How to Clean Your Outdoor Areas

by Linda Cleans 28 Mar 2024


  • Cleaning your patio can be an easy task if you follow these steps:
  • Remove any furniture or large objects from the patio surface.
  • Sweep the entire area to remove loose dirt, leaves, and debris.
  • Mix a solution of warm water and mild dish soap in a bucket or use our patio cleaner that's appropriate for your patio material.
  • Wet the patio surface with a hose or watering can.
  • Dip a stiff bristle brush or deck scrub into the water solution and scrub the entire patio surface. Pay extra attention to any heavily soiled areas or stains.
  • Rinse the patio with clean water using a hose or watering can. Make sure to remove all soap residue.
  • For particularly stubborn stains, you can use a dedicated patio stain remover or a mixture of white vinegar and water. Apply the solution directly to the stain, let it soak for a few minutes, then scrub with a brush and rinse thoroughly.
  • If you have a concrete patio, you may want to consider using a pressure washer for a more thorough cleaning. However, be cautious as pressure washers can damage certain materials, so make sure to follow the manufacturer's guidelines and adjust the pressure accordingly.
  • Once the patio is clean and dry, you can put back any furniture or objects you removed earlier.


  • Cleaning artificial grass is a relatively simple process. Here's how you can do it:
  • Remove any large debris such as leaves, twigs, or pet waste from the artificial grass using a leaf blower or a rake.
  • Mix a solution of warm water and mild detergent or artificial grass cleaner in a bucket. Make sure to follow the instructions on the cleaner bottle for the correct dilution ratio.
  • Wet the artificial grass with a hose to remove any loose dirt or dust.
  • Apply the soapy solution to the entire area using a soft-bristle brush, broom, or rake. Make sure to scrub gently to avoid damaging the artificial grass fibres.
  • Pay extra attention to any stains or heavily soiled areas. If necessary, use a scrub brush to agitate the cleaner into the stain.
  • Let the cleaner sit on the grass for a few minutes to absorb dirt and odours.
  • Rinse the artificial grass thoroughly with clean water, either using a hose or watering can. Ensure that all the soap residue is completely removed.
  • Allow the artificial grass to air dry. Avoid walking on it until it is completely dry to prevent damaging the fibres.
  • Regular maintenance for artificial grass includes brushing the grass with a stiff broom or a special artificial grass brush to keep the fibres upright and prevent matting. It's also essential to keep the grass clear of debris to maintain its appearance and drainage capabilities.


  • Cleaning your decking can help maintain its appearance and longevity. Here's how to clean your decking:
  • Remove any furniture, pots, or other items from the deck so you have a clear surface to work with. Sweep away any loose dirt, leaves, or debris using a broom.
  • Mix warm water and mild dish soap or a specialised deck cleaner in a bucket. Follow the instructions on the deck cleaner label for the correct dilution ratio if using one. Avoid using bleach or harsh chemicals as they can damage the wood.
  • Wet the deck surface with a hose or watering can. Then, use a soft-bristle brush or a deck brush to apply the cleaning solution to the deck surface. Scrub the deck in the direction of the wood grain to remove dirt, stains, and mildew.
  • If there are any stubborn stains or discolouration, you can make a paste with baking soda and water or use a deck stain remover. Apply the paste or stain remover to the affected area and scrub gently with the brush.
  • Once you have scrubbed the entire deck, rinse it thoroughly with clean water. Use a hose or pressure washer on a low setting to remove any soap residue and dirt. Make sure to rinse the deck completely, including the spaces between the deck boards.
  • Let the deck air dry completely before placing any furniture or objects back on it. This will prevent moisture from getting trapped and potentially causing damage to the wood.
  • Depending on the type of wood your deck is made of, you may choose to apply a protective finish like a deck stain or sealer. This can help protect the wood from moisture, UV rays, and other elements. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for application and drying time.
  • Regularly maintaining your deck by cleaning and refinishing it as needed will help prolong its life and keep it looking its best.
