How to Clean and Maintain Your Outdoor Furniture

December 24, 2023

Outdoor furniture adds a touch of elegance and functionality to your outdoor living space. However, exposure to the elements can cause dirt, grime, and damage. Keep your outdoor furniture looking its best by following these simple cleaning and maintenance tips.

Cleaning Your Outdoor Furniture

Before you start cleaning, it’s essential to determine the type of fabric or material your furniture is made of. This will help you choose the right cleaning products and techniques.

  • For fabric furniture, use a mild soap solution and soft-bristled brush to gently scrub away dirt and stains. Rinse with clean water and allow to air dry.
  • For wooden furniture, use a mixture of equal parts white vinegar and olive oil to wipe down surfaces. This will help restore the natural color and protect the wood from the elements.
  • For metal furniture, use a soft cloth and mild detergent solution to wipe away dirt and grime. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that can scratch the surface.

Remember to test any cleaning solution on an inconspicuous area first to ensure it won’t damage your furniture’s finish.

Maintaining Your Outdoor Furniture

Cleaning is just one part of maintaining your outdoor furniture. Regular maintenance will help extend the life of your furniture and keep it looking its best.

  • Storage: During harsh weather conditions, store your outdoor furniture in a dry, covered area to protect it from damage. Use waterproof covers or tarps to protect against rain and snow.
  • Inspection: Regularly inspect your furniture for signs of wear and tear. Check for loose screws, damaged fabric, or broken parts. Make repairs promptly to prevent further damage.
  • Lubrication: Apply a lubricant to moving parts, such as hinges and wheels, to ensure smooth operation and prevent rust or corrosion.

By following these tips, you’ll be able to enjoy your outdoor furniture for years to come.

What Our Clients Say

Melanie Howell

Had Alissa from Tucson Home Cleaners over for a deep clean, and the service was wow! With my crazy schedule, cleaning's been on the back burner. Alissa just zoomed through the place, hitting spots I totally forgot existed. My kitchen and bathrooms? Sparkling. And she was super cool about working around my chaos. Seriously, if you're thinking about it, go for it. Alissa's a gem.

Michael Smith

Huge shoutout to Tucson Home Cleaners! Just moved into my first condo and wanted everything to be spick and span. These guys made it happen. From the floors to the countertops, everything was spotless when I walked in. Moving day was a breeze, thanks to their hard work. 10/10 would hire them again!

I recently booked Tucson Home Cleaners for a premium cleaning service. It was worth every penny. My place has never looked better. They paid attention to every detail, even those hard-to-reach spots I always forget about. Walking into a clean home after a long day at work was the best feeling ever. Highly recommend their premium cleaning service.

David Thomas

Had the post-construction cleaning service done by Tucson Home Cleaners, and I couldn't be happier. After weeks of renovations, my house was a mess. But these guys came in and worked their magic. They left no corner untouched, and now my home feels brand new. Professionalism and attention to detail are unmatched.

Jennifer Miller

Tucson Home Cleaners are absolute gems! Moms know how holding a children's party can be exhausting, but booking them for both before and after cleanup was a great idea. Before the party, they made sure everything was sparkling clean. And afterwards, they arrived promptly and worked their magic, leaving my house spotless again. It was such a relief to kick back and relax, knowing they had everything under control.
