In the United States alone, there are enough paver surfaces to build an eight foot wide pathway all the way to the moon! Paver walkways and patios provide a great outdoor oasis in any property. In the moist Northeast Ohio climate, it is essential to take the proper steps to clean and protect your paver surfaces. Protecting pavers is a complex and detailed process and All Star Power Cleaning is the authority in Northeast Ohio, utilizing training and certification, supplier partnerships, and state of the art processes and materials.
The first step is a thorough cleaning of the entire surface. Application of a detergent will kill any algae and moss as well as help inhibit the future germination of weeds through the joints. A high pressure cleaning will clean the pores of the pavers. Next the joints are washed out completely bare.
During the next step of the process, a high grade polymeric sand is swept into the joints, the sand is evenly distributed and blown from the surface. We will blow the sand off the surface and wet the sand allowing it to cure in the joints. Per customer preference we can supply tan or dark grey sand. This adds the first layer of durability.
During the final step, we apply a joint stabilizing sealer. This sealer will penetrate and seal the top of the pavers as well as penetrate within the polymeric sand, giving an added layer of durability and protection. This is not a one size fits all, and the process will be dictated on if the customer wishes to darken and enhance or add a sheen to the surface.
