Maintenance of Garden Furniture

Diamond Chair

Garden furniture like plastic or canvas chairs are best stored indoors or covered over winter, otherwise they soon fade, discolour or become dirty. Some of the heavier items made of wood or cast iron need to be left outside, since they are often too heavy to move and it is these types that need the most maintenance. Cast-iron furniture is wiped with a damp cloth and checked over for rust. Any rusty areas need to be sanded down and treated with a rust converter, then undercoat and top coat of paint.

At first,Where you have a lot of wooden furniture covered with grime a high-pressure sprayer will save time. These machines are connected to a tap and plugged into a mains socket - remember any electrical equipment in the garden should be used with a residual current device (RCD) for safety reasons. Water comes out under pressure and blasts off any debris. The furniture will need to be sturdy. These machines can be hired for around 20 a day (to buy would cost 100-200), the best ones for cleaning furniture have a brush fitting on the end.

The second,After cleaning, the furniture must be allowed to dry out thoroughly before applying any oils or stains, this could take several days.

The third,Hardwood furniture such as teak is more expensive but is naturally very durable so it does not need any wood preservative to protect it from rot. However, to improve its appearance you could rub in teak oil or apply water-based woodstain. Softwoods such as pine are vulnerable to rot, particularly the endgrain of the wood where the feet rest on the ground. Protect your bench by putting each leg in a small pot of wood preservative overnight (do not leave the pots where children can gain access to them as the chemicals are toxic). You can also brush on a wood preservative to the other wooden parts but the chemical will not penetrate as well as it does when being drawn up the endgrain of the wood, so you could use a water-based woodstain instead to improve the appearance.
