5 Things Ruining Your Outdoor Upholstery

Do you have your sights set on warm days spent lounging outside? It sounds like a great idea—until you inspect your outdoor upholstery and discover it has seen better days. After you take the time to clean it up, use these tips to protect your outdoor upholstery so all you have to wait for is a nice weather forecast to enjoy your little outdoor oasis.

How to Protect Outdoor Upholstery

  • Cover it when not in use. This is the easiest way to take care of your outdoor upholstery. Use water-proof covers to protect your furniture when you aren’t using it. Be sure the cushions aren’t wet before putting them on, or you might create the perfect environment for mold and mildew to form.
  • Take cushions inside during the off-season. If you don’t plan on using your outdoor furniture over the colder months, bring the cushions inside to keep them even safer from the elements.
  • Check for specific cleaning instructions by the manufacturer. You might be surprised to learn your cushions can be machine-washed! Look for a tag on the fabric for specific cleaning instructions. Like any upholstery cleaning, do a small test area first to be sure the color of the fabric isn’t impacted.
