Kwila furniture, like most timber furniture, just needs to be wiped down and oiled regularly to maintain its appearance.
If left without oiling, kwila timber furniture will last many years but will fade out to a silver-grey colour. Kwila timber is very durable and this fading does not affect the quality, only the appearance.
To prevent fading to maintain the timber’s bright vibrant colour, it is recommended that you oil your kwila outdoor furniture regularly. There are a variety of oils available depending on what features are important to you – whether you want it to last longer or be easier to apply and re-apply, for example some oils need to be removed completely before the new layer can be added, while others only need a quick wipe down before being ready for the next layer. Kwila furniture is known for its high oil content which makes it naturally impervious to insects and most weather conditions. So, if you chose to oil your furniture in order to keep the natural colouring, make sure to use an oil that works well with kwila’s natural oils.
Tip! – Check all nuts, bolts and fasteners periodically as over time the timber can move and the nuts and bolts can become loose.
