No matter where you live, at some point you will need to protect your patio furniture. When the weather gets too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter, not only will you not be able to enjoy your time on your garden corner sofa set. Inclement weather such as wind, rain, sleet, snow, hail, ice, and even the blazing summer sun can also damage your patio furniture over time. So in order for your furniture to last for years, you need to find covers that will properly protect each piece of furniture. Patio furniture covers can help protect your patio furniture from the outdoor weather elements when it is not in use. Without them, your furniture and cushions will break down much faster. If you are looking for the right furniture cover for your rattan patio furniture, here are some tips for making the best choice when it comes to buying.
The material of your furniture cover is the key to ensuring weather and water resistance. Moisture from humidity and precipitation can wreak havoc on your furniture because if water is trapped in the wraps, it can cause fungal growth that can damage your patio furniture. Therefore furniture covers should be made of durable waterproof and UV resistant material that can withstand extreme temperature and weather conditions, including heat and cold, without damage. Waterproof patio furniture covers will also protect your beloved rattan garden furniture sets from dirt, dust and unsightly water stains or tree sap and bird droppings from the effects of tree sap and bird droppings. In addition, furniture covers should be lightweight so that they are easy to use and easy to store when not in use.
When buying a furniture cover, you need one that fits your rattan patio furniture size perfectly. Only covers that fit your furniture perfectly will they provide proper protection for your furniture in multiple seasons. An outdoor furniture cover that is too small will not provide adequate protection because some parts of the furniture are exposed to the elements. A cover that is too large will not fit securely over your furniture and the wind may get underneath when it is windy, making the cover more like a sail and blowing it away. In addition, if the cover is too long, it will sag and allow moisture to collect on rainy and snowy days. In summer, standing water attracts mosquitoes and other pests, and if not removed, it can stain or make the cover moldy. Likewise, standing water can freeze in the winter. That's why most manufacturers offer protective covers for their particular furniture so that every angle is well covered, comfortable and protected. If you want to buy elsewhere, make your choice based on the size of your furniture.
Quality outdoor furniture covers are made with thoughtful and well-made details. They have crisp corners and properly stitched seams. You may not give this importance, but it is worth paying attention to. Usually, Double-stitched seams safeguard against ripping and tearing of outdoor furniture covers, and effectively improve the durability. Therefore, you should look for covers with seam reinforcements that ensure double protection and make your cover as durable as your furniture. Otherwise, your furniture cover is likely to cause cracks and other effects after suffering from strong storms and strong winds in the area, thus making you have to incur additional expenses again.
Sturdy Tie Downs
Look for furniture covers that have multiple fastening methods to ensure they will hold your rattan garden table and chairs well. If you are not home when high winds hit, your furniture may be exposed to dangerous weather and risk damage or being blown away. For this reason, you should consider purchasing furniture covers that can be tied and secured to each piece of furniture leg. Fasteners such as buckles and elastic cords hold the cover in place, even in severe weather with strong winds. These tie-downs are convenient because you can secure them to the legs of your furniture. As long as the knots are tight enough, the cover will not come loose.
