Your Guide to Cleaning and Preserving Outdoor Furnitures (so they last for years!)

Outdoor furniture is an important addition to any outdoor space, as it can add style, comfort, and function to your patio, deck, or backyard. But over time, outdoor furniture can get dirty, faded, and damaged from exposure to the elements. To keep your outdoor furniture looking its best, it is important to clean and preserve it regularly.

Here are some steps to help you clean and preserve your outdoor furniture:

Clean the surface 

Before you start preserving your furniture, first, clean the surface thoroughly. Remove any dirt, dust, or debris by wiping the furniture down with a damp Jumbo Microfiber Cloth. You can also use a mild soap and water solution to remove any stubborn stains or grime. Be sure to rinse the furniture thoroughly with clean water to remove any soap residue.

Sand and repair 

If your furniture has any rough spots or splinters, use a fine-grit sandpaper to smooth out the surface. You can also use wood filler to repair any cracks or holes in the furniture. Let the filler dry completely before sanding it smooth. After sanding, don’t forget to sweep the floor using Angle Broom with Dustpan to remove dust.

Apply a protectant

To preserve the color and finish of your outdoor furniture, it is important to apply a protectant. There are several different types of protectants available, including waterproof sprays, UV-resistant stains, and clear finishes. Choose a product that is suitable for the type of wood or material your furniture is made from, and follow the manufacturer's instructions for application.

Seal the furniture

Sealing your outdoor furniture will help to protect it from water damage, decay, and UV rays. Choose a sealant that is compatible with your protectant, and apply it evenly to the surface of the furniture. Let the sealant dry completely before using the furniture.

Store the furniture properly

When not in use, store your outdoor furniture properly to protect it from the elements. Store the furniture in a dry, covered area, such as a shed or garage. If you don't have a covered area, use a furniture cover to protect the furniture from rain and sun.

By following these steps, you can keep your outdoor furniture looking its best for years to come. Regular cleaning and preservation will help to prevent damage from the elements and keep your furniture looking great for your next outdoor gathering.
