4 Tips on Caring for your Outdoor Furniture
- Invest in quality materials. Start with choosing better quality materials like Sunbrella fabrics, solid teak, resin wicker, and powder coated aluminum. Investing in quality materials will increase longevity of appearance and construction. The sun, salty air, wind and moisture can affect your outdoor furniture, so it’s important to know what you’re buying if you expect it to last.
- Invest in outdoor furniture covers that are made to preserve, protect, and extend the life of your purchase or place furniture in a covered area if possible.
- Regularly clear away debris and wash or spot clean frames and fabrics when needed. Use a solution of lukewarm water and mild, natural soap. Please note, strong detergents and other chemically-based soaps may permanently damage water-resistant fabrics from Bella-Dura, Sunbrella, and Outdura. Read care instructions and allow furniture, cushions and fabrics to properly dry to prevent mold and mildew.
- Consider the Guardsman Outdoor Protection Plan. When you invest in new outdoor furniture, you want to keep it looking great and damage-free for as long as possible.
