All fabrics can show hues which are slightly different because they come from different production batches or have a different exposure to light. This feature should not be considered a defect but a characteristic of the product. EMU uses the most advanced technologies in the textile industry to produce outdoor furniture. Our materials are resistant to water splashing, UV rays, salt deposits, and perspiration, all of which does not cause them to lose their structural and comfort features. After it has rained we recommend you dry the furniture with fabrics in order to prevent the formation of damp stains and moulds. To make the products last longer, EMU recommends to store them, if they are not used for a long time (e.g. autumn/winter) or if it rains persistently, in a closed, aerated and dry space, covering them with canvasses to preserve their condition and protect them from dust and dirt. Before you put them away, make sure that they are completely dry. It is advisable to use covers/linings outdoors, but just for short periods. Covers are not an alternative to winter storage of the products. If it rains always make sure that there is no humidity between the lining and the products in order to prevent the formation of moulds; these are textile manufacturing products, therefore the presence of residual humidity is possible and may cause mould formation. All materials meet the most stringent quality standards for outdoor use; these fabrics are fastdrying and low-maintenance.
USE AND MAINTENANCE
Avoid prolonged contact with greasy substances and/or dyes or colorants that could be absorbed by the covering material and cause permanent stains, as well as deteriorating the yarn structure. In the case of use near the sea or swimming pools, periodic washing is recommended. Frequent washing: follow the specific instructions given on the label for each material. Use water and non-abrasive, colorless, neutral PH liquid detergents. If necessary, allow the detergent to act for a few minutes. Rinse thoroughly with water at a temperature not higher than 30°C (86°F). If pressure cleaning devices are used, keep the tip of the nozzle at a distance of at least 60-70 cm from the surface of the product. If necessary, repeat the operation. Do not use abrasive sponges to remove stains and do not treat with bleach or chlorine.
* The FLAME RETARDANT characteristic is an indication of chemical resistance against sources of heat or fire.
