Have you already been swimming this summer? Did you take time to thoroughly clean your swimming pool deck and your pool furniture? How to clean your swimming pool furniture, in addition to why you should, is something the swimming pool service contractors from Express Pool Care, serving Goodyear and Laveen Arizona, talk with their customers about.

Monsoon driven dust, dirt, debris and rain and simply being out in the elements can lead to wear and tear on your pool furniture. Taking time to clean the pool furniture will remove grit and debris as well as helping keep your pool furniture useful for more years. Whether you’re a year-round swimmer or if you close your pool for the season, now is the time to clean the furniture. Cleaning it early in the season will assure it’s clean, ready and ready to use when you’re ready to use it!

Pool furniture takes a lot of punishment from chlorine-soaked bathing suits, exposure to sun and heat and other weather elements takes its toll. Even though your pool furniture is designed for outdoor, poolside use, it can still use a good cleaning.

How to clean your swimming pool furniture

In order to get the most use out of your pool furniture, buy the best that you can. Here are tips for buying the best furniture:

  1. Look for fabrics that are durable, washable and even have removable covers.
  2. Look for pool furniture fabrics and materials that are easy to clean — make sure you clean them according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  3. When choosing pool furniture, fiberglass is a great choice; it’s affordable, stylish and best of all, durable.

If you have umbrellas or awnings providing shade to your pool and outdoor living space, grab a ladder and someone to hold it for you and clean them as well. Clean according to manufacturer’s instructions. If you’re cleaning an umbrella, lie it in the sun — open — to dry before you close it up.

Looking to upgrade or update your poolside furniture? Ask us for advice. When you buy furniture, make sure you sit in it in shorts — you want to make sure it will feel comfortable against your legs when you’re in a bathing suit.
