Planning for Winter: Caring for Patio Furniture

With winter just around the corner, now is the time to begin preparing your outdoor furnishings for the off-season. Begin by cleaning your furniture to remove dust and other debris, such as leaves under the base of the table, and remove the cushions. If the cushions are damaged, order Brown Jordan replacement cushions before spring for a fresh, comfortable seating option next summer.

Store undamaged cushions in a cool, dry place that is dust-free, and cover wicker furniture with a water-proof drop cloth. You can also store your wicker furnishings in a shed or another space that is dry and dust-free for easy setup the following spring. Cover the furniture with a canvas drop cloth while it is in storage for an extra layer of protection. A drop cloth is especially helpful when storing wicker in the shed or garage, says Wicker Paradise, as the cloth prevents dust from settling in the hard-to-reach areas between the woven strands of the furniture.

If you have wicker replacement cushions, consider storing them in a climate-controlled space until spring. Make sure the cushions are completely dry before storing them, and wash the cushion covers if they are dusty or stained. Washing before storage is a simple way to prevent mildew and other damage while the cushions are in storage. With a few basic steps, your patio furniture is easy to take out of storage for use when summer arrives.
