How to Prevent Wrought Iron Furniture from Staining Patios and Decks
The rust from wrought iron patio furniture feet can stain wood decks and concrete patios. But there are ways to prevent staining.
One way you can protect your floors is by spraying the bottom of your patio furniture with paint. You lay a chair or table on its side and spray a clear coat vinyl spray or clear coat epoxy paint on the furniture feet. Once the paint is dry, lay the furniture upright, and you should have protection from the iron leaking rust onto the floor.
You can also try floor protectors.
Chair and table glides are rubber floor protectors that prevent rust on decks and patios and can also prevent wobbling from unbalanced furniture legs. You place the furniture guides at the bottom of chair or table feet with screws or adhesive.
Another method you can try is to place plastic floor protectors called Patio Table Tips under the feet of wrought iron furniture. You would simply lift up a chair or table leg, place the plastic cup underneath, and then set the furniture back down on top of the cup.
Perfect Patios and Decks
You probably use floor savers under your potted plants, and you can also use floor savers under your furniture. When you move your patio furniture and plants, you’ll still have a perfect patio or wood deck underneath.
