If you live in North Carolina, it’s likely that you’re being drenched with rain this week. In fact, this winter has held more rain days than most. So, with these inclement conditions, you may be wondering how you can protect your outdoor furniture from all of this rain.

Hauling outdoor furniture inside every time it rains, is not convenient or ideal. For many, it’s not even possible, because there’s no where indoors to store this furniture. Fortunately, there are other options to ensure that your furniture is protected from the rain.

Truworth Homes recommends following these steps to keep your furniture safe during a storm:

  • As a preventative method, you can apply water repellent to your outdoor furniture before it ever rains. That way, when that wet weather hits, your furniture will already be protected from the elements. These sprays can be used for any furniture that has fabric, such as patio chairs and outdoor couch cushions.
  • You can also invest in some furniture covers to keep your outdoor furniture dry and protected from the rain.
  • If you own any wooden outdoor furniture, you can cover it with water sealant to protect it from getting damaged by wet weather.
  • Keeping an eye on the forecast can also help you to protect your outdoor furniture before wet weather hits. You can move furniture to a covered porch or garage, or you can follow any of the above steps to protect furniture that is left out in the rain.
