Ways to protect outdoor furniture

Weather can do serious damage to your outdoor furniture. Therefore, it is really important to protect your outdoor living space from dirt, rot and rust. You can successfully accomplish this with these simple steps.

Keep it clean

Clean your furniture with mild dish soap and warm water. Use a sponge to break up grime and a hose to rinse away any soap residue. Leave it in the sun to dry.

Protect fabric

You can protect your fabric of upholstery or cushions by giving it a good wash with mild dish soap and warm water. Once the fabric is completely dry, spray it with fabric protector.

Use furniture sunscreen

One of your patio furniture’s biggest enemies is a hot, sunny day. UV rays can seriously fade your furniture. If your furniture is metal or plastic, apply an even coat of outdoor furniture protector. You can use a paint brush to make this job easier. If your furniture is wood, then you can use a regular paint to protect it from the sun. The pigments in paint work like sunscreen, and protect the wood from harm.

Plan ahead

You can protect outdoor furniture from extreme weather, by covering up your furniture or moving it into a storage shed. Furniture covers will not do much against wind, but they will protect your outdoor furniture against the damaging UV rays and torrential rain.

These simple steps will help you protect your outdoor furniture, thus increasing your furniture’s durability.
