How To Get Your Porch or Patio Ready for Summer

The porch or patio area usually gets neglected over the winter season so it's a good idea to spruce things up and get it ready for summer.

Porch Clean Up Step by Step:
  1. Sweep porch floors and in between floorboards thoroughly.
  2. Rinse walls, ceiling and floors with a hose, then using a bristle brush and warm soapy water scrub stains, and rinse again.
  3. Clean light fixtures  by removing and vacuuming debris, then use a window cleaner for a spotless shine.
  4. Re-stain wood if needed.
  5. Wipe metal umbrella stand with plain soap and water, then scrub, vacuum and wipe outdoor fabric umbrella. (for mold and mildew use diluted bleach).
Tip: Spot test first before using any cleaner just to make sure it won't damage your furniture.  Oxiclean is a great alternative to bleach.  For wicker furniture clean with a soft, dry toothbrush.

Now your porch or patio is ready for summer!
