After fixing any sagging areas look for individual pavers that are sitting higher or lower than the surrounding pavers. A paver that sits higher can often be leveled by using a rubber mallet to force it into its proper position. If its too high or doesnt move you may have to remove it so you can remove some of the sand thats below the paver. If it sits low youll have to remove it to add sand until its level. To remove the paver you can purchase a paver removal tool or you can use a small pry bar to loosen the paver and lift it out of its space being careful not to crack or chip the paver. Its a good idea to pressure wash the surface on a yearly basis. Pressure Washing cleans the surface of your pavers and also remove much of the organic material growing between the pavers. Removing the organic material reduces the amount of bugs living in your paver area and helps keep the pavers stable.
A solution of bleach powder and water in a proportion of 1:10 can also be used for cleaning pavers. Apply the solution over the pavers with a brush and then scrub. Remember that bleach can cause discoloration. Therefore try it on one of the pavers in a corner and see the result before you start cleaning. For removing paint from pavers paint thinner can be applied on the pavers and then scrape it out with a rag carefully. The most difficult job is to remove rust stains from pavers. When the normal methods do not work use an appropriate chemical with the help of a professional. After cleaning pavers allow it to dry.
Concrete pavers are a popular outdoor flooring surface. Concrete paving is very porous and stains easily. Its high porosity makes it particularly prone to salt efflorescence. Due to the use of high quality invisible impregnating ingredients in the sealing agent sealed pavers are protected for a long period of time. The durability of pavers is increased four-fold by protecting them. Pavers are the elements of the house that suffer maximum exposure to extreme weather pollution dirt grease and load conditions and therefore they stand a higher risk of being damaged.
