Cain Chair Repair - How to Care for Your Wicker Furniture

After you get your wicker furniture repaired with us, you must know how to care for it. A little bit of maintenance and a cleaning routine will go a long way when it comes to wicker furniture.

1. Keep it Covered: If you have outdoor wicker furniture, it's best to keep it covered when it's not in use. Having it covered helps protect the furniture from fading and getting damaged.
2. Soap & Water: When it comes to cleaning up your wicker furniture, soap and water will do the trick. We first recommend going over the furniture with a light vacuuming then gently using a soapy sponge or brush to scrub off any excess dirt.
3. Deep Detailed Clean: If you are looking for a deeper clean for your wicker furniture, you can use a mild oil-based soap such as Murphy's. To scrub in harder to reach places for a more detailed look, we recommend using an old toothbrush; it's sure to get the job done!

The Cane Chair Repair Process

When it comes to performing cane chair repair, several tools and materials are required to get the job done. Typically this involves a utility knife, needlenose pliers, scissors, spray paint, tacks, glue, and of course, wicker caning. Once we've gathered all the materials, we start by repairing any loose wrappings on the legs of the chair.

After the chair legs have been repaired, we move on to repairing broken strands on the body. Usually, we have to cut off any protruding strands with a utility knife and glue it down on the backside so that it's more hidden. Then we fill in any gaps with the new wicker caning material and glue it down so that the old blends with the new.

Once all of the damaged wicker has been replaced or repaired, it's time to bust out the spray paint. We make sure we get the best possible match with the color and lightly coat the cane chair so that everything blends in seamlessly.
