If you have brick pavers on your driveway or walkway, then you know how attractive and durable they can be. Over time, however, they can become stained and faded. To restore them to their original condition, it is necessary to clean and seal them. In this article, we will show you how to do that.
First, you will need to gather the following supplies: a paver cleaner, polymeric sand, a paver sealer, a broom, and a garden hose. You can find these items at your local hardware store or home improvement center.
Next, you will need to sweep your brick pavers to remove any dirt or debris. Be sure to pressure wash the pavers thoroughly to remove any moss build up. Hiring a professional pressure washing company can help if the task is too difficult.
Once your brick pavers are clean and dry, you can apply the polymeric sand. Again, be sure to follow the instructions on the label. Make sure to sweep any excess sand by sweeping or using a leaf blower. Be careful not to remove too much as the sand is what helps keep the brick pavers in place once the sealer hardens. Sand should not be visible as it could cause the sealer to break when you drive over it or walk over it. If the sealer breaks, it will let moister under the substrate causing mildew growth and possibly ruin the entire project later on.
After the pavers have had plenty of time to dry, we recommend waiting a day if you live in an area with high humidity. In some arease it is perfectly ok to seal your pavers a few hours after washing and sanding. Sealing will be the easiest part, make sure to use a water based sealer as it will not have any toxic fumes. It is also recommended to use gloves as the sealer can be very sticky. I personally use a 2 gallon pump up sprayer to apply the sealer. Make sure not to spray the walls as they will leave an obvious discoloration. You can use plastic sheeting to cover walls or use a spray shield. You can use a roller to back roll the sealer if it looks uneven. Remember that less is more in this situation and you can always apply more sealer after it has dried.
Once you have applied sealer to all your pavers, make sure to let it dry at least on day. Make arrangements for your groceries or park your vehical out on the street if your neighborhood allows it.
We hope that this article has shown you how to clean and seal your brick pavers. By following these instructions, you can keep your pavers looking like new for years to come. If you have any questions or need help with the process, be sure to contact a professional paver cleaning company in your area.
