How should i store my Natural Rattan Garden Furniture?

Store your Natural Rattan Garden Furniture properly and ensure a longer lifespan.


You should ensure you have stored your Natural Rattan Garden Furniture properly. Any humidity in the air will lead to a sprout of mould and mildew through the furniture. There are certain factors you should think about before taking your rattan indoors. For example, you should be careful of any plants you may have in the same room as any rattan. If you have many plants it may be better to look at a metal or resin based furniture. As this won’t be as vulnerable to mould.

Leaving your natural rattan furniture is something you should only do on a dry day. You should ensure you bring your rattan indoors if there is bad weather forecast. It is important that your furniture has rubber footing, if you plan using the furniture on grass. This will stop any moisture travelling from the grass to your furniture. The rubber footing will also stop any unwanted splitting or swelling on the rattan feet. Natural Rattan can only be used outdoors on a dry day and must be brought indoors if rain is forecast.

The best place to store your rattan furniture is a dry, frost free space.  The constant airflow will prevent any unwanted mildew cultivating on your furniture. If you are storing your furniture for winter, give the set a quick clean or vacuum before putting it away. This will remove any unwanted bugs or mould and prevent damage taking place in storage.
