When the time comes to seek shelter from the peaks of summer and winter, it is also about the perfect time to invest in some outdoor furniture covers. Harsh conditions like a heatwave, hail, ice, wind, rain and sleet can be devastating not just to your health but also to your outdoor furniture and this should prompt you to think "I need furniture covers outdoor!". Covering your patio furniture with the appropriate covers can do wonders in prolonging the life span of your furnishings. To end up with the ideal covers, you must consider the materials used to manufacture the covers, the size of your patio furniture, and additional features that you might want the covers to have.
The next item on your to-do list has to do with inspection of the covers for any factory defects, rips, tears or anything that can lead to the deterioration of the cover or the furniture itself. Should you find any defect, make sure to bring them back to the dealer and have them replaced as they should be covered by a warranty. This step will probably be the most time consuming one but will be the most rewarding one. As it is said, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure! Carefully read the instructions and manuals to make sure you understand the installation procedure clearly.
No part of the exterior should be chipped. If it is dented, you should consider a different piece. When you buy furniture, especially solid wood pieces, make sure that the surface is scratch resistant. They should also be easy to maintain. Painted solid wood furniture should also be painted well and evenly. Make sure you check the drawers especially when buying dressers and chests. The drawers should roll out perfectly. Also understand the drawer mechanism to make sure that it can be easily replaced when it finally gives out. Certain types of drawer tracks tend to be prone to damage and they might cause the drawer to get stuck.
Some manufacturers go over the top when making their products the best-of-the-best. When it comes to patio furniture covers, special features may come in the form of elastic hems, Velcro closures, zipper closures, leg ties as well as built-in storage pockets which can be used to protect the covers while in storage. One way to direct water away from outdoor furniture covers is through the use of piping along the seams. Other outdoor furniture covers have built-in air vents whose function is to reduce the level of moisture that can form underneath the covers. Air vents can also reduce the amount of air that gets trapped under the covers during windy days.
