BBQ deep cleaning and maintenance checklist
One way to create your new outdoor alfresco area is to use cabinets, timber benchtops and frosted glass doors from the Kaboodle kitchen range.
Kaboodle kitchen products are moisture resistant so they can be used outdoors. It's important to install them in an undercover area to protect them from outside elements.
Excessive moisture refers to water leaks and spills. It's important to clean up any liquid spills as quickly as you can.
Kaboodle also recommends gluing and screwing all of your cabinets for better structural integrity, plus the glue acts as an extra barrier for moisture resistance.
There's no doubt that certain areas of Australia are prone to sudden weather changes, so it's also beneficial to apply a coat of glue to any exposed top and bottom edges.
Remember, any barbecue and gas bottle installation must be in accordance with the barbecue manufacturer's installation requirements and comply with Australian standards.

Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
