Cleaning pavers should not be put off. The surfaces of the pavers are porous and quickly absorb oil; the longer the oil remains the deeper it sets making the stain permanent. Get oil removers from a local hardware store but make sure it is not acidic. Acidic chemicals can react with the salt of the pavers and damage it. Weeds growing in the pavers are a nuisance especially when they force cracks through the tiles themselves! Sealing pavers mostly avoid this but sometimes if the weeds are not plucked for a long time they can be dislodged from their slots. Apply a weed-killer to get good results. If the pavers are not matt finish applying a stone polish can prevent weeds from growing profusely along with providing protection. If you really want some greenery in between your pavers scatter short rooting grass or herb seeds evenly along the joints.
Further since sealing pavers keeps them protected from formation of microorganisms they look well maintained and clean because of which the appearance of not only your paver but also the entire landscape is enhanced. Sealing pavers substantially deepens the color of pavers which gives it a crisp elegant look which further provides aesthetic appeal to your home.

Be it a pool deck driveway patio or walkway your pavers should be maintained on a regular basis to keep them looking as beautiful as the day they were installed. First do a visual inspection for sagging areas where water will collect and pool. These areas are often caused by water from a hose or rain washing earth foundation material and sand into a hollow space below the paver foundation. Once pooling is noticeable these sagging areas often widen quickly do to the increase of water draining in these areas. Its important for the hollow to be filled and stabilized before leveling the pavers otherwise you can be performing the same task next year. To fix this situation can be tricky. First remove the sagging pavers find the hollow and fill it with a foundation material. Next you want to tamp or pack the foundation material to within two inches of the bottom of the existing pavers. Fill the remaining 2 inches with sand and tamp it level with the bottom of the existing pavers and replace the removed pavers.
