UV rays start damaging your skin and even your eyes in five to ten minutes. If you are less sensitive to sunlight, you may have five more minutes of resistance before UV rays harm your skin, too.

Don’t think that swimming in the pool will save you. UV rays can reach below the water's surface and get amplified by the water’s reflection. This makes them even stronger and more dangerous.

But you and your guests don’t have to suffer under the sun. You can create a safe zone in any outdoor space with a few patio umbrellas. You can relax there without risking your health.

Modern Patio Design has many patio umbrellas on sale. Let me show you the best ones from their collection.

Source Furniture was aiming to deliver a patio umbrella that embodied the roots of this furniture type. This is why the Source Furniture The Grand 13’ Center Pole Umbrella sports a wood grain frame.

However, this frame isn’t just for show. Wood grain has several qualities to it that increase its durability and general longevity. This is most apparent in its appearance, the wood grain gives this umbrella a timeless appeal.

Source Furniture The Grand 13' Cantilever Umbrella - Mirror Anodized Finish

The Source Furniture The Grand 13’ Cantilever Umbrella, has two special quirks to it that set it apart from other cantilever umbrellas. The first is the slight bend that appears near the top of its pole. This bend creates a more intimate type of shade, giving off an air of privacy.

The bend is also beneficial because it’s able to block sunlight that comes at an angle

This cantilever umbrella also has a mirror anodized finish. You can spot this type of finish from a distance, even if you don’t necessarily know what it is. This is because a mirror anodized finish gives off a high gloss shine.

  • Width: 156″

Here are some key tips for maintaining your patio umbrella:

  1. Cleaning: Start by cleaning the umbrella fabric regularly to prevent dirt and debris buildup. Use a soft brush or sponge, mild soap, and lukewarm water to gently scrub the fabric. Rinse thoroughly and allow it to air dry before closing the umbrella.
  2. Storage: When not in use, always close the umbrella unless it needs to be left open to secure a daybed. Consider using a protective cover to shield it from the elements and prevent dust, pollen, or bird droppings from accumulating.
  3. Frame Inspection: Periodically inspect the frame for loose screws, bolts, or any signs of wear and tear. Tighten any loose hardware to maintain stability.
  4. Fabric Maintenance: If your umbrella fabric becomes stained or mildewed, follow the manufacturer's cleaning instructions. Most fabrics are designed to resist fading and UV damage, but some maintenance may be necessary over time.

By following these maintenance guidelines, you can preserve the appearance and functionality of your patio umbrella.
