Care & Maintenance

Unwrapping Products

Please take the greatest of care when unwrapping your furniture so as not to damage it in any way. Marks from knives and scissors, scratches from staples or from placing tabletops on the ground, etc., are not covered under the Fermob guarantee.

Maintenance and Cleaning

Maintenance is Key to the longevity of your furniture. Clean Metal Surfaces, particularly tables, when debris builds on surfaces or just when you want to admire its beautiful color. Bird droppings, sap, leaves (organic substances) and other potentially corrosive substances should be cleaned as soon as noticed. To prevent scratches and water retention, we recommend that you do not place decorative objects or flowerpots on tables.

To clean, use a gentle, naturally based all-purpose cleaner and a smooth cloth or sponge. Gently dust beforehand to avoid scratches due to existing rough particles. You can also ocassionally use a bit of pure mineral oil to give your Fermob a clear coat that will both brighten and provide a gentle seal of protection.

Many Fermob designs are constructed of Steel. Treat these pieces like you would a car. Steel will rust once the outer paint layers are compromised or scratched through. If this occurs, contact your local dealer and they can order a paint pen (to fill nicks and scratches), or a spray can (to cover larger areas). Keep in mind that by the nature of the material, Steel rusts. The timing will depend on the care and enviroment (humid or salty air speeds up this process).

Never leave your Fermob under a cover or non-breathing material such as a tarp. This will promote the deterioration of the finish. Fermob is happiest out in the open or stored away in a dry location with good air circulation.

careful inspection

All our products are delivered with pads that protect the furniture feet as well as floor surfaces. These pads prevent any degradation or damage to the feet resulting from contact with the ground, which can sometimes be damp or harsh. We recommend that you replace any lost pads by ordering a new set from your Fermob dealer.

You should not allow water to accumulate on or around your furniture, especially around the feet and pads.

careful inspection

Textrol® Treated Wood

Some Fermob furniture includes wood treated with Textrol® to protect it from the weather. By its very nature, wood requires special care: a wood seal such as Textrol® should be regularly applied, with the prior application of a wood cleaner such as Net-Trol® if necessary.

Tabletops should not be covered with plastic sheeting: the chemical components in this type of material can, over time, alter the appearance of the paint as well as its protective anti-corrosion and anti-UV properties.

Furniture that features OTF

OTF (Outdoor Technical Fabric) should be protected from potential damage from contact with sharp objects or sources of heat such as cigarettes.

Fermob furniture is designed and manufactured using recycled and recyclable materials. To help us protect the environment, please remember to take your packaging and any old unwanted furniture to your local waste disposal center for recycling.

Fermob products have a 2 or 3 year structural warranty. If your products experience structural issues within this period, immediately contact your local dealer
