It’s very important to protect your patio furniture from harmful rays of the sun. Whether you want to lounge for longer, or you just want to avoid fading furniture, there are many things you can do. Keep reading for the top three tips to protecting your furniture from sun by Wicker Paradise.
Sealants Are Your Ally
Many outdoor pieces have some kind of sealant applied to protect them, so look at the materials used on your patio to see which sealant is best for you. However, for those with Treasure Garden Umbrellas, sealant won’t help. Try moving your umbrellas around, and giving them some time under the shade, to help protect the fabrics.
Everyone knows you should condition leather furniture, but you can condition fabrics as well. Basic fabric guard sprays can help keep fabrics from fading, and can help reduce stiffness from being out in the sun. When you sit in your wicker chairs, the warmth of the sun might cause fabrics to stiffen up and feel very uncomfortable to the touch.
Store Furniture Appropriately
In order to avoid yearlong exposure to the sun, consider building a sunroom or moving furniture into storage. Sunroom furniture can easily double as patio furniture, especially because it’s usually very light and easy to move.
If you’re looking to take full advantage of the summer sun, then be sure your furniture is prepared for the elements.
