Winter Weather Can Damage Your Outdoor Entertainment Area

Fall weather might have had a slow start, but winter is in full swing. Most of the country is experiencing arctic temperatures, and it happened abruptly. You might have been enjoying your outdoor fire pit, and now you can’t stand outside to find your car key. It’s cold. This weather doesn’t just affect your heating bill; it can also damage your outdoor entertainment area. Even if you haven’t prepped your outdoor space for winter, there is time to prevent damage from happening.Winter Weather Damage To Outdoor Areas Image - Concord NC - IBD Outdoor

Prevent Dry Rot, Mildew, and Mold

You can save yourself a lot of work and hassle by simply storing certain things in a garage, shed, or house. Cloth furnishings should be taken indoors to avoid damage to the upholstery. Most patio furniture is equipped with separate cloth cushions so they can be easily removed and stored. Other things that should be removed and stored include curtains, coverings, and decorative elements. If you cannot remove items or store furniture, you can protect your furnishings with a roof or custom cover.

Prevent Rust, Stains, and Deterioration

Your cup holders, sinks, and fire pit will hold water if allowed. Throughout winter, rain and snow fall and collect in these spaces. This moisture will freeze and damage your appliances, furniture, and fire pit. Many cup holders in tables and chairs are removable. If they aren’t removable, cover them. Protect your fire pit with a custom cover, and cover your sinks, or disconnect the drain so that water runs out of them. This will prevent water damage and keep debris from clogging your drains and pipes.

Prevent Damaged Pipes and Connections

Before you forget your outdoor space for winter, disconnect the water from the sink, refrigerator, and any other connection that can freeze and bust. It’s best to also disconnect the gas line to the fire pit, stove, or grill since it will be several weeks or months until you use theses appliances. If you have electricity in your outdoor entertainment area, you should be able to shut it off so that there is no risk of complications, damage, or fire to your belongings.

Protect the Inside of Your Cabinets

Your cabinets are made to withstand the outdoors, but the things you have in your cabinet are not. Double-check that you don’t have items in your entertainment area that can freeze and bust, making a mess that you’ll have to clean later. Open cabinets can allow water in to damage the structure and materials inside as well. These storage areas are a great place for furniture cushions. Take perishables out, and put cloth pillows, curtains, and cushions in. Then lock them up so they’re secure.
