Prepare Your Home for Your Next BBQ

With bar-b-que season upon us, this is a great time to ensure your home is prepared for your next gathering. From a safety check to making sure you have enough food for your guests, there are some easy ways to get ready, before your next BBQ. Once you're in your dream home at the Lake of the Ozarks, you may want to host your first gathering. Our team of real estate agents in Sunrise Beach, MO are here with some helpful tips on how to prepare your home for your next BBQ!

Clean the Grill

Since your guests' food will be prepared on the grill, it's important that it has been cleaned since its last use. Scrape any charred food off of your grill top, before cooking for your next BBQ. It is also nice to clean up the outside of your grill, since your guests will likely see it on the deck or patio.

Wash the Windows

With a number of windows and sliding doors that typically lead to a deck or porch, ensure your windows are spic and span before your next get together. While entry doors and sliding doors will usually get smudged up during your gathering, it's nice for them to start with a clean slate, allowing guests to see in and out of your home with ease.

Sweep the Deck

Since your guests will likely be outside, enjoying the beautiful summer weather at the Lake of the Ozarks, you want to ensure your outside space is clean. Sweeping the deck off gives a clean and safe place for your friends and family to gather this summer.

Inspect Guest Seating

Before you invite your guests to take a seat, ensure the seats you have provided are clean and dry. While outdoor cushions are ideal for comfort, they can also hold water. If there has been rain recently, ensure your seats are dry before allowing guests to sit down.

Clean up the Bathroom

Even though you imagine your party being outside, your guests will likely need to use the restroom at some point or another during your BBQ. Do a quick clean up of the bathroom nearest your deck, before your guests come over for your gathering.

Give your Kitchen a Once-Over

While the majority of your gathering will likely be on your deck or patio, it's still important that your kitchen is presentable. If a guest offers to help you bring your food outside or clean up after your group has finished eating, you don't want to give off the impression of a dirty kitchen.

Ensure Deck is Safe

Before inviting friends and family over this summer, make sure your deck is in a safe condition. Ensure all railings are secure to keep all of your guests safe, if they happen to lean against a deck rail. Over time, deck nails can start to pop up - take a hammer and nail them back into place to avoid a foot injury or tripping hazard.

Now that you know what you need to accomplish before hosting your next gathering, you can be fully prepared when your guests come over.
