Bamboo furniture 'Info & Care'

Spring has arrived so it's time to get your bamboo furniture out again and enjoy the sun!

You should know that our bamboo collection needs love and care like all other outdoor wooden furniture, so we've listed up some tips & tricks to keep your bamboo in great shape. 

Our bamboo is perfectly suited for inside & outside use. The bamboo will change over time when it is placed outside. The colour of the surface will become brighter and more grey (which i love, but that's personal). 
When summer is over, it's best to store your bamboo in a dry ventilated environment during the autumn and winter season. Make sure that the furniture is placed on a dry surface to avoid the legs from absorbing water. 

If you use your bamboo furniture indoor, just clean it with a simple damp cloth for dusting. That will do just fine!  

For outdoor use, the surface may collect some dirt, stains or even mold. But as bamboo is resistant, the mold will only be superficial and will never penetrate inside the bamboo. Dirt and mold are very easy to remove from the surface. Follow our cleaning instructions, steps 1 and 2. You can add steps 3 and 4 for even better results. 

  1. Use a hard cleaning sponge and/or scouring powder with abrasive effect to remove dirt, stains and possible mold.
  2. Rinse well with plenty of water to remove all soap and dirt.
  3. Spray with a cleaning product containing chlorine, ammonia or vinegar directly on the bamboo, leave it on for a while, rinse well with water and let it dry completely in the sun for optimum results.
  4. For extra treatment in the end of the season – before winter storage - we recommend you to treat your bamboo with an anti-mildew and mold detergent. Contact your nearest DIY store for the best exterior wood treatment to avoid fungus and mold in a wet and humid winter climate.

We recommend you to wash outdoor bamboo furniture before every season. Repeat the washing a few times during the season, and do the washing on a sunny day to get the best results.

Okay, the cleaning part wasn't so fun, but now your terrace is ready for summer! 
Enjoy it to the max!
