Apart from being one of the most popular styles in outdoor furnishings, wicker maintenance is extremely easy. It is low maintenance, for a quick clean, simply hose or wipe down the furniture. If required a warm mild soapy solution can be used for a more thorough clean. All wicker is expertly hand woven onto a welded frame to create your perfect outdoor furniture piece. The wicker is also light weight so that the furniture is easy to move around for more functionality within your home. All Segals furniture has been manufactured using UV stabilized wicker (synthetic resin) for a prolonged outdoor lifespan. It is recommend that furniture is not left in direct sunlight/UV.
All Segal’s cushions are manufactured using a superior quality polyester fabric and fill. Cushions should be removed and stored away in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight when not in use. Cushions can be rotated to ensure even use. Spot clean fabric using mild soapy water. Leave to air dry out of direct sunlight. If required the complete cushion can be hand washed (do not machine wash) using a mild soapy solution, then air dried out of direct sunlight/ UV. We do not recommend removing covers for cleaning. For added protection against staining we recommend Guardsman Weather Defense fabric protector, available in a spray can in store at Segals.
Aluminum Chair and Table Frames
Aluminum is a durable and weatherproof metal for outdoor use. It will not rust and is lightweight for ease of moving. It is low maintenance, for a quick clean, simply wipe down the furniture. If required a warm mild soapy solution can be used for a more through clean.
Recycled teak tables are made from 100% recycled teak. Each table is unique and will vary from the display model or pictures, this adds to the rustic feel. All will have putty filler covering removed nails and some patched panels.
Teak has naturally high oil content. Over time this oil rises to the surface and creates a “graying” effect (patina) and contours in the grain of the timber. We recommend a regular clean with warm soapy water to remove surface dirt, and a good coating of Bio Polish. Bio Polish (purchased from Segals) is a combination of linseed, beeswax and natural vegetable oils. It can be used on teak to enhance the natural color. It also helps to prevent staining and patina.
As the timber dries out it may crack. This perfectly normal and is part of the aging process of the Teak. This does not affect the integrity of your furniture.
Stainless steel adds a sleek modern feel to any backyard. It is also extremely durable, with regular maintenance. As stainless steel is not totally impervious to corrosion so we recommend regular cleaning with mild soap and water to prevent stubborn build up. If near coastal areas this maintenance will be required more often. If stubborn build up occurs (tea staining) use a non abrasive stainless steel surface cleaner to rejuvenate goods.
All of our products have been manufactured using quality products and materials. You owe a duty of care in looking after your outdoor furniture as Australia has the most severe UV light in the world. This is the major cause of damage to your new furniture. To protect your outdoor furniture and keep it looking beautiful we strongly recommend using outdoor protective covers when not in use. Segals have a large range of outdoor covers to suit almost all settings.
Regular maintenance will prolong the life of the furniture. If you need any further advice on the care of your product please don’t hesitate to contact one of our helpful staff in store or you can email via our contact us page, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
