Aluminium & Rattan Care Instructions

Remove any decorative cushions or furniture accessories before cleaning since they will require a separate process to remove any stains or mildew growth. Use a garden hose with a spray or “rain” setting to remove the largest pieces of dirt and debris from the metal. Avoid using a pressure washer or a strong setting on a garden hose nozzle as a strong and focused stream of water could damage the furniture’s finish.

After spraying the furniture off, fill a bucket with mild dish detergent and water. Using soft cloths and a soft brush, go over each piece of furniture and remove any remaining sediment. Pay special attention to the underside of the furniture and joints.

Our Synthetic Rattan collection should also be cleaned using Guardsman fabric protector. To ensure the longevity of your investment we recommend taking advantage of our commercial grade polyester furniture covers with PVC lining available instore or onlineThis will enhance the finish of your item and ensure that it is protected against the harsh elements.

Polywood Care Instructions

For regular cleaning, simply wash the product with soap and water.  Just fill a bucket with a soap and water solution and wipe the polywood with a wash cloth or sponge.  If there are smudges or marks on the product from regular use, they may take some scrubbing to disappear completely.  If the wash cloth or sponge does not work, rub a bristle brush along the surface to remove stubborn dirt particles and other debris.  Complete the general cleaning process by rinsing the furniture with a hose until no soap residue if left.

Furniture care for Kubu.

  1. Fill a bowl with water. Add a few drops of dish detergent and stir to agitate until bubbles form on the surface.
  2. Dip a soft cloth into the bubbles only, not into the water.
  3. Wipe the rattan with the bubbles. The slight moisture cleans without over-wetting the rattan, which can cause damage.
  4. Use a toothbrush or other soft brush to clean in the cracks and crevices, using the same suds-only cleaning method.
  5. Repeat weekly for best results.

 Teak and Mixed Hardwoods Care Instructions

Teak and Mixed Hardwood furniture does not require a special maintenance routine or any additional protection apart from occasional cleaning. If left to age naturally outside, Teak will gradually change to a soft, silver-grey as the pigments in the surface layer of the wood begin to fade away. We recommend that you allow your teak furniture to weather naturally this way and simply clean thoroughly once or twice a year with a Teak cleaning product such as Guardsman's Wood Protector.  Teak furniture may also benefit from an occasional light sanding to remove any raised grain and restore a smooth finish to the surface.  Under no circumstances should a high pressure hose be used to clean Teak furniture. Application of Teak Sealer will not affect the strength or longevity of the furniture in any way, just its appearance. Teak sealers such as Bondall’s Monocel Gold – Teak Marine Grade Stain and Varnish (available from any home improvement store) provides maximum exterior durability and colour retention, whilst withstanding the harshest of Australian conditions. All products should be used at your own risk and manufacturer’s warranties and terms of use apply.
