Get Your Patio Ready for BBQ Season

With warmer temps on the way, you are likely looking forward to a summer season full of cookouts, pool parties and get-togethers with friends and family. Before you send out the invites, though, take a look at the state of your patio. Is it grimy, streaked with black or green, stained or just plain dirty?

Prep your patio for BBQ by first hiring pressure washers in Dripping Springs who are experts in patio cleaning. They will know the perfect amount of pressure, heat and application to do the job safely and effectively, ensuring your patio is restored to its former glory. Your guests will be impressed and you can entertain with confidence and pride. Here are some tips to get your backyard ready for your next BBQ.

Pressure Wash Your Patio

The best and most effective way to prep your patio for backyard BBQs is to hire a pro for patio cleaning. Whether your patio is comprised of pavers, bricks or concrete, this process is gentle enough to ensure the material isn’t damaged but tough enough to remove deep-set grime, dirt, debris, mold, mildew, and stains that have accumulated over the winter and spring. This process not only leaves your patio looking brand new, it gets rid of moss and other substances that can be slippery and pose a hazard to visiting guests.

Landscape Your Backyard

Now it’s time to beautify the surrounding landscape. Pull weeds, plant some flowers, add some fresh mulch, mow the lawn and trim the hedges. If you don’t have the time or patience to perform these tasks yourself, hire a landscaper. While you’re at it, hire a contractor or handyman to take care of other neglected areas of your property, such as gutter cleaning, chimney repair, shingle replacement, and paint touchups.

Scrub the Grill

Summer BBQ season is nothing without the grill! You can’t just whip off the cover and expect to start grilling up tasty burgers and chicken on the day of your party. First, you have to give it a deep clean, especially if you haven’t used it in a while. Scrub the inside and outside of the grill, using a wire brush to scrape built-up debris from the racks.

Clean All Patio Furniture

You need a safe, clean space for your guests to congregate, sit and eat while at your party. If your patio furniture has seen better days, take off all the cushions and hose them down. Then wipe down the main part of the furniture with a cloth, warm water and a bit of liquid soap. You can buy specialty cleaners depending on the type of furniture you have. Allow the furniture and cushions to dry fully in the sun before replacing.  

Clean and Paint Your Deck and Fence

Pressure washing can make your deck and fence look like new again. Ask your patio cleaners to pressure wash these areas while they are there. Again, they can apply just the right amount of pressure to result in a sparkling clean, like-new, damage-free structure.

Now that your patio is prepped and ready, it’s time to bring on the party!
