Wrought iron is a low maintenance material. It does not call for frequent dusting and can be easily moved around the house, as opposed to regular wooden furniture, which is usually bulky.

The usual problem that afflicts this kind of furniture is rust. However, some precautionary measures can be taken to keep it in top form.

Primer and paint will protect it from weather damage. If rust has begun to manifest, scrub the rust lightly with a wire brush. Scrub hard enough to remove the rust flakes, but be careful not to scratch the paint except the rust is so bad that repainting will be done. For rust stains but no flakes, dip a very fine steel wool pad into kerosene, and brush out the stains.
