The temps are slowly dropping, which means autumn is in full swing! But is your outdoor space ready for the ice and snow that follows? From prepping your lawn to keeping your deck clear, here are the important tasks you’ll need to complete before this season is over:

Metal Furniture

  • Wash all surfaces with water and detergent. Scrub and rinse with a hose.
  • Apply a thin, protective coat of car wax to all surfaces.

Wicker Furniture
  • Use a bleach-and-water solution to clean and remove mildew. Rinse with a fine spray from a garden hose and dry thoroughly.
  • Store wicker furniture in a dry place and on blocks to keep it off the floor or ground.

Fabric Cushions and Other Fabrics
  • Wash any cloth or rope materials, like hammocks, with laundry detergent; dry, fold, and store indoors.
  • Clean umbrella fabric with mild detergent. Dry in an open position and store in a closed position.
  • If any patio furniture have removable covers, clean them with a little bleach if the label allows — this will help kill any mildew.
  • Once dried, apply the covers and stack the cushions loosely in a clean, dry space off the floor.

Store your Cushions with Triple S
  • Leave the fabric on the cushions, bring them to one of our THREE locations. Or better yet, we can pick them up and delivery them to you!
  • Our certified staff will thoroughly hand clean, and remove and spills, spots, or stains.
  • We will apply our ProSeal Fabric Protector to help keep fabric water resistant and prevent future stains.
  • Our last step is our Antimicrobial Treatment, which helps inhibit the growth of bacteria and eliminates mildew on face fibers.
