Maintaining and Storing Your Outdoor Lounge Chair Set

An outdoor sofa is a perfect spot to kick back, relax and enjoy the great outdoors. Proper storage and maintenance are key to ensuring that your outdoor oasis stays in top shape and continues to be the go-to hangout spot. At Dress Your Space, we're all about the outdoor hang but when conditions aren't conducive, you've got to know how to pack up shop. So, here are some tips to make storing and maintaining your outdoor lounge set a breeze.

Clean Up Like a Pro

Before storage, give your outdoor lounge chair a very good clean. Start by removing any fabric covers or outdoor cushions. If in doubt about the potential for chemical damage, consult the manufacturer's instructions for washing or spot-cleaning. Use mild soap, water, and a soft brush or sponge to scrub away dirt, stains, and debris on the furniture. Rinse thoroughly and let it air dry completely.

Cover Up!

Invest in high-quality furniture covers that are designed specifically for outdoor use. These covers are lifesavers when it comes to protecting your lounge set from the elements. Before covering, ensure the furniture is dry to prevent moisture build-up. Make sure the covers fit snugly and secure them properly to keep your furniture safe from dust, dirt and inclement weather.

Maintain Tidiness

Regularly remove leaves, sticks and other debris from your outdoor lounge set. A quick sweep or wipe-down with a damp cloth can do wonders in keeping your furniture looking fresh and inviting. Maybe even encourage your family and friends to lend a hand after each gathering to maintain a tidy outdoor space!

Strategic Storage

Where possible, store your outdoor lounge chair under cover if you only use it seasonally. There's no point leaving it to the mercy of the elements if it doesn't see winter use. This could be in a garage or shed if you don't have a loft. If this isn't an option, stack the furniture and use the weather-resistant outdoor furniture covers mentioned above to protect it.
