The Patio Black Spot Company Pty Ltd was started to solve a specific problem: How do you remove those hideous black spots from your patios and pathways?

Over the years the perceived wisdom has been that the stronger the cleaner and the harder the pressure, the more chance you had of removing black spots from your stone. Nothing could be further than the truth.

Acid-based cleaners and endless pressure washing will permanently damage your stone. This approach will cause short and long term damage to plants in the surrounding area.

Sandstone is sedimentary; it cures in layers and splits in layers. The vibration caused by pressure washing causes these layers to delaminate, resulting in destroying the surface and breaking the stone.

Patio Black Spot Remover gently removes patio black spots, completely restores the colour to garden stonework, of any age, and prevents the return of patio black spot. Our products are biodegradable and acid free. Our expertise in stone led us to develop this unique system and it’s why top garden centres in the UK have chosen to stock our pioneering brand.

Based in the UK, due to strong demand from the Australian market, The Patio Black Spot Removal Company LTD expanded its operation, with the creation of The Patio Black Spot Removal Company PTY LTD, in 2015.  With its strategically based manufacturing facility in Sydney NSW, orders are dispatched and delivered within 5-7 days.
