Ceramic - Outdoor

How to care for your Ceramic outdoor furniture.
Ceramic is made from a mixture of natural minerals such as clay, feldspar, and silica that is baked at high temperatures to achieve a glass-like, non-porous surface.
Ceramic is a highly durable and robust material, making it a prime choice for outdoor furniture. 

 

General Care

  • Regularly dust with a dry, soft cloth.
  • Clean spills immediately. Blot spill with a clean cloth to absorb as much of the spill as possible. If required, wash the surface with warm water and a diluted neutral detergent. Dry thoroughly with a clean soft cloth.
  • Do not use acids, ammonia-based or other harsh chemical-based cleaning products
  • Use coasters, placemats, trivets, tablecloths, and table runners to ceramic surfaces from heat, stains and objects with abrasive finishes that may scratch the material.

 

Important Considerations

  • Speak with your Designer to ensure the products selected are suitable for your specific environment as well as discuss the level of maintenance that will be needed.
  • Your outdoor furniture may require different levels of care depending on the environment in which it is used. In general, monthly cleaning and maintenance of your outdoor furniture is recommended to help prevent damage.
  • As coastal/seaside environments may accelerate development of natural salt deposits and deterioration of your outdoor furniture, it is important to consider that products used in these locations will require frequent maintenance.
  • Consider storing your outdoor furniture during the off-season or extreme weather to avoid preventable damage and deterioration. To store, clean the product thoroughly and let it dry completely. Store in a dry, cool place away from direct sunlight. Do not store in humid or high moisture environments.
