Start with a Clean Deck
First and foremost, take a walk out on your deck and ask yourself if there is anything you can do to improve the way it looks or how useful it is. Sweep it off first, or use a leaf blower, to get rid of pine needles, twigs, leaves, and other debris that’s accumulated over the winter. Make sure you don’t have any loose railings, boards, nails, or crews. If you see rough spots of your deck, sand them. If the deck is dirty, use a pressure washer to get it sparkling clean again.
Clean Off Everything That Goes on Your Patio
Now that your deck is cleaned off, you want to make sure that you have an area to gather. Start by bringing out the patio table frame, if it is separate from the tabletop. Wipe down the rim of said table and the legs as well. Then put the table where you want it. Bring out the table top and set it where it goes. Use glass cleaner to clean it off and then cover it with a thick outdoor tablecloth to keep it protected.
If the table comes with an umbrella, set it where it goes and uncrank it. Then clean off any debris or dirt. Wipe down all the chairs, paying special attention to the arm rests and legs. You can clean mildly dirty chairs with a mild soap and water, but if they are very dirt then you may want to use your pressure washer. Don’t forget to clean off any removable cushions, but make sure that they are still comfortable. If they are not, then it may be better to simply replace them.
Get Your Grill Ready for the Summer
Let’s face it: Spring cleaning is really about getting ready for the summer and nothing says “ready for the summer” like a grill that’s ready to go. If you have a gas grill, disconnect the gas tank and wipe it down. Refill it or purchase a backup so that you’ll always have plenty of fuel on hand.
Open up the grill and clean the grates. If there is caked on dirt on them, soak the grill in hot soap water and then scrub them with steel wool. If there is rust on the grates, simply measure them and buy new ones to replace them. Clean out the drip pan, wipe down the outside of the grill, and it will be ready for the first cookout of the season.
