It’s important the professional you seek is a trained cleaning contractor. Steam cleaning or low-pressure cleaning is an instant and effective method for cleaning a patio. This method removes bacterial build up, and provides the patio with a non-slippery and safe surface to walk on when wet. All patio surfaces can then have a sealant applied to further protect the patio after low-pressure cleaning.
CHEMICALS KNOWN AS SOFT WASHING
Chemicals have been developed to help clean patios after removing weeds without the need of pressure. Moss killers, fungicide and anti-moss treatments can be applied to the patio via a brush in method to any bacteria on the surface also known as lichens (black spots). However, this shouldn’t be done until after the paving’s crevices have been removed of weeds and moss growth.
When using moss-killing chemicals, remember to cover up any nearby plants and grass – the chemicals are designed to kill living organisms, not just specifically moss and algae. Additionally, ensure that any run-off from the chemical does not go into any drinking water sources or water butts.
