Cleaning of balconies and terraces

dust and earth of pots

Dedicate yourself to cleaning the balcony! A beautiful job during spring and summer, a bit more difficult to do in winter when the cold is king. In fact, during the winter months the balcony and terrace are neglected and bad weather can also cause damage.

How to clean balconies and terraces for the summer?

First, we need to move all the pots and remove the leaves and petals of the flowers that have blossomed in spring. Then, let the broom become our magical tool with which to vigorously brush floors, walls and railings. Let's proceed step by step and start from the parapets.

Railings

If they are made of marble, which is a very delicate material, all aggressive products must be excluded to clean it. For this reason, we recommend using Marseille soap which, in addition to being neutral, is also colorless.

Pour 4 tablespoons of grated Marseille soap into a bucket of hot water , mix well so that the soap melts then, with a broom brush, remove the most difficult encrustations. We wipe with a cloth or the "mop" to remove the dirt.

Flooring

For rather resistant flooring such as slate and stoneware, we will first have to equip ourselves with a bucket and throw generous amounts of water to remove the first layer of dirt. As a second more thorough cleaning, fill a bucket with hot water and then add 1 cup of grated Marseille soap, 1 cup of baking soda and 2 cups of white vinegar . We scrub vigorously with a brush and rinse and let them dry.

Like marble, terracotta is also very delicate and can only be treated with a few ingredients. Our advice is to simply wash it with water and white vinegar. The latter, in addition to sanitizing, helps us to remove limescale residues left by the rain To clean a terrace with pebble tiles, with the right tools and with a little patience, the terrace will be as good as new.
