Looking after your patio furniture

Looking after your  patio furniture

There’s more to enhance your outdoor space than installing a cozy porch. Complement your backyard with the right furniture, and it will be your new favorite dining destination. However, you will want to keep it that way. Left unchecked, the elements will wreak havoc with your outdoor furniture. Looking after it properly is essential, here’s how to get started.

Unlike indoor furniture, outdoor wicker furniture offers the perfect balance between comfort and looks. They’re ideal for the typical homeowner that doesn’t want to spend much on furniture maintenance. The synthetic wicker is durable and good to use in all but the most extreme conditions. With the right care, wicker furniture will last you years. If you want something that lasts a long time and looks great, wicker is the way to go.

While it might be obvious to some, you should put away any furniture when not in use. Even the toughest wrought iron chair is no match for damp and cold weather, especially snow. Equipment will last longer when stored appropriately. Not enough garage space? They make foldable furniture for compact storage these days.

Finally, give your furniture a deep clean every few months, especially if it was left out during extreme weather. Dust, grit, and grime can build up and cause more damage if left unchecked. You should also consider regular cleaning. All you need is a damp cloth to wipe it down.
