Outdoor furniture is durable but still requires timely care. Marks, mildew, or stains may develop on outdoor furniture
over time. With this expert guide requiring minimal effort, you can maintain your outdoor furniture and increase its life.
Protect Outdoor Furniture
An ultimate way of maintaining outdoor furniture is to cover the patio furniture when not in use. You can even take these pieces indoors.
Deep Cleaning of Outdoor Furniture
Dirt and debris accumulated on the furniture should be vacuumed with a dust-brush or a dry paintbrush. Use outdoor furniture
cleaner or simply clean with a mild soap solution. You can also scrub and rinse. Too much use of water should be avoided, which can weaken the fibers.
Cleaning Outdoor Cushions and Throws
Outdoor throws and pillows
are made of performance fabric designed to resist sun damage, moisture, mildew, spills, and stains. The spills and stains should be immediately wiped with a wet cloth as some liquids like sunscreen can result in discoloration. When it is about the cleaning of covers, machine wash in cold water, using mild detergent and then air dry.
Low Maintenance Outdoor Furniture
Resin or all-weather furniture is manufactured from plastic or polyvinyl chloride (PVC). While cleaning plastic chairs and tables
in your backyard patios, simply wipe the furniture with a dry or wet cloth.
Keep Pets and Toddlers Away
Pets don’t always have to sit everywhere you do. Hair of your pets, both dogs and cats, is difficult to clean off the upholstery. Not just their hair gets stuck in the cushions
, but also their sweat and odors are trapped into the fabric as well. Also, the kids in the home can scratch and tear the fabric while they play and jump on it. Make sure that the upholstery that you use is long-lasting. Go for leather, denim fabrics and more that is resistant to damages caused by kids and pets. Or, simply keep your pets and kids at home away from the outdoor furniture and it will most definitely last longer.
