Removing Stains from Your Stone Paving

 Maintain your paving and keep it looking like new by cleaning it regularly and removing stains. Whether you have laid limestone pavingpaving, stone paving, paving slabs, stone paving or some other paving material, they are all likely to get stains on them from time to time. However, there are ways to remove common stains and growths such as oil spills and weeds.


Cleaning dirt from paving:

When it comes to the general cleaning of your paving, it is best to give your paving a good scrubbing with a stiff brush accompanied by mild detergent and hot water.


If you wish to use a power hose, you should observe the following:

  • Test hose on a small area first.
  • The hose should be held approximately at a 30 degree angle (no more than 30 degrees) on a medium pressure setting.
  • Any jointing that is removed should be replaced.

These tips can help you decide which option is best for you.

Of course DIY installations will reduce the cost of the project but the result can be disappointing. According to the weight of the paving stones it can be very difficult to install them in the right position.

If you want your paving to have a more sophisticated look, mortar is the best solution but it requires a higher level of skill.
