You invest a lot in your patio furniture and it's important to take extra precautions to keep it in good shape and ready to use come Spring by protecting it from the harsh New England winter elements. Here are 4 very important reasons you should not leave your furniture outside in the winter, covered or not.
- Metal patio furniture should not be left out in the winter. It can rust because of the snow or freezing rain, causing the metal to weaken and break down over time.
- Covering your metal patio furniture will keep snow off the frames, but it also creates a moisture bubble which will promote mold and mildew growth.
- Fabric chairs and/or cushions, even if covered, will get damaged by freezing and thawing, also promoting mold and mildew growth.
- Furniture Covers don’t just provide a home for your patio furniture; these covers have been known to provide a nice temporary home for mice and other varmints seeking shelter during the cold wet winter months.
Needless to say, it’s best to store your OUTDOOR furniture INDOORS during the harsh winter months.
