Synthetic rattan garden furniture is durable, easy to maintain and looks great. Synthetic rattan garden furniture is an excellent alternative to real rattan furniture. It’s durable, lightweight, and easy to maintain. But any good synthetic rattan furniture will only last if you take care of it properly! Here are some tips on how to care for and maintain your rattan garden furniture:


Do Not Leave Rattan Furniture Outside During Extreme Weather Conditions

You’ll notice that your furniture has been treated with a UV-resistant coating. This keeps the Rattan solid and durable and prevents any colouring of the material.

However, this coating is not indestructible. It can be damaged by excessive exposure to sunlight or other weather conditions. If you leave your furniture outside during extreme conditions (frost, rain, snow or intense heat), you risk damaging your furniture’s finish which may result in premature wear and tear. We recommend keeping yours indoors as often as possible to prolong its life.


If that is not practical, then;

Use a Cover

To protect your Rattan furniture from the elements, you should use a custom-made cover that is breathable and waterproof. This will keep rainwater out and keep it dry, even in inclement weather conditions. The cover must also be UV resistant so that it does not fade with time. It must be easy to put on and take off as well as easy to clean when necessary.


Although the cushions are Uv resistant, it’s always best to keep them out of direct sunlight got prolonged periods to avoid fading. Cushions are water resistant but should not be left out in heavy rain and should be stored in a dry place in winter/during non-use.


Always Store Your Cushions Separately When Not In Use.

When your cushions are not in use, you should store them separately from the furniture. Please place them in a sealed plastic bag or container to keep them clean and dry. This will help prevent dirt from getting on the cushions and protect them from stains caused by mildew. If you’re storing in an enclosed space (like a garage), ensure it’s well-ventilated, so moisture doesn’t build up on the surfaces of your furniture or cushions.


Cleaning your Rattan Garden Furniture

Thankfully, cleaning synthetic rattan garden furniture is simple. They are durable, so you can clean them as often as you need without any problem. All you need is soap, water and a sponge or soft brush! If stubborn stains are on your chair, it may be necessary to use some mild detergent before washing them off with lukewarm water. After drying off the chair thoroughly, it’s advisable that you spray some oil onto the rattan furniture to keep it from drying out quickly in the sun or rain.



When you’re cleaning your furniture, use a sponge that is clean and soft. You can damage the material if it has sharp edges or rough surfaces. The right sponge size also matters: too small, and it won’t apply enough pressure to remove grime; too big, and you’ll have trouble reaching all of the nooks and crannies.
