Is your home ready for summer entertainment? Don’t worry, there’s still some time. Not much obviously, but some. Give us a call and we’ll help clean, paint, and prepare your home for summertime barbecues that your guests will talk about for years to come.

Paint the Walls

Has it been more than three years since you painted the walls? A fresh coat of paint will make your home look updated more than anything else you can do.

Buy Summery Decor

Go to your local Dollar Tree or your favorite dollar store and buy some cheap decorations to spruce up your home. You don’t have to go all out on expensive glassware or brand name throws and pillows in order to give your home a fresh new look.

Prepare the Deck or Patio

Clean the deck or patio before inviting people over for summer fun in the backyard. Create separate areas for socializing and grilling so people can spread out and enjoy their time. Buy some patio furniture or update your old furniture for the new year. Decorate the house and outside as much as you see fit based on the type of gathering.

Prepare the Grill or Smoker

Make sure you have plenty of propane, charcoal, wood chips, or other fuel for the grill and smoker. Clean the grill so it’s ready to get cooking just before people begin to arrive.

Set Up Drink Stations and Snack Bars

Coolers are a great addition to any outdoor event so that your guests aren’t required to trek to and from the kitchen every time they need a drink or snack.

Be Vigilant, Be Safe, and Have Fun

Being a great barbecue host comes with responsibility. It’s your responsibility to ensure that everyone has a good time in a safe and fun atmosphere. Make sure your friends drink responsibly and handle all fireworks with the respect due them. Keep children and pets away from the grill, smoker, open flame, and other potentially dangerous things.
