How to Store Outdoor and Garden Furniture

  • Wash the furniture thoroughly. Dirt and mold holds moisture, which causes decay.
  • Scrub well with soapy water before storage and allow to dry thoroughly.
  • If possible, remove cushions and store indoors.
  • Ensure cushions are also washed and dried if not removable.
  • Store under cover in a shed or garage, or use a waterproof cover.
  • Leave an opening underneath to allow moisture to escape.
  • Store with feet on wood, brick or stone, as grass and dirt transfer moisture and cause decay.
  • Looking after your furniture gives it a longer life, for more enjoyment in the summer.
