Mortgage and Lending with DNJ Gateway Mortgage

This week marks the official start of Summer and for me that means grilling out and loungeing on my back patio.But if your like me, you probably have not touched your outdoor furniture in about 8 months or so and before you can start enjoying your back yard you’ll want to make sure that your furniture is clean.

Patio Furniture

In this 4-minute video from Lowe’s, you’ll learn tricks to keep your outdoor furniture clean, and protected from the elements. All types of outdoor furniture are covered in the lesson including metal, resin-based, and wooden.

The offered tips include:

  • Why you should never remove the “care tags” from a furniture pillow
  • Choosing the proper pressure-washer tip for the job at-hand
  • How to use car wax as a rust-preventative

Furthermore, the instructional video includes tips for cleaning fabrics and canopies; and for shampooing an outdoor rug.

There’s lot of reasons to keep your outdoor furniture clean — health reasons among them — but it shouldn’t be lost that clean furniture will have a longer useful life than furniture that’s been neglected or ignored.

It is receomended to clean your outdoor pieces at least twice annually and they’ll give you years of good looks and comfort.

Austin- I think some people think that because it's outside it doesn't have to be cared for like our indoor furniture.  And you make a very good point of caring for it to extend its life.  In South Florida this is especially important if you live near the ocean.  The salt destroys everything quickly if you don't care for it.
