Cleaning Painted Wooden Outdoor Furniture

Cleaning our 27 year old patio rocking chairs, table and a swing.
This past week I started cleaning our white painted wood outdoor furniture, a dreary task.  Only slightly better than power scrubbing or painting it again I supposed would be to scrub it down with water, a brush, and soft scrub.

I have never tried this before but I love soft scrub for so many things.  I thought, Why not? 
The bottom is our swing untreated and the top is as I scrub.

So off I went with a little pail of H2O, a small long handled brush, and the soft scrub.  First I wet down a section then squiggle out a bit of the scrub and then go at it with a bit of elbow grease.  Mostly I just brush at it as it works like a dream.  It did not take off the paint.  It turned a beautiful white and I am very happy.  I just wet, scrub , and rinse with the hose.

Back of the swing after rinsing off with the hose.
Our patio is quite shaded as we are in a woods like setting.  Black dirt and a bit of moss or mold, I can't tell which accumulate over the winter months on the furniture as we leave it out year around.  It has lasted beautifully and we have had it for about 27 years!!  It was built of treated lumber and we scrub it down every year and paint it as needed,

This will be how I do it again and again it really was a fast, and easy cure.

The work was ABSOLUTELY BETTER THAN I EXPECTED!!!! I will prescribe him to any hoping to redo any old furniture. My sister and I had this beige awesome calfskin love seat that my grandparents had deserted that we couldn't settle to dispose of on the grounds that it's so comfortable! It watched super exhausted and had a few tears from my puppy always bouncing up on it. I found out about the wonderful work Acesteam Upholstery Cleaning Canberra did on my companions old lounge chair so I chose to call them. Great costs and they were so speedy. The lounge chair has never looked better as well! Presently I don't have to go spend a fortune on purchasing another love seat.

I m a dog sweetheart and I have a pomellian puppy which is extremely underhanded and hop again n again on my leather seat which was skilled by my closest companion. Subsequently, it got stains and possess a scent reminiscent of my Bruno which leaves a terrible impact on my visitor. Along these lines, to defeat this issue I enlist Capital Upholstery Cleaning Canberra Who have a group of professionally gifted specialists, went to my home and clean my lounge chair. Presently my love seat looks as I recently got it.Much appreciated to Capital Upholstery Cleaning Canberra.

I had a lounge chair set that I bought most recent 5 months prior and is exceptionally costly. I have two children. One of my children is extremely lethargic. He is sitting on the couch and eating a burger and all of a sudden I don't recognize what he did, He through the burger on the sofa and I was stunned in light of the fact that it got a major stain which I endeavor to evacuate however not ready to expel it. In this manner I hire Upholstery Cleaning Canberra to clean my lounge chair. They went to my home and clean my love seat and discharge me from an overwhelming pressure. Because of ALL THE GUYS WHO COME TO MY HOUSE AND RESOLVE MY PROBLEM...I HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO HIRE THEIR SERVICE FOR CLEANING OF ALL TYPE OF UPHOLSTERY.

New Advance technology leather sofa Cleaning was in a bad condition. It needed cleaning and repairing too. When I called new SK Upholstery Cleaning Melbourne, I explained them everything and I was amazed to know that they visited the same day of booking for my leather sofa. And now, it appears as it newly came.They deals in all upholstery like Dining tables Melbourne, Chairs Melbourne , Drapes Melbourne.

I am too lazy to work and investing my energy in cleaning the stuff is not me! And, so I usually hire cleaning companies to do the tasks for me. Lately I have been very disappointed with the kind of services my old cleaning company provided.
I got in touch with Sparkling Upholstery Cleaning Brisbane on Google and was initially sceptical about their services. But, man they amazed me. I hired them for cleaning my upholstery and they did the job pretty well! They disinfected and sanitized my upholstery like new and also provided me with additional tips of taking care of upholstery.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

My kid accidentally spilled a soft drink on the couch, and I had no idea what to do next. I randomly called Fresh Upholstery Cleaning Adelaide by extracting contact from Google, and I must say, they are worth every penny spent!
I got a call from them immediately and they sent a team of professionals to my home for an inspection. They not only expelled the soft drink out from my couch but also made sure that the couch is dry so that it doesn’t attract any mold and mildew. I would recommend Fresh Upholstery Cleaning to everyone.

Shine Upholstery Cleaning are just ultimate saviors! I had a badly soiled upholstery. Basically, we went on a foreign tour for a month, and when we returned, my upholstery, couch – everything was coated with a thick layer of dust.
My husband suggested Shine Upholstery Cleaning Canberra as his friends have hired them a few times. And yes, they actually worked wonders. They not only helped in cleaning the upholstery, but also offered us a quick discount as a part of their promotional scheme.
I am glad and satisfied with the services I received. Without a doubt, they are the best!

Prompt services. Quick in communication. Best prices, and very courteous and friendly stuff. Probably one of the best upholstery cleaning companies. I am hiring Fresh Upholstery Cleaning Sydney back and again for 2 years now for a range of jobs and greatly satisfied with their work. Kudos to the team, and their manager who is particularly responsible and accountable. Try Fresh Upholstery Cleaning services once!
