Wooden garden furniture is a real decoration of any rest area. However, it is important to remember that they require care! Check out how to renew them after winter, so that they continue to please the eye.
It must be admitted that wooden furniture is a dream for many people. Such sets wonderfully fit into the arrangement of the garden or terrace. And it makes you want to stay there even more! When you take them out after winter, however, you need to take proper care of them. Otherwise you will not enjoy their beautiful appearance for too long.
Some people, after taking out their garden furniture for the new season, are eager to get help from specialists. Believe us, there is no need for this. You are able to take care of the condition of the wood yourself. Dishwashing liquid and a sponge is something you are sure to have at home. And at first you mainly need it. You need to wash the furniture to clean it, of course, but also to see what condition it is in. If you have a pressure washer, all the better – the cleaning will be more effective. Once the furniture is clean, you can assess how much it needs to be embraced after the winter.
That’s right – it should be noted at the outset that wood maintenance is something worth doing regularly. Not only when the furniture is visibly damaged. This delicate material needs care and attention regardless of its condition. It’s worth being regular about it, so renovating garden furniture after winter just seems obvious. The restoration of garden furniture made of wood is a three-step process. We are talking, of course, about cleaning, which you have already done, as well as protecting and painting. Sometimes, in addition, you need to fill cavities or make minor repairs.
When it comes to protecting wood, reach for professional impregnants for this material. You can find them in any building and garden supply store. The final look of the furniture you dream of will be given by painting. When you dream of the maximum natural effect, reach for a stain or varnish. You can also choose from a variety of wood paints, each of which produces a slightly different effect. It’s up to you what you decide on.
And there you have it, done! It wasn’t that difficult, was it?
