The smell in the air. The crisp mornings. The pumpkin lattes at your local coffee shop.
Ready or not, winter is coming. This time of year, we get many people wondering how they should care for their Loll furniture during the coming months. The answer is really quite simple: You don’t need to do anything at all – that’s the beauty of no-maintenance outdoor furniture.
But, let’s touch on a few common questions we get.
Do I need to store my Loll furniture inside?
Under average winter conditions, the answer is nope. Loll furniture was meant to spend its days al fresco throughout all four season. It’s made in Duluth, MN, and tested to withstand some pretty bad winters. That being said, we don’t recommend leaving it in an area that is susceptible to high drifting or piling of snow – (think eaves, snow-blowers and snowplows). The weight of a lot of wet, heavy snow over an extended amount of time can compromise the material. Remember, it’s really durable, but not indestructible. Here are some fun shots of our furniture enduring the winter elements.
Our furniture is even used at ski hills. In fact, Spirit Mountain in Duluth uses our poly material in their terrain park. They’ve chosen it specifically because of its durability outdoors and in cold and wet conditions.
Do I need to cover my furniture?
Nope. Loll furniture prefers the el natural.
How do I spruce up my furniture in the spring?
Most often, a simple hose-off will do the trick. If there is more dirt, a wet rag and natural spray cleaner should be sufficient. Microfiber towels also work great. If there is dirt embedded in the texture, use mild soap and water and a stiff but gentle-bristled brush. You can power wash your furniture if you like that sort of thing. Also check out our eco-friendly cleaning kit. It includes everything you need to spruce up your furniture – the natural way.
