Care and cleaning for wrought iron lighting and furniture

Simply put, iron will rust when exposed to air and water.  The key to keeping your exterior wrought iron lights and furniture looking like new is just as simple:  keep the finish nick-free and maintain protection with occasional paint reapplication.  If you're in a humid or rainy environment (sorry Miami) you may need to do this more often, but the beauty of iron is that with minimal maintenance, it will last forever.
