How Often Should I Clean Garden Furniture?

You have to make sure that you clean your furniture regularly. You can do it weekly, or even monthly to keep the furniture’s original beauty.

How Do I Clean My Artificial Rattan Furniture?

For cleaning, you can dilute a drop of fairy liquid in lukewarm water then clean the surface of the Rattan. Make sure to rinse with cold water afterwards as well.  If needed, with a small brush also go into the curves and corners to thoroughly clean it.
Never, ever use a bleaching agent or an all purpose cleaner to clean your Artificial Rattan furniture.  It that will lead to the furniture losing its colour.  You can learn more about the material used in artificial rattan here.

Can I Keep My Rattan Garden Set Out All Year?

Although Rattan garden furniture, including our own, is totally weather proof.   We don’t recommend our customers to keep it out in severe winters. If left out the threads may snap as they become less flexible in the cold.
If the furniture needs to stay outdoors we advise that you purchase a cover for protection.

Can I Jet Wash My Rattan Furniture?

Yes.  We suggest you get wash the furniture at the start and end of the summer season.  The power of the jet wash will force out any trapped dirt and dust.
Make sure that the jet wash is on a low setting or use a low pressure attachment.  Don't get to close to the rattan when spraying.  If the jet is to strong you could snap the rattan threads.
Doing a full clean like this every year will keep your maintenance throughout the summer to a minimum.

Maintaining My Rattan Furniture Cushions?

Don’t clean the cushions too often. Only clean them when it is actually necessary.  If you’re keeping it outdoors, make sure to bring the cushions in if not in use. Keep the cushions covered, and provide special care for them, as they are more susceptible to wear and tear.

Other Cleaning Methods

You can use a vacuum cleaner to remove dirt from rattan garden furniture. Go all over the surface, as this will suck out the dirt that will gather while being outside .
