Patio Pressure Cleaning Urmston

Driveway and Patio Cleaning Urmston: If you are laying a whole new patio in Urmston then you'll likely not be too concerned about patio cleaning, although you'll need to do this on a fairly regular basis in order to keep your new patio looking in tip top condition. If you are adding onto or extending an existing patio area then it might be advisable to get those old patio slabs cleaned so that they match the newly laid slabs as closely as possible. Most often the cleaning of patios is achieved by chemical cleaning or power washing and most local Urmston patio cleaning companies will quite possibly offer both of those services.

Patio Grouting Urmston: With old, pre-existing patios one of the chief issues is with crumbling and cracked grouting or joints. If this is the case with yours then your patio can look awful and probably have weeds and grass sprouting up between the slabs. You could use weedkiller to alleviate this problem or saturate the weeds with boiling water which is the best way to eliminate weeds without chemicals. Repairing the grout isn't easy and the hardest job is to rake out the old grout which is most likely a cement and sand mix. If your paving slabs are loose and moving there is no point re-doing the joints since it will not solve the problem, and you need to to have the entire area re-done. If your slabs are reasonably stable and secure you can press on and hook out the damaged mortar by utilizing a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or even better a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the entire area a really good clean-up once you're finished and re-joint the slabs using a polymeric or resin grout. Some are applied using the wet slurry approach while others use a dry brush-in technique. (Tags: Patio Grouting Urmston, Patio Re-Grouting Urmston)
