Care of your Ventura patio furniture
As with most patio furniture sets with cushions, storage will be needed. Keeping your set looking new will just involve cleaning with a mild soap and water.
Do not use any harsh chemicals on powder coated surfaces, as this will result in peeling and discoloration on the surfaces. Even glass cleaners are harsh enough to be tough on these types of surfaces.
