Detailed Cleaning

Prior to packing a single throw pillow, perform some deep cleaning of the patio and garden furniture and grill. If they aren’t thoroughly clean for the move, you might end up with grime and dirt on a variety of other items that ride close to them inside the moving van. Spray all surfaces of the outdoor furniture down with cleaner, wipe clean and rinse with water. Make positive and get all the cracks and crevices on the furniture. With regard to the grill, get rid of the soot and also ashes from inside and clean up the grease or ash catcher.
