3 Tips for Prepping Your Concrete Patio for Spring, Windham, Connecticut

With winter ending and spring almost here, it’s an opportune time to get your concrete patio ready for the warm season. By caring for it, you can help keep it in pristine condition and extend its life span, saving you from having to pay for a replacement. Here’s a guide to maintaining your patio before spring. 

Best Practices for Getting Your Patio Ready for Spring

1. Avoid Stains

Since many homeowners have guests on their patio in spring, it’s worth avoiding unsightly stains on the concrete. To keep the surface spotless, regularly sweep and remove any debris that collects on the patio. For example, get rid of leaves, branches, and blown flowers. Use a leaf blower to save time. 

2. Schedule Sealing Services

concreteHave your patio sealed every one to two years, depending on its condition. This will create an extra buffer on top of the surface. Specifically, it will help repel any oil spills and ensure water doesn’t seep down into the pores, loosening the soil below. Finally, it will block ultraviolet rays, which weaken the top layer of your patio. 

3. Avoid Harsh Cleaners

If you notice any mild spots on your surface, avoid using harsh chemicals like bleach to get rid of them. These can remove a stain, but they will also weaken the integrity of the concrete, leading to ruptures down the line. Instead, create a solution using vinegar or baking soda mixed with water; this will provide a gentler but still effective option.
