Everyone loves relaxing outside during good weather, whether it’s with friends and family or with tea and a good book. Your three-porch is the perfect place for relaxation, but proper maintenance is needed to keep it in good condition. However, it’s not easy keeping your porch maintained through every season, especially during winter and spring.
We’ve got some tips and information on how to keep your three-season porch clean and ready to use through the off-seasons.
Preparing Your Three-Season Porch for Warm Weather
It’s best to deep clean your porch before and after spring, summer, and winter. Dirt and debris that accumulate from wind and storms can damage your porch if left to rot. Cleaning your porch is hard work, but it pays off, allowing your porch to look like new for years to come.
Cleaning Your Three-Season Porch
First, move all your furniture, rugs, and any other porch decorations into your lawn. After cleaning everything out, dust and wipe down your light fixtures, fans, and window sills. Once that’s done, sweep all the dust off the floor of your porch.
Next, use a hose and lightly spray down the screens and floorboards of your three-season porch to get rid of grime and leftover dirt. For good measure, wipe everything down after spraying.
Then, clean the furniture, rugs, and décor you moved off the porch. Washing or spraying down your cushions and rugs will help prevent dust and pollen from accumulating in your three-season porch. You can also use a vacuum before spraying everything down, as this can help stop contamination. Once everything is clean, move it back to the porch. Following these steps before and after each season will help keep your porch in good condition. As you’re cleaning your three-season porch this year, you might notice it needs some updating.
