OUR ADVICE FOR THE MAINTENANCE
OF YOUR FURNITURE AND CUSHIONS
The furniture you receive has been protected with oil and/or paint in our workshops. It can therefore be installed directly outside.
In other words, you have nothing to do for the time being... ... except enjoy a well-deserved break in your garden!
Our products are suitable for outdoor use, in the sun and in the rain, and regular maintenance will prolong their life.
If you have the possibility, we advise you to bring them inside during the cold season or to cover them with a protective tarpaulin, taking care not to trap any humidity.
Store your swings in their packing boxes when you take them down.
Note: Wood is a natural and living material, whose appearance will change over time.
The natural colour of the wood will gradually fade and turn grey as a result of weathering, as well as exposure to UV light from the sun and the moon. This is normal and is not a defect.
This grey tint does not alter the intrinsic qualities of the wood and if it suits you, you can choose to leave it that way.
The colour of a painted or oiled piece of furniture will gradually fade.
Wood care :
Cleaning of your already protected furniture:
With exterior soap, the frequency of use may vary according to the dirtiness of the wood.
Renewing the colour of oiled furniture:
Renewing the colour of painted furniture:
You will find on the website www.malouinieres.com, the paints we have selected for l’Escarpolette, as well as the nourishing glazes to renew them.
Care of the cushions :
First, remove the dirt with a brush.
Then clean the fabric with a soft bristle brush moistened with a mild soap and water solution.
Wait for the cleaning solution to penetrate the fabric. Then rinse thoroughly until all soap residues have been removed.
Finally, allow the fabric to air dry.
