Keep Your Concrete Patio Clean

One of the easiest things you can do to protect your concrete patio is to clean it regularly. Sweeping or pressure washing can keep your surface from eroding. Spray away dirt and debris every week or two. If you spill grease or food, clean up the spill as soon as possible with appropriate stain removers.


Use A Concrete Sealer

One of the best things you can do to protect your concrete is to regularly seal it. Sealing protects the concrete from corrosion and also preserves its shine and color, which is especially important if you invested in stamped concrete. You can apply sealer yourself, just be careful and follow the manufacturer’s directions closely.

Wax Stamped Concrete

It doesn’t hurt to wax or polish a stamped concrete patio, especially if it gets a lot of foot traffic. Foot traffic can cause specific areas to wear and waxing or polishing adds extra protection against scuffs and dirt.
