Check for loose bricks; they can becom a tripping hazard.  You can replace them by lifting them out and relaying them easily. Larger areas of loose slabs are best repaired by a professional - give us a call to help.

Keep your patio swept and thoroughly clean it every three months

Removing Weeds From the Gaps

Most patios paved with bricks will grow weeds in the spaces between.  Use a jet washer and blow them out then follow up with a treatment of weed killer.

Removing Mold and Algae from your patio

Black mold and green algae not only discolor patios, but it also makes it slippery when wet.

The quickest way of cleaning a patio is to use a power washer. Using a power washer with detergent works best.

When cleaning a patio, make sure you use safety clothing such as goggles and gloves.

After power washing, be sure to resand and fill in the gaps between the bricks or slab. Sprinkle ordinary sand over the surface then brush it into the gaps. The sand will not only make your patio look much neater, but also cover the weed killer and help suppress further growth.
