Care and maintenance of Crema Outdoor products

Crema Outdoor solutions stand out for the high quality of their materials. Aluminum frames, stainless steel components, and acrylic fabric covers: every part of our products ensures excellent resistance to wear and weather conditions.

Our products are designed for longevity, but proper maintenance of all their components can further extend their life. How? In this article, we’ll guide you step by step on how to care for your Crema Outdoor products!

Cleaning umbrellas, gazebos, and garden furniture

The first step in extending the life of your umbrella is to regularly clean the fabric cover. It’s quite simple:

  • Use a brush to remove dust, dirt, and any debris like leaves or twigs.
  • Prepare a solution of lukewarm water and a pH-neutral detergent to clean stubborn stains on the fabric.
  • Thoroughly rinse the fabric with clean water and let it dry completely outdoors, preferably under the sun.

For the umbrella frame, simply use a damp cloth to wipe off any accumulated dirt on the pole and ribs. Remember not to use harsh chemicals, as they could damage the steel parts. You can follow the same process to clean gazebos and other garden furniture.

Protecting Crema Outdoor products

Umbrellas and gazebos are mostly used during the summer, but what about winter? During colder seasons, store your umbrellas or garden furniture in dry places, sheltered from the elements.

At Crema Outdoor, we also offer handy umbrella covers that provide complete protection from the weather. Before covering it for the winter, ensure the umbrella is thoroughly dry to prevent mold growth.

Gazebos, on the other hand, are more durable than other temporary solutions. However, it’s still advisable to take precautions to protect the gazebo during the winter, especially if harsh weather or adverse conditions are expected. Remove canopies and curtains and cover the gazebo with a tarp to avoid damage.

Replacing the fabric of umbrellas and sunbeds

Finally, it’s good practice to periodically inspect umbrellas and sunbeds for any damages. In case of noticeable wear, it’s advisable to promptly replace the fabric and perform any necessary repairs.

At Crema Outdoor, we offer customers a maintenance and repair service where we provide:

  • Inspection and repair of the sunbed’s and umbrella’s metallic and mechanical components.
  • Repair of damaged but still usable fabrics and mending of any minor tears or holes.
  • Replacement of worn-out fabrics.

With these simple precautions, you can enjoy the beauty of Crema Outdoor products for a long time!
