THE BEST METHODS OF CLEANING PAVEMENTS
Prepare paving slabs for cleaning
Before cleaning the cobblestones, free up as much space as possible, remove garden furniture and other equipment that may be on it, which may limit the possibility of complete cleaning.
After you’ve cleaned everything up, rinse the pavers with a hose. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND the use of high-pressure car washers, as this can lead to the washing out of the filler in the inter-tile joints. Watering in this case removes surface dirt and makes it possible to clean the pavement tiles more thoroughly.
Types of cleaning solutions
- ORDINARY SOAP AND WATER – SOAP SOLUTION
To make a soapy solution, you can mix dishwashing liquid or hand soap with water.
- REMEDIES FOR CLEANING COBAVEMENTS
On the Internet, you can find special solutions for cleaning pavement tiles. We recommend carefully studying the composition and instructions for use – choose products with the least amount of aggressive chemicals. When it comes to your outdoor living space, using fewer chemicals is not only better for your health, but when used on pavers, there is less chance of discoloring your pavers.
- WHITE VINEGAR AND WATER
This is an excellent natural way of cleaning paving stones. However, always use only white vinegar because dark vinegar can damage the color of your pavers.
Also, it’s important to note that for best results, allow the vinegar and water to soak into the stained paver for about one hour before using soap and water to gently scrub away the stains.
Cleaning your patio pavers will ensure you have a beautiful outdoor yard for years to come. You no longer have to worry about the changing seasons taking a toll on your pavers. As soon as summer arrives, you can clean your pavers as efficiently as possible.
