We’re the experts in outdoor surface cleaning and sealing at Renew Crew. We take great pride in revitalizing our clients’ decks, patios, walkways, gutters, fences, siding and more. Using our eco-friendly cleaning products, we’re able to wash away most, if not all, of the dirt and grime that’s built up over time.
The last step in our process is protecting the surface we’ve just cleaned. By applying a protective layer, we stop the nasty elements we just cleaned from settling back into the wood, vinyl, stone or concrete. Without it, it wouldn’t take long for the surface to go back to the old, dirty look.
While Renew Crew’s protectant helps to keep the surface looking great, there are things you can do the same.
Remove yard debris. Whether it’s sticks or leaves or other type of natural debris, it ends up on your outdoor surfaces from time to time. While it won’t cause stains or build up dirt right away, the longer it sits, the more likely it is to leave marks, especially when wet. Whenever you’re walking your property, remove or sweep off your outdoor surfaces.
Rinse with a hose periodically. Like yard debris, dust, pollen and dirt end up on you deck, patio, walkway or driveway. It is sitting out in the elements! Taking your garden hose to it every once in a while will wash away any of the lose elements, and it will make your space look better instantly. You may not even notice what was sitting on your surface until it’s all gone!
Move and check under objects. If you spend a lot of time outdoors, it is probable that you have objects outside, be them furniture, pots or accessories. You may not even notice that those objects are leaving marks or stains on your outdoor surfaces. Flower pots are one of the most common culprits. The mixture of soil or mulch and the standing water in the saucer underneath calls for stains, but they can be addressed easily! If you see stains, take a look online to see how you can clean them (here’s our guide to cleaning flower pot stains).
