Care & Maintenance

INSTRUCTIONS

Source Furniture collections are easy to care for and by following these care and maintenance tips you will ensure longevity of our products:

Seaside Usage

Source Furniture recommends regular cleaning to avoid buildup of oxidation and waxing the frames quarterly to help with their longevity. Some car waxes can be used for this purpose. Failure to clean and maintain your furniture may result in blistering and may void any warranty. A log of your cleaning, done at regular intervals, must be kept in order to maintain your warranty coverage.

Aluminum Frame Finishes

You should clean your powder coated aluminum furniture at least once every season. To maintain the frame finish, Source Furniture recommends using a mild soap and warm water solution. Use1⁄4 cup of soap to one gallon of water using a soft rag or sponge to clean frames. After applying the soap and water simply rinse off with clean water. For tougher cleaning, add a natural acid like lemon juice or white vinegar to the warm water and soap solution. Apply the mixture with a clean sponge and scrub aluminum furniture thoroughly. This should eliminate any discoloration and get rid of dirt and debris build-up from being outside. Do not use bleach on any frames, as this will void all warranties. Never use ammonia, ammonia-based products, TSP or baking soda to clean powder coated aluminum furniture. To protect your Aluminum Furniture, it is recommended to move it indoors or using furniture covers.

Stainless Steel Frame Furniture

Stainless steel it will stain over time. To resist corrosion, it is vital that the surface to be kept clean. Environmental elements can take a toll on stainless steel, speeding up corrosion process. Regular cleaning can help slow down the corrosion process. Commercial stainless steel cleaners can be used following the product’s instructions to prevent any discoloration. Avoid any cleaners with strong acid solutions.

Galvanized Steel Frame Furniture

Galvanized steel is easy to keep clean as it is virtually maintenance free. A mild soap and water solution is recommended to keep the surface clean. Rinse and dry thoroughly.

Duraweave / Wicker

Woven furnishings are made of durable and weather-resistant extruded polyethylene wicker. Light stains and soils may be removed with a solution of mild detergent and water, rinsed with clear water and dried thoroughly. Mildew and heavy stains can be removed with a quality commercial outdoor furniture cleaner and protectant. Woven furnishings may not be suitable for intensely hot climates. If placed outdoors, the furniture will last longer by storing in a cool place with furniture covers.

Table Tops

Source Furniture table tops are designed for normal indoor and outdoor use in commercial settings. If tabletop is stained with products such as wine, soda, coffee, or other colorants of organic origin, clean spills immediately with a mild detergent then rinse with water. In extreme cold climates, it is recommended that table tops be stored in a dry indoor area or be covered with suitable furniture covers. Be sure to allow space between the tabletop and the cover so that moisture does not collect on the table; this will promote airflow and allow moisture to escape.

Durawood

Durawood is virtually maintenance free as with most treated lumber or wood fiber composite products. It has extraordinary resistance to fading, moisture, insects, splintering, and other elements resulting from environmental stress. To maintain Durawood material, wipe the surface with a damp cloth or spray with a garden hose. For stubborn dirt, the surface may be washed with a mild solution of detergent or dishwashing soap in water, then rinsed thoroughly and allowed to dry completely. To repair minor scratches on the surface of the material, use a
600-grit sandpaper and sand in the direction of the grain.

Duraboard

This superior material made HOPE High Density Polyethylene and can be used indoors or outdoors as it will not fade in the sunlight. To care and maintain for Duraboard products use a soft dampened rag with cold water or use a mild detergent solution, rinse with water, and dry. Do not use any abrasive cleaning materials containing acids, methyl alcohol, hydrocarbons or solvents. Duraboard is lead and heavy metal free, which allows optimized performance while being environmentally friendly. No glue will stick to this material and no paint will adhere to the surface making it graffiti proof.

Duratop

Duratop table tops are easy to maintain as they are constructed as one seamless piece. To clean, wipe the surface with a damp cloth. To clean spills use a mild detergent solution, rinse with water, and dry. Regular household cleaners are safe to use on Duratop table tops.

Molded Resin (Polycarbonate and Polypropylene)

To care and maintain our Molded Resin products use a soft dampened rag with cold water. Do not use any abrasive cleaning materials containing acids, methyl alcohol, hydrocarbons or solvents.

Quartz

Quartz Table Tops should be use only indoors as color may fade when exposed to direct sunlight. In general, they are pretty low maintenance. Generally, warm, soapy water takes care of cleaning the surface. Avoid abrasive cleansers and harsh chemicals. Spills should be cleaned as soon as possible to avoid staining. If gum or paint need to be removed, use a plastic scraper to gently scrape away it away.

Porcelain

To maintain and clean Porcelain table tops, wipe the surface with a damp cloth. To clean spills use a mild detergent solution, rinse with water, and dry as soon as possible.

Other Maintenance

Source Furniture recommends a thorough check of all moving parts such as hinges, nuts and bolts periodically. With failing to maintain these parts, disassembly or breakage may occur and void the warranty.

Cushions

To prevent damage, water on cushions can be drained by standing the cushion upright to let dry.

Sling fabrics

To clean cushions made with Serge Ferrari® or Phifertex® sling fabric use a mild soap mixed with two tablespoons of bleach and a gallon of water. Use a soft brush to apply the cleaning solution and rinse off thoroughly with clean water. You can also use a brush or vacuum.

Upholstery and Awning / Marine (Shade) Fabric

Cushions made with Sunbrella® fabrics can be washed by briskly sponging with a solution of mild soap. For stains, a fabric spot remover can be used. Please follow all directions for the spot remover products. One of the best ways to keep Sunbrella® brand fabrics looking good and to delay deep or vigorous cleanings is to properly maintain the fabrics. This can be accomplished by simply brushing off dirt before it becomes embedded in the fabrics, wiping up spills as soon as they occur or spot cleaning soon after stains occur.
