When it comes to spring cleaning, don’t forget your Memphis Wood Fire Grill and your outdoor cooking space!

The end result will be a grill that is sleek and beautiful on the outside and ready to deliver optimal flavor and performance on the inside.

Don’t Forget Your Outdoor Kitchen

Along with cleaning your Memphis Grill, now is an excellent time to consider your outdoor cooking space. De-griming concrete patio surfaces is a good place to start. Follow that up by pressure washing exterior steps and siding to remove the dirt, salt andmildew that can accumulate over time. Be careful of tiled surfaces, however, as pressure washing these can cause damage.

At this point, you may want to bring out your patio furniture and take steps to get it ready for use again. This might be as simple as hosing off the table and chairs, or more labor intensive like scrubbing cushions and making minor repairs. Don’t forget to clean your patio umbrella, as they may have become home to a spider or two during their time in storage.
