When it comes to cleaning paving and patios that have taken a beating, Alpharetta homeowners often turn to strong chemical solutions. These cleaning products often provide assurances of getting the job done with minimum effort. The problem is, they may affect your surfaces in ways that are not expected.
Cleaning any outdoor surface can be a laborious task. If you are tempted to rely on harsh chemical cleaners, take a minute to consider the risks. Not all chemical cleaners are problematic, but it is difficult for the average homeowner to discern between the available products. With that in mind, here are some negative effects of using chemical cleaners.
Health & Safety Concerns
It is important to understand that all applied cleaning products are made of chemicals. The issue for homeowners is that some chemicals are more toxic and potentially dangerous than others. For instance, industrial strength chemical cleaners are a health hazard if fumes are inhaled or the liquid ingested.
Families should avoid any cleaning products that come with a hazardous warning label. Young children or pets can get sick from ingesting these products while playing in your yard. The better alternative is hiring a professional pressure washing company to safely rejuvenate your paving and patio areas.
Over time, many strong chemical cleaners will cause pavement and patio surfaces to suffer from discoloration. This issue is often slow to develop, so you may not see the damage until it is too late. Trust your outdoor cleaning to an experienced pressure washing company that uses safe cleaning techniques and materials.
