  • DampRid is a moisture absorbing product that is beneficial when the seasons change and temperatures fluctuate. Check out our other moving supplies in our office.
  • Boats and kayaks retain a lot of moisture, even after sitting out to dry off. Leave this item uncovered, and supported off the ground to keep the boat moisture free.
  • Wood furniture that sits outside all summer collects pollen and dirt, so before storing patio furniture, wash it with soap and water.
  • Staining or painting your outdoor furniture will help it last next season. Use the correct method to wash the dirt off then apply a layer of paint.
