Your Yardbird Furniture set is designed to withstand the elements and won’t splinter or rot in extreme temperatures. However, the ice, snow, and blistering cold brought by the winter months can have a drastic effect on the longevity of your set. With that in mind, we highly recommend that you prepare your furniture for the winter months.
If space provides, it’s ideal to move your furniture into a sheltered location such as your garage, shed, or basement. Unfortunately, few people have the luxury of extra space for a bulky item like furniture.
If your set must remain outdoors, follow these steps to protect your furniture from the elements:
Clean all furniture with mild soap and water. Dry completely with a soft cloth. Consolidate pieces into the smallest possible space. Remove cushions and store indoors. Cover set with a high-quality outdoor furniture cover. This will help avoid extended periods of direct sunlight and will result in minimal fading over time.
