Tips on how to clean your Natural Stone

PavingIn order to keep your stone paving in good condition it is important that you do not let your paving get overrun with weeds or moss as it is very difficult to get stone paving back to its best condition if these have been allowed to settle in. When cleaning your stone paving you must be careful in which products and techniques that you decide to use.

A common stain found on paving slabs would be concrete, and if this is not removed quickly it is often difficult to remove. You may require a chemical product to remove the stains but you must be careful with which product you use as some of them can damage certain types of stone paving, so make sure that you read the manufacturer’s instructions before use.

You may also look to use a power washer or hose to try remove stains from your stone paving but again using these may result in damage of your paving stones depending on which type of stone it is, sometimes the best solution may be a bucket of soapy water.
