Wind Damage: Treasure Garden highly recommends that no umbrella, regardless of size or weight, ever be left unattended in the open position. In windy conditions, it is further recommended that umbrellas be closed, removed from their base, and stored, or laid horizontally. This will reduce the risk of damage to your umbrella, furniture, and other belongings or property. To ensure stability of your umbrella, please observe proper placement, and use sufficient weight (base). This catalog contains minimum recommendations for necessary weight; but this can vary, depending on the conditions in your particular area.
Rust: Rust is a natural part of the aging process of all Steel or Iron based materials and is therefore NOT considered a defect. Treasure Garden Cast Iron & Steel plate bases are designed to require minimum maintenance. Bases should be kept clean. Do not let dirt build up on the bases. Cleaning with mild soap and water, and seasonal touch-up of any scratches, chips or occasional rust seepage from crevices or hidden, un-finishable surfaces inherent in some designs is all that is required. Touch Up paint in matching frame colors are available through your retail dealer. Never leave bases standing in water. To keep your bases looking their best, you may wish to store them when not in use for an extended period of time.

The fabric can be cleaned without being removed from the umbrella. Simply brush off any loose dirt, etc., clean with warm water (no more than 100° F) and a cleaner such as our Upholstery & Fabric Cleaner (TGC-UFC-32) or a mild natural soap. Rinse thoroughly to remove cleaner. It may be necessary to re-apply a water repellent treatment, such as our Upholstery & Fabric Protector (TGC-UFP-32). When washing or cleaning, DO NOT SUBJECT TO EXCESSIVE HEAT as the fabric will shrink. DO NOT STEAM PRESS OR DRY IN ELECTRIC OR GAS DRYERS. Allow fabric to air dry.
