Steps to Pack Away Your Patio Furniture

It’s sad but true, fall is here and winter is coming. It’s time to pack up the patio furniture. And no, leaving the patio furniture out all year will not make spring come any faster. Trust me, I’ve tried. So to make things a little easier, follow these tips to pack away the furniture before the snow arrives.

Clean
The first step in packing away the patio furniture is to clean everything. Outdoor furniture can get very dirty being exposed to the elements. It’s better to clean all of the dirt off the furniture now before putting it away so that you don’t have to worry about it next spring. Also, check to see if there are any little “friends”, aka insects, living on or under the chairs or tables and clear ‘em outta there.

Pack
After cleaning the furniture, it’s time to disassemble and pack. Take apart tables and chairs that come in multiple pieces. Secure loose items, like bolts or pins, in a Ziploc bag and tape it to the larger piece. Also, wrap all of the parts together so they are easy to find and put back together. Properly pack any glass tops using craft paper and bubble wrap to make sure that they don’t break.

Store
The last step is storing. Feel free to store the patio furniture in a shed, basement or a storage unit, wherever. But keep in mind that you will have to dig it back up in about 6 or 7 months. So keep the furniture out of the way but not so far out of the way that you have to fish it out from under all of the holiday decorations when spring comes.
