Outdoor Fabric

How to care for your Outdoor Fabric.
Acrylic and Polypropylene fabrics offer style, durability and ease of care for outdoor upholstery.
 Follow the care guidelines below to prolong the life of your outdoor fabric.

General Care

  • Remove dust, dirt and debris regularly with a dry, soft-bristled brush or vacuum with an upholstery attachment.
  • Clean spills immediately. Blot spills with a clean cloth to remove as much of the spill as possible. If required, remove the cover and clean with clean, damp cloth and mild detergent. Rinse thoroughly with clean water to remove residue and allow the fabric to air-dry completely.
  • Avoid letting water stand on the surface of upholstery/stay wet for extended periods of time. Where possible, let furniture dry completely between uses.


Focused Care

Along with general care and maintenance guidelines, each material has unique characteristics and care requirements that should be considered. Please follow these additional guidelines to ensure the longevity of your outdoor fabric.

  • Acrylic fabric is not UV resistant and may fade over time. Consider breathable, UV-resistant fabric covers or store your cushions when not in use to protect your upholstery from the sun.


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.
  • If your furniture is heavily soiled or stained, it's best to seek professional cleaning services. Professional cleaners have the equipment and expertise to clean and restore the furniture without causing damage.
  • 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.
