The brilliance of summer!

When summer is here, many garden, patio and balcony owners move their focus of life outdoors. To feel at home under the open sky as equally as within your own four walls, your outdoor areas also need to be regularly cleaned. So that you still have time to enjoy the warm season after cleaning, we have produced MELLERUD expert tips. This way you rid the patio, garden and balcony of dirt effortlessly and quickly and can enjoy your well-deserved peace.

Main cause of damp

Even during the summer months there is no break from dirt. Just the opposite. A good example is the windows, where the dirt becomes highly visible under the sunlight. And neither is there any respite from dirt for garden furniture, patio paving or patio wood, barbecues or awnings. Luckily, for every stain and type of dirt MELLERUD has the right cleaning product, which makes removal child's play.

Patios and garden furniture

Natural stone, slabs or hardwood – if a lot of life happens on your patio, stains are not far away. Rust on barbecue legs, greasy stains from food leftovers or bike chains and other contamination. MELLERUD has the right specialist cleaning product. For example, its Heavy-Duty Intensive Cleaner and other products specifically for treating hardwood. In addition, you will also find the right solution at MELLERUD to sustainably protect the sub-surface from new dirt build-up and weathering.

Tip for patio cleaning

Don't use high pressure!

When cleaning your patio, the high pressure cleaner is not necessarily the best choice! For the water pressure pushes particles of dirt and microorganisms deeper into the material and makes the surface porous. It would be better to reach for MELLERUD Algae & Green Growth Remover

Irrespective of whether garden furniture is stored inside or outside – in summer it is under high demand. To keep your furnishing in good condition at all times, irrespective of the material, you should regularly remove dirt and protect the material well. For example, by using MELLERUD Garden Furniture Cleaner for garden furniture made from plastic, glass, coated metal and wood. Furniture made from hardwood such as teak, robinia, mahogany, beech, oak and bangkirai is cared for using MELLERUD Wood and WPC Cleaner and for the long-term maintenance and sustainable protection, MELLERUD Teak Oil is an excellent solution.

Tip for plastic garden furniture

No pressure! 

Plastic garden furniture gets a grey film over time – and that's very normal. Dust is responsible for this, it deposits and discolours the material. This dirt is indeed stubborn but don't try to remove it with abrasive agents and hard brushes. This causes fine scratches which enables the dirt takes even greater hold. It's better to wipe down regularly and use MELLERUD Garden Furniture Cleaner. This cleans thoroughly and gently, without damaging the material and also maintaining it.

Awnings and barbecues

Besides bird droppings and weathering, the sun is the biggest enemy of awnings. While you are relaxing under its protection, the intensive radiation attacks the material and damages the surface. Using MELLERUD Awning Cleaner you can clean awnings of dirt, MELLERUD Awning Waterproofer provides effective protection against water and all weathering.

Tip for awnings

Only roll them away when dry!

After each cleaning and before rolling them up (particularly for winter storage), the awning needs to be completely dry! Otherwise the damp will cause discolouration from water spots and fungal infestation in the form of mould stains.

Burnt-on and greasy stains on the barbecue are persistent and even in summer, when many barbecues are continuously burning, you still need to regularly clean the grill as a matter of course. Which isn't a problem if you have the right cleaning product to hand. Using MELLERUD Oven & BBQ Cleaner you'll be ready for the next barbecue. Simply spray on neat, leave to work for 10 to 15 minutes, work in and rinse off thoroughly.

Tip for BBQs

An all-rounder against grease!

Modern barbecues are no longer made of just a grate and a fire bowl. For all accessories and all materials on and used with your barbecue, MELLERUD Kitchen Degreaser is always the right choice. The cleaning product works just as quickly and reliably against grease and greasy deposits on barbecues as it does in the kitchen!

See: MELLERUD will make your summer clean and tidy and you can enjoy the glorious weather and your gleaming garden or balcony without a worry. Have fun!
