4 Tips for Cleaning Your Gazebo

Is your gazebo sitting in the garden looking miserable and dirty? Are you actively avoiding taking guests there because it hasn’t had a clean in a while?

Here are 4 tips to get your gazebo sparkling again in no time.

Get the broom out first

Your first port of call will be getting an outdoor broom, and getting into all the corners and ceilings to remove any cobwebs that have sprung up since your last clean. Then use the broom to sweep down any walls and benches for dust and dirt, and the finally, the floor.

Rent a high pressure water cleaner

If your gazebo is quite dirty, after the broom treatment, a high pressure water cleaner can do wonders. Make sure that any paintwork is not peeling off (sand down first, if so), and then you go nuts with blasting the high pressure cleaner to remove dirt and dust on all surfaces.

Scrubbing the really dirty spots

After your high pressure clean, you will probably notice a few spots that are still grubby. Getting in there with a sponge, some household cleaner, and a bit of elbow grease will get rid of those really dirty patches. Use a bucket filled with water and cleaning agent, and a non-abrasive sponge (except on permitted surfaces) and get to scrubbing!

Once it’s clean, make your gazebo easier to maintain

If you’re not big on cleaning – and let’s face it, who is? – then once your gazebo is clean this time, you can put measures in place so that you can leave it a little while longer between cleans next time, and even make it easier for yourself.

The big one is coating any surfaces in a gloss or high gloss coat, whether it’s paint or polyurethane. The smooth, shiny surface deflects dirt and dust, and makes it much easier to wipe down.

Installing plastic blinds that you keep down when your gazebo is not in use will also protect your structure from blown in dirt and dust, keeping it cleaner.

Like any other room in your house, if not cleaned regularly, your gazebo will become harder to clean. Leave it for a few years and you might have to enlist the help of the experts! By following these tips you can ensure that your gazebo stays in good order, ready and waiting to be used and enjoyed by both your family as well as your guests.
