Maintenance Tips for Keeping Your Patio Chairs Looking New



Patio chairs are the cornerstone of any outdoor living space, providing comfort and style as you relax or entertain guests. To ensure that your patio chairs, such as the Belize Sunbrella Patio Chair and Roland Patio Chair, stay fresh and inviting, follow these maintenance tips. Not only will these steps help preserve the beauty and functionality of your chairs, but they will also ensure you get the most out of your investment.

Regular Cleaning

General Cleaning

Regular cleaning is essential to maintain the appearance of your patio chairs. For chairs like the Belize Sunbrella Patio Chair, made with durable and weather-resistant fabric, a mild soap solution and a soft brush are perfect for cleaning. Mix a small amount of mild dish soap with warm water and gently scrub the fabric and frame. Rinse thoroughly with a garden hose and allow the chair to air dry.

Deep Cleaning

It’s good to clean your chairs more thoroughly every few months. This involves removing cushions from chairs, separating sectional pieces, such as the Roland Patio Armless Insert, and cleaning them separately. Many cushion covers are machine washable—check the care label. For stubborn stains, use a fabric cleaner specifically designed for outdoor furniture. Always test a small, inconspicuous area first to ensure no discoloration occurs.

Protection from the Elements

Sun Protection

Even if your patio furniture is made with UV-resistant fabric, prolonged exposure to the sun can still cause fading over time. Cover your patio chairs with protective covers or store them in a shaded area when not in use. This simple step can significantly extend the life of your furniture.

Rain and Moisture

If not properly managed, rain can cause rust and mould on patio furniture. After a rain shower, wipe down the chairs to remove excess moisture. For added protection, consider applying a water-repellent spray to the fabric and frames.

Seasonal Care

Winter Storage

During the colder months, storing your patio chairs in a garage or shed is wise. If storage space is limited, stackable options like the Roland Patio Armless Insert make consolidating and protecting your furniture easier. Before storing, clean and dry the chairs thoroughly to prevent mould and mildew growth.

Spring Prep

Inspect your chairs for any damage or wear as you prepare for the outdoor season. Tighten loose screws, check for rust, and clean thoroughly before setting them up for use. This pre-season maintenance ensures your chairs are ready for the summer months.

Investing in Protection Plans

QLiving offers a 1-year warranty plan for all our furniture, providing peace of mind for any manufacturing defects or issues. Our 5-year stain protection plan is a worthwhile investment if you are looking for extra protection. This plan covers accidental spills and stains, ensuring that your patio chairs remain pristine. Given the investment in high-quality furniture, this additional coverage can save you from future headaches and costs.

Quick Fixes for Common Issues

Loose Screws and Bolts

Regularly check and tighten any screws or bolts on your patio chairs. This simple maintenance task can prevent more significant problems, ensuring your chairs remain stable and safe.

Rust Removal

Use a rust remover or a paste made from baking soda and water for metal parts that develop rust. Apply it to the affected area, let it sit for a few minutes, and then scrub it with a brush. Rinse and dry thoroughly. Applying a rust-resistant paint or sealant coat can further protect the metal surfaces.

Fabric Repairs

Small tears or frays in the fabric can often be repaired with fabric glue or patches. Contact the manufacturer for replacement parts or professional repair services for more extensive damage.
