Moss, algae, lichen and other fungi will often develop when a patio is exposed to moisture, staining and masking the colour of the paving. Likewise, in the laying process, cement mortar can often spill and dry on the paving surface. The good news, however, is that such dirt can be successfully removed from most pavers via a number of methods.
Has your wood deck or wood fence become gray, dingy and weathered over the years? Have you thought that replacing the wood was the only answer? Do you avoid outdoor entertaining because you are embarrassed by how bad it looks? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, Window Genie has the solution that can save you time, money and a lot of aggravation.
When spring is just around the corner you’re likely to be thinking about showing your garden a little TLC. No doubt, tending to the plants and pruning the shrubs will be on the job list but what about a new patio just in time to enjoy the longer, warmer days.
The most straightforward and certainly the safest way to clean your paving is to scrub with warm soapy water. You can use washing up liquid but please check the product for any warnings about use on certain materials such as limestone.
Wash off the area with clean water to ensure no soapy residue is left behind.
Patio cleaners can be acidic or alkaline. We advise extreme caution with acidic cleaners in particular as they are not always suitable and can even cause irreversible damage when applied to certain types of paving. There are certain natural stone slabs that you should never use acidic cleaners on and limestone is one of those.
