When it comes to the aesthetics and durability of your garden furniture, effective cleaning plays a pivotal role. Maintaining your outdoor pieces ensures their longevity and keeps them looking new and inviting for years. With your furniture being outside, it will come as no surprise that it will likely suffer from bird droppings, dust and dirt, and fallen debris, which is why even the highest quality furniture pieces need to be cleaned now and then.
In this blog post, we are going to cover all the care and maintenance tips you need to keep your Lifestyle Garden furniture in tip-top condition. From a simple wipe-down to removing stubborn stains, we have got the expertise and knowledge to ensure your furniture lasts. Having said that, the furniture by Lifestyle Garden requires minimal maintenance due to the durability and high standard of their materials, however, a little spruce-up will never go amiss!
All the collections by Lifestyle Garden are crafted out of innovative materials that require their own maintenance and care instructions. Below we have given a brief overview of how to clean each material.
The DuraOcean furniture is manufactured out of recycled plastic material and mixed with resin and other resources which are all REACH compliant. Due to the nature of the material, DuraOcean pieces can easily be cleaned with soap and warm water.
Hardwood FSC-certified Eucalyptus
Naturally, hardwood materials do tend to show some flaws after some time, however, the Lifestyle Garden pieces have been treated with Duragrain to provide additional protection. If your hardwood furniture is going to be kept outside all year long, Lifestyle Garden suggest cleaning it every 6 months and applying their wood sealer and protector to keep it looking as good as new.
To remove stains and dirt, simply use a brush or cloth to wipe down the surface.
AluPrint is Lifestyle Garden’s patented aluminium finish, that can be printed onto metal to give it more dimension and a higher-quality look. It is incredibly weather-resistant and only needs to be cleaned with soap and water.
Lifestyle Garden’s artificial wicker is manufactured out of 100% recyclable materials, made from raw polyethylene that can withstand heavy usage. As a result of its composition, Petan requires little to no maintenance at all, making it great for families and people with limited time to spare! You can simply wipe it down before it is going to be used.
Similar to the Eucalyptus hardwood, their Teak furniture pieces may alter through the natural course of aging. If you appreciate the look of aged furniture, you can leave teak untreated, which will cause it to change colour over time to give it more character. However, to maintain its golden-brown appearance you can apply a wood sealer or protector. When applied yearly, you can help to protect the material from all weather conditions.
Weather-net is crafted out of polyester yarn, and as the name might suggest, is resistant to all weather elements. Due to this, their Weather-net material requires minimal maintenance!
Lifestyle Garden’s Duresin is manufactured out of 100% virgin polypropylene without fibreglass. When the material is crafted into the final furniture product, is it extremely durable and UV resistant, requiring little to no maintenance.
DuraBoard is created out of FSC eucalyptus sawdust and polyethylene resin, designed to be durable and weather resistant. DuraBoard furniture pieces can be kept outside all through summer to winter, only necessitating a quick wipe down whenever you need.
