Presenting a clean sidewalk not only proves inviting to houseguests, it improves the look and value of your home. What use is it to have well-manicured lawns and luscious plants, only to have dirty, stained sidewalks leading to your front door? As with taking care of yourself by wearing clothing in good repair, well-coiffed hair, and a sparkling smile, maintaining clean walkways around your home shows that you care about your home. Perhaps you live in a neighborhood that has a home owner's association, and they may require you to keep your walkways clean. You can follow these guidelines to clean the sidewalks around your home, and improve the look of your property:
If you've stubborn stains, mix a solution of one part bleach to three parts water, and use a hard bristled brush to scour the area. Allow the solution to stand for twenty minutes, then rinse. Once your sidewalk is clean and dry, you may choose to apply a sealer to guard against further stains.
