Acacia is a plantation grown hardwood, high in oil content. It is resistant to weather, rotting, and bug infestation. Acacia will eventually weather to gray naturally. During the first stages of the weathering process, surface roughness or cracking may occur. This will subside and become smooth over time.
The Acacia collections have been pre-treated with a penetrating oil stain that enhances the grain. The oil stain provides additional protection against the elements, as well as contains UV inhibitors and fungicide. A seasonal cleaning may still be desired. Rinse the furniture and use a sponge or soft bristle brush to scrub the furniture with a mild cleaning solution. Lastly, rinse the furniture with fresh water. To maintain the original finish, reapplication of a high quality oil is recommended. Paint or any products with Polyurethane are not recommended, as application of these products will void the warranty.
