After such a marvellous summer, people all over the country will be exhausted from enjoying the great outdoors. Alas, all good things must eventually come to an end, and Bosch Lawn & Garden recommends a bit of forward thinking now, to save you time and hassle later.

On the decks

Aside from mowing the lawn and keeping hedges at bay, outside spaces such as decking must also be considered for the post-summer tidy.

  • Firstly, check for damaged planks or joists by pushing a screwdriver into the timber to see how far in it will go. You may find that you have to replace one or two weak pieces.
  • Give the planks a good clean using a pressure washer and a stiff brush. Bosch’s AQT 33-10 is perfect for the task.
  • Let the area dry before applying a few coats of an all-in-one stain and preservative.

Patio party

Bosch also has a pressure washer ideal for sprucing up the patio.

  • Use a low pressure setting to clean the weeds out from between your paving slabs, being careful not to disturb the grouting.
  • On the slabs themselves, switch to a higher pressure setting. The AQT 35-12 Plus has a convenient 3 in 1 nozzle so you can switch from low pressure to high pressure setting with just one twist. Cleaning with a patio cleaner, such as the one provided with the AQT 35-12 Plus will make it a breeze. Alernatively, use a stiff brush.

  • Once the surface is clean, apply a weed preventer – ensure you choose products that have been specifically developed for use with paving or in gardens, rather than a general herbicide.

The car wash

All those summertime trips to the country or the beach can take their toll on your car – covering it in sand, dust and even mud if you’re unlucky.

The AQT 37-13 Plus can help sort all of that. It comes with a fixed brush for scrubbing dirt from your car, much easier than cleaning by hand. The 90o nozzle provided with the ‘Plus‘ version can get right under the wheel arch to remove all that grime and dirt with ease.

Waxing your car after cleaning will also keep your paint looking at it’s best for longer, and while you’re at it, why not give the inside a good clean?

Riding dirty

If you’ve caught the cycling bug, it doesn’t matter if you ride your bike around the inner city or through winding country lanes, it will need a clean once in a while.

  • Prop your bike up and use a very low pressure setting to rinse the frame.
  • Wash down the wheels and frame by hand with soapy water, and finish by drying with two different rags/towels – one for the frame and wheels, and one for the oily, moving parts.
  • After that, it is important to brush, wipe and degrease the chain and gears, before re-oiling.

Perfect for a variety of outdoor tasks, all Bosch high pressure washers come fully assembled, ready to use straight out of the box, and no matter your storage space, each model offers power, mobility and performance for effortless cleaning.
