What Should You Consider When Choosing A Patio Cleaning Solution?

With winter coming to an end, attention turns towards revitalising outdoor spaces in preparation for the forthcoming warmer seasons. Among the essential tasks is cleaning patios to eliminate winter debris and mould accumulation.

In this article, we’ll look at the key factors you ought to consider and prioritise in selecting the most suitable patio cleaning solution for your customer's needs.

Safety Worries

The safety of any product used is one of the most important factors for many customers, particularly if they have children or pets. It’s also something keen gardeners will worry about—the last thing they want is a cleaner that destroys their prize blooms or wrecks a beautiful lawn.

When choosing which garden patio cleaner to stock, it’s essential you address these issues early on with your provider so you can ensure you know exactly what is in the product and what its potential effects are.


The type of surface people want to clean is also an important consideration. Indeed, many homeowners will have multiple surfaces that may require different applications. For example, some customers might have concrete paving or porcelain tiles, while others might have resin-bound areas. Some may be looking to clean their decking, too, in which case it’s important to know if it’s traditional wood decking or composite.

For these reasons, it’s also worth checking with your supplier to see if any patio cleaning solutions they provide can also be used on other surfaces, such as metal, plastic, or stone.

Sustainability And The Environment

Customers are increasingly conscious of the environmental impact cleaning chemicals have and the cost involved in producing them. Indeed, environmental awareness is a key driver in whether someone will ultimately purchase a product.

Ideally, they want a patio cleaning solution that is kind to the environment and produced sustainably, with a reduced or minimal carbon footprint.

Ease Of Use

A cleaning solution that requires minimal effort on the part of the customer is often better received than one that requires diluting or involves a complicated process. This needs to be considered carefully when stocking or creating your own patio cleaning products.

However, cleaning strength must also be considered alongside ease of use because it still has to do what the customer wants it to. You’ll need a garden patio cleaner that is long-lasting but also quick to use—in effect, it must offer maximum effectiveness for minimal effort.
