Those people that have outdoor furniture probably have outdoor cushions as well. If you are one of these individuals then you know that they can really make things look nicer around your home and they can also make you, and your guests, much more comfortable when it comes to sitting outside and relaxing with an outdoor sconce is lighting up. But, you may be like the hundreds of other people that often wonder what they need to do in order to take care of their cushions so that they will last for a very long time and continue to look nice.
The main thing that you will want to do will be to make sure that your cushions are coated with PVC when you buy them. This really does help ensure that your outdoor cushions are safe and protected from the weather that they will be outside in, most of the time. Just think about the type of weather that you experience where you live. You do not want to spend a lot of money on your cushions to find out that they are not protected and they will not make it through the season. Many people buy their cushions with the understanding that they will last for several years.
It is very important to take the time to wash your cushions from time to time. You can do this by using some warm water and a very light detergent. Most individuals find that this really does make their cushions look bright and clean all over again. Now, if your cushions are really dirty it might be a good idea to use a pressure washer on them. This really does help get dirt out of them that may be really deep down in the fibers.
Just because your cushions are meant to be used outside does not mean that you can completely neglect them. Doing so will only contribute to their early demise. If you are at home, and the weather begins to turn bad, bring your cushions into the house for a little bit. This really will help protect them, and keep them nice for a very long time. Also, make sure that you are bringing them indoors when the season is over and you are no longer going to be using them.
Many individuals will store their outdoor cushions in totes or large plastic bags during the off season. This is a great idea and it can help keep them nice. However, you always want to check them to make sure that they do not have moisture in them and that they are not becoming moldy while they are being stored.
