Outdoor furniture maintenance for the season

Outdoor furniture maintenance for the season


Spring has began, and with it comes the perfect opportunity to breathe new life into our outdoor spaces. This article is your ultimate guide to getting your outdoor furniture ready, ensuring you can make the most of the spring-summer season.

Specific Care for Each Material

Preparing our outdoor furniture for spring isn’t just about aesthetics, but also about preservation and extending its lifespan. Each material, with its unique characteristics, requires special care to withstand natural elements and daily use.

Below, we detail specific maintenance advice for our outdoor furniture based on the different types of materials, ensuring they look immaculate this season and remain in prime condition for years to come.

Cleaning Plastic Furniture (Polyethylene and Polypropylene)

Furniture made from polyethylene and polypropylene has been a hallmark of Vondom from the beginning. These materials not only provide our furniture with superior quality, offering exceptional resistance and durability, but they also make maintenance a breeze.

To ensure your outdoor furniture looks brand new and is ready for spring, it’s essential to follow an effective cleaning procedure:

  1. Spray degreaser on the surface to break down dirt and grease.
  2. Wipe with a damp cloth to clean without damaging the material.
  3. Rinse with a pressure washer, avoiding padded and lacquered finishes.
  4. Let it air dry.

Cleaning Fabrics

Fabrics play a crucial role in the comfort and aesthetic of our Vondom collections, featured in padding and our decorative cushions. Therefore, they require special care to stay in optimal condition.

To clean our fabrics, we recommend the following effective steps:

  1. Apply mild soap with a cloth to preserve colours and textures.
  2. Brush in one direction with a soft brush, avoiding marks.
  3. Clean broadly around stains for an even finish.
