Protecting Garden Furniture


Of all the items which are kept in the home, it’s likely that those kept outside are the ones that take the worst punishment. Long hot summers, cold winters, moist conditions and torrential rain can all play havoc with wood, metal and plastics and given that the majority of external furniture and furnishings tend to be made from wood, metal and plastics, it’s little wonder that so many people find themselves on an endless cycle of replacing.

However, there are a number of steps that a homeowner can take to protect their belongings and ensure they have a long and healthy life – and they start with cargo containers Riverside:

1. Preparing Them

Although it might be a little late in the day for existing furniture, new furniture should always be treated with protective varnishes before being left outside. This should be repeated at the start of each season to ensure that whatever the season brings, the furniture stands a good chance.

2. Nightly Storage

Although many items are built to stay outside, others aren’t. Furnishings such as seat covers should always be put away in cargo containers in Long Beach at the end of the night. After all, even the weather forecast isn’t always right and bad weather could set in overnight with very little warning.

3. Replacement

Treating items well doesn’t mean that they’ll never need replacing but it’s much easier to replace as you need to rather than having to find money to buy every single thing from scratch. Therefore, if an item doesn’t look as new or attractive as it once did then replace it sooner rather than later.

4. Winter Storage

Of all the seasons, winter is the worst for destroying defenceless garden furniture. Therefore, finding long-term storage arrangements such as cargo containers in Chandler for the winter and spring months could mean that the furniture is ready for the following summer with just a little cleaning.
