Patio Jet Washing Worksop

Driveway and Patio Cleaning Worksop: If you're putting in an entire new patio in Worksop then you will likely not be immediately too worried about patio cleaning, though you'll need to be doing this on a fairly regular basis in order to keep your new patio in tip top shape. If you are adding to or extending a pre-existing patio area then you might want to have the old patio slabs cleaned so that they blend in with the new slabs. Generally patio cleaning is achieved by high-pressure water jetting or chemical cleaning and most local Worksop patio cleaning contractors will likely offer both of those services. Professionals use very high pressure equipment which is superior to the type of jet washer that you might have in your garage or shed.

Patio Re-Grouting Worksop

Patio Grouting Worksop: With old patios one of the main issues is with cracked and crumbling joints or grouting. When this happens your patio area will look a mess and doubtless have weeds and grass establishing themselves between the slabs. You could use weedkiller to relieve the issue or dowse the weeds with boiling water which is an excellent non-chemical solution to destroy weeds. Replacing the grout can be a tricky job and the toughest thing is to rake out the existing grout which is probably going to be a sand and cement mortar. If the patio slabs are loose and rocking it is pointless replacing the joints because it will not make much difference, and you actually need to have the whole area re-slabbed. If the slabs are pretty secure you can go ahead and rake out the old mortar by utilizing a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or better still a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the whole patio a really good clean-up when you're finished and re-grout the slabs using a polymeric or resin grout. Some use a dry brush-in system and others are applied using the wet slurry process. (Tags: Patio Grouting Worksop, Patio Re-Grouting Worksop)
