7 Ways to Get Your Deck and Patio Clean Before Summer
Maybe you consider your patio your outdoor living room, or perhaps your deck doubles so your outdoor office—if you're lucky enough to have outdoor space, you're probably eager to use it as soon as the weather warms up. To get ready for a summer spent outside, follow these steps to clean and prep your deck, porch, or patio. Begin by decluttering items you no longer need, then roll up your sleeves for the deep-cleaning and weeding. The entire process will take a few evenings after work or one weekend dedicated to the task, but once you've crossed these to-dos off your list, you'll be ready for many leisurely summer afternoons outdoors.
