Maintaining Your Outdoor Furniture Throughout the Seasons

Regularly maintain your outdoor furniture so that you can have one of the most welcoming outdoor living spaces every season.

Your porch, patio, and deck are often your outdoor living space where you go for relaxation, entertainment, gatherings, activities, and much more. Outdoor furniture provides your outdoor living space with comfort and function. After a few seasons, your outdoor furniture begins to show its age with wear and tear, displaying rusting, rotting, cracking, mildew, and stains accumulated by the varying outdoor elements. Although many believe snow and rain are the biggest threats to their outdoor furniture, extreme heat and sun exposure can also damage outdoor furniture impacting your outdoor living. By regularly and adequately maintaining your outdoor furniture, you can have one of the most welcoming outdoor living spaces every season. The tips below are key in helping you maintain your outdoor furniture year-round so that it can endure for many seasons to come.

Reading Your Outdoor Furniture Manual

Often your outdoor furniture will come with manuals or labels that provide information on the materials of your outdoor furniture, the conditions it can withstand, and the necessary precautions and steps to take to service, maintain, and clean it.

Checking Your Outdoor Furniture Regularly

Making a habit of regularly checking your furniture allows you to notice signs of minor issues such as dirt and damage before major issues beyond cleaning and repair. After a thorough inspection, it is suggested that you act on the issues noted immediately, eliminating them before they spread and ruin your whole outdoor furniture set.

Cleaning Your Outdoor Furniture Regularly

Cleaning your outdoor furniture is one of the best ways to maintain your outdoor furniture throughout the seasons. When cleaning your outdoor furniture, it’s important to avoid harsh cleaners and cleaning tools. Regularly cleaning your outdoor furniture prevents the build-up of dirt, mildew, and mold from accumulating on your furniture and its cushions.

Covering Your Outdoor Furniture

It is recommended to invest in a high-quality furniture cover that can protect your outdoor furniture from the harsh outdoor climate and elements. Covering your outdoor furniture when it’s not in use guarantees the cleanliness and longevity of your outdoor furniture.
