How to clean Wicker Furniture

Spring Cleaning time…just had an email from a client wondering how to clean her wicker furniture.  Thought I’d share how to clean wicker in a blog post.  It’s very easy and something you can do right at home.

Untreated wicker should be kept inside during inclement weather.  For routine cleaning use the upholstery attachment of your vacuum cleaner or a feather duster.  In the winter, dryness may cause it to crack, so wipe a damp sponge occasionally or give it a light coating of lemon oil.    Once a year, if a piece has no wooden parts, scrub it with warm water and detergent, spray it with a garden hose, or put it under a shower.  Dry it as quick as possible by putting it in the sun or drying it with a hair dryer or floor fan.  Don’t sit on it until it is thoroughly dry.

Of course if you are in our service area and would like us to help you clean your wicker or help with your spring deep cleaning we can come out and give you a free estimate and take care of all your cleaning needs.   We can do everything from cleaning your carpet, upholstery, area rugs, ducts or tile & grout.
