Clean up Tips for Balconies and Patios

Clean up Tips for Balconies and Patios

Spring is a great time to repair or restore outdoor surfaces and furniture from damage caused by rust, rot, bird droppings, mould, mildew, etc. Not only does deterioration look unsightly, it can also be unhealthy and dangerous. For example, algae, mould and lichens can trigger allergies, and make wood surfaces, decks, patios and balconies very slippery. You can clean them with a chemical agent (but always test first) or scrub them with a brush and a homemade environmentally friendly solution made of vinegar or lemon juice. To clean vinyl furniture, try a mild detergent/water formula. For metal furniture and railings, use a wire brush to remove rust and paint chips, then coat with a primer before touching up with rust paint
