featureDECO recommends the following guidelines to ensure your outdoor rattan furniture fabrics and cushions maintain their appearance and condition.
All polyester fabrics are classed as showerproof, which means that it is water repellent and that water can still penetrate the material. Please note, this is not to be confused with waterproof which means that water cannot penetrate the surface and is impervious to water. Prolonged exposure to moisture, will result in showerproof fabrics and foam becoming damp. Should this occur, we recommend that the covers are removed, the covers and foams are air-dried, once dry the covers can be put back on. The natural drying process after rainwater exposure can leave a white water residue, this can be removed by washing the covers with a mild detergent at 30 degrees, and air drying.
If the cushions have been left outdoors in prolonged rain, this can potentially damage the fabric and foam.
