Beware The Threat of Winter Weather On Your Outdoor Furniture!

Snow-covered garden furniture on a cold and snowy winter day.

At Boylin’s Self Store we know the terrible toll that winter can take on your beloved outdoor furniture.

Therefore we want to help you protect your outdoor furniture from the threat of weather damage.

By investing in affordable, local self storage you can save your expensive and treasured outdoor furniture from winter weather damage and thus save more money in the long run!

What with early snowfall all around the UK this winter, climate change experts say that winters are set to become longer, colder and harsher so it’s best to be prepared and invest in precautionary measures such as self storage to ensure the longevity of your belongings.

Why Do I Need Self Storage to Protect My Furniture from Weather Damage?

It’s all well and good to store bulky outdoor furniture in a garage, shed, or attic, however, those with smaller properties do not benefit from these privileges.

Moreover, these storage places, particularly garages and sheds are susceptible to detrimental weather damage making them rusty and worn. Therefore, it is a bad idea to store these expensive outdoor furniture in these areas as it will cost you more money in the long run to repair or replace them after they have been damaged.

Furthermore, such furniture clutters up your already crowded home, leading to less storage space in your property. Consequently, without self storage, your home will become cramped and disorganised, thus causing you stress and anxiety in your home which should be a calming and relaxing space for you to unwind. This winter is the perfect time to declutter your home and get a fresh new perspective ahead of the new year.

Therefore, it is a good idea to store any precious furniture that could be at risk from weather damage in a secure, weather proof self storage unit.

At Boylin’s Self Store, every single one of our self-storage units will afford you extra security from theft and weather damage as all of our containers are wind and water tight as well as completely secure.

All of our sites benefit from state of the art CCTV and barrier controls which are only accessible through individual key or fob.

So you can sit back and relax, knowing that your expensive, outdoor belongings are safe from harm year round.

Snow, the sun, rain and ice can damage most varieties of outdoor furniture over time.

Protect Your Garden Furniture come Rain, Snow or Shine this Winter!

Due to the pandemic we have all been making more use of the outdoor space available to us, especially our gardens, patios, balconies or front yards. Therefore, many of us have recently invested in stylish outdoor dining tables, sofas, parasols and BBQs which were amazing during the summer months as they allowed us to kickback outside, dining, relaxing and soaking up the sun.

However, if you leave this furniture out in the garden, shed or outhouse during the colder, rainy months, it can be severely damaged and rusty.

This means you’ll have to fork out to replace this furniture.

Therefore, protecting your outdoor furniture should be one of your top prioritise this winter!

Boylin’s Top Tips on How to Protect Your Outdoor Furniture

Applying a protective varnish to your outdoor wooden furniture helps to protect it against adverse weather. We recommend storing it away during the cold winter months.

Boylin’s Top Tips on How to Protect Your Outdoor Furniture:

Let’s look at the various measures to take during the winter to prolong the life of your chairs, tables and other pieces of furniture:

  1. Wood Patio Furniture

In the winter, the moisture can freeze in the wood of wooden furniture causing it to crack.

The last thing you need is to spend lots of money on expensive outdoor patio furniture only to see it break after a couple of years. Therefore, by taking precautions such as placing the furniture in self storage when summer ends, you’ll guarantee to get the most for your money as it’ll last and last.

  1. Plastic Outdoor Furniture

The frigid temperature in the winter tends to make plastic brittle enough for it to crack.

One of the benefits of plastic furniture is that it’s lightweight and easy to manoeuvre. Additionally, most plastic furniture is easily stackable. These great features of plastic patio furniture mean that it’s easier to pack up and store away in a self storage unit if the weather gets icy.

Moreover, because they are so light-weight they are liable to blow away if they are left outside in windy conditions! Although outdoor furniture is designed to withstand extreme conditions, it is strongly advised to bring your outdoor furniture inside when it snows or is windy.

  1. Wrought Iron Outdoor Furniture

Wrought iron patio furniture for the most part should not be left out in the weather during the winter. It can rust because of the snow or rain. When rust happens, it weakens the metal and causes it to breakdown. It is best to bring this furniture in from outdoors into a self storage unit when summer ends to protect it from rain and snow.

  1. Keep Your Cushions Comfortable & Cosy Ready for next Summer:

Many of the models of outdoor furniture use removable cushions. When not in use in the winter they should be stored indoors.

The fabric can be easily damage by the freezing and thawing that occurs during the cold weather.

Additionally, the stuffing in these cushions can mould and be vulnerable to mildew. You should also bring these inside when it is raining.

Covering them with a tarp or sheet of plastic will keep dust from accumulating on them when placed in self storage.

After all, outdoor decor is an investment in your home, and as such you will want to protect yourself in the long term.
