It is recommended that furniture is kept away from salt air environments and be cleaned regularly –at least every 2 months, giving importance to the removal of salt particles on the structure, as it may oxidize, discolor or blister. Finish cracks due to improper cleaning will void this warranty. If cleaning chemicals such as sodium hypochlorite, ammonia, muriatic acid or chlorine are used to clean the floors, MAKE SURE TO REMOVE furniture from area. Prior to reinstalling the furniture, floors MUST be thoroughly rinsed with clean water, as residue from cleaning chemicals may deteriorate the frame’s finish. Proper cleaning and maintenance will prevent frame painted finish in a salt environment from blistering and/or oxidizing.

During winter, all furniture should be stored indoors in an upright position to allow for proper water drainage. Storing furniture upside-down may cause water to accumulate and freeze inside the frame (potentially causing serious structural damage) which would immediately void any warranty.
