Outdoor Tarp – The Surprising Benefits of Using Tarps to Protect Outdoor Furniture

Tarp for Outdoor Use

Outdoor furniture (on the lawn, patio, or deck) is an expensive investment that should be protected by all means. Some of the common destructive elements you need to watch out for include UV rays, rain, snow, and dirt. Investing in a vinyl cover will not only protect your furniture from fading but will also increase its lifespan significantly. That means you’ll get to enjoy both short-term and long-term benefits as well.

Here are some of the major implications of covering your outdoor furniture with tarps:

1. UV Protection 

Long exposure of your patio, garden, and/or deck furniture to UV rays can greatly harm their fabrics and coatings. However, covering the furniture with heavy-duty vinyl tarps can help keep them looking new for the longest time possible. That means you will maintain the beauty of the furniture while preserving its value as well.

2. Clean and Dry Seating 

Vinyl tarps not only provide protection against UV rays but also ensure the outdoor furniture is clean and dry. With that, you can comfortably leave your furniture on the lawn or patio all year round, even through winter. Moreover, you won’t have to worry about destructive elements like dust, rain, and/or snow.

3. Mold and Mildew Resistance 

Using waterproof canvas to protect outdoor furniture can be a great idea. However, condensation and/or accumulation of moisture under the tarp can lead to mold formation. To help prevent the development of mold, you should consider buying a custom fabricated furniture cover. The waterproof covering should be made of solid vinyl material at the top to provide a waterproof layer.

The sides should be made out of 90 percent mesh material to allow for sufficient airflow of the covered furniture parts. You can also opt for a tarp made of 60 percent mesh on the side for even better air circulation. So long as the tarp is still resistant to dust and rain, you can settle for any of the two mesh counts.

It’s important to understand that you need mold and mildew-resistant tarps especially when covering fabric and other materials that can absorb moisture. However, if you want to cover wooden furniture, unpadded chairs, or outdoor tables, you can simply use the regular solid vinyl covers. Always remember it’s important to leave some space between the ground and the tarp when covering furniture so as to allow for air movement.  Ask Us today to learn more if our tarps at Tarp Hire Australia suit your needs.
