CLEAN, CARE & MAINTENANCE TIPS
SUNS Lifestyle products are fully weatherproof and designed to stay outside all year round. The natural components (such as wood) may discolour over time, but that is part of its properties and adds to the charm of the product. Despite the fact that all SUNS Lifestyle products are designed to stay outside all year round, placing them inside – at times when you’re not using them – will result in a longer lifespan.
Below you’ll find some tips to help keep your SUNS Lifestyle product in tip-top condition.
Our products are easy to clean and for best results, we always recommend the use of SUNS Shine Cleaners and Protectors.
These models require very minimal maintenance. The frames and gutters can be washed with cleaning materials and a jet wash can also be used.
Avoid placing objects on the tables for a long time that may directly or indirectly cause stains, such as ashtrays, pots, vases and so on. Do not place hot objects directly on tables, such as tea lights and pans. Use coasters and table mats to prevent damage.
TEAK & WOOD
Specifically for teak products, we recommend unboxing your furniture and letting it breathe and acclimatise for 24 hours. For best results, we’d then suggest using our Wood Cleaner, allowing it to dry and then finish with the Wood Protector.
Wood, both Grandis Eucalyptus and teak are best cleaned with plenty of water and SUNS Wood Cleaner. Wood will discolour over time into a warm grey tone. Wood can be treated with SUNS Wood Protector to maintain its fresh cut colour for longer.
If you want to wash your cushions, carefully read the washing instructions or use the products from our SUNS Shine care range. The cushions are water repellent, but with prolonged exposure to water the inner cushion can still become wet. Ideally keep the cushions dry and remove excess water after a heavy shower. Avoid prolonged placement of objects/accessories on the cushions to prevent discolouration. Over time cushions can become softer, which results in a slight wrinkle formation. The quality of the cushions can be retained by exchanging their places, beating them and keeping them clean.
To clean and maintain your SUNS Lifestyle products, we recommend using SUNS Shine Cleaners and Protectors. These care products are optimised and safe to use on your products.
We do not recommend the use of aggressive cleaning agents or abrasives. Do not cover your product with, for instance, a protective cover; this may result in permanent stains due to weathering, suffocation, or mould formation. Be careful with fire, hot materials, oils and fats near your garden furniture. Remove any spilt liquids, food, bird droppings, and wet leaves as quickly as possible.
