How to Keep Your Pool Furniture Looking New All Year Round

The pool furniture is built to withstand the elements, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it can make it through high humidity and constant usage without looking any less disheveled. Routine cleaning is the secret to keeping your pool accessories and furniture in pristine condition. And you don’t have to work that hard for it either. If you invest in just two cleanings – at the beginning of the season and the end of summer – you will not only transform your pool furniture for the better, but you’ll also prolong its life.  Read More…

Without further ado, here’s what you need to know to keep your cool pool accessories looking fresh and clean all year round.

Before You Start…

It’s paramount to check the manufacturer’s cleaning suggestion first. For instance, bleach is a preferred solution for cleaning plastic furniture, but it might not be suitable for your vinyl strap pool furniture. In fact, bleach, ammonia, chlorine, and other harsh abrasives can strip off the UV protection of the straps.

Strap Pool Furniture

The vinyl straps on pool loungers become dirty and oily from suntan lotions and weather. Not to mention that the constant humidity can cause them to fade prematurely. Here’s how to clean them properly.

What you need:

  • Mild detergent
  • Garden hose
  • Bucket
  • Soft bristle scrub brush
Spray the loungers with the hose to remove any dirt of the straps and frame. Combine ¼ cup of mild detergent with one gallon of warm water. Mix the water to ensure the detergent dissolves properly. Dip the brush into the mixture and scrub the chairs one strap at a time. Spray the pool furniture with the hose to rinse the detergent.

White Plastic Deck Chairs

White plastic deck chairs are an affordable solution for your pool furniture. However, you don’t want your guests (or your family for what matters) to have to sit on dirty chairs. That’s why you need to learn how to clean them properly and keep them in pristine condition.

What you need:

  • Bucket
  • ¼ cup vinegar
  • Hot water
  • Soft bristle scrub brush
Use a garden hose to remove any dirt from the chairs. Mix ¼ cup of vinegar with one gallon of hot water (but not boiling.) Use the scrub brush to remove any suntan spots, dust, dirt or dried food. Rinse the chairs with fresh water and let them dry.

Wood Pool Deck

One of the simplest ways to keep your wooden deck in top condition is to sweep and remove debris regularly. Sweep it just once every couple of weeks and you will start to notice a difference.
Another preferred solution is pressure cleaning. A pressure washer can clean a wood deck much faster and efficiently than scrubbing by hand. However, this technique is known to destroy the surface of the wood.
The best alternative is to mix oxygen bleach with water to create a powerful cleaning solution. You will have to do some addition scrubbing to get your deck squeaky clean, but the effort is worth it.
There you have it. These tips should help you restore your pool furniture to its former glory. All that’s left now is to kick back and relax.
