We all know that in the UK, we don’t always get the weather to enjoy relaxing in our gardens as often as we would like. But inclement weather, especially rain and damp, also poses a risk to your garden furniture, damaging your investment as well as your enjoyment.
That is why Jo Alexander stocks a complete range of garden furniture care products. We want our customers to enjoy the furniture they buy for as long as possible, and we are always more than happy to offer advice on care and maintenance to help you get the most for your money.
Different materials used in garden furniture construction require different care regimes. We stock a lot of teak furniture, a beautiful tropical hardwood which is popular for outdoor furniture because it is one of the toughest and most durable timbers available. It is also a particularly attractive wood, with a light sandy brown tone people love.
After exposure to the elements, however, teak gradually loses its natural colour and fades to a silvery grey. Some people like this, and the wood itself remains as strong and reliable as ever. However, for those who don’t want their teak furniture to lose its golden sheen, we recommend teak protector, a water-based alternative to teak oil which will stop water getting into the wood, helping to maintain its original colour.
Our teak furniture care range also includes teak cleaner, a specially formulated product that can be sponged onto teak furniture and washed off before protector or oil is applied, helping to restore the original colour.
We recommend our polished concrete furniture range for its long-lasting properties. However, concrete is a porous material, and prolonged exposure to moisture will eventually lead to softening, crumbling and cracking. Our concrete furniture wax offers a straightforward solution. Applied every six weeks, this paraffin-based wax will keep water out and stop the surface of your polished concrete furniture staining. The use of a furniture cover all year round will help to protect your garden furniture and prolong the life of the concrete and wooden frame.
