It’s clear that small balcony furniture sets don’t come in one type or mold. That means there are specific procedures and steps that have to be followed when it comes to caring for different pieces. There is however a couple of general maintenance steps you can take for most types of outdoor furniture.
Some small balcony furniture sets are so durable that you can leave them exposed for long periods of time. As a general rule though, it is always a good practice to use outdoor furniture covers on your outdoor pieces. These provide extra protection against moisture and sun exposure. Moreover, covers reduce the need for you to frequently clean balcony furniture sets.
You can take a chance leaving your teak, iron or plastic furniture outside during winter. If you really want to avoid every possibility of damage however, you should simply just store your small balcony furniture sets inside the garage on cold months. This is a good way of ensuring that your set lasts for many more decades. General regular cleaning is a must. This often simply involves using water and small amounts of mild soap on your furniture twice a year. This period of thorough cleaning can be performed before autumn and before spring in time for storage or use. Make sure your set is thoroughly dry before storing it to prevent damages due to moisture or mildew.
