Caring for Garden Furniture

Now that summer has official arrived, you will be bringing out the BBQ and outdoor furniture into the garden, but all too often after a long winter stored in the shed, in the garage or under covers it all needs a bit of TLC before it can be used.

Start by giving the BBQ a thorough clean to get rid of all the residue grease and fat.

Wash down furnish with warm soapy water. If it is wooden furniture you may need to sand it down to get rid of the dirt that is harder to get off. If it is metal furniture rub down any areas that appear to have gone rusty. After washing the furniture then treat it by either: varnishing, painting or using metal polish on the furniture to restore it to its former glory.

The soft furnishings used outside are far more prone to wear and tear by the weather. To keep it looking fresh and clean regularly wash cushion covers and throws, but if they become too faded or worn replace cushions and throws to give your  garden a new look.

When the summer is over instead of trying to pack all this equipment away into the garden shed, the garage, or just left covered in the corner of the garden, why not consider using a self-storage unit? It is the perfect way to store the bulky outdoor furniture, the BBQ and the gazebo to keep it clean, dry, safe and free from rust and mould during the harsh winter months.
