Clean your furniture
You always need to make sure your outdoor furniture is clean, even if you currently have your furniture covered. Even under a cover or tarp, dust and dirt can accumulate, which will be an unpleasant surprise come spring. On warmer days, use mild soap and water to clean your furniture. If you’re unsure of what to use, follow the manufacturer’s guide.

Once your outdoor living furniture is cleaned, you’ll want to use some kind of coat to protect its surfaces. Different types of furniture is going to require different coating methods.
For textiles: Fabric protector
