Cleaning the balcony, terrace or veranda may seem demanding, but with suitable methods, it becomes a quick and easy operation. From using a broom or hoover to remove dirt and leaves, to using a water and detergent solution to wash the floor, let’s explore practical ways to keep the balcony clean and inviting. With these tips, you can enjoy a clean and cosy outdoor space to relax and enjoy the view.
Cleaning a very dirty balcony, terrace or veranda may seem arduous, but with a little planning and the right tools, you can restore its beauty in no time. First of all, it is important to remove all objects and furniture on the balcony, terrace or veranda to facilitate access to all surfaces. Next, use a broom or a stiff-bristled broom to remove dust, leaves and other debris from the floor and walls of the balcony, terrace or veranda.
Once the worst of the dirt has been removed, use a hoover or handheld vac to remove smaller residues and dust particles.
For stubborn stains or tile floors, you can choose a specific outdoor cleaner or a solution of warm water and mild soap. To scrub stains and remove encrusted dirt, use a stiff bristle brush or a paintbrush: for wooden surfaces, use a dedicated wood cleaner and follow the product’s instructions to avoid mistakes!
Finally, rinse thoroughly with clean water and let the balcony, terrace or veranda dry completely before returning items and furniture. Remember to wear protective gloves and protect any plants or flowers on the balcony during the cleaning process. With a little patience and commitment, the balcony will shine again.
Marble thresholds can be a beautiful element, but they require regular care and cleaning to keep them in excellent condition. When cleaning marble thresholds, it is important to use gentle products that do not damage the surface.
Start by removing dust and dirt with a soft bristle brush or a dry cloth. Next, prepare a solution of warm water and mild soap. Dip a soft cloth in the solution and wring it out so it is only damp, not wet. Gently clean the marble sill, taking care not to apply too much pressure to avoid scratching.
If there are stubborn stains, you can use a specific marble cleaner or a paste of baking soda and water. Apply the paste to the stain, leave it to work for a few minutes and then gently wipe it off with a soft cloth. Thoroughly rinse with clean water to remove all residue, and wipe the marble sill with a dry cloth to avoid the formation of streaking. Finally, to keep the marble beautiful over time, we recommend applying a special marble sealant every 6-12 months. Avoid acidic products, such as vinegar or lemon juice, which can damage the marble. With regular and careful cleaning, marble thresholds will remain shiny and last over time.
Outdoor railings are exposed to the elements and can accumulate dust, dirt and even rust over time. Regular cleaning of outdoor railings is important not only to maintain their pleasant appearance but also to ensure they last over time.
To clean outdoor railings, start by removing dust and dirt with a soft bristle brush or a dry cloth. Next, prepare a solution of warm water and neutral soap, such as Marseille soap. Soak a sponge or soft cloth in the solution and wring it so it is only damp, not wet.
Gently clean the railing, taking care to reach all cracks and corners. If there are stubborn stains or rust, use a dedicated metal cleaner or a mixture of white vinegar and baking soda. Apply the cleaner to the stain or rust and leave it to work for a few minutes. Rub gently with a sponge or soft cloth, and finally, rinse thoroughly with clean water to remove all soap or detergent residue. Wipe down the railings with a dry cloth to prevent streaking.
If the railings are metal, apply a thin coat of wax to protect them from rust and weathering. Remember to wear protective gloves when cleaning and protect plants or flowers on the plant.
