Preserving your outdoor furniture is essential to maintain its appearance and functionality over time. To that end, our patio and garden furniture experts bring you some key tips to ensure your outdoor furniture looks and functions like new for many seasons to come:

  1. Regular Cleaning: Cleaning your outdoor furniture regularly is key to preventing dust, dirt, and other debris from building up. Use a soft cloth and soapy water to treat the surfaces. It is important to avoid the use of abrasive chemicals that can damage the materials.

  2. Mold Prevention: Outdoor furniture is exposed to moisture. To prevent mold, dry them properly after rain or cleaning. If possible, store them under cover during the rainy season.

  3. Use of covers: Use waterproof covers designed for outdoor furniture. Covering your furniture when not in use protects against constant exposure to the elements and reduces the need for frequent cleaning.

  4. Wood treatment: If you have wooden furniture, apply a sealer or varnish suitable for exteriors. This will help protect the wood from moisture and sun wear.

  5. Cushions and upholstery: If your furniture has cushions or upholstery, make sure they are suitable for outdoor use and are waterproof. Wash the covers according to the manufacturer's instructions and store the cushions in a dry place when not in use.

  6. Winter Storage: During the winter months, consider storing your outdoor furniture in a sheltered, dry location, such as a garage or shed. If this is not possible, cover them with covers and protect them from the weather.

  7. Avoid direct sun: Constant exposure to the sun can fade colors and weaken materials. Place your furniture in shady areas or use umbrellas to protect it.

  8. Regular Inspection: Perform periodic inspections for any signs of wear, corrosion, or damage. Addressing problems early can prevent further damage.

  9. Maintenance depending on the material: Different materials (metal, wicker, plastic, etc.) require different levels of maintenance. Research specific recommendations for the type of furniture you have.

  10. Be careful when assembling and disassembling: If your furniture is collapsible or removable, be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions when assembling and disassembling it. Incorrect assembly can weaken parts and affect stability.

By following these tips, your outdoor furniture can be kept in excellent condition, providing you with comfort and enjoyment for many seasons outdoors. And you know, Eezy makes it easy for you! Enjoy our express delivery, financing of up to 36 months without interest and the Dec-Ho Group guarantee.
