As the days are getting longer and temperatures are on the rise, the season many of us have been looking forward to is finally here. We all know that with summer comes vibrant atmospheres and weekends packed with fun outdoor activities. Simply imagine grilling patties in the backyard as the little ones romp around under the warm afternoon sun.
While you might be ready for the summer season, it’s important to make sure that your house is just as prepared. This means taking care of summer home maintenance tasks such as washing the patio, revamping the garden, and cleaning the grill. Meanwhile, in the indoor living spaces, chunky blankets make way for lighter ones whereas heaters pass the mantle onto air conditioners. Summer is upon us, and taking these measures into consideration will allow you to make the most of it.
Deep Clean the Grill
There’s nothing like a good scrub-down to get your grill clean and ready for summer barbeque parties. Before you begin the cleaning process, a helpful step involves setting the grill to high heat and letting it run for about 10 minutes. This loosens any gunk that’s been building up inside the cook box, making it easier to scrape it all off. Next, unplug the grill and allow it to cool completely so that you can detach the grates, the burners, and the dip tray. Thoroughly wash the components and let them dry before reassembling the grill.
