Winter indeed, is one of the most awaited times of the year when people make excuses and seek escape from their busy schedules to enjoy the chilly weather outside. Restaurants especially gear up with winter-oriented menus and go the extra mile to make the sitting comfortable and warm for the guests.
But one crucial aspect that restaurant owners often tend to ignore is the impact of winter on their outdoor furniture. The drop in temperature and moisture in the air can literally affect their longevity.
If you are looking for ways to protect your outdoor restaurant furniture from the freezing winds outside, this blog is meant for you. Give it a read! Start with thorough cleaning: Depending on the material of the restaurant furniture, you need to wash them with bleach or soap. Wash every piece of furniture thoroughly to remove all the traces of grimes, rust and accumulated dirt. Do not forget to pay extra attention to the crevices.
2. Get minor and major damages repaired: If there are any kind of noticeable damages, make sure you get them repaired as soon as possible. Joints and weld points often get affected by the temperature dip and hence it is necessary that you get the brackets and bolts tightened. Torn fabrics and broken zippers should also be repaired in time. If you keep them unattended throughout the season, the quality of the furniture may further deteriorate.
3. Apply a layer of paint: Are there any scratches on your restaurant table? Is the paint on them fading away? Winter is the right time to get your furniture painted. Mark the areas or patches that require a fresh layer of paint. Once the paint has dried up, you can apply a layer of sealant to add extra protection and durability to the furniture.
Store the ones that you won’t be needing throughout the winter season: If you are planning not to usea few of your restaurant furniture in winter, then it is better to store them away safely. Before storing them, it is better to disassemble the furniture pieces. Do not forget to wrap them in plastic. The storage space should not get direct exposure to sunlight. Also, there should be a system of temperature control.
Now that you know how to take care of your outdoor restaurant chair and other pieces of furniture, without any delay, start prepping up to safeguard them from winter.
