Patio Cleaning Corsham

Patio Cleaning Corsham: You will probably not be immediately concerned with patio cleaning if you're only in the process of installing a new patio, however, as time passes, if you intend to keep your patio in good shape, you'll need to be cleaning it every twelve months.

In general high-pressure water jetting or chemical cleaning is the most efficient technique for cleaning patio slabs and you will find that most patio cleaning contractors in Corsham will offer both services, for getting your patio cleaned. Cleaning experts in Corsham will use cutting edge high-pressure equipment for doing this, and this is much better than any shop bought jet washer that you or I would use for our outside cleaning projects.

Patio Grouting Corsham: Grout and joints which are cracked or eroding is the chief issue that you will encounter with older, pre-existing patios. Whenever you are confronted by this situation, you will almost certainly have grass and weeds sprouting up between your slabs and the entire paved area will look awful. You could constantly use weedkiller to relieve the issue or pour boiling water on the weeds which is an effective non-chemical solution to eliminate weeds. Repairing the grout can be a big job and the hardest thing is to remove the existing grout which is probably going to be a sand and cement mix. If your patio slabs are loose and unstable it is pointless re-doing the joints because it won't have much effect, and you actually need to get the entire patio re-slabbed. Cleaning out the old mortar with a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or better still an angle grinder fitted with a diamond tipped blade, is going to be the next stage if your slabs are firm and stable. You'll be able to undertake the re-grouting with a resin or polymeric grout, as soon as the joints have been given a thorough clean. Some of these use a dry brush-in system and others are applied using the wet slurry process. (Tags: Grouting Patios Corsham, Patio Grouting Corsham, Patio Re-Grouting Corsham)
