Do you Clean your Paths and Patio regularly?

POSTED BY Terry Carney ON May 21, 2021


Your patio and path areas are central features in your garden, which is why it’s so important to clean them regularly. Simple maintenance like brushing and washing with some hot soapy water can help a lot, but you should also consider regular professional cleaning.

Unfortunately, a lot of people neglect their patio and path areas because they don’t understand just how important it is to keep them clean. These are some of the most important reasons why patios and paths need to be cleaned regularly.

Here’s an example of work undertaken by Token Cleaning Services.

Make Them Look Amazing

The patio and path make up a large part of your garden and, over time, they can get covered with stains and moss. They end up looking incredibly dull and grimy, ruining the great aesthetic in your garden. Regular stone cleaning can remove all of that dirt and make your patio and pathways look as good as new. People often make the mistake of replacing their patio because they think that it is beyond saving, but this is a waste of money because regular cleaning gives you the same effect.

Improve Safety

This is something that people don’t consider when it comes to cleaning paths and patios. If there is a thick layer of moss and algae on the surface of the stone, this can be very slippery, especially in wet weather. Over time, this becomes a serious injury hazard around your home, so it needs to be tackled right away. Steam cleaning can remove all of the moss and algae, improving the grip on the patio and paths and making it safer for everybody.

Prevent Damage

When weeds grow on the surface of your path and patio and moss and algae grow in small gaps and cracks, this can lead to damage to the stone itself. If you neglect your patio and pathways and fail to clean them, this damage will continue getting worse until you reach a point where the stones need to be replaced. Steam cleaning will kill off any moss and algae that can erode the surface of the stones and cause long term damage. Not only does this make your patio and path look much nicer, it also increases its longevity and saves you money because you don’t need to replace it as often.

Increase Property Value

The value of your home is affected by many factors, including the aesthetics. If your home is well presented and looks as though it has been well maintained, the value will increase. But if your patio and pathways are all covered with moss and algae, this could damage the value of the property, so it is important to clean them on a regular basis, especially if you plan to sell the property.
