It’s important to take care of your furniture. After all, it’s an investment in the quality appearance of your home! You need to take special care of the furniture that you leave outside. The Furniture Domain has a few tips for you.
-Make sure you cover your outdoor furniture when you aren’t using it. The best way to do this, of course, is with waterproof covers. This is especially important if you have wood furniture outside. Rain and sun can easily take a toll on outdoor furniture, so your best bet is to take the few extra minutes to cover it up.
-Every once in a while take the time to give your outdoor furniture a thorough cleaning. Dirt can deteriorate outdoor furniture, so cleaning will certainly make it last longer! Hose it down, and let it dry thoroughly. You can also remove any cobwebs or plant residue this way.
-For wood furniture, make sure it is dried thoroughly if it gets wet. Wood can rot easily, and then you won’t be able to use it!
-Check on your furniture, too. Make sure the nuts, bolts, screws, etc. are functioning properly. Anything will wear out with time, but you can make sure everything stays in tip-top shape with some regular maintenance.
With proper care and maintenance, your outdoor furniture will last a long time!
