“Why Do I Need Paver Sealing & Cleaning?"
Pavers are prone to the effects of water, wind, and dust. As the humidity accumulates, so does the dirt and mud. The surface will start to blacken and show signs of age and weariness, causing gradual degradation to the structure.
Pavers are one of the most attractive options for a presentable driveway, walkway, and patio.
The most common problem with pavers in muggy climates like Florida is that they are prone to dirtying and will start to blacken over time; causing the stone to weaken and appear weathered and in some cases.
If algae or mold is able to grow, the situation worsens even more, and the entire surface might be needed to be stripped off and replaced.
These factors will decrease the value of your property and can leave a pretty nasty impression. This is why you definitely need professional paver cleaning and sealing.
What Problems Occur with Pavers In Tampa?
Bay Area Pressure Cleaning helps you restore your paver to its original grace and might. Our Paver Sealing services are the best you can get if you want to make sure your pavers are maintained exceptionally.
Our bio-friendly solutions bring the best out of water and creates a chemical bond to formulate a solution that will form a protective film over your pavers. Here are the steps to getting your pavers to shine like new.
Step 1. Treat Efflorescence and clean with sureClean
Ever wonder what causes that powdery, pale look on your pavers?
It’s called efflorescence and it happens naturally over time as water evaporates and leaves salt deposits behind on your surfaces.
The first and foremost step to restoring your pavers is using the proper solutions and technique to remove efflorscence. With the appropriate amount of water volume, pressure, and tools we clean your pavers and scrub out any dirt that might have been stuck in between the gaps.
We use Surebond SureClean Solution, a hydrogen peroxide based cleaner that can eliminate all the dirt or algae that has built up on your surfaces. This is a chemical solution that is entirely safe for your pavers; it won’t bleach or discolor the material or the environment around us.
In some cases where the pavers are severely damaged, paver stripping will need to be performed prior to any cleaning.
Step 2. Reinforce Sand Joints with Polymeric Sand
Using polymeric sand we reinforce sand joints and form a protective film on the pavers, which acts as future weatherproofing. These methods and solutions will not allow water vapors to be trapped inside the film.
Water vapors can weaken the bricks and stones from within, and we never want that. Our team at Bay Area Pressure Cleaning will use the best strategies to cut the possibilities of damage caused to zero and provide you with a reliable and credible service.
Our skilled personnel will ensure that your paver forms a proper seal and that you do not face any problems anywhere for several years.
Step 3. Seal with SureBond Sealer
If you are planning on cleaning and restoring your pavers, sealing is a necessary last step in the process. If the pavers are not sealed, they will give in to the weather’s effects and grow dull and weak.
When restoring pavers, we take care of and reverse any damage which has been done over time and needs to be corrected. That’s why we take special care during this last step to ensure your pavers will shine for years to come.
Are Solvent-Based Sealers Harmful?
Solvent-based sealers are concentrated solutions that can form a reflective film over the paver surface. On the other hand, solvent-based sealers are often rejected because they tend to cause bleaching to the pavers.
They also trap water vapors, and the entire film can appear cloudy, which happens when the paver surface is not properly sealed. In these cases, the paver will need to be stripped and restored. The process of stripping a solvent-based sealing is complicated and can be very expensive.
