Many people believe that pressure washing your patio is the best way to clean their pavers. The average homeowner needs to know that pressure washing can actually cause permanent damage to most pavers. Normal wear and tear leaves behind layers of dirt that build up on the surface of the pavers. Over time, this dirt can be forced down into the pores of the concrete.
Preserve The Paver
Pressure washing your patio can remove the surface dirt and stains in some cases. Excessive water pressure may remove the deeper dirt but you will remove some of the paver surface along with it. You can also permanently scar the surface of the paver with streaks and lines. It’s important to realize that every time you use a power washer you are opening up more pores for the dirt and grime to accumulate in. And that begins a cycle: the more often you use a power washer, the more often you will have to repeat the process to maintain the same clean, bright finish. And each time, you are eroding a small amount of the paver surface.
There Is A Better Way
The Paver Savers Certified Restoration Specialists use powerful, concentrated paver cleaners that push the cleaner deep inside the cement pores of the pavers. The cleaners are acid free, quick rinsing, and environmentally friendly. Then, using the right nozzle and proper pressure, they can thoroughly clean the pavers without any damage.
Once the pavers are completely clean, they should be sealed to maintain their beauty and keep them stain free. Sealing will also protect them from any damage caused by de-icing products, freeze-thaw cycles and acid rain.
