered wood should be wiped down with a clean, damp cloth and immediately dried off. it can be dusted with a soft cloth and should be treated periodically with a good quality furniture polish.

Furniture with a wax finish is not sealed and can quickly take on elements such as liquid or heat. Rings will occur if protective mats are not used and spills will be absorbed by the wood. These products require periodical re-waxing with a good quality clear wax which will help to keep the wood hydrated, prevent splits and to keep the natural colour of the wood maintained.
