What You Need To Know About Cleaning A Paver Driveway
Paver driveways have become increasingly popular in recent years, and it's easy to see why. The best part about paver driveways is that they not only look stylish, but they're also low maintenance. Please note that means low but not no maintenance.
You need driveway washing regularly, the same way you need routine roof cleaning, although not quite as often as the latter service. Homeowners who neglect their paver driveway are in for a surprise when they find out they need repairs or replacement that could have been easily avoided.
Why Pavers Need Regular Professional Cleaning
Maybe roof cleaning seems obvious, but you're curious as to why a surface that's strong enough to handle pedestrian and vehicular traffic needs to be cleaned. Or, why isn't this included when you schedule a service like a house washing?
Your paver driveway probably won't need professional cleaning with the same frequency as your roof or siding, but it still needs cleaning as part of the maintenance because:
- Untreated pavers are porous, and that makes them more susceptible to issues like stains and mold growth. Regular cleaning helps resolve and prevent these types of problems.
- The substances that collect or grow on pavers can damage them severely over time. Having your driveway cleaned by professionals will reduce the repair frequency and prolong your driveway's lifespan.
- If you decide you do want your pavers sealed, they'll need cleaning first. Just like cleaning the surface of your home before painting or your deck before staining, it's important to start with a clean slate.
- Even once sealed, you need your paver driveway cleaned to remove dirt and debris from the top surface. Contaminants like oil or algae will still show up, but regular cleaning helps prevent them from becoming slippery hazards.
- Pressure washing helps prevent weeds from forming in the joints. If you'd like to keep your driveway surface flat and intact, weed prevention is a must.
