Care + Maintenance for Emeco Occasional Table

The Emeco Occasional tables are made by hand. Each piece is unique with subtle differences.

The finish is brushed, anodized aluminum. Anodizing changes the aluminum surface to aluminum oxide, a super-strong material. Anodized aluminum is corrosion-proof and can be used outdoors, however we suggest cleaning with soap and water every two weeks to remove grit and other air pollutants that can pit the surface.

Daily cleaning
To keep your table looking beautiful, clean with soap and water, and dry with a soft cloth. You can also use Windex®, Formula 409® or similar spray cleaner, with or without bleach followed by a lint free towel. Wash any film or residue with hot water. Do not use Stainless Steel cleaner on any aluminum furniture. For Heavy-duty dirt or oil use a very hot water and strong soap, followed by light scrubbing in the direction of the aluminum grain with a soft bristled brush or damp Scotchbrite® pad.

Scuffmarks
Light scrubbing in the direction of the aluminum grain with a Scotchbrite® pad.

Stains
Treat the stain with the appropriate cleaner (i.e. bleach for coffee, paint thinner for paint) leave the cleaner sit on the stain until the stain is dissolved, then follow the instructions for heavy duty dirt.
