Patio Cleaning Chesterfield

Driveway and Patio Cleaning Chesterfield: If you're putting in a complete new patio in Chesterfield then you'll most likely not currently be thinking about patio cleaning, although you'll need to be doing this regularly so as to keep your new patio looking in tip top condition.

If your patio slabs are rocking and loose re-doing the joints is pointless as it is unlikely to solve the problem, and you really need to get the entire patio re-done. If your slabs are pretty stable and firm you can go ahead and hook out the damaged mortar with a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or even better a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the entire patio a really good cleanup once you're finished and re-joint the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some of these are applied using the wet slurry approach while others use a dry brush-in system. (Tags: Patio Grouting Chesterfield, Patio Re-Grouting Chesterfield)
