Once the warmer weather decides to stay, more and more time is spent outdoors. And if you have a patio or deck, you know that the space becomes one of your favorite hang-out spots in the summer. Read about deck and patio prep for the weather months!
Clean your furniture. When you bring your patio furniture back out, it has been allowing dust and dirt to cover it. Fill a bucket with warm water and some soap for a quick and easy clean. A nice clean can make your furniture feel fresh and new.
In addition to cleaning your furniture, a spring patio or deck wash is likely needed. Sealing the deck may also be necessary depending on when it was done last. Consider staining it a different color if you are looking to change up the space more.
Did you know that the sun fades your furniture? This can be prevented by applying an outdoor furniture protector. This protector helps block UV rays meaning that less discoloration will occur. If you have wood furniture be sure to add a weather-resistant protector.
Need some added comfort? Purchasing outdoor cushions are great and will last if you care for them properly. If they don’t have ties to hold them securely, you can easily attach Velcro or a fabric fastener to the chair and cushions. There are also many options for outdoor decorations that can add relaxation and bliss to your outdoor living space. Whether you want to add neutral tones or brighten it up with some color, your local garden store will have you covered.
During this spring cleaning, take a look at your house and see if other areas need attention like a Bloomington roofing inspection, siding inspection, or windows.
