Seasonal Outdoor Furniture Maintenance Checklist

Home Maintenance

Last updated:

Keep your outdoor furniture in top shape with this seasonal maintenance guide. Begin by examining your furniture for any damage or wear, followed by a thorough cleaning using mild soap and water. Ensure all screws and bolts are tightened, and apply a protective sealant or paint to wooden pieces. Examine cushions and fabric for any stains or damage, and clean them using an appropriate cleaner. Make sure they are completely dry before storing them in a dry, cool place. Protect your furniture with weather-resistant covers and store smaller items in a shed or garage. Don't forget to check for rust on metal pieces and treat if needed, as well as inspecting and cleaning umbrella fabric and mechanisms.
