Jet Washing Your Patio: A Fresh Start for Spring

Jet Washing

Embrace the new season by giving your patio a thorough jet wash. Clear away the remnants of winter and welcome a clean state for outdoor gatherings.

How do you jet wash paving slabs?

  1. Preparation – Begin by removing any furniture, planters, or decorative items from the patio. Sweeping away loose debris ensures a more effective cleaning process.
  2. Choosing the right cleaner – Select a high-quality patio cleaner that suits the material of your patio.
  3. Application – Apply the cleaner evenly across the patio surface. Allow it to sit for the recommended time, allowing it to penetrate and loosen stubborn dirt and stains.
  4. Jet washing technique – Use a reliable pressure washer to effectively clean your patio. Keep the nozzle at a safe distance to prevent damage to delicate surfaces. Start from one corner and work your away across, ensuring thorough coverage.
  5. Rinsing – Once the jet washing is complete, thoroughly rinse the patio with clean water. This step ensures the removal of any remaining cleaning solution and leaves your patio looking refreshed, ideal for any upcoming parties.
