Introduction - Classy Shade's products are crafted from stainless steel and double-layer powder-coated quality steel to resist environmental damage. However, regular care and proper storage can enhance their lifespan and keep them looking brand new. This comprehensive guide will walk you through how to maintain and store your Classy Shade garden furnishings correctly.

Caring for Your Classy Shade Products

Our garden furnishings require regular cleaning to keep them in the best condition. If they get dusty or dirty, consider the following steps:

  • Weekly Brushing: Use a firm brush to clean the powder-coated components or fabric parts weekly.

  • Wipe with Damp Cloth: For stubborn dirt on powder-coated surfaces, a damp cloth can come in handy.

  • Canopy Cleaning: If the canopy gets dirty, remove it from the frame and spot clean with a light mild soap and water. After cleaning, replace the canopy onto the frame. For a thorough wash, use a light load, cold water, mild or no detergent, and sun dry. However, don't wash special order painted or special fabric canopies.

  • Replacing Deteriorated Canopy: If the canopy has deteriorated significantly, it may need replacing. Contact Classy Shade to ensure you get the right size and color.

  • Planter Sculptures and Ornaments: Periodically clean the planter sculptures and the mirrored panels of the ornaments, being careful not to dislodge the panels from their holding socket.

  • Battery Replacement: Don't forget to replace the batteries in your umbrella lamp periodically.

Storing Your Classy Shade Products

Proper storage of your Classy Shade products ensures their longevity and aesthetic appeal. If you decide to store your products, here's what to do:

  • Clean and Dry: Before storage, make sure your Classy Shade products are clean and dry to avoid mildew.

  • Closing the Product: Always close the Classy Shade product before storing it.

  • Original Packaging: Use the original product bag and box for storage to maintain the product's shape and integrity.

  • Storage Location: Store the container in a clean, dry location to prevent moisture damage.

  • Prevent Mildew and Rust: Consider using moisture-reducing agents within the container to help prevent mildew and possible rust.


A little bit of regular maintenance goes a long way in extending the life of your Classy Shade products. By following the guidelines provided, you can ensure your garden furnishings remain vibrant and functional for many seasons. Enjoy the longevity and beauty of your Classy Shade products with proper care and storage.
