Shrink Wrapping NJ: Preparing your outdoor furniture for shrink wrapping by professionals is easy. You could buy the shrink wrap rolls from a moving supply, office supply or big box store, but it’s infinitely easier to leave this difficult and precise process up to the pros. Shrink wrap typically comes in rolls or sheets that cover your outdoor furniture and then are heated to adhere to the item in question.
This keeps them protected in the winter months where they sit so you don’t have to move them to a storage area. Outdoor furniture can be shrink wrapped separately or as a bundle. Here are some tips on prepping your stuff.
Clear the Area
Choose a spot on your patio or in your yard – somewhere you have enough space. Make sure you give yourself at least 10 to 15 feet. Remove outdoor rugs, flower pots, garden supplies or other obstacles that could get in the way.
If wrapping your furniture individually, position the piece in the way you would normally use it. This is the best way to wrap your furniture if you’re moving. If you’re just storing it for the winter, you can bundle them all together because then weight won’t matter.
If you’re wrapping them all in a bundle, you’ll want to stack your furniture together. When wrapping a table and chairs, place a blanket on the table and stack the chairs, upside down, on top of the table. If wrapping chairs and no table, stack them one on top of the other. For patio umbrellas, leave it in the table and lower it as far as possible. Wrap it with bungee cords or rubber bands so it doesn’t open.
If you have small items you want to include in the bundle, place them underneath the table or chairs. Tie the furniture together once done stacking with zip ties or bungee cords. Connect all chairs by tying the armrests together and furniture legs together.
Now you’re ready for shrink wrapping. You can either purchase shrink wrap at the moving store, construction supply store or big box store, or you can purchase heated shrink wrap, which is not recommended as a DIY project because it involves high heat and the potential for damage if not done right.
