The maintenance of garden furniture is the basis of a well-organized and pleasant outdoor space to live in any season, not just in summer.
When we talk about the maintenance of garden furniture we can refer to seasonal treatments or to a more generic type, such as restoration, renovation, decoration or protective treatments for outdoor furniture.
So let's see what the phases are for each single maintenance step:
Preparation is the first step and can consist of simply cleaning the substrate to remove dust or dirt up to stripping old finishes before proceeding with the next steps.
Speaking of "simple cleaning" we must not think that we can proceed in a superficial or approximate way.
Using the right product allows you to perform an optimal treatment without having to repeat the work and above all without affecting the final result.
Borma Wachs has developed specific products for the preparation of the substrate, also suitable for tropical essences and for the removal of stubborn dirt. Failure to properly clean the wood would simply leave us with stained, unsightly furniture that needs more work very quickly.
To evaluate the intensity of the treatment on a case-by-case basis, it is useful to consult the technical data sheets of the preparation products which also include different options for removing old paints.
The pre-treatment phase serves to make the base suitable for subsequent processing. Given the great variety of treatments that may be necessary for garden furniture, Borma Wachs has developed a complete range, so as to satisfy every need and solve the most common but also the most challenging problems.
The pre-treatment can be based on oil, water or solvent to meet compatibility requirements of each subsequent application of products. The different solutions for the pre-treatment include impregnating, insulating, pore-filling, pesticide and protective products.
The technical data sheets are very useful in this case. Our sheets contain particular details, such as certification of safety for children, protection from UV rays and also include the range of colours available, in order to obtain an appropriate result also from an aesthetic point of view.
The maintenance of garden furniture can also become an excellent opportunity to revitalise outdoor furniture thanks to the solutions for staining and decorating the wood.
These wooden objects are exposed to bad weather, to sudden changes in temperature and humidity and to the wearing action of UV rays: if you want to proceed with colouring and decorating your garden furniture it is necessary to use suitable products that have been designed precisely for the environmental conditions present outdoors.
The solutions for staining and for decorating garden furniture include products that satisfy even the most technically extreme requirements.
Together with oil-, water- and solvent-based decorative finishes, available in dozens of colours, we also offer professional solutions created for application on thermo-treated wood, for wood exposed to stress that requires a high elasticity of the finish, as well as for nautical use.
In addition to the specific technical prerogatives, Borma Wachs also offers customizable aesthetic options not only through the colour range but also in terms of the final effect, visual and tactile, thanks to a choice of finishes that ranges from the naturalness of the water base to the density of waxed solutions.
Here we come to the maintenance in the strict sense of the garden furniture. Protective wood treatments are available in three different versions: oil, water and solvent. This allows you to intervene on any surface already treated, obtaining an optimal result, without waste and without unwanted effects due to the incompatibility or ineffectiveness of the treatments.
Even maintenance, or the periodic care of garden furniture, sees Borma Wachs at the forefront for quality and completeness of the range.
Garden furniture maintenance products include the ideal detergents for the specific needs of the outdoors but also more particular products.
For example, we have the treatment for naturally weathered greyed wood, which cleans the support bringing back its original color. Then there are regenerating oil treatments, also available in the very practical spray format, which heal, regenerate and protect wood affected by bad weather.
We consider our range complete when we come to offer not only products for the actual maintenance of garden furniture, but also when we provide a selection of technical accessories.
The final result, its quality, beauty and durability, in fact, also depend on the use of the right accessories.
