We spend much of our time making sure the inside of our home is clean. But how much attention do we spend tending to the outside? Your patio and screened-in areas need Spring Cleaning just as much as the rest of your home. It doesn’t have to be a massive chore if you do it right.
The best way to give your patio a thorough clean is to move the furniture, potted plants, BBQ grill, and other outside items. Grab your broom and sweep the entire area, then spray it down with the hose. If the area is filthy, scrub it with a push broom and warm soapy water, but be careful not to remove any paint from the concrete or pavers. After that, clean outdoor furniture and the cushions with mild soap and water and let everything dry thoroughly before putting them back together.
