It’s time to start getting your yard ready for summer by pulling your outdoor furniture out of storage. As the weather gets warmer, you’ll spend more time with family and friends in your backyard or on your patio. If you’ve prepared your furniture for winter, it will be in good condition and ready for your enjoyment in late spring or summer. As part of your spring lawn cleanup this year, take these steps to prepare your lawn furniture for the spring and summer months.
Clean Your Pieces
Several months of storage will dirty almost anything, so make sure to clean your outdoor furniture before placing it outside. Scrub fabrics, including any cushions, with mild soap and warm water to remove any excess stains. 0000 grade steel wool can be useful for metal furniture if it has been painted and sealed, but careful for use on raw. If you have removable covers, they may be machine washable, making cleaning patio furniture items even easier. Wipe down any wicker furniture or metal bases carefully, making sure not to damage the surfaces. Follow the care guides for cleaning your outdoor furniture, making sure not to use products that can harm your pieces, like all-purpose cleaners. Wooden furniture sometimes needs a complete overhaul to remove the grey water-stains and bring it back to life. Call us if you need help!
Seal Fabric for a New Season

There are options that are waterproof and UV-resistant, which help your outdoor furniture last even longer. When preparing your lawn furniture for spring, keep in mind that the harsh sun and rain can damage your pieces, so take the time to guard them from harm. You can usually find fabric protectant at your local hardware store.
