Camping Gear:

Lay all your gear out and take inventory.

Inspect! Look for any holes or rips in tents and sleeping bags.

Look for insect or rodent activity that have made your gear their new home.

Make a checklist of what needs replaced or is missing.

Give everything a nice cleaning, especially cooking supplies to avoid unwanted critters.

Do not keep any flammable materials in your unit, such as propane tanks and lighter fluid.

Clean and dry everything before storing, so mold and mildew do not grow.

Remove any batteries from equipment before putting back into storage.

 

 

Outdoor Furniture:

Uncover any patio furniture that was sitting out.

Give any outdoor cushions a good cleaning.

Soap and water will remove any dirt and grim that accumulated over the winter

Re-coat any wooden furniture with a waterproof sealant.

Uncover and clean your grill to get it ready for the first BBQ of the season.

Play equipment is normally too big to cover, so before the kids on it get rid of debris and bugs.

We know your belongings are important. Keep your outdoor gear ready for the next adventure with us!
