Helpful Tips For Protecting Your Outdoor Furniture This Winter

It is that time again; the snow is starting to fall and the air is brisk. Without the proper care and protection, your wood furniture will start to show signs of weathering. Of course, some of us like the weathered look of our furniture, but itís still best to protect it from the extreme winter weather.

One option to protect your furniture from the elements is to use protective covers. We have swing and table covers available for purchase on our website. Each cover is breathable, UV protective, and will keep your furniture looking new season after season.

Another way to care for your furniture during the winter months is to apply a protective sealant. A sealant protects the wood from moisture damage. Without a sealant, moisture from snow and freezing rain can seep into the wood, causing it to crack and wear.

We also recommend that all of our varnished outdoor Moon Valley products to be lightly sanded and re-finished after the first season. Following the first season, a treatment once a year will suffice.

Finally, if you do not want to leave your furniture outside during the winter, storing the pieces indoors is a great idea. It is important to store in a place, like a garage or shed, that will be protected from the elements and extreme temperatures.

Regardless of which option you choose, with the proper care and attention, your Moon Valley outdoor furniture can stay in great shape and adorn your home for years to come!
