How to Maintain a Wooden Picnic Table
As the benefits of al fresco dining become more widely acknowledged, the wooden picnic table as an accessory in homes, restaurants and many other locations becomes increasingly popular. Eating outside in nature with friends and family and soaking up the sun can increase Vitamin D absorption, naturally boosting mood and immune system. Purchasing a table is an investment in any environment, so knowing how to maintain a wooden picnic table is critical.
Tips for maintenance
Here are three key things to remember to keep your table in the best condition possible:
1. Choose your wooden picnic table wisely
We construct all our wooden tables using sustainably sourced, heavy-duty timbers, making them an excellent choice for any location. Consider the quality and finish of the wood when making your purchasing decision, ensuring the durability of your investment.
2. Keep your wooden picnic table clean
The best way to do this is to first brush and then wipe down your picnic table with a cloth moistened with a mild soap and water solution after each use and then rinse well.
At times the table may require a deeper clean to remove nasty stains. To remove stubborn stains, mix water and dishwasher detergent and gently scrub in the direction of the wood’s grain using a soft brush. Rinse well.
3. Regular sealant application
An annual sealant product application will help protect your outdoor wooden picnic table from water penetration and deterioration.
Sealants are transparent, enhancing the colour and ensuring your table’s longevity.
