CLEANING

Maintenance & Cleaning of Terrazzo Furniture & Planters

UV and weather influence the surface of Terrazzo over time, the surface may dry out and fade the colour. Regular treatment of Terrazzo with our special Cadix Stain Stop Plus treatment and Terrazzo Ink will maintain & revive Terrazzo.

Avoid the use of aggressive detergents and contact with substances containing acids.

Sharp objects will scratch the surface of Terrazzo

Cleaning Terrazzo

To clean Terrazzo use warm water and soft soap (Linseed oil based)

Stains that can't be removed by washing and polishing can be removed with fine sanding paper. DO remember to polish and impregnate with Cadix Stain Stop Plus and Cadix Terrazzo Ink after sanding it.

For Terrazzo Repairs, a Terrazzo Repair Kit is available.

Care Instructions and Product Information:

Luna Metal Planters

Our Luna range has been constructed and treated to the highest standard and is frost resistant when drained properly.

We recommend to fill the bottom of the pot up with bricks, stone, gravel or similar.

Ensure the drainage hole does not get blocked, this is best achieved by placing the pot off the ground.

Use good potting compost to ensure optimal drainage

In time, UV and weather influences will change the colour and finish of the product in a natural way.

To clean this product you may use linseed or baby oil or water.

Steel products are subject to corrosion. Painting the inside of the container will prolong product life

If used indoors, the product must be sealed or placed in a saucer. To avoid possible problems with condensation on delicate floors the product must be raised above the floor so air can circulate, or must be placed on insulating material, for example polystyrene.


Lux Planters

Like Terrazzo, this product is handmade of crushed granite, and is highly polished. Instead of cement, our Lux range uses polyester as a binding agent for improved strength and fibreglass for a stable construction. The result is a lightweight product without compromise to design and finish.

Lux planters are frost proof when drained properly.

Cleaning Lux Planters:
Use warm water and a soft cloth or sponge.

Potting Lux Planters:
We recommend to fill the bottom of the pot up with bricks, stone or gravel or similar.

Ensure the drainage hole does not get blocked; this is best achieved by placing the pot off the ground.

Use good potting compost to ensure good drainage.


Oil Burners and Lamps
