High-Pressure Patio Cleaning Hyde

Driveway and Patio Cleaning Hyde: If you are putting down a whole new patio in Hyde then you'll most likely not be concerned about patio cleaning, although you'll need to do this on a regular basis so as to keep your new patio in the best possible condition. If you're extending or adding to a pre-existing patio then it might be a good idea to have those old patio slabs cleaned up so that they blend in with the new slabs. Usually patio cleaning is done by chemical cleaning or power washing and most local Hyde patio cleaning contractors will quite possibly offer both of these services.

Patio Grouting Hyde: With old patios one of the key issues is with crumbling and cracked grouting or joints. If this occurs the patio area will look very messy and likely have weeds and grass sprouting up in between the slabs. You could use weedkiller to relieve the issue or pour boiling water on the weeds which is an outstanding technique to eliminate weeds without chemicals. Repairing the grout isn't easy and the hardest task is to rake out the existing grout which is probably going to be a cement and sand mortar. If your patio slabs are loose and moving repairing the joints is pointless since it will not have much effect, and you need to to have the entire area re-done. If your slabs are pretty secure and stable you can go ahead and hook out the old mortar by using a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or even better a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the whole patio a thorough clean-up once you're finished and re-grout the slabs using a polymeric or resin grout. Some are applied using the wet slurry process while others use a dry brush-in technique. Most professional patio layers in Hyde will do patio repointing, so get in touch with one near you to get a quotation.
