Deep Cleaning

Before packing a single cushion, perform some detailed cleaning of the patio and garden furniture as well as grill. When they aren’t thoroughly clean for the move, you may end up with dirt and grime on a variety of other things that ride next to them within the moving van. Spray all areas of the patio and garden furniture down utilizing cleaner, wipe clean and rinse off with water. Be positive and get all the crevices and cracks on the furniture. With regard to the grill, take out the soot as well as ashes from the inside and clean the grease or ash catcher.

Be certain any throw pillows and also cushions are completely dried before packing them within cartons. Label the cartons for quick recognition at your new residence.

Remove grates, trays and also smaller parts from the grill and thoroughly cover them in packing paper and put them in boxes. You’ll want to take out the propane tank from the grill.
