You can have all sorts of different types of wicker furniture such as wicker coffee tables and chairs, wicker breakfast table, wicker racks, and much more. The best part of all, wicker furniture is suitable for both the indoor as well as outdoor area. In order to maintain your wicker furniture for years amount of service, you should regularly apply easy care for your furniture. Here are some tips on how to care for your wicker furniture:

1.Never leave wicker furniture out in direct sunlight for a prolonged period of time. Harsh sunlight will cause the weave to dry and crack.
2.Try to maintain humidity levels within your home. In case of too much humidity wicker furniture will absorb some moisture and you may find mould or mildew growing on it. This leaves ugly patches and ultimately the furniture warps, bends and then snaps. In case of too much dryness too the reeds may split. So, if you live in a place that is very dry, you may need to wipe regularly with a damp cloth.
3.Vacuuming regularly is the best way to keep your wicker furniture clean. Use the soft brush attachment of the vacuum to reach the dust settled down between the weaves. Otherwise you can wipe the furniture regularly with a soft cloth. Reach the nooks and crannies with an old toothbrush or a paint brush. Simultaneously check for splits and holes.
4.If your wicker set has collected too much dust you can use a water spray hose to wash it. Use bleach in water and scrub with a soft brush to remove mould. Wipe dry thoroughly after this and let dry in shade. But be sure that your wicker is not a paper fiber wicker or you will be left with very big mess.
5.Never let anyone sit on wet or damp wicker furniture. The reeds bend with the weight and the shape can be irreparably damaged.
6.Spills should be immediately wiped with a damp cloth otherwise it gets absorbed into the material. It also encourages growth of mildew.
7.If you have pets at home you are more than likely to find pet hairs in the crevices of your furniture. Pay special attention to these places when you vacuum. And if you still cant reach them use tweezers or a small brush.
