Here on the Maltese islands, summer is in full swing. With the long days of winter forgotten, it is time to spruce up, clean out, rearrange, and refresh. Having your apartment, penthouse or townhouse in tip-top shape for summer will not only look good, it will also boost your mood and senses to tackle the hot days ahead. Here are our tips for making your home summer ready:
Pack away all the winter woollies
Clean airco filters
pressure cleaner as this may damage it.
Be BBQ party ready
Since we never use them in the winter, last summer’s grease and fat may have been forgotten on your gas BBQ and grill. Use a wire brush, dish-washing liquid soap and even old newspapers to wipe off the dirt on the grill after brushing it vigorously with the soap solution. When it’s clean and dry, fire it up and let it get nice and hot to kill off any microbes that you may have missed. Once done, you’re all set to invite your friends and family over to host a much-needed BBQ party!
Check smoke and fire detectors
Clean window and door screens
Window and door insect screens can collect a lot of dust here in Malta over the months. Get them washed down with a hose and sprayer and for a thorough clean, mix some vinegar in a bucket of water and scrub the screens with a brush. Afterwards rinse with water and let it air-dry. They will look as good as new.
