How to Clean Outdoor Furniture

Patio FurnitureMost people leave their outdoor furniture exposed to the elements all year. This means that when summer rolls around, there is a buildup of dirt, moss and mildew which is not only unattractive, but a deterrent to those looking for a place to sit when outside. Paper towels and spray cleaner is not strong enough to clean your patio furniture when it starts to look dirty and grimy.

Cleaning Wrought-Iron and Plastic Furniture

To clean wrought-iron and plastic furniture, simple dish detergent should be enough. Mix dish detergent with water in a large bucket. Then, wet a microfiber cloth with the soapy liquid to wash the furniture. Start with the larger pieces first and then the smaller pieces such as plastic chairs. Once cleaning is complete, rinse off the dirty water and soap from the furniture with a garden hose and let air dry.

How to Clean up After a Flood

How to Cleanup After a FloodA flood is a devastating disaster in itself, but if left untreated, can lead to even further damage. Standing water and wet floors can quickly become a breeding ground for bacteria and mold if not cleaned up effectively.

Flood water may also contain sewage from overflowed or burst pipes, making it even more critical that you take the proper steps in protecting yourself and your family during the cleanup process.

Flood Cleanup – Before You Start:

  • Keep children and pets out of the area until flood cleanup is complete and you’ve determined it’s safe for them to enter the affected area.
  • Always wear rubber or other non-porous boots, gloves, and eye protection when working in the area.

Walk through the affected area to identify which items are salvageable and which are not.

  • While difficult to part with personal belongings, if they can’t be washed and disinfected you will need to remove and destroy them.
  • Common items that can’t be disinfected include mattresses, pillows, carpeting, rugs, books, cosmetics, baby toys, and upholstered furniture.
  • Drywall and insulation also can’t be disinfected after they come in contact with sewage or flood waters and should be removed and destroyed.
