How to Protect Your Wooden Outdoor Sofas


Spending some time on your patio or on your backyard can be quite relaxing after a long days work. Since a lot of people love to spend some time to relax outside their homes for awhile, many are getting outdoor sofa sets to place on their patio or along their yard.

There are a lot of choices when looking for a sofa outdoor set, among them are wicker sofas. These sofas are made from wood, interwoven to create a sturdy sofa that you can place on your patio or on your yard. Rattan wicker sofas are not only friendly to your budget, but they also have great durability that cal allow them to last long.

However, if you really want to get the most of your wicker furniture, like the wicker loveseat that you often enjoy sharing with your partner you should follow these tips:

1. Coating your sofa with water proof-polish - when choosing a wicker sofa for outdoor use, make sure that
you choose one that has been coated with water proof-polish. Since they are intended for outdoor use, they will constantly be in contact with moisture, especially during rainy days. Water can easily degrade any wooden furniture. So you need to have them protected with water proof-polish.

However, if you're chosen furniture does not have a water proof coating, you can easily purchase one in your local hardware and paint it over the furniture yourself. This should be done from time to time to give maximum moisture protection. This can help prevent moisture from degrading through your wooden furniture.

2. Drying your wooden sofa - aside from having a water proof polish placed on your wooden furniture, you should also keep in mind that water can easily seep in through wood if there is entrance. In order to prevent damage due to moisture, you should properly dry your furniture.

You should wipe the moisture from your wooden furniture during the morning or after it got wet. This prevents water from seeping into your wooden furniture and destroying it.

3. Termites and pests - aside from moisture, termites and other pests are one of the greatest threats to any wooden furniture. Termites eat through wood and can easily destroy your wicker furniture if you do nothing to prevent or treat the invasion.

In order to protect your furniture from termites, make sure that you purchase wooden furniture that is made from wood that has been treated with chemicals that repels termites. Another option is to purchase a termite spray product and spray it over your furniture yourself. This will prevent future termite attacks on your furniture.

Getting a rattan wicker sofa for outdoor use can be a great investment. It is quite relaxing and cool to sit in, compared to upholstered sofas. Other than that, they also come in varying styles and designs that can allow you to choose one that you think is fitting to place in your patio or for outdoor use. Having one placed on your patio, outdoor garden, front or backyard can truly add style and a place for you to relax in your home.
