Product Care Guide

LAVA STONE

CHARACTERISTICS

Honed with a matte finish, the visible veining highlights the unique character of each piece. With its natural durability, lava stone can live outside in a range of environments. Each piece has inherent variations in color, veining, texture and surface details. These characteristics should be expected and embraced. No two pieces will be alike.

CARE & MAINTENANCE  

  • Wash periodically with a clean, damp cloth. If necessary, a small amount of mild dishwashing liquid may be used.
  • Lava Stone has natural pitting that can collect debris; dust regularly or use a handheld vacuum, or a softbristled brush with water and mild soap.
  • Avoid the use of harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaning materials.
  •  The use of a re-sealer is recommended. Apply once a year or as needed.

 

RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Use placemats or trivets under hot items and coasters under drinks
  • Avoid spilling acidic substances such as wine, juice, coffee and tomato sauce.

  • Wipe spills immediately with a soft, dry cloth. If needed, use warm water and mild dish soap.

  • Lava stone can be nicked, scratched, chipped and stained. Avoid placing sharp or heavy objects on the surface.

  • Do not let water or other liquids sit on the surface for prolonged periods. Remove any potted plants or bowls after rain showers.

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.

 

OUTDOOR CUSHIONS  

The single element that ties all LANE VENTURE outdoor collections together is the unmatched superior seating that combines a variety of features making it comfortable, functional, durable and easy to clean. LANE VENTURE seating items are available with fabric cushions that feature a bottom drain cloth or all fabric covers. Because we understand that comfort is different for everyone, we offer two cushion core options so that LANE VENTURE will always be the best seat in the house. We strive to provide unsurpassed luxurious comfort that is easy to clean while staying durable and beautiful.

CARE & MAINTENANCE CUSHIONS & FABRICS

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 at home cleaning method first.

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 retreatment 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.

 

TEAK

FRAME CONSTRUCTION

LANE VENTURE uses only A-grade, plantation-raised teak. Teak is the best wood for luxury outdoor furniture due to its high oil content, which makes it stand up to extreme environmental conditions and insect and rot repellent. Our teak is responsibly sourced from re-forested teak plantations, meaning no natural teak forests are being damaged or diminished. We employ best-in-class construction techniques that include kiln drying, finger joinery and box joints. Together, all of this ensures that your product will withstand prolonged outdoor exposure.

 

FINISH

Natural Teak

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.  Natural teak shouldn’t be painted or sealed at home; it won’t adhere properly and will eventually peel off.

 

Pre-finished Teak

The Paloma finish is hand applied in a multi-step process that starts with wire brushing to enhance the natural wood grain and emulates a weathered look. As with any painted finish, it will wear over time. Subtle fading in color and wear of the finish may occur. This is normal. Both the solid teak frame and the applied finish will patina over time and eventually blend for a consistent look.

CARE & MAINTENANCE - FRAMES

Teak expands and contracts with changes in the environment. This movement can cause hairline cracks in the wood and at joint locations. This does not affect the structural integrity of the product and is not grounds for replacement. Due to the high oil content of teak wood, some of it will come to the surface of the product. This appears sometimes as streaks or spots that are brown or red in color. This is natural and unavoidable. As the oil evaporates over a period of months, it will subside. During this oil surfacing, you may notice oil stains on your cushions, particularly if they are light in color. The use of a wood protector will help mitigate some of the oil surfacing and fabric staining.

CLEANING

Minimal maintenance is required to keep teak wood looking good. Dust and dirt can collect on the furniture, and over time may turn into mildew.   

Depending on your environment, cleaning is suggested every 3-6 months. Routine cleaning is recommended every 3 months for warm, humid environments, and every 6 months for cool, dry climates.

Periodically clean your furniture using water and a mild cleanser such as dish soap and a soft nylon brush.  You may also use a teak cleaner, available through your local LANE VENTURE retailer. 

WOVEN

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.

HIGH PRESSURE LAMINATE

FRAME CONSTRUCTION & CHARACTERISTICS

High Pressure Laminate or HPL tabletops are highly durable and resistant to scratches, impact, and general wear and tear. They can withstand heavy daily use, making them suitable for both residential and commercial environments.

  • Excellent moisture resistance, making them suitable for use in areas with high humidity or occasional exposure to liquids.
  • Easy to clean and maintain.
  • The non-porous nature prevents the absorption of dirt or liquids, simplifying the cleaning process.

CARE & MAINTENANCE

Minimal maintenance is required to keep HPL tops 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 as they may damage the surface.

RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Wipe up spills promptly to prevent staining or potential damage. Use a damp cloth or sponge to gently blot the spill, and then dry the area thoroughly.
  • Although HPL surfaces are heat-resistant, it’s advisable to use trivets, hot pads, or coasters under hot cookware, dishes, or utensils. This precautionary measure helps to protect the surface from potential heat damage.
  • Use placemats or tablecloths when placing objects with rough or sharp edges on the table.
  • Do not let water or other liquids sit on the surface for prolonged periods. Remove any potted plants or bowls after rain showers.
  • Avoid dragging or sliding heavy or sharp objects across the tabletop, as they may cause scratches or abrasions.
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals, solvents, or abrasive cleaners on the HPL surface, as they may damage the protective layer or affect the appearance of the tabletop. Stick to mild, non-abrasive cleaners specifically designed for laminate surfaces.
