Folding chairs are available in many designs and types. They come in variety of colors and fabrics and are a great economical choice. You can choose the type of chair from low maintenance plastic folding chairs, to the metal chairs, to the mesh chairs and the comfortable padded folding chairs. When it comes to backyard barbeques, the plastic folding chairs have always been a favorite. After every party or use, you can simply fold them and keep them away very conveniently.

Now keeping them away or storing the folding chairs requires some smart choices. To protect them from external elements like the sun, rain or excessive heat, a garage is the ideal place for storing them. In the garage, you can stack the chairs on a platform specially made for storing heavy items. You can stack up to eight chairs on top of each other and then raise the platform and leave your garage floor open for use. A chair dolly is another smart yet convenient way of stacking folding chairs.

Once you have stacked up the chairs, you must always remember to cover them with a dust cloth. Avoid keeping plastic or metal chairs near the furnace or boilers or other such heating sources. These areas have excessive heat build-up that may damage the seat. Storage of wooden and metal chairs requires further care. You must keep them away from moisture. Moisture can seep in the wood and can cause the frame to warp or have mold growth in the case of wooden chairs. Moisture and metal chairs will result in rusted frames. In the case of upholstered chairs keep them well covered as dust might get settled in the fabric. This will require a huge cleaning job when you will take them out the next time.

It is quite easy to clean folding chairs once you want to use them again after you have stored them well. For the plastic chairs, use cold water, soap and a brush. You must never use any sort of chemical cleaners for a plastic chair. To clean metal folding chairs, you can use a fine-grade sandpaper to scrub off and remove rust spots and scratches. For a finishing touch, paint them with rust-preventive spray paint. For the wooden folding chairs, you can polish them with recommended wood cleaner and polish.

You can use your old folding chairs with a new twist and look all the time. Every occasion can be marked differently with a different special touch to folding chairs. From adding decorative covers that match your event or the décor for the occasion to using bows and ribbons to do up the chair; the options are many. For wedding or theme parties, chair covers are a great idea. You can tie the fabrics to the back of the chairs to give them a festive look or can even glue them to the chairs. Properly store all types of folding chairs including metal folding chairs and always clean them in the right manner and they will be good as new for every use.
