Your paver patio should be the focal point of your landscape design you should keep it looking clean and pristine looking all year now. Since winter weather is on its way, it the perfect time to perform some well needed seasonal maintenance on your paver patio. Even though paver patios are a durable home feature, they require maintenance to prevent water and structural damage. Luckily there a few simple ways to care for your paver patio so that you can enjoy it all year long. Sweep and Rinse
When starting to care for your paver patio, it is critical to sweep and removes all debris from the surface. The last thing you want is it to rain and then having wet dirt and debris staining your paver patio. After you have swept and removed all of the debris away, you should wash your paver patio with a host. Rinsing your patio will effectively remove all of the stuck on dirt that may have accumulated. Depending on your type of paver patio, pressure washing might damage the structure.
If you have any built-in or stubborn stains on your patio, your best solution is to scrub it away. All you need is a mixture of warm water and mild dish detergent and a sponge. Just dip the sponge into the soapy water and scrub away until the stain is gone. Another effective solution to remove stains is to use a wire brush. Once you remove all of the stains, all you have to do is rinse your patio off with water.
One of the best ways to keep your patio looking new is applying a sealer every two to three years. Make sure to apply sealant when your patio is dry and clean. Sealing your patio is an effective way to prevent dirt from accumulating and penetrating the structure.
