How To Protect Your Outdoor Furniture in Autumn and Winter

As the leaves start to fall and the temperature drops, it’s time to prepare your outdoor furniture for the upcoming autumn and winter seasons. Extensive maintenance and protection are vital in ensuring the longevity of most outdoor furniture but aren’t as necessary with Osier Belle. Put simply, our materials are the absolute best, from the most stunning timber down to the finest thread. Osier Belle’s entire range is commercial and marine-grade, supported by a 5-year warranty. A little care never hurt anything, here are some ways to keep your exquisite outdoor furniture looking its best this winter. 


Avoid Moisture Traps

Moisture can be detrimental to outdoor furniture. To prevent moisture accumulation, avoid covering furniture with plastic sheets or tarps, as they can trap moisture and promote mould growth. Instead, opt for breathable covers that allow air circulation while providing protection. We offer a selection of fabrics with our exclusive Osier Belle Shield protection. These fabrics are fully waterproof.


Buy Durable Materials

All our woven furniture is made with environmentally friendly Viro synthetic wicker, a superior material proven to withstand the elements and our Sunbrella fabrics are water-repellent and guaranteed zero fade for five years. Shopping with Osier Belle promises to grant your home with the highest quality construction and fabric for outdoor furniture. 


Frequent Cleaning

Use a mild soap or furniture cleaner and a soft brush to remove dirt, stains, and debris. Rinse thoroughly and allow the furniture to dry completely. Cleaning helps prevent the accumulation of grime and keeps your furniture looking brand new all year round.


Apply Protective Covers

Invest in our range of high-quality protective covers that are specifically designed for outdoor furniture. These covers shield your furniture from harsh weather conditions such as rain, snow, and UV rays. Ensure that the covers fit properly and are made from durable, waterproof materials. Secure the covers tightly to prevent them from blowing off in strong winds.


Store in a Dry Place

If possible, store your outdoor furniture in a dry and sheltered area if you don’t wish to use during the colder months. A garage, shed or covered patio can provide suitable protection. If you don’t have indoor storage space, consider investing in weatherproof storage boxes or containers. Make sure to clean and dry the furniture thoroughly before storing it to avoid any moisture-related damage.


Angel Hair Dacron

If your outdoor furniture has cushions, it’s essential to protect them as well. They should be removed and stored in a dry and clean place. However, our cushions are filled with Angel Hair Dacron – cushion filling that’s such high quality it can stay outside in all seasons. But, like any outdoor cushion, must be aired after heavy downpours. 


Regular Inspection

Throughout the year, periodically inspect your outdoor furniture for any signs of damage or wear. Address any issues promptly to prevent further damage and ensure that your furniture is ready to use when the warmer seasons return. Our 5-year warranty will provide the peace of mind you need to enjoy your outdoor furniture without worry.


By following these tips from Osier Belle, you can safeguard your investment and enjoy your outdoor furniture for years to come. But with the extensive quality and materials we use, that should be simple. Get in touch with us today to find out more.
