One of the more popular materials for an outdoor patio is limestone. Whether the patio is made from pavers, small bricks, or a single large flagstone it is becoming more and more common to see limestone in the backyards of homes across the country. Interestingly enough, as many of these homeowners can attest to, limestone presents unique difficulties when it comes to cleaning.
Limestone is extremely porous when compared to other kinds of stone. As such, limestone stain removal can be a little tricky. You cannot exactly use the same tactics in limestone stain removal that you would if cleaning a concrete patio. Instead, use these step-by-step instructions and you should have a clean, stain-free limestone patio.
All that is left to do is allow the patio to dry. Now you can sit back and enjoy your freshly cleaned patio. I would suggest having a few friends over to have a nice little outdoor party.
Keep in mind that you should never use any type of acid to clean limestone. If you remember high school chemistry, limestone is calcium based and acids don't mix well with calcium. If you use an acid (i.e., muriatic acid) to try cleaning your limestone patio you will end up with a chemical reaction similar to the old vinegar and baking soda volcanoes, which could really damage your patio.
