It’s obvious that your outdoor hammock chair is designed to withstand the weather. Although common sense suggests that if you would like to increase the lifespan of your outdoor hammock chair there are a few things you can do to take care of it.
Just like anything in life, if you wish for something to last longer there are ways to always increase the life span of your car, your body, your house and just about anything. So in this article we are going to share with you some tips to ensure you get the most out of your outdoor hammock chair.
Since your outdoor hammock chair is made from cotton for comfort as almost all of them are. Leaving cotton out in the rain is not the best should you wish to keep your outdoor hammock chair smelling fresh and looking clean.
The reason for this is because the rain has dirt particles in each droplet and when your outdoor hammock chair gets wet from the rain it becomes dirty. It too absorbs the water and if not dried out properly it can start to grow mold.
Your outdoor hammock chair can certainly age quite quickly if it is exposed to excessive amounts of sunlight too. Just like if you were to leave your beach towel hanging outside in the sun day in day out, it would start to fade and the cotton would become more course. Which doesn’t only look very aged but the feeling of the towel when it is used does not provide you the same soft comforting feeling as when you first bought it.
The same goes for your cotton outdoor hanging chair, it can fade quite quickly in the sun and loose its soft comfortable feeling that it originally had. Because the sun can fade the hammock chair, the longer it is left out the quicker the strength of the cotton diminishes too. That is not to say that your hammock chair will fall apart completely but if it’s not looked after correctly it could.
So what alternatives and tips are there to ensure your outdoor hammock chair has a longer life.
They are quite easy to remember but doing them on the other hand is easy to forget, especially when we don’t feel like doing these chors to keep it maintained.
First of all and quite logically, it is best to keep your outdoor hammock chair out of the sun for long periods of time especially if you are not using it. Instead bring it inside and fold it up somewhere out of the way. It is also very wise to bring the outdoor hammock chair in from the rain if it is going to get wet, you don’t want to leave it out there to absorb all that dirty moisture.
