Metal patio furniture makes an excellent choice for outdoor spaces. It is elegant and attractive and enhances the ambiance of the patio. Metal furniture is durable and with minimal maintenance, will last several years.
Keep Furniture Dry When water or moisture settles on your metal furniture, it facilitates the process of rusting. Metal outdoor furniture is more resilient to water effects than wicker or wooden furniture. However, it is best to keep it dry as much as possible. Avoid letting water remain on your furniture for extended periods, as this will facilitate rust setting in.
Keep Furniture Covered
Patio chair upholstery is a great idea. Not only will it dress up your chairs, but it also provides significant protection from the elements. Use cushions, chair-backs and arm covers on your metal patio chairs to reduce exposure to moisture and heat, thereby minimizing the incidence of rust.
Apply Paste Wax A paste wax provides excellent protection from rust because of its water-resistant qualities. It also helps in maintaining the fine appearance of your outdoor metal furniture. Be sure to clean your furniture first before you apply the paste wax. You also need to wait until the furniture is completely dry before applying paste wax. Use a wide paint brush to apply the protector over the entire surface of the furniture.
