Teak is a timeless, low maintenance option for all outdoor furniture.
Teak has naturally high oil content. Over time this oil rises to the surface and creates a “greying” effect (patina) and contours in the grain of the timber. We recommend a regular clean with warm soapy water to remove surface dirt. As the timber dries out it may crack. This is perfectly normal and is part of the aging process of the Teak. Bio Polish (purchased from Segals) is a combination of linseed, beeswax and natural vegetable oils. We recommend it be used regularly to enhance the natural colour and help prevent staining and patina.
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.
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.
