With Spring in full swing and pollen count hitting record highs, its important to take the time to protect your outdoor furniture! AuthenTEAK offers an assortment of outdoor furniture, umbrella and grill covers. Pollen can create a fine layer of greenish-yellow residue on furniture and outdoor covers eliminate the need to continue to clean during the Spring season. Tree-pollen season generally lasts from March through May.

Outdoor entertaining is becoming more popular and research indicates that people are spending more on outdoor patio furniture. Many people only cover their furniture in the winter, but it is becoming more popular to cover outdoor furniture year round when not in use. While most of today’s patio furniture is constructed of waterproof materials, there are certain elements that can cause damage or at the very least create a mess that takes time to clean up.  Dust, dirt, bird droppings, etc are a major source of concern and create quite a mess to clean if patio furniture is not properly covered and protected.  In certain parts of the country, pollen can create a fine layer of greenish-yellow residue on furniture that needs to be wiped off.  Of course, the sun is also one of the most damaging elements and can create color fading and other damage to patio furniture and cushions with prolonged UV exposure.

AuthenTEAK carries Protective Covers Inc, which has been manufacturing high quality patio furniture covers for over 10 years and takes pride in bringing the very highest quality protective cover to the marketplace. PCI Inc. utilizes only rich, luxurious vinyl that has been UV treated for years of stability outdoors. Their Dura-Gard vinyl is unlike any in today’s market. These protective covers are 7mm thick, with a 4-ounce fleece polypropylene backing, which is first compressed into a flat sheet and then laminated onto the vinyl. This innovative process ensures the fleece won’t come off on the furniture like traditional, fuzzy backed vinyl, while adding an incredible amount of strength to the cover that fuzzy backed vinyl’s can’t match.

PCI protective outdoor furniture covers come standard with velcro ties to ensure a secure fit are are designed in a UV reflecting neutral grey (some covers available in black) with a 3-year prorated warranty.
