Pets can bring so much joy to your life, but they can also result in furniture becoming increasingly dirtier than normal. If you have outdoor furniture on a patio outside that your pets have access to, you'll need to set aside some time for cleaning the furniture regularly. Understanding the right techniques for cleaning your outdoor furniture can keep them in great shape.
Wipe Down Any Surfaces
Dogs often drool all over the place and cats can track their footprints onto surfaces, making your furniture a target for dirt and grime. Before spot cleaning or taking care of any fabrics, you'll need to use a towel and cleaning solution to wipe down the surfaces thoroughly.
Remove Linens and Clean
Your patio furniture likely has numerous soft fabrics on it, from throw pillows to seat cushions. While these fabrics are generally weather-proof, making them safe against damage by the sun or rain, you'll still need to clean them regularly. This means unzipping any pillow and cushion covers and throwing them into a washing machine for a good cleaning so that any dirt and bad odors are removed.
Focus on Any Small Details
After you've taken care of a general cleaning of your furniture, you'll need to look out for any smaller signs of wear and dirt. This means focusing on any crevices and using small brushes to get your furniture looking clean again.
