How to Clean a Patio with Apply and Leave Cleaners.
- Firstly, give your paving a good brush with a stiff broom to remove all loose dirt, old leaves and any other surface debris. This is important because it will be easier to see any weeds when your patio is clear.
- Remove any larger weeds that are growing in between your patio paving joints.
- Removing weeds and moss is easier once the weeds have died. So consider applying a weed killer to kill the weeds and moss before removing them. Then once the weeds have died remove with either a tool or by hand.
- Inspect your paving for any broken paving or failed pointing that there might be. Make good and repair any broken paving or pointing before you apply paving cleaners.
- Then decide if you need to use a jet washer to remove any remaining moss, weeds or dirt and grime. You may need to do this because paving cleaners will not always kill the deep-rooted weeds in your paving. If they do kill the weeds and moss, the weeds still need removing from the joints.
- If you need to buy a paving cleaner with an inbuilt weed killer then check to see that the cleaner will kill your weeds at the same time as cleaning your paving.
- Once the paving is free from weeds you can apply the cleaner according to the manufactures instructions.
- All of the patio cleaners we have reviewed above will effectively kill weeds, moss and algae from your paving without the need for jet washing afterwards.
Often a good scrub with a stiff brush will help you clean your paving and give you a good indicator as to what kind of cleaning product you will need to buy. In many cases, you can simply apply the cleaning solution to the paving and then leave.
Which Paving cleaning product to use?
If a strong cleaning product is needed to clean your paving then first decide what kind of cleaner you need. Is the dirt just a build up of grime or weeds or do you need to clean with an oil remover?

Always follow the instructions with the patio cleaner according to the manufactures instructions. Some cleaners require the patio to be wetted first with water. Other paving cleaners are just ‘wet and leave’ type patio cleaners. After applying the patio cleaning solution here is no scrubbing or washing required. You simply apply and leave.
