Recommended Care and Maintenance
Winston outdoor furniture can be enjoyed for many years when well-maintained. Wash the furniture with a solution of mild detergent and water, rinse with clear water and dry thoroughly. A clear automobile wax can be applied to smooth frame finishes to provide better protection against harmful ultraviolet exposure and salt air. Do not use any kind of wax, abrasive materials, or strong detergents on textured finishes. To vinyl lace, strap, and mesh seating surfaces, apply a quality vinyl protectant to guard against the effects of air pollution, salt air build-up, and mildew growth. Wash outdoor cushions with a solution of mild detergent and water and thoroughly rinse with clear water. Allow cushions to air dry completely. For best protection, perform this maintenance two to three times a year, although these durable materials can be safely cleaned as often as desired.
Recommended Care for Fabrics
Fine outdoor fabrics were designed to endure years of sun, soil, and moisture. Light stains can 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. Do not dry clean or use a washing machine or dryer. Do not steam or use water at temperatures above 100 degrees F when washing. Be careful to keep the cleaner from contact with the cushions of your Winston furniture, as it will cause discoloration. Do not use bleach on printed acrylic fabrics. Do not use solvent-type materials on woven vinyl, woven blend, or ultra woven blend fabrics, as they will damage the yarns. Do not use chlorine-based cleaners. Please note that some suntan and sun block products may be harmful to cushions. Do not allow such products to come in contact with any seating surfaces to avoid deep penetrating stains, which are not covered under warranty.
Cleaning and Caring for Sunbrella
Regular maintenance is the best way to keep your Sunbrella fabrics looking good and delay deep, vigorous cleaning. Brush off dirt before it becomes embedded in the fabrics, and wipe up spills as soon as they occur. For light cleaning, use a mild soap and water solution and a sponge, allowing your cleaning solution to soak into the fabric. Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residue and allow fabric to air dry.
All furniture should be stored in an upright position to allow for proper water drainage. Storing furniture upside-down may cause water to accumulate and freeze inside the frame, causing serious structural damage that is not covered by the warranty.
