That new paver patio or walkway looks great today, but over time regular wear, dirt and weeds take their toll on the blocks. Regular maintenance keeps your outdoor paver area looking fine when preventing harm, like splitting and shifting of the person pavers. Cleaning, sealing and weed control are the chief constituents of a paver maintenance program. The upfront work of maintaining the scoop saves you the challenging work of replacing the bricks down the road.
Fill the cracks between pavers with polymeric sand, which hardens when moistened. This exceptional sand helps maintain the scoop in place and prevents weeds from growing between the bricks.
Sweep debris and dirt in the pavers. Eliminating nature’s debris in the bricks keeps them tidy and lessens the danger of staining into the brick surface. You also reduce the opportunity of slipping on wet leaves.
Wash away grime by spraying the pavers with a hose. Avoid directing the water spray right into the joints, as it may disrupt the mud, particularly in the event that you use regular sand.
Scrub stains using a mild detergent mixed with water. Use a wire brush to remove the stain. Test out the wire brush and detergent at a concealed area to check for harm to the pavers before using it in an extremely visible area. Wash away the detergent completely after brushing.
Seal the pavers every two or three years using a sealant designed for pavers. Use the sealant evenly based on the product’s directions. Sealing protects the pavers from ecological factors and prevents stains from placing into the bricks.
