There’s no such thing as too much outdoor time. Spending weekends laying on the ledge after a long day is a tried and true practice in our self-care routine. With that in mind, we know the importance of maintaining your personal escape. These simple cleaning and care tips will ensure your in-pool furniture is ready for you to lay back, relax and enjoy the day.
Once you’ve turned your ledge into the ultimate relaxation station, it’s hard to stay away. Spending more time on your in-pool furniture means more oil buildup and spills, but don’t let that keep you off the ledge. Maintaining a sleek ledge look starts with regularly rinsing your furniture. Use a standard water hose or your regular pool water to rinse away oils and spills after every few uses.
While regular rinsing reduces set-in stains, your in-pool furniture requires a little extra TLC every now and then to maintain the look you love. For routine cleaning, we recommend spraying a mild household cleaner and using an eraser sponge to spot clean and remove buildup at least once a month. You can also use a diluted bleach solution, if necessary.
Sometimes a stain on your furniture is not caused dirt or oil build-up. In this case, the most common culprit of those unsightly water lines is calcium build-up. This is caused by increased calcium levels in your pool water. If you are experiencing this issue, use a calcium, lime and rust removing cleanser to eliminate the build-up and water lines.
Sometimes stains are stubborn and require a little more than general cleaning. To deep clean set-in stains, we recommend draining and removing your in-pool furniture to prepare for cleaning.
Once removed, spray on a deep mold & mildew stain remover and allow it to sit in the sun for at least 30 minutes. Once the power of the sun has done some of the heavy lifting, scrub with a non-scratch scrub sponge or eraser sponge and rinse away dirt and residual cleaner.
For the toughest stains, power washing is an option. We always recommend starting with a low PSI and standing at least 3 feet away from the product.
Now that your in-pool furniture is nice and clean, lay back, relax and enjoy a long day of lounging!
