Canopy and patio swings bring relaxation right to your yard. Have a drink and a deep conversation, or take much needed alone time while gently swaying in the breeze. Protect your method of relaxation with a swing cover and ensure years of future use.
4 Reasons to Use a Swing Cover
Keep your swing in great condition for years to come. Here are some of the conditions a cover can protect your swing from:
Sun exposure: Depending on what your swing is made of, UV rays and heat can destroy your swing. Metal swings are pretty sun-resistant, but wood and wicker can dry out, fade, and splinter in the sun, weakening and eventually breaking the swing. Plastic and synthetic wicker can melt in the sun’s heat, warping the swing. Using a swing cover will also keep your outdoor seating cool and ready for use, even during the hottest part of the summer.
Moisture: A cover keeps the swing out of the rain and stops dew from forming, preventing mildew and mold. If water condenses under the cover, breathable covers let moisture escape so water is on the seat for less time.
Dirt and debris: A cover keeps your swing clean from dust, leaves, and other debris so it is ready to use without having to clean it first.
Protection from pests: If your swing has cushions, pests may tear apart your cushions for nesting material or choose to make their home directly in the cushions. A cover prevents pests from accessing your swing.
How to Put on a Swing Cover
We recommend using two people to put a swing cover on.
- Unfold the cover. Completely detach all Velcro.
- Place the cover underneath the swing with the elastic hem facing the ground and the mesh vent at the back of the swing.
- Pull the vent side of the cover up until the Velcro edge meets the top of the backrest. Hold the cover in this position.
- Beginning with the front arm on the left, attach the Velcro on the front of cover to the Velcro on the back cover. Continue attaching the Velcro until the cover is fully attached.
