What are the advantages of the Stonewizard Eco-Brush Patio Cleaner versus the Traditional Power Washer?
About 20 years ago a revolutionary new way to clean our outdoor surfaces arrived on the scene, and suddenly everyone was power-washing everything in sight! Then about 15 years ago Indian Sandstone patios and block-paved driveways also started to become popular in UK households.
Ever since then, power-washing has been the pre-eminent method to clean the patio or driveway in the UK. Despite the well-known and much-experienced shortfalls of the power washer, it has been the beloved pastime of many a Sunday morning DIY-er!

To own a stone floor is a lovely thing. If you are lucky enough to have a home with stone floors, or if you are about to install them you are very fortunate. They are a serious lifetime purchase, as they will outlive you! Their natural qualities will develop over the years as the surface takes on its own patina, through wear.
Some owners of stone floors, however, don’t share the above views, and would gladly rip them up and replace them with something they feel is less demanding!
We’ve heard this occasionally at Stoneworld, when people have come to us, exasperated that their stone floor is dull, and it never looks properly clean. These reports are generally from people who have bought properties with existing stone floors, and we meet them when they come to us asking for advice on how to rejuvenate the floors.
Cleaning a stone floor is easy if you have the right product, but many people get very frustrated with the poor results they are achieving whilst they are unwittingly using unsuitable cleaning products!
When first installed, granite and quartz worktops look beautifully shiny and reflective, adding real glamour to any kitchen.
After a few days use, a lot of owners wonder just how they are ever going to get that initial gleam back again, as their wonderful granite worktop that they were so proud of has gone dull and smeary in a very short space of time!
Most people don’t actually know how to look after this type of surface. It’s easy when you know how!
