Now that you have purchased the best outdoor furniture cover that you can possibly afford, you move into new territory; the proper installation of your covers. But before you do that, you must make sure your furnishings are properly set up and ready to go. First things first, scan your backyard and look for any potential risks that the environment has or can offer; such as trees and branches (or their droppings). Bird nests can also be a source of unwelcome debris (hint hint). Relocating the furniture away from less-than-ideal areas can conceivably save you money, time and effort in replacing expensive parts or the entire furniture itself once damaged. Then make sure that the covers are clean and dry before you install them, to avoid dirt and stains getting permanently preserved on the furniture. Remember, the whole idea is to preserve your furniture as clean, not dirty!
If you opt to buy covers made of inferior plastic or vinyl, your covers may last for two to three years at the most. These types of materials are easily damaged by extremes in temperature. They tend to expand and contract constantly and at such a high level, strain is caused on the stitching thread or heated seams used to put them together. In contrast, higher quality materials are often made to be waterproof, UV resistant, do not expand or contract very much, are lightweight, and some may even have soft linings on the underside to prevent any scratching of the furniture (this is an excellent feature). Examples of these high quality materials are the Tron-Wever fabric, Dupont Tyvek, any high-quality soft-lined vinyl, denier polyester, or the high-tech polypropylene. To see examples of these products, you can peruse a variety of shopping and manufacturers‘ websites. Take your time to see what‘s out there and you‘ll be glad you did!
