Protecting the feet on rattan furniture will ensure your furniture’s preservation. It is important to maintain the feet on rattan furniutre if you are using the furniture on grassy areas. As the natural cane frame will take in any damp in the lawn. This can then lead to mould and in the worst-case splitting of the frame.

If you are planning on using the furniture indoor, you need to ensure the room is aired frequently. This will avoid any swelling or splits in the furniture.

Another way to protect the feet of your furniture would be to use a rubber guard. This will only allow a certain amount of swelling from the furniture. Similarly this will stop any hard bangs that may cause the material to split. The network have also stated this as a way to lengthen your furniture lifespan. View their page here.

As with any furniture, you should ensure you are lifting the sets rather than dragging. Doing this will help to keep the furniture in a pristine condition. Constant pressure is also applied on the joint when dragging, which could eventually become weakened.
