Product Care


Dixie Seating Company furniture is made from solid Ash, Poplar and Hickory hardwoods. These natural woods are subject to the effects of the environment and should be properly used and cared for. Please follow these product care instructions to ensure the longevity of your Dixie Seating Company product:

Natural Woods

Dixie Seating Company uses natural hardwoods in the construction of each of our pieces. It is important to note that our wood has not been treated with any chemicals and should NOT be exposed to outdoor elements for any length of time. Dixie Seating Company products should be used in the following conditions:

Indoor

Covered Porch Only (While in Use. If not in use, cover or bring indoors to protect the wood).

All woods are susceptible to rot and decay if left in damp, humid, and shady areas for a long time. Exposure to chemicals including solvents and chlorine, and exposure to common items such as alcoholic beverages, plants and flower nectar, as well as hot items (off of a grill, for example) can permanently stain and damage wood surfaces. Items should be checked every three months to make sure the fasteners are tight and the wood shows no sign of deterioration.

Caring for the Finish

The lifespan for any wooden patio furniture depends greatly on the weather it is exposed to. Properly maintaining your wooden furniture can make it last for many years and maximize your investment.

The most important part of caring for the finish of your product is to know what type of finish is on our products. Dixie Seating Company uses a two part catalyzed varnish. Varnishes are a hard, oil-based, moisture resistant finish.

Please note that although our products are finished in a catalyzed varnish, they are subject to darkening and lightening over time if exposed to an outdoor environment.

How-To Clean Your Product

The best method to keep your products looking good is to use a very mild soap (like a Murphy’s Oil soap) and a DAMP cloth. It is recommended that you DO NOT let water sit on the product or spray the product with a pressure washer or hose. The product should then be dried with a dry soft cloth.
