Snowbird Season: Ways to Update Your Arizona Home


A snowbird is a person who migrates from the colder northern parts of North America to warmer southern locales, typically during the winter.

Arizona is an extremely popular destination for snowbirds. Northerners flee the freezing winters, to make their way to their homes in Tucson. Now is the time to assess the state of your furniture, drapery or decor- to ensure they match your current style, are in good condition, and are fully functional.  

Did you know the conditions in Arizona’s climate might deteriorate fabric more rapidly than let’s say any climate with any amount more of water? Sunshine is great in particular doses, however, at the intensity here in Arizona your cushions could be literally disappearing. Pack rat damage and discoloration are also some of the things to look out for.

Plus, care is easy- with home laundering (bleach solution acceptable).

UV-Resistant to Counter the Elements

Chemical reactions from UV rays cause degradation of fabrics over time.

Sunbrella fibers are saturated to the core with highly UV-stable pigments, making Sunbrella fabrics resistant to fading and the degrading effects of sunlight.
