•    Follow this simple procedure to clean cane furniture: rub with sandpaper, use a vacuum cleaner and finally wash with soap water. This simple process will show you the difference.

•    If you wish to use water on furniture use only damp cloth or sponge. Even these should be strained well so that only less dampness is present in them that is good enough to clean the dust. Don’t add water directly as cane is sensitive to water.

•    The other mandate rule to follow is not to sit on damp furniture. If you sit chances are high that the bamboo may get extended and lose its stiffness and so the chances of breakage are also high.

•    When the furniture gets spider webs use a brush dipped in a soap water and rub to clean it. Soon after cleaning allow the furniture to dry. Don’t directly expose to sunlight to dry the furniture.

•    Never ever allow the furniture to expose to neither sun nor rain as both will weaken them. This particular furniture is more sensitive to water and sun in comparison to any other kind of furniture.

•    By any chance if the furniture gets cracks or is broken immediately start repairing it. Cane furniture repairs are thorough when the damaged part is rubbed with fine sand paper and wax applied on it. This way you can avoid further damage.

•    If you wish to color the cane furniture. First coat with a single layer, allow it to dry properly and once you are sure it has dried well, coat a second layer.
