Many people like to keep plastic garden chairs in their garden or patio because they are easy to take apart and put together again when needed. Others like them simply because they are durable, attractive, and they can be bought in many different materials and colors. Whatever your reasons for buying plastic patio furniture, it's important to have it properly maintained.
Plastic chairs are made from polypropylene, which is one of the strongest materials available. Some manufacturers even make a specially formulated spray on paint for use on plastic garden chairs. This means that you can have the drab and old plastic patio chairs looking new in as little as a day. Simply put on a painter's protective mask to prevent breathing fumes in your paint.
Regular cleaning of plastic garden chairs is best as the dust and dirt build up will get trapped in the cushions. You should clean your chairs every six months to a year depending on how much abuse you put them through. Some homeowners prefer to clean the cushions with a damp cloth. However, if you want to get rid of all the dirt that has built up then you should use a vacuum cleaner to clean the cushions.
If you have wooden garden chairs that are not painted, it is important that you paint the legs and other parts of the chairs before you put them away. The purpose of painting is to protect the plastic from rusting. If the paint gets dull, it may crack under pressure making the chair unstable.
It may be wise to invest in a dust mop to clear off any spills before you put wooden garden chairs outside. Once you have cleaned the furniture, wipe down the cushions with a damp cloth to remove any spills and keep the chair dry.
Keeping plastic patio furniture looking great can be a challenge but it is well worth it for the beautiful look and feel that it gives to your garden. If you take care of your plastic garden chairs, they will last a long time.
If you don't want to buy patio furniture with a coating of paint, you can instead choose plastic that is pre-coated with a protective finish. These types of chairs are easier to clean than those that have a coating of paint but are not as durable.
If you don't have a very large garden, you can choose plastic that looks good when you are not using it and store it in a closet. You can bring your garden furniture out for the occasional summer afternoon picnic or you can even leave it outside in the yard as a seating area. Just remember to protect it from the sun by covering it when it is not being used.
If you have children or pets, garden furniture is a good choice to use indoors where pets and children are not allowed. Children love to pick and eat their toys or peck at garden furniture, so it's a good idea to have furniture that you can clean easily and disinfect.
