The process for cleaning and sealing block paving is best done in stages. Firstly, any oil stains can be pre-treated with oil remover and any moss growing on the blocks is treated with a potent bio degradable anti-fungicide. When the pre-treatments have taken effect the block paving is cleaned using a high powered, industrial surface cleaner.
The block paving is then left to dry for a few days to ensure the surface is completely free of moisture prior to re-sanding with kiln dried sand and if required or necessary, sealing with one or two coats of block paving sealer. Block paving sealers generally come in two forms; either solvent based acrylic or solvent free. After surveying your property, we will recommend the most appropriate solution for you.
