Outdoor Materials

Outdoor Stainless Steel

  • Regular cleaning every few weeks will help remove dirt and air pollutants that may pit the surface. Simply rinse with a hose.
  • We recommend using Golden Care Stainless Steel Rust Preventer & Protector once per season to help prevent rust and staining. A light application of car wax can also provide protection.
  • In general, any sign of rust, scratches, scuffs or staining can be easily removed with a metal polish such as Golden Care Stainless Steel Rust Remover & Cleaner. For best results, follow the instructions on the product's label.
  • When used near the ocean, chlorinated water or dense urban areas with higher concentrations of air pollutants, more frequent care and maintenance will be required to extend the life and beauty of the stainless steel. Consider powder-coated finishes in these situations.

Powder-coated Steel and Aluminum

  • For regular maintenance, hose off the surface every few weeks.
  • Wipe up spills immediately.
  • Clean with a damp cloth and mild soap as needed, and follow with a fresh water rinse.
  • Avoid abrasive cleaners as they can scratch or dull the surface of your furniture.

Recycled HDPE and Plastics

  • For regular maintenance, hose off the surface periodically and spot clean with a damp cloth.
  • To remove hard water spots from your plastic furniture, use a solution of vinegar and water.
  • Avoid using products that will dull the surface, such as ethyl alcohol, abrasive solvents, cleaning powders, steel wool or scouring pads.
  • To prevent scratches, do not drag objects across the surface of the plastic. Sharp objects can damage the plastic just as they would damage metal or wood.
  • Always use a cloth or trivet when placing hot items on the surface.

Ipe

  • If exposed to the elements and left untreated, ipe will gradually develop a grey patina. Treating annually minimizes this color change, but isn't required to retain durability and resistance to the elements.
  • To revitalize ipe's color, treat annually with products designed for tropical hardwoods. We recommend Penofin® Verde oil in Natural or Golden Care® products, including Hardwood & Teak Cleaner, Hardwood Protector and Hardwood & Teak Shield. For the best results, follow the instructions on the product's label.
  • Cover wood furniture or store indoors when not in use to extend its life.

Bamboo

  • If exposed to the elements and left untreated, bamboo will gradually develop a grey patina. Treating it annually with oil minimizes this color change but isn't required to retain its durability and resistance to the elements.
  • To revitalize bamboo's color, wash it with warm soapy water using a sponge or soft brush and allow it to dry. Buff the bamboo with a thin coat of Bambrella® oil or a synthetic penetrating decking oil.
  • If mildew has developed on bamboo, clean it using Bambrella® cleaner or a household mold and mildew cleaner. If the mildew leaves a stain, use a bleach-based household cleaner and a pot scourer to remove the mildew. After cleaning, always rinse the bamboo off thoroughly with clean water.
  • Cover wood furniture or store indoors when not in use to extend its life.

  • Store inside or in a protected outdoor area such as a covered patio or terrace.
  • Use a protective cover to minimize cleaning and extend the material's life.

Outdoor Tile

  • Tile is not scratch-proof; use coasters and pads to avoid scratches.
  • Clean spills immediately to avoid staining. Use water and a mild dish soap, cleaning with a sponge, cloth, or soft bristle brush. You may also use a neutral pH cleaner specified for tile. Do not use cleaning products that contain acids like vinegar or lemon juice. Rinse and dry with a towel after cleaning.
  • Outdoor tile is sealed for protection against moisture, heat and cold. Sealants usually last up to two years and then need reapplication. Test your sealant's durability by splashing water on your tile. If it beads and doesn't absorb, your tile is properly sealed.
