Spring Cleaning Your Patio

The weather is warming up, which means it’s time to enjoy outdoor living again! Like other areas of your home, your patio needs a good spring cleaning. Your patio space has likely endured a lot over the past few months and needs a good refresh before you can get back to enjoying its beauty and comfort. But where to begin?

From the Ambrosio Landscape Solutions Team, here are a few tips to help you spring clean your patio: 

Clear out Dirt and Debris

First things first, you need to clear out anything that doesn’t belong. Any branches, sticks, leaves, and other debris should be removed. Dirt and dust can be swept away, so it doesn’t continue to build up. Next, you’ll want to relocate any furniture and decor so that you can continue your cleaning with a clear and open space. Finally, you’ll want to look for any serious cracks and damages on your patio that need attention before continuing.    

Deep Clean

Whether wood, concrete, stone, etc., the floor that makes up your patio will need a good cleaning to get rid of all the grime and dirt built up over the past few months. The best way to do so is to use a power washer. Power washing, also known as pressure washing, uses a high-pressure water spray to loosen and remove the gunk that has built up across your patio floor.  

Wash Your Furniture

It’s likely your furniture could also use a good cleaning, even if it was covered. Get rid of any dirt, bugs, and grime with a good soapy cleanse of all your patio furniture and decor left outside through fall and winter. If it’s safe to do so, try using your power washer to clean your furniture, too!

Care for Your Plants

If you keep plants on your patio, make sure they get the care and attention they need now that spring has arrived. This may include repotting, refreshing soil, relocating, and watering.  

Replace Your Lights

Don’t be left in the dark when it’s time to enjoy your patio and the sun goes down. Replace all your light bulbs, so you don’t have to worry about them going out during the spring and summer months.  

Reassemble and Decorate

Now that everything is nice and clean, it’s time to put everything back the way you like it, so it’s ready to be used. Once the furniture, plants, pots, etc., are back in their spots, it’s time to decorate with all the accessories you love to make your patio the perfect space for you and your loved ones to enjoy the outdoors.
