Congratulations on purchasing the combination of conservation and beauty by adding a deck box to your patio. And when you start using it, you’ll find that the deck box will be the perfect place to store everything your patio needs, while keeping it conveniently accessible to all your guests. While your pillows and other accessories may find themselves protected and cared for in the safety and comfort of your box, the outside of your box may wear out over time. While it may now shine with natural beauty, you will slowly see the charm and splendor fade away. A stationary target opens to collect dirt, debris, and other depressing objects as time passes. Making the perfect addition to your patio look more like the perfect pile of soil.
The attraction of dirt and debris is a natural event that happens to every deck box over time. Because it stays in one place all year round (and even year round in some cases), everything Mother Nature throws up, out and around will eventually end up against the walls of your beautiful deck box. Knowing how you can protect and clean this piece of furniture now will ensure the protection of your investment for years to come, without the hassle of constantly refining.
If you have a plastic box, cleaning from time to time will be a much easier process – a natural attraction for those who live in places where you can visit all four seasons. Since plastic is a solid, non-porous material, keeping it clean is a very simple process. Taking a mild detergent (like dish soap) and lukewarm water on your plastic box will keep it clean all year round – apply when needed and let that natural shine return to your blanket box. For larger projects, taking a harsher cleaner will help remove longer-lasting stains. Always check what’s in the cleaner before applying it to your plastic box; the wrong cleaner could consume the plastic and eventually tear down your box.
If you have a wooden playpen, taking care of your investment may take many more steps before it becomes easier. The materials it is made of will ultimately determine the best way to tackle the sealing and cleaning of your outdoor furniture. While hardwoods like cedar can be treated with oil to keep them protected, other woods (like pine or cypress) can be colored to give it an extra layer of protection, or even painted to your liking. The addition of these protective barriers gives your box a solid layer of protection against the elements, protecting it from anything the world wants to throw at it and more. Plus, once your box has this key protective layer set, cleaning can be as simple as carrying a sponge and warm water to your box.
But if your wooden box becomes too overloaded with dirt and debris, you can always start over by applying a gentle sanding all over the box. Sanding the outer layer of the wood gives you a chance to start over, removing the grimy layer of dirt and debris that will eventually remain on your box. Plus, sanding the wood allows you to change which direction you want to go with your box. If you want to change the stain, or even paint a new pattern along the box, just sand and start your masterpiece all over again.
Knowing how to keep your deck box clean throughout the seasons will help you get the best results and offer maximum protection for your investment. By following the steps to keep your box clean now, you’ll ensure years of joy and protection for all your patio accessories.
