Cleaning your balcony may seem like a daunting task. However, with the right tools and products, it doesn’t have to be difficult. There are several ways to clean a balcony without a hose.
Doing this will not only help save time but also effort as well. In this post, we will discuss some of these methods and provide important tips for making the cleaning process easier.
Sweep Dust and Debris
The first step is to sweep away any dust and debris that has built up over time with either a broom or hand brush. This will help you get rid of any cobwebs, leaves and other debris that may have accumulated on different areas of the balcony. If snow has built up over time, you can add water to the snow. Doing this will help the snow loosen up. Grab a shovel and remove the snow from your balcony.
Mop with Warm Water
After sweeping away dust and debris, you can mop your balcony floor with warm water to get rid of any dirt or grime. Wring out your mop thoroughly to prevent the pooling of water. You should use a sponge or cloth to get into tight spaces.
Once the water has been spread around, let it sit for a few minutes so that the dirt and grime can loosen up. Use a brush or broom to sweep it all away.Then, you can use a disinfectant cleaner or all-purpose cleaner to further cleanse the surfaces.
If there are stubborn stains, you can use warm, soapy water to help loosen them up before sweeping them away.
Scrub Hard-To-Reach Areas
You may need to use an old toothbrush or other scrubbing brush to get into hard-to-reach areas such as corners and cracks between tiles. This will help you remove any mold or mildew that may be persisting in these places. It’s also a good idea to wear protective gloves as well as a mask while doing this to avoid breathing in any harmful spores.
Clean Outdoor Furniture
If you have outdoor furniture on your balcony, regularly clean them with a mild detergent solution. This will help get rid of any dirt or grime that may have accumulated on the furniture over time. After cleaning and drying them, you can also apply a waterproofing spray to further protect them against rain and moisture.
Clean Your Plants/Pots
After cleaning your outdoor furniture, you may also want to clean your plants if you have any on your balcony. Over time, the pots tend to attract dust. Thus, you may want to wipe the flower or plant pots with a wet towel. You may also want to clean the base of the pots as well. If you don’t have a balcony garden yet, then you might want to consider making an east facing balcony garden.
By following these simple steps, you can easily clean your balcony without a hose. Just remember to be thorough and use the appropriate tools and substances for each task, and your balcony will be good as new in no time!
