The attraction of dirt and debris is a natural occurrence that happens to every deck box over time. Because it stays in one place throughout the year (and even year round in some cases), everything Mother Nature throws up, out, and around will eventually end up against the walls of your beautiful deck box. By knowing how you can protect and clean this piece of furniture now, you will be ensuring the protection of your investment for years to come, without all the hassle of constantly refinishing.
If you have a plastic deck box, cleaning from time to time will be a much easier process - a natural attraction for those who live in places where you get all four seasons visiting. Because plastic is a solid, non-porous material, keeping it clean is a very easy process. Taking a mild cleaner (such as dish soap) and warm water to your plastic box will keep it clean throughout the year - apply when needed, and allow that natural shine to come back to your deck box. For the bigger projects, taking a harder cleaner will help get out the longer lasting stains. Always check what is in the cleaner before applying it to your plastic box; the wrong cleaner could eat away at the plastic, and eventually breaking down your box.
The fourth reason wooden deck boxes are a great investment is because they function as a great addition to the outdoor furniture world, but most will be beneficial indoors as well. Cedar and redwood deck boxes will not only match any theme inside the home but they will also reduce indoor clutter. They work great for holding dirty boots and wet shoes in a mudroom or breezeway.
To start, consider the elements that your deck box will be submitted to throughout the year. Will your deck box be forced to face the snow in one season and rain in the other, or are you living the Beach Boys' endless summer? Will the box have to tolerate the rain and wind in the winter, or will it be facing the endless attacks of bugs and dirt? Knowing what it will be exposed to will give you a better idea of what kind of deck box is right for you.
Storage boxes made of cedar are both resistant to harsh weather and insects. Other wooden deck boxes may need to be treated with sealant or varnish to keep it waterproof season after season.
