Get Your Outdoor Space Back to 100%
Have you gotten behind on your spring cleaning? Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. To make the transition a breeze we’ve compiled an outdoor spring-cleaning checklist to get your outdoor spaces back into tip-top shape to enjoy during the wonderful spring weather!
Check the Deck
Start by sweeping or pressure washing away those cobwebs and other debris from porch ceilings, walls and floors. You’ll want to pay attention to the areas where you and your guests will be sitting when outside. So, wash all patio furniture with a cleaning solution specially formulated for specific outdoor furniture.
Cleaning Outdoor Patio Furniture Quick Tips
- Wood patio furniture handles the winter weather well, but it’s great to give it a quick cleaning! We recommend a mild, wood soap like Murphy’s Oil Soap mixed with warm water.
- If your metal furniture has a bit of oxidation mix a 1:1 solution of white vinegar and water, use it with a soft cloth to remove the imperfections.
- Cleaning plastic furniture is easy! Start by putting a wet sponge into baking soda, wiping it on the furniture in a circular motion. Any stubborn stains, add white distilled vinegar to a clean rag, wipe, and rinse.
Tend Your Garden
Your landscaping may have taken a hit during the winter months, be sure to clear away any dead weeds or leaves around the yard. Take a day to add fresh soil, trim trees and shrubs to encourage that spring growth! This is also the perfect time to take inventory and determine what you’d like your garden or landscaping to look like this year. If you come up with any big ideas to change up your space, AquaTerra can help with that!
