Plastic Frame Care
POLYWOOD material is made of HDPE plastic resin that has been purified and UV protected. It is generally cared for and cleaned with soap and warm water. For certain stains and additional cleaning power, a 1/3 bleach and 2/3 water solution can be used on the product without affecting the color. Also, a popular method of cleaning is a high-pressure power wash. (Not to exceed 1,500 psi, which is the equivalent of a car wash.) The surface characteristics of the product may require the use of a soft bristle brush to get into the creases.
The hardware used in the assembly and construction of our furniture is an 18-8 commercial grade stainless steel that has an additional Xylan protective and cosmetic coating. Although the quality of the hardware has a high level of corrosive resistance, the hardware can show some signs of corrosion in salt air environments.
A practical solution to these signs of corrosion would be to wash the product with soap and water. Use a soft bristle brush to scrub the corroding areas of the hardware. Also, use appliance touch-up paint in the appropriate color to protect the hardware. Appliance touch-up paint can be purchased at local hardware stores.
Cleaning Clear Glass Gems
As with any outdoor item, eventually the clear glass gems may display a buildup of dust and dirt. Wait until the glass gems are completely cool (several hours after using your fire table) and scoop them out. Wash with a mixture of warm water and mild dish detergent. Rinse completely before placing the glass gems back in the burner bowl.
Cleaning Glass Wind Guard
You can wash the wind guard as you would any other glass surface. We recommend a gentle scrubbing with soap and water before a thorough rinse.
