How to maintain your patio to keep it beautiful

gable (10)You love your patio. You do want to use it all year round, don’t you?

Well, good news! You can continue to spend your lazy times on your patio doing your favourite book or with a bunch of friends – you just have to set some time to maintain your patio.

The importance of maintaining your patio

Your patio, like any parts of your home, needs some TLC from you. Patios are located outside which makes them vulnerable to outdoor elements such as rain, wind and heat from the sun.

  • Your patio can be damaged if you don’t check it from time to time. Prevention is always the best form of cure.
  • Check your patio to see if any components need to be replaced. Patio maintenance allows you to prevent damage from happening.
  • A well-maintained patio can last for a long time. You can use it all year round too – whether it’s winter, spring, summer or autumn.

By doing a bit of maintenance, you can keep your patio functional and beautiful all throughout the year. Here are some things to do:

Get rid of weeds

If you see some weeds crawling up the poles of your patio, remove them. Pull them out before they become a problem.

Clean your patio

Sweep your patio and get rid of any rubbish you see in your patio. Remove stains, mould and dirt if you see any. A clean patio is a beautiful patio!

Clean the Gutters

Clean the leaves from the gutter and cobwebs from the ceiling of your patio will help prevent damage caused by dirt build up. If your gutters are filled with leaves, they can cause the drains to overflow and over time cause many problems.
