well maintained. Proper maintenance and care will ensure that it will last for many years. When caring for your furniture, you want to make sure that you clean, maintain, and repair the furniture pieces on a regular basis.
The best product for cleaning your pool deck furniture is simply a mixture of water and mild soap. This inexpensive cleaning mixture works well on all types of pool furniture, including wicker, paint, and metal. As your furniture ages, and is exposed to continuous sunlight, chlorine, chemicals and suntan lotion, you may need to use something stronger. Avoid using bleach, however, as it can damage your furniture if used improperly. Unless you store your pool furniture in a shed or covered area, it may be continuously exposed to the elements as well. After the rain,
wind, and dust storms have hit, there is bound to be a layer of thick dirt and grime covering all of your beautiful pool furniture. If this should happen, clean your furniture with a strong cleaning solvent; however, avoid spraying furniture that has exposed wood. Make sure that you wipe down your pool furniture each time that it is exposed to water, including the sprinklers.
Instead of repairing all of your damaged outdoor pool furniture, you can take measures to ensure that it doesn’t get damaged in the first place. Here are several ways that you can stop this damage before it starts:
• You can buy round or square guides, which will help to protect your floor from scratches caused by lawn chairs. Check the bottom of your chair’s feet in order to find the particular shape of the guide. You can also trim the guide in order to make it fit properly.
• Cover all exposed chair legs and chair tubing. Tubing inserts are important because they prevent rust corrosion, which often occurs on chairs that are exposed to humidity or water.
• Be on the lookout for splitting and cracking of the mesh or vinyl straps of your pool furniture. If splitting does occur, then call a reputable outdoor furniture repair service, or you can complete the project yourself.
Worn out furniture repairs usually consist of replacing the mesh or vinyl sling, and re-strapping the sling into its original spot. This can be a difficult job to accomplish alone because it requires a professional to actually stretch the vinyl across the chair and insert it in the other side. You could ask for a friend’s help, or call an expert to help you out with the job.
Certainly, you can save a lot of money by repairing your pool furniture yourself; however, you may not receive the professional look that you had envisioned for your quality pool deck furniture. Some things are best left to the experts.
