Taking proper care and maintenance of your outdoor furniture

By Celina Subscribe to RSS | February 23rd 2012 | Views:

Basically rattan is found in tropical regions of Asia, Australia and Africa, 70% of rattan comes from Indonesia also and if we talk about the largest producer of Rattan in the world then the name of Cirebon comes in my mind. Rattan is very famous material and first choice of all in case of outside furniture because of its so many features that we require specially for outdoor purpose. For keeping outside we need furniture that is durable, light in weight, flexible and weather resistance.

Other than making furniture, rattan is also used for making baskets canes, and many other things. Other than its strength, it looks beautiful and attractive also. Like in case of wooden furniture we can coat them with paints, varnish and other moisture resistance coats; rattan furniture’s also enables it. If we want to keep natural looking furniture in our home then we can keep it without getting it painted because without paint it gives natural color.

If you are really impressed with above mentioned features of rattan furniture then after buying it you should keep in your mind some points related to its maintenance. As it does not require much maintenance but a little bit of maintenance and care should be done of it to use it for a long time. First and foremost thing is that you should clean its surface on regular basis.

You might have known that rattan is a material that has a lot of crevices, so you may feel its cleaning as one of the difficult task because dirt often inserts in it crevices. You should use soft and wet cloth to wipe out its dirt. Vacuum cleaner can also be used for this purpose. To clean dirt or any stains from inside the crevices or small holes you can use toothbrush or any other small brush. Avoid using any harsh detergent.

Those who use rattan furniture as an outdoor furniture will have to take care of it more. It would be better if you keep it inside when there is much hot outside as it will make your furniture look fade. Same thing should be done in monsoon season to prevent mould.

It was all about regular cleaning and maintenance. At least in a year you should get it re varnished after washing it properly and then soaking it wither under sunlight or with dryer. It will ensure long life of your rattan furniture and make it look like new forever.
