CARE + MAINTENANCE

POWDER COATED ALUMINUM

CHARACTERISTICS

• Our metal furniture is handcrafted from extruded and cast aluminum elements.

• The aluminum is baked with a durable polyester powdercoat.

• To make the joints strong, the frames are assembled with precision welds and strengthened stress points.

• Although mostly resistant to rust, powder coated aluminum will oxidize if the coating is scratched or damaged.

• High salt exposure in coastal locations, water with high PH balances and garden pesticides can all damage the finish if furniture is not regularly maintained.

• Darker finishes absorb UV rays more than lighter finishes, which can make furniture warm to the touch – and therefore may accelerate fading if left uncovered.

• Commitment to care and maintenance will correlate to the length of time your finish will last.

CARE + MAINTENANCE

• Furniture should be thoroughly cleaned often using a soft towel and mild soap.

• In coastal locations, furniture should be washed with a mild soap and rinsed frequently to remove salt deposits.

• A solution of 1:1 white distilled vinegar and water can be used to help remove water spots. Then rinse with water and dry with a soft cloth.

• Metal furniture can be waxed twice a year, or as needed, to protect the finish. Furniture should always be cleaned first.

• HARBOUR Aluminum Touch-Up kits are available for minor surface scratches.

• Do not use any harsh solvent-based, abrasive or stainless steel cleaners.

RECOMMENDATIONS

• To prevent water spots, do not allow standing water on the surface of the furniture.

• To prevent scratches and chips, do not drag furniture on the ground. The finish can oxidize if damaged.

• Use coasters under glasses and cold drink cans, which can produce condensation and water spots.

• Use felt pads on the bottom of objects that will remain on the tabletop for long periods. This is especially important for natural stone materials or items that retain moisture.

• As with all HARBOUR Outdoor purchases, we recommend using our custom furniture covers for items when not in use; furniture cushions and covers should be clean and dry before covering.

 • When possible, cushions should be removed before covering the frames for longer than a few days to avoid mold and mildew build-up.

• If cushions get wet, tip them on their sides with the zipper facing down and unzipped to ensure that all water drains.

NATURAL TEAK

CHARACTERISTICS

• One of the highlights of natural teak is its beauty and grain. Each teak piece is unique.

• Depending on climate and exposure to elements, teak weathers to a beautiful silver-grey finish over time.

• The wood will expand and contract with changes in climate. Shrinking of the wood can result in hairline cracks in the assembly joints or the grain itself. This does not affect the structural integrity of the frame’s construction.

• We recommend using HARBOUR’s custom-fit outdoor covers to protect furniture from the elements.

• The natural oils in teak may rise to the surface if exposed to rain and humidity, appearing like water stains.

• Oil content can vary between pieces, so oil surfacing may recur multiple times before it naturally subsides over a period of several months.

CARE + MAINTENANCE

• Maintain the original quality of the teak by applying HARBOUR Teak Cleaner at the beginning and end of each season.

• To keep the surfaces clean from dirt, mold and mildew, periodically hose with water and HARBOUR Teak Cleaner, scrubbing in the directions of the grain.

 • For stubborn areas, use a power washer to clean. Hold the power washer approximately 30” away from the furniture and do not exceed 1200 PSI. Rinse and then allow to sun dry.

• Exposure to moisture over time can raise the wood grain.

• A light sanding with fine 120-grit sandpaper smooths the surface.

RECOMMENDATIONS

• Furniture should be cleaned periodically and always before storing.

• If furniture is in a saltwater environment, rinse weekly to remove all salt.

• Avoid letting water stand on the surface of furniture and cushions.

• As with all HARBOUR Outdoor purchases, we recommend using our custom furniture covers for items when not in use; furniture cushions and covers should be clean and dry before covering.

OUTDOOR UPHOLSTERY AND INSERTS

CHARACTERISTICS

• Our fabrics are 100% solution-dyed acrylic.

• All our fabrics resist stains, mildew and fading, making them easy care and weather friendly.

• Although our outdoor upholstery fabrics are mildew resistant, spores that create mold and mildew thrive in environments with dirt and moisture.

• To deter mold and mildew, always remove wet cushions from furniture frames and perform frequent cleaning and maintenance.

• All cushion upholstery and cushion cores are compliant with CA TB117-2013.

• HARBOUR Outdoor cushion inserts are constructed with a poly-foam core wrapped in a poly-casing to prevent water from penetrating the foam inner core.

• Our upholstered outdoor furniture cushions are constructed of reticulated foam to facilitate drainage.

CARE + MAINTENANCE

• To prevent embedded dirt stains, use a soft-bristle brush to frequently dust and remove dirt from the fabric.

For everyday stains:

• Use a mild cleaner with warm water or HARBOUR Fabric Cleaner and a soft-bristle brush and rinse thoroughly.

• Tip cushions on their sides with the zipper facing down and unzipped to ensure that all water drains.

• Once completely dry, apply HARBOUR Fabric Protector to repel dirt and moisture.

For mold and mildew:

• Soak in a 1:20 solution of bleach to water and wash with diluted dishwashing liquid and rinse thoroughly.

• A power washing with a pressure of 1200 PSI is highly effective – anything more will damage the fibers. Hold the power washer approximately 30” away from the cushion to wash away mold and mildew. • Tip cushions on their sides with the zipper facing down and unzipped to ensure that all water drains. For teak wood oil surfacing: oils released from natural teak can be removed from cushions by gently washing with HARBOUR Fabric Cleaner and either a power washer (1200 PSI) or a soft-bristle brush.

• To avoid oil surfacing on dining chair cushions, flip cushions up when not in use until oil surfacing subsides.

• Set-in stains and mildew may require professional cleaning.

RECOMMENDATIONS

• Furniture should be cleaned periodically and always before storing.

• If furniture is in a saltwater environment, rinse weekly to remove all salt.

• Avoid letting water stand on the surface of furniture and cushions.
