Caring for Your Outdoor Furniture: Tips Maintenance and Storage

Investing in outdoor furniture from Dress Your Space is a fantastic way to enhance your outdoor living space. However, once you have made that investment, you are going to want to ensure its longevity. Proper maintenance and storage practices are essential to keeping your outdoor furniture looking fresh and in perfect working order. Here, we take a peek at a few valuable tips on caring for your investment so you can ensure it withstands the elements.

Regular Cleaning

This is probably one of the more obvious tips but that's because it is also the most important. Regular cleaning is crucial, for everything from outdoor lounge chairs to fireplaces. Use a mild soap or specialised outdoor furniture cleaner along with a soft brush or cloth to remove dirt, stains and mildew. Then, rinse it thoroughly with water. Make sure to allow it to dry completely before using or storing it. If you're in doubt regarding potentially damaging fabric, either consult the manufacturer's recommendations for cleaning products to avoid or get in touch with us for help.

Know When to Store It

Think about storing your outdoor furniture during times of the year when you know you won't use it. While there are options available for winter, if your furniture will see very little use during this time, it's best not to leave it out to get battered. Storing it properly in the garage during inclement weather will preserve it for the good times. This is an imperative part of the do’s and don’ts of caring for outdoor furniture.

Protective Covers

The other option is to shield your furniture with high-quality protective covers when you aren't using them. This offers a simpler alternative to completely packing it away in the garage and will be handy when you need intermittent protection against nasty weather. Outdoor furniture covers prevent fading, water damage and the build-up of dirt. Make sure to find a waterproof cover and UV-resistant. We know quality outdoor furniture in Geelong.
