CARING FOR YOUR PAVERS

Prevention is better than cure

  • Sweep regularly with a stiff bristled broom to keep pavers free from debris.
  • For maximum protection we suggest pavers are sealed after installation with a penetrating sealer. (Please check with a reputable sealing company for advice)
  • Re-seal pavers as required taking special care in heavy wear areas and salt-water locations.
  • During construction, cover the paved areas to protect against damage.
  • Protect your pavers against possible staining from mortar, oxides, cement and rust.
  • Do not use acid to clean pavers.
  • Do not use high pressure cleaning apparatus to clean pavers.
  • Attempt to clean stain before it hardens or dries up in all cases.
  • If a stain occurs, follow these simple steps:

1. Assess type of stain carefully before taking action (incorrect assessment of stain can cause the stainto be more difficult to remove)

2. If stain cannot be accurately assessed, conduct a trial process on a small portion of stained area to determine most appropriate action

3. Utilise the guide below on some stain removal solutions
