How to remove stains from your patio

We get asked this question by so many of our customers. You quite often find that if people are investing in some new Lazy Susan Patio Furniture, then they've just had a new patio built or they are trying to tidy up an existing patio.

But trust me when I say, nothing can spoil a patio like an unsightly stain. Be it splashes of grease from the BBQ or a glass of red wine knocked over by a friend at that summer party. It could even be all Mother Nature's fault, she can be cruel.

However, depending on the material your patio is constructed from, and the type of stain will depend on the best way to clean your patio...

So with that in mind, we've scoured the internet and pulled together some great How To videos that specifically look at different cleaning methods for the UK's popular patio materials:
