Because your outdoor furniture spends much of its time outdoors, it’s bound to collect dirt, dust, and other debris. It’s best that you clean off your outdoor furniture before it transfers the grime onto your other belongings during the move. Use a damp towel to wipe away the easy to clean stuff and a hose to clear off stubborn build up.
Unwanted stowaways such as small critters and bugs can make shelter in your outdoor furniture. The nooks and crannies in your outdoor furniture can be great hiding spots for small animals and bugs. Always check and double check to make sure there aren’t any unwanted guests joining you on your move.
When packing outdoor furniture, remove cushions from seating and secure them in plastic wrap to avoid dirt and dust, fragile components, such as glass, should be removed and wrapped well. Another thing to consider is that while outdoor furniture is built to be durable, without proper protection you risk sharp edges and hard parts damaging your other belongings. These edges should be padded with cushioning materials to prevent the damaging of your other goods.
