It’s the time of year to enjoy your garden again, so if you’re looking to make the most of it, by getting in a spot of patio cleaning in Cambridge, then we have some top tips.
It took until June this year, but the sun is finally poking its head out, which means it’s well and truly time to get outside for some BBQs and fun.
If all that rain has caused carnage and you’re worrying that the state your patio is in will put you off enjoying the great outdoors, then there are a few things you can do yourself to get it up to scratch.
In addition to patios getting dirty and drab over the year, when the weather is wet and miserable, mould, mildew and moss positively thrive in the joints and cracks in your patio, which leaves it looking not great.
Using a cheaper, long lasting alternative to pressure washing is a highly effective way to get your Cambridge patio looking great, while benefiting the environment, because it doesn’t involve the use of harsh chemicals.
Patio Cleaning For Long Lasting Results
Instead of blasting the dirt and nasties away, there are two ways to approach patio cleaning in Cambridge – either call in the experts for a spot of professional surface cleaning, or, if you have the time, have a go at doing it yourself, regularly, using products from around the home to get superb, long lasting results.
Here’s what to do…
Mix up some magic patio cleaning mixture using the following proportions:
- ½ cup of white wine vinegar
- ½ cup of baking soda
- 1 cup of warm water
Before you start your patio cleaning in Cambridge, pull up any weeds that you can from between the cracks, trying to get as much of the root out as possible.
Get your patio area nice and wet with a good dousing from your hose. Then, using a sponge or spray bottle, apply the magic mixture to one area of the patio at a time and allow plenty of opportunity for it to soak in.
The worse the area is, the longer you’ll need to give the patio cleaning mixture a chance to work its magic. After it’s permeated the surface then have your hard bristled brush at the ready, because it’s time to get scrubbing like there’s no tomorrow!

Remember to get those patio joints clean and clear, as well as the surface of the slabs. Once you’ve scrubbed away the dirt and grime, switch the power setting on on your hose once more and give it a good rinse off.
Then look forward to having your patio looking like new as you watch it dry in the gleaming sunshine.
