With proper care, your wrought iron furniture is designed to last a lifetime  Here are some helpful tips on keeping your furniture looking great:

Regular Cleaning Regularly clean your wrought iron furniture with warm soapy water that is completely free of abrasive cleaners. Avoid abrasive cleaners as they will damage the finish on your beautiful furniture.

Intense Cleaning and Rust Stains If your furniture has been neglected for a while and you notice some rust stains, it is time for intense cleaning.To accomplish this, you will need sandpaper and a touch up paint kit. Gently sand the rust spots and wipe with a cloth and mild liquid soap and water. Manufacturers often include a paint kit when you purchase wrought iron furniture. If not, you can purchase the paint kits at hardware stores.

Preventative Care Wrought iron pieces that people keep indoors, such as wrought iron beds, chairs, kitchen furniture, lighting, etc. can be cared for and cleaned quite easily.  Use a lint-free soft cloth and dust. In addition, you can periodically apply furniture or car wax to clean and maintain the finish on the wrought iron. You can expect wrought iron furniture kept outside to rust after being exposed to moisture. Furniture covers are available to help prevent rust but are not a guarantee that moisture will not seep in.
