Cleaning Outdoor Tiles

Outdoor tiles are constantly exposed to the elements, accumulating dirt, grime, and stubborn stains that can be tough to remove. If you’re like most, outdoor tile cleaning is lucky to occur twice a year. We don’t blame you— without the right products, the cleaning process can be time-consuming and physically demanding. 

The best way to clean outdoor tiles is to use a pressure washer coupled with a specially made tile cleaner. We recommend using a pressure washer with a built-in tank, such as the Nilfisk® MC 2C-120/520 XT AU Pressure Washer. And if you’re looking for a multi-purpose washer that can be used indoors and outdoors, our top pick is the MotorScrubber® MSJET3AUS Battery Scrubber Starter Kit

The Nilfisk MC 2C is designed for those who need increased cleaning efficiency, ergonomics and durability for superior everyday cleaning. Equipped with a 4-in-1 lance, 15-metre steel reinforced high-pressure hose, detachable foam cannon and 2.5-litre tank, it’s guaranteed to make tile cleaning easy. We also recommend the MC 2C pressure washer for cleaning your home exterior, car, truck and boat.

The MotorScrubber JET3 is your on-demand solution to speed up cleaning everywhere. By releasing the perfect amount of liquid alongside the unstoppable scrubbing action from the 360rpm extreme torque motor, the JET3 delivers unbeatable results on all surfaces.

Pressure washers with built-in tanks allow you to dilute cleaning liquids to enhance the cleaning efficiency. They also use smaller volumes of water compared to ordinary hoses—saving water and time. If you’re wondering how to clean outdoor tiles, then you need to use a high quality tile cleaner. Tile cleaners help break down stains and remove organic matter. There are a multitude of cleaners available, however, many of them contain harsh chemicals which are harmful to the environment. Hanleys stocks biodegradable tile cleaners specially formulated for removing stubborn, ingrained dirt from difficult to clean tiles.

Citrasolve 7000 is a multipurpose cleaner that will remove grease and grime from a multitude of surfaces and is a particularly good degreaser.

A proprietary blend of specialised low foaming surfactants, water softening agents, anti-redeposition agents and natural orange oil as solvent booster and grease cutter. A neutral, more gentle detergent.

Once Off is a superior strength, heavy-duty tile cleaner designed for difficult to clean ceramic, porcelain and quarry tiles. Use for periodical restorational cleaning, with great care ONLY. It’s NOT suited to marble, sandstone and many other surface types given its alkaline properties. Once Off and similar tile cleaning products like Tornado are on the highly alkaline end of the pH scale, sitting at 13 to 14. Use with care and refer to the product details - you can find these as a download on each of the product pages.

A squeegee is really handy for the quick drying of a wet surface. Use it to push away the excess water. Twin it with an aluminium handle for ease of use.

The Oates Household Deck Scrub Brush with Handle is a cost effective complete solution for household outdoor, decking and patio cleaning. It comes with a handle and features stiff durable bristles for scrubbing. If you've already got a handle or are chasing a tile-specific brush head, we recommend the Oates® 164845 Floor Scrub Brush Head 30cm.

An alternative to pressure washers is a popular machine for scrubbing tiles: the Hako Wizard HM10503212 44cm version or 34cm version. This machine is also offered for daily rental from our rental fleet. Talk to Jenny or Warren in our workshop for more info. - Try before you buy! 

It's always a good time to give your outdoor tiles a refresh, and pressure washing with a biodegradable tile cleaner is the way to go.
