Iron furniture is prone to rust in rain and snow. Usually you only need to wipe it clean after rain.

If there are cushions and cushions, it is best to clean it out and store it in a shed or garage, so that you can prepare for the next spring.



Aluminum itself hardly rusts, so you don’t need to worry too much in rainy weather, but aluminum furniture will use holes to help drain water, and water will remain in the holes. If you are in a colder climate, when the temperature is Below the freezing point, it is easy for water to freeze inside the furniture, thereby damaging the furniture inside. Therefore, it is best not to expose the aluminum furniture to the outside in snowy weather and cover it with a protective cover to avoid damage.



Wooden furniture is most easily corroded and cracked by rain in spring and autumn, so furniture oil can be used to prevent moisture from entering, and exposure to sunlight can easily change the color of wood. Therefore, in the strong sun season, it is best to use UV protection spray to protect it. In winter Moisture is also easy to enter secretly inside. After reaching the freezing point, it is easy to cause cracking, so it is best to cover the wooden furniture with a protective cover in the rainy season.



Wicker generally includes natural wicker and synthetic wicker. Natural wicker is expensive and easily damaged. In summer, UV coating can be applied to them. You don’t need to cover the protective cover. If you don’t use it for a long time in winter, you need to cover it. Put on a protective cover to prevent damage from snow and ice.
