Weather-resistant furniture or weather-resistant patio furniture can enrich our outdoor life, but outdoor furniture protection also faces many problems.
3-1 High humidity environment creates a growth environment for mold
If you live in areas with heavy rain or high humidity, you need to ensure that the furniture can resist various problems caused by moisture. Humidity can provide an environment for mold to thrive, which may cause unnecessary breathing problems for your child or family and affect their health.

Uneven furniture drying subjected to rainwater infiltration will cause shape change, distortion, or deformation. You may soon be able to observe their changes.

The action of water and oxygen causes corrosion. Lead to problems in the firmness of furniture and even affect the beauty and integrity of the furniture. In a beautiful garden or your lawn, you may prefer to have a set of iron garden tables and chairs.
If you live in a high humidity environment or there is a lot of rain, you should consider replacing your previous choice with a plastic garden chair or Wicker Dining chair. Or choose a folding lounge chair that you can store when you're not using it.
3-4 Strong sunlight and temperature
Intense sunlight exposure for a long time will also cause furniture to face many problems. If you use plastic furniture, you may face a great test of the firmness of the furniture.
Iron furniture is exposed to long-term irradiation or in a low-temperature environment for a long time, resulting in the discomfort of the human body when using furniture, resulting in the feeling of burning or freezing. Due to the physical principle of thermal expansion and cold contraction, the furniture is distorted, and the parts fall off and are damaged. The firmness of the furniture is extensively tested.
We will consider choosing some wooden garden chairs with a better antioxidant effect than plastic furniture. Similarly, it makes you feel relatively comfortable when exposed to the sun for a long time. When choosing furniture made of wood materials, you'd better know the place where the furniture is produced. The furniture produced in places with similar latitudes has little change in climate temperature and humidity and minor change in the shape of the furniture. Maybe Rattan Garden suit is also a good choice for weather-resistant patio furniture.
