5 Tips To Keep Your Deck Dirt Free
With two of the three big summer holidays already under your belt, your deck or patio has probably already seen a lot of entertaining. But enjoying your backyard shouldn’t be limited to just Memorial Day, July 4th, and Labor Day. Keeping your outdoor area clean and
ready for everything from unexpected guests to a quiet al fresco dinner for two is easier than you think. Here are a few simple tips to follow all summer long.
1. Close Your Umbrella.
When it’s not in use, close it. When you leave it open dirt has a place to settle and droppings from trees (and birds) are more likely to stain it. If you have a cover for it, use it. The extra effort and time you put into closing and covering the umbrella now will prevent a cleaning headache at the end of the season.
