Outdoor Furniture Care Guide – 3 Easy Tips

The biggest concern when shopping for new patio sets, is wondering how long new patio furniture will last. The truth is, outdoor furniture can last as long, if not longer, than indoor furniture if properly maintained. Here at Vancouver Sofa & Patio, our outdoor furniture is of the highest quality. And our experts are here to provide you with all of the outdoor furniture care guide tips necessary to ensure your purchase will last. As you will be using it to entertain guests on your patio for many years to come. To start, check out these 3 easy tips to prolong the lifespan of your outdoor patio furniture in Vancouver BC.

Store your Outdoor Furniture Vancouver during the Harshest Months

First tip of our outdoor furniture care guide is to store your patio set indoors. Perhaps this is the best way to add years to the life of your new patio furniture. Simply by bringing them inside and properly store them during periods of the harshest weather. Generally from October to April. In addition, purchase high quality outdoor furniture covers from Vancouver Sofa & Patio. However, these covers are a secondary line of defense against weather, if you don’t have room to bring your set indoors. Additionally, the covers will help keep dirt off it, as well as limiting sun damage during the hot months.

When winter comes around, you can count on it to be wet. Thus leaving your patio furniture outside will slowly deteriorate it. You likely won’t be entertaining guests outdoors during Vancouver’s fall and winter months. Therefore, do yourself and your furniture a favor,  by finding a dry place to store it during the winter.

Actively Clean The Fabric on Your Outdoor Furniture

People will always wipe down their tables and chairs after a big outdoor party. But the fabric on outdoor conversation sets often goes overlooked. While more tedious than a quick table wipe down, cleaning and caring for the fabric on your patio set will help prevent it from cracking, tearing and staining. In addition to caring for the fabric, consider touching up and freshening the frames of your furniture as well. This will help prevent rust from developing on metal frames. As well as continually re staining wooden furniture, keeping it water tight and stronger for many years!

Replace Pieces of your Outdoor Furniture, Instead of Entire Sets

Pay attention to the condition of your patio furniture. Then be ready to invest in replacement parts when the time comes. Instead of letting your furniture fall apart at the seams, replace rusty bolts, weakening vinyl, torn cushions, or broken frames as the problems arise. This outdoor furniture care guide will lengthen the lifespan of your furniture, similar to fixing your car. Hence it will prolong your next visit to your local Vancouver patio furniture store.

Many people who purchase outdoor furniture simply expect it to last a few seasons. Thankfully, with our easy to follow outdoor furniture care guide, it will last much longer. There are many steps you can take to extend the life of your patio furniture as long. While the above 3 steps are a start, stop by Vancouver Sofa & Patio in Richmond to speak with our experts.
