Mobile How often do you clean your flags?

How often do you clean your flags/patio etc?
I am wondering if I should do autumn as well as spring because the front is looking a little dull or it could be because the weather is rubbish.

I do ours twice a year
In the spring and again late October early November after all the leaves have fallen etc
Hot water and bleach and a long handled stiff out door brush
Winter usually use wet and forget or patio magic just make it up and spray on with a watering can

I jet wash ours but I think the front could do with something more like bleach. Does that not destroy the lawn?
Also, whats best, bleach & hot water or the patio magic?
Thanks 😊

I probably jet wash ours in around March, the end of September and then about 4-5 times during the summer. in addition. We have two dogs though so I like it washed down often when the weather is warm to keep it hygienic.

I used to jet wash and use pathclear once a year but when we had our new drive done, the guys recommend this stuff called Wet and Forget. It prevents moss and lichen and cleans grubby flags etc. You just dilute, spray and leave - it works over a period of time donít expect immediate results but you only need to do it once a year.
You can buy on Amazon and check out the reviews

I thought this was a euphemism. What is a flag?!
