Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Outdoor Space
Posted on: Mar 16, 2023
Spring is the perfect time to prepare your outdoor living space for the warmer months ahead. Whether you have a large backyard or a small balcony, there are several tips and tricks you can use to get your space ready for spring.
Clean Your Zip-UP® Underdeck Panels - If you have a Zip-UP® Underdeck system installed, it's essential to give it a good cleaning for spring. Use a mild detergent and warm water to clean your panels thoroughly. You can use a soft brush or sponge to scrub away any dirt or grime that may have accumulated during the winter. This will ensure that your underdeck space is clean and ready to be enjoyed during the warmer months.
Clear Your Gutters - Spring brings with it plenty of rain showers, and the last thing you want is for your gutters to be clogged with debris. Before the rainy season begins, make sure you clear your gutters of any leaves, twigs, and other debris that may have accumulated during the winter. Clogged gutters installed with your Zip-UP® Underdeck system can lead to water damage and other costly repairs, so taking care of this task early on can save you time and money in the long run.
Check Your Outdoor Furniture - Even though Zip-UP® Underdeck helps protect and extend the life of your outdoor furniture, winter weather can certainly take a toll. It's essential to inspect it for any damage or wear and tear. Check for cracks, rust, and other signs of damage that may have occurred during the colder months. If you notice any issues, consider repairing or replacing your furniture before the start of the season.
Check Your Lighting - With longer days and warmer evenings, you'll want to make sure your outdoor lighting is working correctly. Check your light fixtures and replace any bulbs that may have burned out during the winter months. Want to add lighting to your Zip-UP® Underdeck? Zip-UP® Underdeck panels are removable and reusable for just that reason. Pull a panel down, install your electrical fixtures, and re-install your panel. Adding new lighting fixtures helps create a more inviting atmosphere to be enjoyed all year!
Add Some Color - You’ve created a beautiful space! Spring is a great time to add some color to your outdoor living area. Consider planting some flowers or adding brightly colored planters or furniture accessories. This can help to brighten up your area and create a welcoming atmosphere for you and your guests.
Preparing your outdoor living space for spring can be a fun and exciting task. By following these simple tips and tricks, you can ensure that your space is ready to be enjoyed during the warmer months ahead.
