Outdoor furniture can be exposed to harsh outdoor elements. Wrought iron patio furniture brings a timeless, romantic quality to patios, decks, and porches. If cared for properly, it can last an indefinite number of years. If not properly cared for, though, wrought iron can chip, rust, and lose its original appeal. While wrought iron furniture doesn’t require a lot of special treatment, it does need to be cleaned and checked periodically to ensure that it stays in the same good condition as it was when you first acquired it.
To protect them from damage it is better to cover them when not in use or to store the dry and dark place. Regular cleaning and processing of parts painted with liquid wax can extend the life of aluminum and iron garden furniture.Subject to external influence, painted iron surfaces can be oxidized with time.
Fade paint can be refreshed by using a cleaning agent for automotive paints and liquid wax. Surfaces that are already too much oxidised, can be treated with a special product to remove oxidation (eg quality of polishing compound for cars). Avoid the use of abrasive mixtures, even if iron patio furniture are very fine, because their particles can leave small scratches on the paint.
If you paint a garden or patio wrought iron furniture has started to be white is better to repair as quickly as possible bare areas to protect them from rust. Clean sites with alcohol, treated iron garden furniture carefully with sandpaper and cover with a layer of new paint so that it is possible to merge the old layer. If using a previously resistant to rust primer will reduce the risk of spread of rust. The iron parts used in assembling the various parts of the iron garden furniture should also be regularly inspected for any corrosion or rust – if any of iron patio furniture start to damage you should be changed before corrosion can spread.
