Patio furniture, also known as garden furniture and outdoor furniture is specifically designed for outdoor use and as such are made of weather resistant materials. One of the materials this furniture can be made of is the popular wrought iron. Contrary to popular believe, the 3-piece bistro set is not the only furniture style available. There is a wide variety of wrought iron garden and patio furniture available including chairs, end tables, sofas, love seats, etc. Also, one can choose other colours than the traditional black such as white, beige or brown. All painted surface finishings are factory applied.
Scratches on metal parts
Despite all your efforts you may find some rust or an accidental scratch. Take care of it as soon as possible. The affected area should be lightly rubbed with fine steel wool before applying a coat of of rust-inhibiting paint.
Many manufacturers will include a touch up paint kit with the purchase of wrought iron patio furniture. Always follow the instructions as printed on the label or enclosed literature. If in doubt, contact the manufacturer for more information. Applying two thin coats is better than one heavy coat. When completely dry apply a fresh coating of liquid wax.
Winter storage and cleaning
In northern climates the wrought iron furniture should be stored inside, preferably in a humidity- free area
.






Before putting it away for the season you may want to wipe down the wrought iron furniture with a mix of water and mild dish soap.
Maintenance
- Wrought iron should be cleaned with soapy water only. Do NOT use abrasive materials or strong detergents.
- Apply several coats of a liquid wax to protect the metal from damage caused by airborne pollutants and to prevent rust.
- Bird droppings are acidic and should be removed immediately to prevent lasting damage to your wrought iron patio furniture.


TIP
If the wrought iron furniture is not used over longer periods of time it may be a good idea to use waterproof covers.
