If you have stone materials in your patio, pathway, driveway or garden, you know for a fact that they require maintenance or cleaning because without proper maintenance, the natural beauty and rustic appeal of stones can eventually weaken. Because of this, you should hire experts from PD Drives and Patios Ltd or your preferred service providers. Another option is to do the cleaning yourself. If your patio is starting to show age or you just want to maintain its presentable appearance, here are some things that you can do.
Clear the area by washing
The most ideal day for cleaning the patio or your surrounding is on a clear day with less wind in the air. Remove obstructions in the area such as flower pots, chair sets, vases, tables and other movable items. Consider removing weeds, clumps of dirt and other debris that are considered as eye sores. You can manually remove these clumps or use a garden hose or pressure washer to clean the area with water.
Clean the patio
After washing the area, allow it to dry then clean the patio with stone cleaner to effectively remove stains or signs of discoloration, accumulated algae or moss. Pressure washer can only remove thick dust and dirt but they cannot effectively remove tire marks, grease, oil or food stains. You can find biodegradable cleaners or stain removers that you can apply on stubborn stains to restore your patio. However, for a more professional result and if you do not have the time to do all the works, it would be best to leave it to the experts such as the PD Drives and Patios Ltd who have the tools and training to do the job.
Apply sealing on the exterior
When you have thoroughly cleaned the surface of your patio, driveway or other exteriors, apply sealing on the cracks to repair damages. However, if the damages are difficult to do and you do not have the right tools and expertise for it, call PD Drives and Patios Ltd to do the job for you. They have the experience, the expertise and the right equipment to do the job successfully for you.
