Cleaning And Finishing Your Aluminum Outdoor Furniture
It might be an exaggeration to suggest that aluminum outdoor furniture is a miracle of modern manufacturing but such utterances will receive short shrift from delighted business owners who wish they had tables and chairs made from the substance years ago. While furniture made from other substances inevitably succumb to the elements or damage caused by guests, aluminum outdoor furniture can last for years without any trouble with minimal cleaning required in order to keep the tables and chairs looking brand new.
As aluminum outdoor furniture is so light, it is easy to preserve it by bringing it indoors after all the customers have left. However, it is just as easy to leave it outdoors as aluminum is not susceptible to rust or damage from inclement weather. Cleaning the furniture is as easy as a simple wipe down with a cloth every now and then.
The Importance Of A Good Finish
Sellers of commercial aluminum outdoor furniture will apply a type of finish to the product to strengthen it further. Anodizing is one method of ensuring the furnitures already impressive durability is increased even further. This is a process that adds a layer of aluminum oxide to the metal. The thicker the coating is, the longer the metal will be protected. Busy resorts may choose to purchase aluminum outdoor furniture with this coating because it will remain strong, even when heavily used.
As aluminum outdoor furniture will be subjected to the UV rays of the sun as well as rainwater, (and potentially swimming pool water if used in such a resort) it will need some form of powder coat finish to ensure it is completely weatherproof. Reputable companies that sell outdoor aluminum furniture will offer at least a 12 month warranty against the finish being damaged through peeling or cracking and should also offer a 5 year guarantee on the frames. Properly finished aluminum outdoor furniture should provide years of great service to a business.
