Now that you’ve successfully cleaned the interior of your home, how does the outside look? If your backyard needs a little TLC, there’s still time before summer officially (and unofficially) begins!

Patio and Deck
Take a moment to sweep and power spray the remaining grime from your deck.

Don’t forget to wipe down your patio furniture, clean your patio cushions, and cover your furniture after each use. But, if there’s no saving your outdoor furniture and you think it’s simply time for an upgrade, read our blog: Tips For Buying Outdoor Furniture.

If you left your patio cushions with Triple S for cleaning and storing, call us and we’ll deliver them straight to your door!

Outdoor Kitchen
Give your grill a good cleaning (utensils and all!). And while you’re at it, make sure you have extra plates, cups, and other utensils for you and your guests.

Outdoor Lighting
Go around your property and check to make sure all your lights are working properly. Add a little glow to your patio so you can enjoy this space after dark — it’ll also come in handy when you want to grill at night.

Another great way to spruce up your outdoor space is by adding an outdoor rug! They can withstand the high-foot traffic that outdoor parties bring and plus, they make your space more welcoming!

Don’t worry about getting any spills or stains on your outdoor carpet either (it’s bound to happen at least once over the summer). We have all the tips you need, here: Spot Removal Tips.
