Patio Care Tips: How to Clean and Maintain Decorative Concrete
When properly maintained, these decorative concrete patios, walkways, and driveways can last for many years. They are easier to care for than the more traditional brick, blacktop or concrete surfaces. However, proper care will preserve the beauty and prolong the lifespan of your decorative concrete surfaces.
It is advisable to frequently sweep or blow off your decorative concrete in order to prevent decaying leaves, twigs, buds and other debris from staining the surface. Avoid dragging furniture and other heavy objects across surfaces to eliminate unnecessary scratches.
