A concrete patio needs proper maintenance for the material to have a long lifespan. With a power washing concrete cleaning and sealing service, your patio will look new and keep its appearance longer.
Why Do You Need Cleaning and Sealing for Your Concrete Patio?
Cleaning your patio is more than just giving it a fresh coat of paint. Dirt, mildew, and mold all build up over time, can discolor your concrete surface, and cause damage to its texture, appearance, and structure. By removing these substances regularly, you will be able to maintain the original look of your patio while also making sure it will last as long as possible.
Concrete sealing is a process that helps protect your patio from weathering, staining, and other damage. It forms a barrier on the surface of the concrete that inhibits the penetration of water, oil, and other substances. With this process, your patio is looking its best for years to come.
When Should You Clean and Seal Your Concrete Patio?
At least once a year, especially if there is foot traffic on your patio. Its frequent use will result in more frequent maintenance as the more people walk on your patio, the more dirt and debris it will accumulate.
The Weather Conditions
A lot of rain will make your patio need concrete cleaning and sealing more often. However, if your area has very little precipitation, this will not be as big a concern.
The Type of Grout You Use
Different types of grout require different cleaning and sealing techniques. If you’re using a traditional sanded grout, you will need to have your patio professionally cleaned before applying the first sealant. However, using a non-sanded grout will only need a sealing process once it has completely dried.
Whether You Have Stamped or Plain Concrete
Different sealants are better suited for different types of concrete. If you have stamped concrete, you will need to use a sealant specifically designed for this type of surface. Otherwise, a sticky, tacky mess will be the end result.
The Type of Soil You Have Around Your Home
Different soil conditions can affect how often you need to clean and seal your patio. Areas with acidic soils will often need to be cleaned and sealed more often than those with alkaline soils.
