1. Clearing Your Condo Balcony

The best way to start cleaning your condo balcony is to clear away all of the items on it that will be getting in your way. Remove as much as you can, including furniture, balcony plants and any other outdoor accessories that may hinder your spring clean. This will give you more space to move around and clean effectively.

Consider this as an opportunity to give your condo balcony a new makeover with different designs and ideas after you finish your clean. You can rearrange your furniture, add some new decorations or install a brand new easy-to-clean balcony floor to give your outdoor sanctuary a fresh look and feel.

2. Cleaning A Condo Balcony’s Windows & Railings

Use the top-down cleaning method to start at the top of your balcony cleaning balcony and work your way downwards. This will ensure that any dirt, dust, or debris from railings or panels will fall to the ground, so you only have to clean everything once.

Your condo balcony windows or panels and their railing should be cleaned regularly as they tend to accumulate a significant amount of filth over time. If you have glass panels, we recommend using a simple glass window cleaner. To clean the outer-facing side of your balcony safely, you may need to buy an extended tool as seen in this video tutorial.

3. Sweeping, Vacuuming & Wiping


After clearing your balcony and wiping down the panels and railings, start cleaning your condo balcony floors with a quick and thorough sweep of your balcony floor.


Once you finish sweeping, follow up with a wet/dry vacuum to get to the hard to reach areas. This will help you get rid of any remaining dust and debris that may be hidden in the corners, nooks and crannies.


For the stains and dirt that can’t be swept or vacuumed away, do a quick wipe down of your surfaces. A neat trick for rust stains is to use dish detergent that’s rubbed into the stain with a sponge and left to sit for an hour or so before washing it away with warm water. You can also use dish detergent in a similar way for leaf stains and even bird poop!

Cleaning Synthetic Grass

Synthetic grass tiles use a unique drainage system to make cleanup easy. Clean the grass using a hose and spray down the artificial fibers. If the grass looks flattened afterwards, we recommend grooming the grass with a handled broom against its natural grain.

If you notice any damage on your current balcony planks, tiles or grass chipped, it may be time to install new balcony flooring. Take a look through our selection of balcony tiles and planks!

4. Power Washing Or Rinsing Your Balcony

This last step is optional, and only required if you need to rinse away any remaining cleaning chemical residue or power washing a stubborn stain that simply won’t wipe away.

Power washing is an effective last resort method of deep cleaning your balcony to get rid of any stubborn stains. It’s important to find the right pressure and angle when power washing to avoid damaging your balcony tiles or glass windows. Start with a lower pressure and work your way up slowly for stubborn stains - keep the nozzle tilted instead of pointing it down so that the water hits your balcony floor at an angle.
