The waterproof nature of wicker also means that if you spill something on it, the liquid will tend to just drip right through to the floor. With other woods, it may cause a stain, but not on wicker. Even though wicker furniture looks substantial, it’s easy to move it around. That’s a real bonus if you like to rearrange the patio furniture now and then to suit your entertainment style.
Of course, its durability is another great selling point. It is really strong. Properly maintained, wicker patio furniture will last a long time, especially if it’s kept on a covered patio or balcony or in a sunroom. That’s because it is naturally resistant to the elements, especially moisture and mold. In most cases, all you need to do is wipe your wicker patio furniture off with a cloth or dust it occasionally.
