The wooden swing set is one of the most popular children's backyard toys. Wood is a common choice for children's swing structures because it is stable and easy to maintain, but it is susceptible to damage from the sun, rain, and snow.

If the wooden swing is corroded, the structure and performance will be damaged. As a result, the swing loses its stability and cannot guarantee the safety of children when playing.

Fortunately, these problems can be solved by the following repair steps and keep the swing device in good condition.

Remove existing paint and rotten wood

Use a belt sander or sandpaper with medium grit to remove any existing paint or dirt. Sand it until you see bare wood in good condition.

Sand with fine sandpaper

Change to fine sandpaper to smooth out any particles and burrs on the wood. Polish it smoothly and evenly until the surface of the wood feels smooth to the touch.

Clean wood

Use a hose to remove dust or sawdust that is still attached to the surface of the swing after sanding. Another option is to scrub with a soft brush dipped in soap and water. Avoid using a wire brush, as it will damage the wood, leaving small marks and gouging holes. After thoroughly cleaning the wood, let it dry for at least 24 hours. This is to ensure that the sealant and paint can firmly adhere to the wood.

Apply a layer of sealant

Use a fine-bristle brush to apply a layer of sealant to the wood. Let the brush move with the wood grain for best results. Do not apply too thick, as this may cause unevenness, and this will not add extra protection. When finished, let it dry for four to six hours. The sealant can make the wood have a good waterproof effect and prevent the swing from being molded and corroded. Some sealants can also protect the wood from UV damage, thus making the toy set last longer. You usually need to reapply the sealant every one to three years, depending on the environment.
