Product Care Guide

Cushions and Upholstery

Outdoor Fabrics

Select from hundreds of gorgeous fabrics specifically designed for outdoor use. These fabrics are domestically woven and bleach-cleanable, and many are exclusively available at Lane Venture. Woven from the highest quality, fade-resistant fibers, the selection is unmatched in style and performance.

WeatherMaster Ultimate Outdoor Cushion

The single element that ties all of our outdoor collections together is the unique drainable cushion that combines a variety of features making it comfortable, functional, durable and easy to clean. Additionally, all LANE VENTURE seating items are available with firm or reversible cushion options. This combination of features provides unsurpassed luxurious comfort that is easy to clean while staying durable and beautiful.

What makes the WeatherMaster Ultimate Outdoor Cushion better than all the rest?

It combines the soft seating durability of a drainable all-weather fiber cushion with the comfort and longevity of spring coil seating.

Fiber is encased in polyethylene netting which improves air flow for quick drying and minimizes the opportunity for mold and mildew growth.

  • Coils are made of 302 grade stainless steel which is the same grade that is used for high end grill and appliance construction.
  • It offers better tensile strength than the more common 304 grade and maintains superior strength and performance year after year.
  • 302 grade stainless steel will not rust or corrode and is resistant to solvents, acids and chemicals. Finally, individually wrapped coils eliminate noise and allow coils to work independently.
  • Thermally bonded premium quality fiber and stainless stell coils encased in waterproof ticking provides unsurpassed cushion comfort and durability.
  • It offers high performance that is great for using in high traffic areas.
  • Our cushion exceeds industry standards for cushion resiliency and shows no substantial loss of loft, support or comfort after repeated tests.

Care & Maintenance - Slipcovers and Fully Upholstered

Regular cleaning is the best way to keep cushions and fabrics looking good. Periodically brush off dirt before it becomes embedded in the fabrics and wipe up spills immediately for best results. When you have a new stain, try this cleaning method first.

  • Blot (don't rub) liquid spills with a clean, dry cloth. For oil-based spills, apply an absorbent such as corn starch, then remove with a straight edge.
  • Spray on a mild cleaning solution of soap (such as Dawn or Woolite) and water; use a sponge or very soft bristle brush to lightly agitate the stain.
  • Rinse the fabric thoroughly to remove all soap residue.
  • Air dry. DO NOT PUT CUSHION CASING OR SLIPCOVER IN A DRYER.

Fabrics

  • At home cleaning is simple to maintain a fabric's fresh appearance. However, if cleaning requires the assistance of a professional cleaner, be sure to inquire about a firm's experience working with outdoor fabrics and knowledge of cleaning and re-treatment requirements.

Removing Mold and Mildew

LANE VENTURE fabrics do not promote mildew growth; however, mildew may grow on accumulated dirt if it's not removed from the cushions. To remove mold or mildew:

  • Prepare a solution of 1 cup of bleach and one fourth cup mild soap per gallon of water.
  • Spray on entire area and allow to soak into the fabric for 15 minutes.
  • Clean entire surface area with a sponge, clean towel or very soft bristle brush.
  • Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residue.
  • Air dry. DO NOT PUT CUSHION CASING OR SLIPCOVER IN A DRYER.
  • For severe mold/mildew growth, bleach quantities may be increased.
  • It is best to clean the entire surface area of the fabric to avoid water rings and stains.

 

Aluminum

Frame Construction

Lane Venture aluminum products are constructed of superior extruded and cast aluminum. Fixtures and jigs specially designed for each collection are used to assure uniform frame sizing during production. Such measures of quality ensure strong, durable and comfortable frames.

Finish

Protected by the latest powder-coat finish technology, all LANE VENTURE finishes are applied over premium grade aluminum. Continuous testing for the life of a collection in our on-site weathering facility allows us to develop maximum protection from the effects of sunlight, temperature and environmental factors.

Care & Maintenance - Frames

Minimal maintenance is required to keep your aluminum furniture looking fresh. Periodically wash with soft cloth, mild soap and water. Rinse well. Dry with a soft towel or let air dry. Avoid harsh abrasive cleaners.

Hand-Woven Synthetic Wicker

Frame Construction

Each piece of synthetic wicker is hand woven by experienced artisans over a strong powder-coated aluminum frame. Lane Venture products feature the highest grade of durable, UV-resistant polyethylene (PE) fibers. Fixtures and jigs specially designed for each collection are used to assure uniform frame sizing during production.

Finish

By combining synthetic fibers of differing textures and unique colors during the weaving process, LANE VENTURE is able to achieve a unique richness and depth that gives each collection the look and feel of a natural product. And since the color goes all the way through the fiber, you can be assured that it will remain consistent for many years.

Care & Maintenance - Frames

Minimal maintenance is required to keep your hand-woven synthetic wicker furniture looking fresh. Periodically wash with soft cloth, mild soap and water. Rinse well. Dry with a soft towel or let air dry. Avoid harsh abrasive cleaners.

Teak

Frame Construction

Slow-growing and plantation raised, LANE VENTURE uses only the finest grade of this most valuable tropical hardwood for its beautiful furniture. Kiln drying and hand-crafted construction techniques, including doweled mortise, finger joinery, and box joints, ensure that your frames will hold up even after prolonged outdoor exposure.

Finish

Teak is a low maintenance wood, and we recommend that you allow your furniture to age naturally. Its close, tight grain and abundance of natural oils make teak hard- wearing and highly resistant to rotting, sunshine, snow and rain. After prolonged exposure, teak's original golden honey color will begin to transition to a soft and silvery gray.

Care & Maintenance - Frames

Minimal maintenance is required to keep teak wood looking good. Periodically clean your furniture with a teak cleaner, available through your local LANE VENTURE retailer. Because of the high oil content of this wood, teak shouldn't be painted or sealed: it won't adhere properly and will eventually peel off. If you wish to keep the warm golden color of new teak, you will need to routinely re-apply a teak sealer for continuous coverage.
