Dirt does not tend to tick on them stubbornly and hence a simple wiping of the surface or pressure washing if stains are too greasy gets rid of any unwanted deposited. In fact the water board recommends sealing concrete pavers in order to save water. By sealing a paver you are essentially putting a shield that protects it from being damaged due to various factors such as reaction with acid and fungal infestations. Further it prevents sand and cement in the joints from washing out due to heavy rains and storms thus preventing loosening of stones. The hazardous effects of freezing and thawing that tend to ruin most of the pavers is eliminated due to sealing. Sealing pavers protects them under all weathers and high traffic loads. As a result your paver is well preserved.
