Care & Maintenance

Poly Furniture lumber is made of durable HDPE plastic resin material which has been purified and UV protected to protect from the harshest elements.

The care of your Poly Furniture will vary depending on your location.  The most widely used method is soap and warm water with a soft bristle brush. For more stubborn areas and harder stains, use a 1/3 bleach and 2/3 water solution which can be used on the product without affecting the color.  Another popular method of cleaning poly lumber is using a high pressure power wash. Do not exeed 1,500 psi, which is the equivalent pressure of a car wash. The surface characteristics of the product may require the use of a soft bristle brush to get into the creases.

Hardware Care

The hardware used in the assembly and construction of poly furniture differs from manufacturer to manufacturer. Although most of the hardware used has a high level of ccorrosive resistance, the hardware can show some signs of corrosion over time especially in coastline and salt air environments. A helpful solution when signs of corrosion are apparent would be to wash the product with soap and water using a smaller brush (for example; a toothbush) to scrub the corroding areas of the hardware.  Allow the clean area to dry and then apply a hardware sealant or hardware touch up paint in the appropriate color to protect the hardware from future corrosion.

Cushion Care

For the best year-round performance in outdoor setting, most cushions are made from Sunbrella fabrics. The fabric should be cleaned reularly before food and dirt particles are allowed to accumulate. This will eliminate the need for more deep cleanings.

After brushing off any loose dirt, use a sponge or soft bristle brush to clean fabric with a solution of 1/4 cup mild soap per gallon of lukewarm water. Rinse thoroughly with clean water and allow the fabric to air dry.

Do not use a steamer or iron set. Outdoor fabrics air dry very quickly and machine drying is not recommended.
