As you know, pavers bricks are one of the best materials for outdoor spaces and patios. They are easy to install, durable, and long-lasting. However, if you don't take care of your pavers, they can start to look old and dirty in no time at all. In this blog, we'll cover everything from cleaning methods to sealing techniques that will help keep your pavers looking great for years to come!
Use a power washer to your paver bricks from time to time
In order to keep your pavers bricks looking their best, you'll need to use a power washer from time to time. Power washers come in different sizes and shapes, but they all work the same: they blast water at high pressure onto the surface of whatever you're cleaning. They can be used for many things—cleaning cars, washing windows, removing stains from grout—but using them on your pavers will help keep them looking pristine.
When using a power washer on pavers bricks (or anything else), it's important that you choose the right tool for the job. If you have an especially large area of bricks or stones that need cleaning, then it might be worth investing in a bigger unit with more power than usual; if all you're worried about is getting rid of a few small stains here and there then something smaller should do just fine. You may also want to think about whether or not having more options available would be important when deciding what type of model fits best into your lifestyle; most models come with attachments that let users add different attachments depending on their needs at any given moment in time
Once you've chosen which model works best for your situation (and budget!), setting up shouldn't take long before everything gets underway! Once finished with this initial step though we recommend continuing reading so as not to miss out on any important details regarding proper care techniques
Check for any cracks and replace broken pieces
The first thing to do is check for cracks and replace broken pieces. It's also important not to let weeds grow, as they can make the pavers look gray or yellow and even affect their health. If you see any weed growth around your pavers bricks, remove it immediately with a hand weeder or spray nozzle attached to your hose.
Don't let weeds grow
A common reason for pavers bricks to appear cracked is the growth of weeds. When weeds grow in the gaps between pavers, they can hinder water drainage, become a fire hazard and make your driveway look unsightly. So how do you prevent this?
Don't let weeds grow:
- Keep your yard looking tidy by removing any long grass and trimming back any hedges that may be encroaching on the edges of your driveway or path. This will stop any soil or grasses from growing up between the pavers and allow rainwater to drain away easily rather than getting trapped beneath them.
- If it's too late for that, try using a weed killer that contains glyphosate. This can kill off all types of plant life including weeds without affecting other plants nearby – although it will take several weeks before results are visible so don't expect instant results!
Sealing your pavers bricks, removing stains, and keeping them clean will help them last longer
- Sealing pavers bricks: Sealants contain a variety of ingredients that protect the surface of the pavers from water and other elements. Some sealants also add color to the paver while protecting it. You should seal your pavers every two to four years, depending on how much traffic they get, the type of sealant used, and geographic location.
- Removing stains: When you clean your pavers, make sure that you choose a cleaning product that's safe for use on concrete surfaces; most cleaning products have warnings about not using them on concrete surfaces or similar materials.
As you can see, there are many ways to keep your pavers looking great. If you're ready to get started caring for your paver installation, give us a call today!
