How to Ensure Your Patio Paving is Perfect for Summer

As one of the leading suppliers of patio paving in Hull, we know our fair share of tips and tricks when it comes to cleaning and maintaining your patio!
Ordering Your Patio Paving Before Summer
If you’re looking to get your garden summer-ready, now is the time to start! As the weather is getting milder, garden work can be completed with little weather disruption (a big problem in the UK!).
By ordering your patio paving today, you’re giving yourself around 10 weeks until the start of summer to get your garden looking perfect for the hot weather, BBQs and weekends in the garden - allowing you to enjoy your new, luxurious space all summer long!
Cleaning Your Patio Paving
If you already have patio paving, one of the problems you may be facing after the long, cold and wet winter, is getting your patio looking like it did when you first got it. Especially if it hasn't been cleaned in a while.
Luckily, cleaning your patio is typically fairly easy. Most of the time, you can get away with warm soapy water and a stiff-bristled brush (as long as there isn’t too much built up dirt). We recommend doing this in sections to avoid the water cooling down, as cold water doesn’t clean as well.
Cleaning can also be done using a pressure washer on a low-medium setting, ensuring to keep the nozzle at least one foot away from the surface of the stone to prevent damage.
If you’re needing something a little stronger than just soap and water, we also offer a paving accessories range which includes everything you’ll need to get the harsher dirt and stains off your patio!
Maintaining the Perfect Patio
Once you have gotten your perfect new patio, you want to make sure that it looks as good as possible 24/7. By ensuring good maintenance, you’re giving your patio the best chance of long life.
To maintain the perfect patio, we recommend:
Regular sweeping and brushing to clear dirt & debris and prevent harmful plants and weeds.
Regular cleaning using patio specific cleaning products, both scrubbing and power washing if possible
Seal paving and fill joints as and when necessary
