Edinburgh Patio Cleaning
PATIO CLEANERS EDINBURGH
Window Shine offer a comprehensive patio cleaning service In Edinburgh; this includes pressure washing patios in Edinburgh and the Lothians, soft washing patios in Edinburgh and also patio repointing within the region. We achieve these results through the use of a commercial pressure washer that cuts through the buildup of dirt with ease, always ensuring that our operatives are fully trained to comply with not only our health and safety protocols but also with the appropriate use of the industry leading machines we use. See our home page for a list of all service we offer https://www.window-shine.co.uk
HOW WE CLEAN PATIOS IN EDINBURGH
Window shine have years of experience in this area, in fact if you look up our Facebook business page you will see many excellent reviews related to patio and driveway cleaning. As mentioned, we use industry leading machines which include items such as the Honda gx390 pressure washer; this is an important addition to our service description here because such machines supply water at a pressure and overall flow that penetrates the most stubborn of dirt. An electric pressure washer simply will not have the pressure to clean heavily stained patios effectively. We use a large water container to feed the pressure washer, because direct tap pressure alone isn’t enough to keep our machine producing the water supply it is intended for. The container is used for the machine to draw up water as it requires, and depending on the surface of the patio we will either use our pressure washer to initially clean the surface dirt or we may use the flat surface cleaner/rotary cleaner. This second item mentioned is a machine that uses a circular motion on the ground to remove all dirt with a lower pressure than a pressure washer. Once we have cleaned the initial top layer of grime we can soft wash patios, this isn’t a new procedure by any means but is a new term to many of the general public. It involves the use of safe chemicals, used to remove lichen and other stains on patios that water pressure alone will not lift. See our blog here for more information on the process.
EDINBURGH PATIO RE POINTING
Re jointing a patio is a common service we provide, not all patios have mortar in the joints but it is often the case that Indian Sand Stone ones in particular do. If you imagine cleaning an older patio that has some rough or broken jointing, it is inevitable that these joints may also need repointed after a pressure wash. We firstly remove the old mortar using a patio knife to remove mortar and also a hammer and a bolster can be used to tackle mortar that’s more difficult to remove. Cement based mortar in particular often fails over time and needs this service; this can be due to the original mix that was laid ie a weak 20:1 mix not being suitable for long term joint stability. When installing new mortar, there are many variables that impact what is used but resin mortar is a common type that is used, along with a wet slurry brush to carry out the re jointing itself. Manufacturer instructions are essentially what decides what process we use, however it is vital to note that loose paving slabs may need to also be rebedded before being re pointed; because they are already not sitting firm within the base of the patio and will lead to cracked jointing again.
PATIO SEALING IN EDINBURGH
Sealants are used as the final course of action for newly cleaned patios. By that we mean that when your patio is cleaned and potentially sanded or re pointed as well, we want it to last like this for a long time. Sealants can be thought of as liquid glue that is applied onto the patio surface; and when this hardens it provides a layer of protection against the elements, stains and potential spills. If your patio has been re sanded then this service also offers much more likelihood of the sand not washing away during the next heavy rain shower and also inhibits the growth of weeds more than a patio with no sealer.
Sealers come in a variety of types, such as acrylic sealers water based sealers and so on. The purpose of sealers can be broken down into sub categories- coatings, that sit on the surface and act as a barrier between patio surfaces and elements, impregnators-which penetrate the capillaries within the stone or concrete itself and colour enhancers-which vary from a wet look finish to sealers that actually change the colour of the paving surface. We can offer a service that is bespoke to your individual requirements. Here is a link to a respectable manufacturer that we often use for some of our sealants https://www.resiblock.com/
