At Bridgman, all of our outdoor furniture - Rattan, Teak, Aluminium and Resin, is designed to be virtually maintenance free. With just a little TLC, you can keep it looking its best year after year. Simply remove all the cushions, if applicable, and brush away any loose debris such as leaves, bird droppings or food, then clean with a soft brush and warm soapy water. Finally, rinse with clean water.
Rattan and teak can also be cleaned with careful use of a jet wash, but be mindful of what setting is used and be careful not to get too close as some machines can be very powerful. Rattan just needs to dry and will be good to go. Teak will need to dry thoroughly for at least 48 hours and then run your hands gently over the wood, rubbing down any raised patches with a low grit sand paper. At this stage, you may choose to apply treatment onto the newly cleaned timber or leave it to turn a natural silver, grey colour. Any application used will not affect the lifespan of the furniture, it is merely a cosmetic finish.
