Take a Walk Around It
During the winter, your deck was subject to a variety of harsh conditions. Rain, snow, and ice can cause many issues, so it’s important to walk around your deck to check for any damage. Check every inch of the frame, from the nails to the boards.
Remove Furniture From Storage
Once your deck is clean and safe, you can start dressing it for spring! Remove the furniture from storage, and take the time to clean it if necessary. If you stored your furniture correctly, you’ll need only to wipe it down with a damp cloth. Allow the seat cushions to air out before use.
