Nothing can ruin a deck like broken, rusty furniture. Outdoor furniture is built to take on more abuse than indoor furniture, but this doesn’t mean it’s “maintenance free.” With a little hard work you can freshen up your outdoor furniture.
Your outdoor furniture has probably been sitting all winter long, and this in turn made it a little dirty. You’d be surprised how far a little soap and warm water will go! Give your furniture a good wash and replace any loose and corroded fasteners as needed.
After you’ve freshened up the furniture, make sure you place it away from the edges of the deck and stairs. The last thing you want is to have someone sit in a chair and the leg falls over the edge of the deck.
If you have a hammock, double check the ropes or chains to make sure they are in safe working order.
If you have outdoor storage, a child safety lock is recommended. Also, it’s not advised to store chemicals near a grill or fire pit.
Not only does maintaining your outdoor furniture make your deck look gorgeous, it also ensures you’ve taken the steps necessary to provide your family and guests with a safe outdoor area.
