Care & Maintenance

To protect and prolong the finish, occasional cleaning with a soft damp cloth is recommended to remove dirt and contaminants. Apply a quality exterior grade clear wax to entire surface. Follow wax manufacturer's instructions. This application of a quality, clear wax once or twice a year will prolong and preserve the finish. Exposure to various weather conditions may require additional cleaning with a mild, non-abrasive detergent and rinsing with clean water, and an additional wax coating application. Nicks and scratches should be touched-up to prevent any moisture penetration. Clean area. Use a quality grade paint. Apply exterior grade metal primer, followed by finish color; follow paint manufacturer's instructions.

Sunbrella® Fabric Care & Cleaning

Sunbrella® fabric should be cleaned regularly before substances such as dirt, roof particles, etc., are allowed to accumulate and become embedded in the fabric. The fabric can be cleaned without being removed from the frame. Simply brush off any loose dirt, roof particles, etc.; hose down and clean with a mild soap in lukewarm water (no more than 100°F). Rinse thoroughly to remove soap. DO NOT USE DETERGENTS! For stubborn stains, soak the fabric for approximately 20 minutes in a solution of not more than ½ cup (4 oz.) of bleach and ¼ cup (2 oz.) mild soap per gallon of water at approximately 100°F. Non-chlorine bleach is recommended for Sunbrella® Plus because of the urethane coating. Rinse thoroughly in cold water to remove all of the soap. Note: Excessive soaking in bleach can deteriorate sewing threads. This method of cleaning may remove part of the water repellency. If water repellency is a factor, the fabric should receive an application of an air-curing water repellent treatment. Sunbrella® may be dry cleaned but a water repellent treatment must be applied to the fabric after dry cleaning to reestablish water repellency. Sunbrella® is made from 100% acrylic fiber and is thermoplastic or heat sensitive. When washing or cleaning, DO NOT SUBJECT TO EXCESSIVE HEAT as the fabric will shrink. DO NOT STEAM PRESS OR DRY IN ELECTRIC OR GAS DRYERS, but allow to air dry.
