There is always a debate around whether one should cover their patio furniture. During Winter, it is almost essential that patio furniture is either covered or stored away. However, we want to discuss covering your furniture in Summer. We have provided some information below on patio furniture cover care and other useful information.
Get Into the Habit
Although covering your patio furniture may seem like a lot of work, you should get in the habit of covering the furniture when it is not in use. Even though Summer weather is not as harsh as Winter, there can still be high winds and heavy rainfall that can deteriorate the quality of your patio furniture over time if this exposure is constant. Spending money on a cover will save you money in the long term as it will make your patio furniture last longer.
Lots of Variety
One thing to know about patio furniture covers is that there are always lots of options. Whether you are looking to purchase a cover for your sectional, deep seating chairs, loungers, table, or daybed there will be a cover that fits. Standard sizes are available to fit each item but you are also able to purchase custom patio furniture covers that are made for unique pieces or sets. With the variety of sizes and custom options, you do not have to worry about the cover falling off, so it will always keep your patio furniture protected.
Water Resistant is a Must
When researching patio furniture covers you want to make sure that the cover is water resistant. This may seem obvious however some covers are waterproof which will not provide you with the same coverage. It is important to purchase a cover that is water resistant instead of waterproof because water resistant means that it will repel water but still is very breathable. However waterproof covers are airtight which can create moisture and the perfect conditions for mold growth.
Patio Furniture Cover Care
Lastly, once you have purchased your patio furniture covers it is important that you know how to take care of them. Covers can by washed with warm water (no more than 100°F or 38°C) and mild natural soap. We do not recommend cleaning in washing machines as damage to the covers could occur.
