Protecting Outdoor Furniture for Long Term Performance

Posted on: August 23rd, 2016 by byersbushblog

Whether you run a wedding supply company, an outdoor community center or you just have a lot of folding chair and other outdoor furniture that needs to be kept in good shape, it is important that you take the proper precautions in order to preserve your investment and keep your equipment functioning properly and rust-free over time.

If your company owns a lot of outdoor furniture you likely know just how expensive it is. That is why it makes sense to spend a bit more money to properly protect your furniture so that it lasts longer and you can avoid expensive replacement costs.

Powder Coat Any Metal

One of the most important steps for you to take for your furniture is to powder coat any metal parts of it. Metal is at risk of rusting and weathering in general, and it is up to you to make sure that it remains in good condition over time.

When you powder coat the metal you cover it with a protective covering that helps keep moisture and other weathering issues out. Not only are the coatings protective and good for preserving the metal over time, but they allow you to change the look of your equipment as well. That means you can alter the colors of your furniture to match the look of your company more properly.

If you don’t want to deal with having your products professionally coated you could always have them painted as well. While that’s often slightly more affordable, the coating isn’t going to last as long, and it won’t be as reliable. It’s important to note that you will have plenty of different color options to choose from whether you go with a powder coat or a paint coating.

Keep Clean and Fresh

A good protective coating is one important way to keep your furniture in good shape, but it’s not the only way to do so. Another vital step in keeping your equipment in good shape is keeping it clean and debris free.

That means scrubbing off the cushions, wiping down the arms and legs, and generally keeping everything as clean as possible. Not only will keeping your furniture clean help the image of your company, but keeping the items free of debris is helpful in keeping it in good condition over time.

Replenish Coatings over Time

A paint coating won’t last as long as a powder coating, but no matter which one you choose you will have to replenish it over time as it begins to crack, chip, peel and come apart. Every company should take the time to examine their furniture now and then to find out when it is beginning to lose its protective coating.

As soon as a break in the coating is noticeable it’s time to remove that coating and put a new one in its place. It takes time and money to replace one coating with another, but it’s worth the effort in order to keep all the equipment functioning properly.

By spending a bit of money to maintain a protective coating on your chairs, tables and other outdoor equipment, you can keep them in good shape over time and avoid expensive replacement costs.

Just make sure that you hire a professional company to handle all your powder coating needs. By hiring professionals you ensure that you are going to get good results with your coatings.

You will spend a bit more money initially, but your equipment will last longer and you will save a great deal over time. That is worth the effort and the investment to most businesses that are interested in their long-term costs.
