Maintaining Rattan Garden Furniture

The rattan furniture we have here at Gardencentreshopping is 100% weatherproof, so you don't have to maintain it at all. However, to keep it clean and looking fresh, you can wipe down the rattan to keep it clean, you can even jet wash the rattan to get out all of the little bits of dirt, without damaging the weave at all. The is the same for our reclining garden furniture range, also made from premium rattan weave.

Rattan dining sets are a great addition to your garden, allowing you to dine alfresco, while our range of rattan sofa sets online helps you relax outside in style.

Maintaining Hardwood Garden Furniture

 

Hardwood garden furniture requires slightly more maintaining than other materials. You must regularly, every 3-6 weeks in the summer, 5-8 weeks during the winter storage, wipe down and teak oil the entire piece of furniture. Now this can be sped up in a few different ways. We advise using a plastic spray bottle, and fill it with teak oil, this can make the application of your oil muhc more efficient, and help get into all of the tiny gaps that occur in wooden furniture. Then using a cloth, wipe down every surface of the set, trying to spread it evenly.

 

Maintaining Aluminium Garden Furniture

 

Aluminium furniture is similar to rattan as you do not need to maintain it at all. It will not rust because of the way aluminium works, and the plastic around the edge has been synthetically treated to prevent it fading or rotting in the sunlight. You can also jet wash this type of furniture to keep it clean. This make for a fantastic all weather set.
