Protect Your Investment
When you purchase a Hauser product you are buying furniture that will stand the test of time. As with any investment it is necessary to service and take care of your product. Below are some suggestions on how to maintain your furniture.
No matter the material, we recommend purchasing high-quality furniture covers to help extend the life of your investment. Hauser brand covers are made from durable water resistant & breathable fabrics that protect your furniture from the elements and mildew.
General cleaning and maintenance of your furniture is also recommended. To make this easy we have an eco-friendly set of cleaners and protectors, available online & in-store.

Hauser acrylic fabrics can be cleaned by using a mild detergent and soft brush. Do not use aggressive brushing action. In the case of stubborn stains and mildew a Hauser cleaner is available. Cushions will dry much faster if they are tilted onto their side. For stubborn stains & to protect your fabric use our Fabric Cleaner and Protector.
Textilene is a mesh fabric woven of strong polyester yarns that are individually coated with PVC, specifically designed for outdoor use. This product is the best choice for sling furniture because it is elegant, strong and very durable to outdoor exposure.
By following these simple care and cleaning steps, your sling fabrics will maintain their looks for many years:
Prevention: One of the best ways to keep Textilene fabrics looking new and to delay the need for deep or vigorous cleanings is to hose the fabric off on a monthly basis with clear water. This practice will eliminate the need for more frequent vigorous cleanings. In most environments, a thorough cleaning will be needed every two to three years. These fabrics can be cleaned while still on a frame or they can be removed for cleaning.
Powder coating adds a weather-resistant and durable finish to aluminum products. To maintain your aluminum furniture routine washing is recommended.. For added protection apply a reliable spray on car wax after cleaning to repel moisture and restore luster to the finish.

Teak is a very durable tropical hardwood that is easy to care for, and in the absence of regular cleaning will over time fade from is natural honey-like colour to a silver-grey.
We recommend periodically cleaning your teak products. To clean your teak & prevent mildew build up from dirt we recommend our Teak Cleaner. If the wood grain stands up a bit after cleaning, lightly sand down the surface with fine sandpaper.
To maintain honey colour
To clean & maintain the natural honey colour we recommend cleaning and protecting your teak furniture with our Hauser Teak Care Kit. A protective coating can be applied at the time of purchase and maintained regularly following the instructions provided in the kit.
Some teak is first vigorously brushed to obtain a textured and seasoned finish. After a coat of waterproofing primer, five coats of grey finish are applied. This process protects the wood against the weather, UV’s and various stains such as wine, coffee or oil and therefore requires little maintenance.
Imperfections such as hairline cracks may develop over time. If exposed to the elements, the finish will fade and wear through, exposing unfinished teak. Exposed teak will begin to acquire a silver-grey patina which is typical of unfinished teak.
Follow the steps below to maintain your Finished teak:
Teak FAQ: What are the black dots on my teak furniture? Although teak will not mildew, mildew sometimes grows on dirt and other foreign substances that have not been removed from the wood. This occurs more commonly in warm, humid climates. If this happens, please follow standard cleaning instructions immediately.
