Fabric Cleaning Instructions

Acrylic
Acrylic fabrics should be cleaned with warm water and a mild soap. Mildew will not grow on these fabrics but may grow in dirt that is on the fabric. For mildew stains, mix one cup bleach and mild soap with a gallon of water. Sponge with clean water after and let the fabric air dry.

Printed Acrylic
Do not use bleach or other cleaners on these fabrics. Spot wash with warm water and mild soap, then let air dry. These fabrics are not warranted against fading.

Printed Polyester
Do not use bleach or other cleaners. Mild detergent and warm water only, spot rinse with clean water, then air dry. These fabrics are not warranted against fading.

Olefins & Polyester Blend
Olefin fabrics can be cleaned with a solution of warm water and a mild detergent. You can use a diluted bleach solution on tough stains. Rinse with clean water and air dry.

Frames & Detailed Care

Lloyd Flanders

Lloyd Loom Painted Finishes
If the wicker finish becomes worn, scratched or chipped, clean and dry the area and cover with our Lloyd/Flanders touch-up spray paint. If the painted frame becomes worn, scratched or chipped, lightly sand the area with fine grit sandpaper. Clean and dry the area, then cover with our Lloyd/Flanders touch-up spray paint.

Lloyd Flanders Vinyl Finishes
Vacuum or use a soft brush on woven material and cushions to remove organic material to prevent decay. Using a sponge, wash with mild detergent and warm water to remove soil. Rinse and allow to dry thoroughly before use. We do not warranty freeze damage. Please use a breathable cover for your furniture in extreme climates.

Cushions
If excessive water accumulates in cushions, stand upright with open zipper or seam side down. Be sure the inside of the cushion is completely dry. Printed acrylics may be scrubbed with a solution of mild detergent and warm water. Do not use bleach. Rinse and air dry. DO NOT PUT IN DRYER OR DRY CLEANERS. Cushions of solution dyed acrylic fabrics can be cleaned with one cup of chlorine bleach in one gallon of water with a small amount of mild detergent. Test in a small inconspicuous area. Saturate a rag or soft brush with the solution. Scrub the entire cushion and rinse well with water and let air dry.

Mildew
Lloyd /Flanders does not guarantee that our woven material and cushions will be mildew free. Mildew grows on damp, soiled items. Woven material and cushions must be kept clean.

Travertine/Slate Table Tops
Clean the surface with a mild detergent, then apply a good stone sealer. This will enhances the natural color and beauty of the stone, while helping protect the surface against U.V. rays and other natural elements.

Gloster
Teak Contrary to popular belief, teak furniture does not require any special maintenance routine or any additional protection apart from occasional cleaning. Left to age naturally outside by being exposed to light, air and rain, teak will gradually change to a soft, silver-grey as the pigments in the surface layer of the wood slowly start to fade away. We recommend that you allow your teak furniture to weather naturally this way and simply clean thoroughly once or twice a year with our Teak Cleaner.

To protect teak surfaces from staining and to help maintain the silver-grey patina on weathered teak, we recommend using our Teak Protector. An application of this product forms an almost invisible shield which helps to prevent food (coffee, ketchup, red wine, olive oil, etc.) penetrating into the teak and causing unsightly stains. Teak Protector also helps protects the wood against the ingress of moisture, the adhesion of dirt and prevents mildew growth.

If you wish to retain the golden-brown color of new teak we also offer a Teak Sealer. Application of Teak Sealer will not affect the strength or longevity of the furniture in any way, just its appearance. If you elect to use Teak Sealer you will be embarking on a regular maintenance program as Teak Sealer needs to be regularly reapplied to provide continuous protection.

If you intend to store your furniture over the winter, we recommend that you do so in a water-tight garden shed, garage or outhouse. However, we advise that you do not move teak furniture from the garden straight into a heated indoor room for storage, as the sharp differences in temperature and humidity may cause the wood to split.

Seaside Casual
Seaside EnviroWood furniture is made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), a recyclable plastic that will never need painting or staining. It will not rot or splinter, and contains an added UV inhibitor to resist fading. HDPE is not affected by most corrosive substances, and will not absorb moisture or promote bacterial growth. To maintain the furniture clean regularly with soap and water. Stainless steel fasteners used to assemble furniture are virtually maintenance free under normal conditions. However, in coastal areas hardware will require regular rinsing with fresh water to avoid rusting. Do not use chlorine-based cleaning products on the stainless steel.
