With cooler weather making its way down south and hurricane season in full swing, there’s never a better time to learn a few tips that will help you when it comes to storing or breaking down your outdoor furniture for the winter. At Augustus & Carolina, we understand many homeowners invest in quality furniture that’s going to last them years, so we believe it’s also our responsibility to help protect those investments. That’s why we’ve come up with a few tips on how to take care of your outdoor furniture this season!
Whether you’re putting your furniture away or keeping it out all season, it deserves a good cleaning. Remove cushions and try mixing warm water and mild soap to gently clean hard surfaces. Hose off once every three to four weeks to keep them looking clean!
Depending on the type of outdoor furniture you have, it might be best to store your more expensive and fragile pieces of furniture indoors, especially if there’s inclement weather. Cushions can wear down faster if they’re left out in the sun or harsh weather conditions.
Many times homeowners can’t move their furniture indoors, so it’s a good idea to utilize patio furniture covers. This added protection will help keep your furniture dry and debris free when homeowners can’t bring their pieces inside.
These tips only scratch the surface of ways you can take better care of your outdoor furniture! Whether you’re just looking for ways to protect your furniture or want to redesign your entire patio area, our interior designers are here to help any way they can! Don’t hesitate to reach out to us!
