Believe it or not, winter is right around the corner in the Northern Hemisphere! Most of us are still enjoying the beauty of autumn, but it will only be a few weeks for some before winter precipitation starts to hit. That means that right now is the best time to consider the steps you’ll take to protect your investment.
Start with a Clean Adirondack Chair
Before the winter precipitation hits, it’s a good idea to give your Adirondack chair a thorough cleaning. This ensures that no mildew, mold, or stains from the summer are allowed to grow worse over the winter. A mild soap and warm water, applied to your chair with a basic sponge, is all that you need. Gently clean the surface of the chair all over, and allow to dry completely. You can either air dry the chair, or use a towel to help the process along. If there are any areas on the chair that need to be sanded, this is a good time to address that. Our Adirondack chairs are left unstained to allow the natural beauty of wood to shine.
Cover Your Adirondack Chair
Unless you are sitting in your chair enjoying the crisp, refreshing winter air, it can be covered during the winter months to avoid the snow and ice. We offer patio chair covers at The Best Adirondack Chair that perfectly fit our Classic Chair, Royal Chair, Grand Chairs, Forever Chairs, and Lounges. These covers are ventilated to keep the wood fresh, UV protected to prevent fading, weather resistant, and crack resistant to last for years. They also have snaps on the legs to keep the cover on in windy conditions. Covering your chair is the best option for a chair that will be outdoors or in a non-climate-controlled environment, such as a shed or garage, during the winter. If you prefer, you can also wrap your chair in a large tarp and secure with bungee cords or rope – however, be aware that this option is not foolproof in the face of severe winter storms.
Store Your Adirondack Chair Safely
Finally, you can also choose to store your chair for the winter. If you clean and cover your Adirondack chair, you should have nothing to worry about with our high quality products. However, storing your patio chair is the best way to be absolutely sure it won’t be damaged by winter storms. Bring your chair inside to create a cozy spot in the basement where you can relax just like you did outside in the summer. Or store in an attic or storage unit to keep your chair safely out of the way. It’s a good idea to ensure that the storage area is moisture-free and not prone to attracting pests. Our beautiful Adirondack chairs can be just as lovely and useful as part of your indoor décor, particularly if you need extra seating for the holiday guests.
If you want to be absolutely sure that your Adirondack chair is ready for next year, consider doing all three. Clean your chair, cover it well, and store in a dry, pest-free place. By the time next summer rolls around, your chair will be as good as new!
