Spring is right around the corner and so is the rainy season here in the Lowcountry. While more and more homeowners are itching to spend time outdoors, they’re getting more use out of their outdoor space and furniture. With the changing weather, your outdoor furniture could be deteriorating faster than you’d imagine, especially if you aren’t taking the extra steps to protect it. That’s why our team here at Augusts & Carolina has come together to tell you four solid tips on how you can protect your outdoor furniture this season.
The best way to protect and preserve your outdoor furniture is to keep it clean. Whether it’s washing it down with soap and water, or washing cushion covers to get rid of dirt and debris, this will keep your furniture looking new for many seasons.
Depending on where your furniture is, under a covered porch or out in the open, for added protection it’s a great idea to keep it covered, especially during inclement weather. Covering your furniture will also help protect your fabric from fading in the sun, especially as the weather heats up.
If you have extra room and the means to store your outdoor furniture, this is the most ideal way to preserve the quality of your furniture from the moisture and elements of being outdoors all year round.
Many times outdoor furniture pieces can be used inside, especially many of the pieces we carry in our warehouse. Even if you have space in a screened porch or sunroom/Carolina room, any protection is better than leaving your furniture exposed outside throughout the year.
