Before the summer season officially gets underway, you’ll want to inspect your backyard. This is a way to help prevent accidents from occurring and making sure everyone who’s having fun out there can stay safe. Here are some the things you should be inspecting:
Patio and Deck
A wooden deck should be properly sealed to prevent water damage. However, even with a seal there’s always a chance that water can seep in especially after several years. It’s often recommended that you reseal a wooden deck every three years. If you’re due for resealing, then it’s best to start this process early in the summer. You also want to inspect all the railings and supports under the deck for any potential damage.
As for your patio, you should make any repairs in the cracks or tiles before water seeps in and causes even more damage. A concrete patio can also be waterproof just as with a wooden deck.
Your lawn needs to be inspected almost every day especially if you have kids playing out there. A simple walk around to make sure nothing has appeared overnight that could cause a problem is easy to accomplish that. You definitely want to walk the lawn to pick up any debris before you mow the grass.
Even though Southern California weather is warm all year long, grilling kicks up in the summer. Before you start grilling it might be a good idea to inspect your set up. Give your grill a thorough cleaning both with the grate and the broiler. This will keep your grill from smoking up. You might also want to swap out the propane tank for fresh one.
Much like your wooden deck, your backyard swing sets also are exposed to the elements. Over time, those swing sets can start to rust or wear down. You want to make sure there are no exposed bolts, screws or nails that could cause injury. The swing set chains themselves should also be rust free.
If it looks as though the swing set might be beyond repair or your kids have outgrown it, then you would be better off removing it all together. One call to Junk King Chico can get that done.
