Caring for your rattan furniture cushions.
If you use seat covers and cushions on your rattan furniture, make sure to regularly wash them to keep them in a good condition. It is also advised that you keep the cushions and seating covers inside when you are not using them. Our cushions are easily removed as they are zipped for ease of use. Use your normal household products such as vanish for stain removal on cushion covers.
Removing stains and mould from your furniture. It is important to avoid spilling anything on your rattan dining sets when eating alfresco. That said it is inevitable that spillages will happen and the good news is that all weather rattan can be easily wiped clean. If you do accidentally spill something on your natural rattan furniture, take care of it as soon as possible to avoid the liquid soaking into your furniture and staining it. If you do notice stains on your furniture or mildew (brown mould spots that do not come off with soap and water) try mixing a solution of bleach and water together. You will need to scrub your furniture, but be careful not to damage the weave. If this doesn't work, you may need to drip a Q-tip in bleach and apply it directly to the stains.
Repairing rattan furniture.
Extreme heat and direct sunlight can cause traditional rattan furniture to split and crack. The best way to avoid this is to keep you natural rattan furniture in a protected and shaded area. If you notice that this has already happened to your furniture, you can try using boiled linseed oil to repair it. Always buy boiled linseed oil from your local DIY store. Do not try boiling linseed oil yourself, as it is highly flammable. Apply a thin layer of the oil to your furniture and wait for it to dry. You can then re-apply more layers, buffing your furniture with a cloth and letting it dry in between.
Stop when you start to notice the oil is not sinking into the furniture as it was in the beginning. Thats when you will have applied enough of it. Whilst the boiled linseed oil will not actually fill in the cracks and splits, it will moisten the rattan and cause it to expand. Thus making the damage less noticeable. It also provides a shiny finish that will add to the furniture's stylish aesthetics. If you notice the weaving on your furniture is looking a little loose, you may be able to gently put it back in place with your fingers. One of the best ways to avoid loosening the weave of your furniture is to avoid using it when it is damp. If you sit on your rattan chairs before they are fully dry, the weight of your body can cause the seats to sag.
Using boiled linseed oil on your furniture can help to soften the rattan, preventing further cracking. It will also cause the rattan to expand which will help to disguise any existing cracks and splits in the weaves. In worst-case scenarios, you can have your furniture repaired by professionals. However you have to consider the costs. Would it be cheaper to have your garden furniture repaired or would it be more cost effective to buy a new set?
