Cleaning & maintaining a stained & sealed (rather than a painted) patio cover or gazebo is very important so that the structure holds up well over the years & lasts a long time. There are different ways & methods to clean or preserve a shade structure; some of these depend on the type of material used to create the patio. These include wood, concrete, tile, stone, brick & many more.
A good option to start with is usually used on wood patios, & it uses a weakened solution of TSP (trisodium phosphate) which you can purchase from any paint shop. Add a little bit of household washing-up liquid & then first try it on a sample area, once you see how it reacts then use it on the rest of the patio.
The next option is to use a weak solution of citric acid to help brighten up old grayed timbers. However, do not use chlorine based bleaches because even though they will rid your patio of algae & mildew, they will also break down the lignin in the deck timber.
After you have cleaned your patio & brightened it up as wanted, then it is time for the sealing. Use a waterproof patio sealer because it will repel water & make the patio last longer. To apply the sealer, use a pad with a little reservoir & brush the sealer on. Make sure to evenly coat it all over the patio surface & then let it dry. After about an hour or so of drying time, buff the surface to remove wet excess.
