Preparing Storage For Outdoor Furniture

It is time to get rid of all storage for outdoor furniture and prepare it for the new season and lazy summer days. You’ll be able to spend a bit more time doing spring repairs and will have less work to do when fall turns back into winter, and you are getting ready to store it again. Taking the time to clean and repair outdoor tables, couches, chairs, and umbrellas means you’ll be able to extend the life of your investment sometimes for years.


To remove dirt and dust from wood, metal, wicker or rattan frames, wash them with cold water and mild soap. To keep cushion covers and fabric colors vibrant, it is important to wash them according to manufacturer instructions. Be sure no soap remains. To prevent rusting and warping, dry thoroughly.

Rust Patrol

Over the winter, metal frames and parts can rust. To remove rust, use sandpaper. To prevent the problem from returning, make sure to apply clear wax or rust inhibiting primer and paint. Untreated rust can eventually cause damage to the metal structure, making your furniture unsteady.

Fill in The Gaps

Epoxy or wood filler can be used to fill cracks in wooden furniture. Select a product that matches the wood’s color and then paint or stain the filling.

Wicker and Rattan

This is the right time to repair a damaged weave on rattan or other wicker furniture. If you are looking to repair the damage yourself, you can buy rattan straws or reeds online. If you don’t have the skills to repair furniture, take it to a professional. You can paint the areas that have been repaired to match the original areas, or you can use the paint job to completely transform the appearance of your patio furniture.

Oil and Grease

To loosen hinges and protect metal parts, use WD-40 or any other household oil or grease. To keep patio chairs from spinning or turning, apply a bit of oil to the joints.

In a few months It will feel like summer is finally here when you have your patio set up for barbecues, dinner parties or long evenings laughing with and talking to friends.
