- Check The Deck: If you have a deck, you’re sure to spend some time on it this summer. Be sure it is ready for you and your guests. Check all the boards to make sure there are no loose boards or dangerous nails sticking out. It’s also a great time to see if it's time to be resealed. Pour some water on it, if it puddles you’re safe. If the water sinks into the wood it is time to call Spray ‘n Coat Painting and schedule an appointment to have it resealed.
- Clean The Screens: Screens collect a lot of dirt and grime and should be cleaned regularly, especially if you like to open your windows and let the fresh air in. There are several ways to clean them, but most experts suggest simply popping them out, and with a soft bristle brush, giving them a good old-fashioned scrubbing with a mild soap dish soap and water, then just rinse them off and air dry. Once they are dry, pop them back in.
- Clean The Grill: You can’t throw a BBQ with a dirty grill. And since you’re bound to be using it all summer long and summer is basically almost here, there is no time like the present to get that grill ready.
