Here at Mone Bros DIY, our patio paving will need a certain level of maintenance to keep it looking at its very best. Now, to remove any general dirt, we recommend that you regularly brush it, and if the colour starts to deteriorate, it can be saved by scrubbing with soap and warm water, vinegar or a power washer. All of our step-by-step guides can be found below.

Soap and warm water

Tools & materials needed: Bucket, hard-bristle brush, hose pipe, warm water and washing up liquid.

1.       Clear the patio of any furniture

2.       Get some washing up liquid and warm water, and mix it together in a bucket.

3.       Pour the bucket over the area where the colour is starting to fade.

4.       Using a hard-bristled brush, scrub the area.

5.       Then rinse the scrubbed area with clean water.

6.       Leave it for at least 24 hours.

7.       Repeat the cleaning process again if needed.

8.       Put all furniture back
