Clean Balcony

Hi guys

 

I need some help! My balcony cement is getting really grotty and I don't know how to clean it in a quick and easy way without any water pressure.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Hi @Inez,

 

Welcome to the Workshop community. It's great to have you join us. I hope you find the site useful and look forward to hearing about your projects.

 

Sorry to hear about your concrete. As its porous, it certainly can be difficult to keep clean. Can you tell us what is staining the concrete?

Re: Clean Balcony

You could try white vinegar and a stiff brush to give it a scrub first off and if that doeasn't work (depending what it is that's making it grotty)  30 Second Outdoor Cleaner is good. 

 

Good luck!

Any chance you can polish the concrete?

 

Here's a before and after example of some stained concrete that's been polished.

Re: Clean Balcony

Hi @Inez,

 

Just wondering how you went cleaning your balcony? Have you had a go at it yet?

 

We had a discussion this week on the hardest thing to clean in your house - sounds like this is a candidate!
