METAL FRAME MAINTENANCE
OW Lee metal furniture is designed to require minimum maintenance. Metal frames should be kept clean. Do not let dirt build up on the metal frames. Cleaning with mild soap and water, and seasonal touch-up of any scratches, chips or occasional rust seepage from crevices or hidden, unfinishable surfaces inherent in some ornate designs is all that is required. Touch-up pens in matching frame colors are available through your retail dealer. Never leave furniture standing in water. To keep your furniture looking its best, you may wish to store or cover your furniture when not in use for an extended period of time.
OW Lee uses quality 100% solution dyed acrylics or acrylic/polyester blended fabrics, and only the finest outdoor foam and fiber fillings. Fabrics have been treated to resist stains and water before leaving the factory. Regular cleaning with mild soap and water using a sponge or soft scrub brush is all that is required.
PORCELAIN TILE TOPS
O.W Lee porcelain tile tops are beautiful and very easy to maintain. Available in a multitude of colors, porcelain tile tops are an ideal material for any outdoor space. Porcelain tiles are made from porcelain clays which is a denser, finer grained clay making them stronger once fired than non-porcelain ceramic tiles. Moreover, porcelain tiles have a low water absorption rate (less than 0.5%) making them very frost resistant. Keep porcelain table tops free of dust with regular cleanings. Clean with a mild liquid soap, water, and a clean soft rag, followed by a clean water rinse to remove soap residue. For tougher stains such as dirt build-up, food, etc, use a ph-balanced cleaner made for use on porcelain. Always store the tops during extended periods of unuse.
HAMMERED COPPER TABLE TOPS
Use only light hand soap and water to clean regularly. We recommend non-alkaline hand soap.
Do not use an abrasive pad or scrub profusely when cleaning. Copper is a relatively soft metal and will scratch or mar if too much force is used when cleaning. We recommend softly cleaning with a cotton wash cloth or rag.
Use coasters and placemats when enjoying the Hammered Copper Table Top. Acids in soft drinks, beer, or any number of beverages may interact with the patina coating. The same is true for a variety of foods.
We recommend you keep the table top dry. Continued exposure to water, i.e. repeated exposure to sprinklers or rain may cause the top to oxidize, creating a greenish patina. We also recommend you keep your top covered when not in use or keep under a covered patio.
If your top is scratched or comes into contact with an acid, a shiny spot of bare copper may appear. The spot will eventually age back to the original dark brown finish over time.
Hammered Copper tops are hand made. Color and patina will vary from top to top.
