Furniture - Refinishing and Repair is your Search the List category for this - or, with probably less certainly regarding the quality of the work, a Handyman with pressure washer (have to be careful not to gouge/cut the wicker).


One thing to bear in mind - wicker rots readily if ti gets wet inside paint, so commonly wicker is refinished with a penetrating stain-sealer (which can be white or other colors inclulding natural stain colors) rather than "paint" as such. Generally that works better thn spray paint, because there are MANY points in wicker where the material is in contact with other pieces so paint cannot protect those points - leaving placed where the material can have direct contact with water, and also because of the contact points stays wet longer,promoting rot.


My recommendation - when the furniture is not in use, put under a deck umbrella canopy or pavilion or awning or draped rain shield which, if water repellent rather than truly waterproof, is not in direct contact with the furniture itself. In many cases even a heavy sheet draped from wall connection to the deck or patio, covering the furniture without touching it (which causes the water to "break through") will work for all but the most severe storms. This sort of protection can make the difference between maybe 3-6 year life and 20-30 year life for deck/lawn furniture.
