Outdoor steel furniture is a great option to uplift the look of your garden or patio. Steel furniture is usually coated with paint or varnish to prevent them from rusting and to make them last longer. However, with the passage of time and constant use, the paint will wear off leaving behind a worn off object on your patio.
The unpredictable weather in Brisbane and the Gold Coast exposes the furniture to further damage. It is important to make sure that your steel furniture is coated with high-quality paint to keep it looking new for a long time.
Outdoor furniture is usually covered with powder coat paint or another kind of protective finish, and usually comes with a warranty. If you are looking for low maintenance outdoor furniture, then look for the ones that give you a warranty of 3-7 years.
Your outdoor furniture will be exposed to bird droppings and pollen stains which can be carefully removed with a rag soaked in soapy water. Bird droppings must be removed immediately, because the acid it contains can eat through the paint. However, make sure that you do not use any kind of chemical or disinfectant for cleaning as they can react with the outer coat of the furniture and damage it very quickly.
Removing stains on a regular basis will ensure that your outdoor furniture lasts for a long time. Washing it on a regular basis with a garden pipe while you water your grass is also a great way to reduce labour and save time. If you want to get rid of the little stains of rust that builds on some worn out patches, you could remove them gently and carefully with sandpaper or wire brush.
