Cleaning Your Poly Rattan garden furniture.
When looking to clean your rattan garden furniture set, firstly sweep your set with a small dustpan brush so as to
remove the light dust and dirt. Then use good old fashioned hot soapy water. Combine this with a little elbow
grease and you should be able to clean the majority of garden dirt off your furniture.
You can use a normal cloth and rinse off by using a power or garden hose for ease or rinse off the soap suds with
a fresh bucket of water. The soap will easily come off as the rattan has many gaps for the water to escape
through. The rattan will soon dry in the sun or you could wipe it over with a dry dish cloth to remove any excess
liquid. Other than that there is very little maintenance required. As you no doubt know by now the rattan is both
color fast and rust resistant which means it can live outside all year round. So now just sit back and relax!
Possible effects of heat on you Poly Rattan garden furniture
If you imagine the sun light shining through a piece of glass you will realise that it can get rather hot on the rattan
below. We do use special toughened glass that does not magnify as much as normal glass but, nevertheless,
there is an element of heat being applied to the rattan. This heat can sometime slacken the rattan a little and
give the appearance that the rattan is sagging. Whilst the rattan is sagging a little, it soon returns to its normal
shape when the sun hides behind the clouds.
The best solution to this is to have your parasol up when the weather is very hot or when the sun is at its highest.
It does not seem to always happen but we have had a few cases where the rattan becomes a little wavy and then
returns to its normal shapes when it is not so hot. Having investigated this it is clear that this is very much the
norm in the rattan garden furniture industry and that a degree of movement is to be expected. It does not in any
way affect the solid structure of the furniture.
There are lots of plus points to using the all‐weather rattan for the manufacture of garden furniture and we feel
that this slight movement should not be considered a disadvantage. The reason the glass is on the top of the
table in the first place is to ensure a flat surface of your food and drinks as rattan always has some play in it.
So be assured you rattan garden furniture set is not affected permanently in any way and will continue to give
you years of excellent service.
