The frames of our furniture is made of aluminum and will not rust. With minimal work, you can ensure the furniture stays in pristine condition for years to come.
Cleaning is done to remove dirt and / or stains and to retain the decorative appearance of the surface. In general, cleaning is recommended every 6 months, but in heavily exposed areas the frequency should be increased, depending on the stresses to which the surfaces are exposed. We recommend using our Alu Kit, which contains everything you need for washing and cleaning our metal frames. The products in this kit have been carefully developed and tested to avoid damaging the paint on our furniture. Alternatively, dirt and stains can normally be removed with mild soapy water. Do not use cleaning products that contain abrasives or solvents, as these may have an adverse effect on the coating. Use a neutral detergent with a pH in the range of 5 – 8. Remember to rinse well after cleaning so that no residue is left on the surface of the furniture.
The furniture can be left outside all year round, but we recommend that they are under cover during the winter, especially if in a snowy environment. The most important thing is to let the furniture breathe, so do not cover with tarps or similar. Extra cleaning must be expected in the spring if the furniture has been outside all winter.
In order for the fabric in the pillows to maintain its structure and its soft surface, they should be washed regularly. Dirt and grime from our surroundings will build up in the textile, and this is not to be avoided outdoors. We recommend the use of our Fabric Kit, which is designed and tested to not damage our fabrics. Alternatively, a mild soapy water may be used in combination with a sponge or soft brush. Rinse well with clean running water and make sure all detergent is cleaned off before finishing the rinse process. Allow product to air dry.
The cushions should be stored in a dry and well ventilated environment.
Teak is a living material and will contract or expand at temperature fluctuations. This can cause minor cracks in the wood and is quite normal. The quality does not deteriorate.
If necessary, wash with a cloth or sponge and clean water. After exposure to sunlight, teak will eventually turn a silver gray patina. If you want to keep the golden color, you can use teak sealer. Treatment with sealer will also reduce the chance of fracture. If the teak has already turned gray, it should first be cleaned with a suitable teak cleaner before applying the sealer.
During the winter months, the teak should be kept cool and ventilated. We do not recommend covering with tarps and other dense materials.
