Local meat markets are getting sort of crazy lately. Hawaiian style bratwurst? Nevertheless, the year’s biggest barbeque skill show-off opportunity is quickly approaching. But before the showcase showdown of grill glory on July 4th, it’s necessary to get the aesthetics just right beforehand. A clean deck, shows that the grillmaster is also master of their domain. Plus, although some people prefer burn marks and/or extra grease on their food, nobody wants to look at it caked to an otherwise beautiful deck. Here’s a short checklist for surefire success.
Sure, it’s easy (and sometimes way more appealing) to simply do a sweep of the visible areas. However, the livelihood of the deck is even more important than the actual look of things. Plus, it’d be a shame if someone knocked over a flower pot to reveal a bunch of mildew during a gathering. Consider taking the extra time to clear off all the furniture from the deck and assess areas where there might be buildup. Spoiler alert: if it’s been awhile since the grill has been moved, know that disappointment may ensue.
When the Time is Right…
Okay, so maybe there are a couple of excuses to help get out of this deck maintenance chore. If the sun is too hot, the cleaning solution could potentially burn into the deck, leaving costly eyesores. It’s best to do try and target a cleaning in early mornings, evenings or on cloudy days to avoid this situation. A small amount of product with some hot water, followed by a mop and rinse usually does the trick for most regular cleanings. If homeowners discover stubborn black marks or mold underneath furniture, it’s important to consult a professional for advice before experimenting with harsher chemicals.
How long has it been since the deck has had some TLC? It’s hard for many people to get excited about the small investment of retreatment, but it will ultimately upgrade the appearance of the wood and add years to the life of the wood.
