How to Clean Pavers: Weekly Cleaning

There are a few things you can to do manage and maintain the beauty of your pavers if you follow a few simple guidelines. At least once a week, you should sweep over the paver surface to prevent any dirt and debris that may lead to discoloration or buildup in the joints. Never leave any spills or stains unattended that will result in attracting unwanted critters. It is always a good idea to hose down and use a mild solution on your pavers should any spills occur. Try using kitty litter over a difficult stain, leave it overnight and sweep it up in the morning.

Other Paver Maintenance Tips:

It’s recommended to use a mild solution on your pavers should any spills occur. A diluted mixture of detergent and water will address the problem area. Be sure before using any chemicals on your pavers to check with the manufacturer first to prevent any damage. You also want to check and make sure it is ok to use rock salt when ice or snow becomes a factor.

Spring Maintenance Tips

Buying your own home can be one of the biggest accomplishments in your life. You want to make sure to take the necessary steps to keep your home looking beautiful from the first day you purchase your home. We recommend the following tips to keep your home well maintained and clean during the year.

Spring Cleaning

This is a great way to deep clean your home once a year and keep the clutter down. Once a year, during the spring, go throughout your home, and decide what you want to keep. Decide what is useful, and get rid or donate the rest of the items. Organize and label the items to reduce clutter. Make a list for the things you may want to donate or even schedule a yard sale on a weekend to sell things that are just taking up space in your home.

Power/Pressure Washing

A great way to maintain the exterior beauty of your home is to have a yearly power or pressure washing of your home. Pressure washing can clean away pollen that is a factor every spring. It can cause visual stains, and also cause allergens. Envirowash, Inc. provides excellent, reliable pressure washing services in the Richmond and Virginia Beach areas.

Hot vs Cold Water

Its all about chemistry and physics.

Hot water has faster molecules than cold water; therefore, is much more thorough and efficient than cold water when rinsing off detergents from vinyl, wood, glass and virtually any other surface. Cold water tends to leave detergents behind and when the surface drys there is visual evidence in the form of a chaulky looking film. Additionally, grease and many other solvent based products are virtually melted away using hot water. Cold water merely pushes the grease from one spot to another making it useless for the removal of grease and oil.
