How to Spring Clean your porch


The best way to clean your porch is to use a solution of warm water and a safe cleaner named Simple green on the concrete patio, leave the mixture on for 15 minutes scrub with brush then rinse.
 To get rid of stains on concrete add 1 cup of bleach to a 10 x 10 foot patio.  Use a pressure washer to clean steps to remove dirt, mildew. 

If you have a teak wood patio deck it should be washed, then dried, then a teak sealer should be used for protection.  To clean wicker furniture use a soft brush and a mild dish detergent soap to wash the surface without damaging it.

Wipe down outdoor lighting fixtures with damp cloth; and clean out door cushions with a sponge water and mild soap and let dry in the sun.
