Care and Maintenance of Poly-Wood Outdoor Patio Furniture
Recycled Plastic, All Weather Outdoor Patio Furniture
Care for your all weather Poly-Wood recycled plastic outdoor patio furniture is easy! All you need is a sponge or soft bristle brush and gentle soap and warm water. Make it even easier by using a high pressure washer (do not to exceed 1,500 psi). If needed, use a 1/3 bleach and 2/3 water solution to remove stubborn stains without damaging the color.
Hardware Specifications and Maintenance
The hardware used in the assembly and construction of your poly wood furniture is an 18-8 commercial grade stainless steel that has an additional "Xylan" protective and cosmetic coating. Although the hardware is highly resistant of corrosives, salt can corrode the hardware over time if the air is particularly salty, so be sure to wash the hardware too. If necessary, use a soft tooth brush to scrub the corroding areas of the hardware. We recommend the use of touch up paint in the appropriate color to protect polywood hardware if you see any corrosion beginning to set in. Appliance touch up paint can be purchased at local hardware stores.
Sunbrella fabrics should be cleaned regularly to prevent dirt and food particles from accumulating. Regular cleaning of your outdoor cushions will eliminate the need for more frequent vigorous cleanings.
