Outdoor furniture is one of the most popular products in the market today. It is made to be durable yet comfortable for your guests. But if it gets dirty, stained or damaged, you may need to replace it. It is important to protect your outdoor furniture from the elements. Here are 4 tips that will keep your outdoor furniture clean and protected:
Protect It From Rain
If you want to protect your furniture from rain, here are some tips on how to do that. First, make sure that your furniture is well-drained so that water will drain away from the wood easily. This will help prevent rotting and cracking of the wood. Second, use a sealant on your furniture to help protect it from rain and moisture. Third, cover the top part of your furniture with a sheet of plastic or a tarp so that water cannot pool up there and damage it further. Finally, consider using an umbrella stand in front of your patio table to hold an umbrella over it to protect it from the rain.
You can also choose to invest in a simple fabric cover that can be easily attached to the frame of your outdoor furniture and protects it from the elements, so you can still enjoy its beauty and functionality. There are many different styles of covers available, including ones with zippered openings for ventilation and ones that zip close completely around the frame of your furniture so that nothing protrudes through them (although this may make your furniture more difficult to move around).
A canopy offers similar protection as a cover, but also adds color, texture, style and privacy to your yard or garden area. There are many different styles available and they come in many different materials such as canvas, vinyl or even PVC piping covered in weather-resistant fabric like canvas or burlap. They can be used indoors as well as outdoors depending on their size and how you want them positioned over your furniture.
Use a good quality cleaner
Don’t use cheap products on your furniture because they will eventually wear down the finish and cause stains or damage it in other ways. You want to make sure that you use a good quality cleaner that will not harm the surface of your furniture.
Wash often, but don’t overdo it. You should wash your furniture at least once a week, if possible, but avoid washing it every day unless you have time for multiple washings each day (or if you have children who love playing in the water). Overdoing it can be dangerous, so make sure you follow directions carefully when washing your outdoor furniture.
Use a Vacuum Cleaner
A vacuum cleaner is one of the best tools you can use for cleaning your outdoor furniture and keeping it protected from the elements. Vacuuming regularly will help remove dirt, dust and pollen from your cushions, sofas and chairs. If you have pets or children, this will also help reduce the amount of hair that can accumulate on the furniture.
Use a Stain Remover
If you spill something on your outdoor furniture, immediately remove as much of it as possible with a wet paper towel or sponge before applying a stain removal solution such as Nature’s Miracle Original Odorless Odor Eliminator (available at most supermarkets). If you don’t have any on hand, try diluting a few drops of dishwashing liquid in half a cup of water and apply it directly to the spillage; let it sit for about five minutes before wiping away any excess moisture with another damp cloth.
