A patio is one of the most joyful additions to your home. It can completely transform your garden into a summer delight where the best of times can be had. But like anything that sits outside, your patio is prone to becoming damaged, dirty or even vandalised. But don’t fear, as all is not lost. Your patio can be rescued.
Some of the best methods involved:
- Cleaning Services
- Regular Maintenance
- A Little Sprucing
Sometimes all that’s needed is a quick clean by a professional to revitalise your patio. You can also maintain your sitting area with some regular work that takes no time when kept up. Then all you need to do is spruce it up with some natural decoration like a planter and herbs.
Your patio might look terrible, but it might only need a clean by a professional. The right tools for the job are necessary, though, and luckily for you, we have everything you could ever need.
Wet and Dry Blasting
One of the simplest methods of stone cleaning is by blasting it. Wet blasting involves using an abrasive mix of damp and dry particles to get rid of stubborn dirt. Dry blasting works similarly for both stone and brick cleaning using a high-pressure jet of grit.
Pressure and Steam Cleaning
Water is a common element used for cleaning almost everything. We can clean your patio using water in two ways. We can use a high-pressure water jet to remove dirt and deposits or steam to remove more difficult artefacts like gum, oil and moss.
JOS and TORC
For a more delicate job, we can also use JOS and TORC. These two types of cleaning methods that operate at a much lower pressure. As a result, they are better suited to older buildings where damage might be a concern. They are also effective at graffiti removal.
Of course, following a good clean, you need to ensure that your patio keeps its new shine for many more years to come. Lousy weather, nature’s creeping hand and general wear and tear will affect your deck over time. But you can help keep it maintained with some regular chores that won’t break the bank or your back if you do them as much as needed.
First, you should regularly brush and remove debris from your patio. This should be done daily if possible. Debris can accumulate and get trodden into the recesses of stone and brick, making it look dirty. Although we are experts at power washing, a home power washer will help significantly for everyday soil. Finally, pay attention to weeds. Weeds will grow through pavers and brick. So kill and pick them as much as possible from around and inside your patio.
Add Some Stuff
Garden decoration is nothing new, but it is a growing trend. Millions of people all over the country love to spend time shopping around garden centres and DIY stores. And fortunately, you can get great deals on garden items that will transform your patio into a personal oasis.
You might like to garden a little, then again, you might not. But you do enjoy eating, right? Planters are very cheap and can hold multiple types of herbs. Herbs like Rosemary and Thyme require almost no effort to grow outside, and they can be used in various recipes. Additionally, they look amazing when fully grown and flowering, and promote pollination by bees.
