As an outdoor furniture company based out of New England, winter storage is one of the most popular questions we get from our customers. While all of our products are designed to withstand harsh weather, it’s important to understand that even the highest quality materials require proper maintenance.
Outlined below are the 3 most effective tips we recommend to keep your outdoor patio furniture looking fresh each year:
1. Invest in All-Weather outdoor covers. The easiest way to protect your outdoor furniture all year long is by utilizing a high-quality outdoor cover. A proper cover will shield your furniture from water, dirt & UV rays while you're away on vacation, right before a big storm, and even throughout the winter months.
*Pro-Tip: buy a cover with a mesh vent for breathability - this prevents moisture from building up and will keep out mold.
3. Clean your furniture before you store it. Take 20 minutes to make sure your furniture is clean & dry before sending it into hibernation-mode and you'll thank yourself next spring. This will prevent any rust or mildew from forming while the furniture is not in use. It's also a great time to remove any stains from your cushions before they set in.
Last but not least, make sure to use your furniture! Consistent use is one of the best ways to keep your outdoor furniture free of dust, dirt and unwanted pests.
We hope these tips help you extend the life of your furniture and enjoy your outdoor space a little bit more!
