Many homeowners delight in how versatile concrete pavers are to create patios, driveways, and walkways around their homes. However, without proper care and sealing, these paving stones can quickly lose their attractive appearance or become jostled out of place by encroaching on roots and plants.
In order to preserve the desired look of your outdoor spaces and ensure the pavers you’ve invested in reach their maximum life expectancy, it’s important to enlist the help of a professional pressure washing service to clean and seal your concrete pavers with a protective layer of sealant.

Benefits of Paver Sealing
As with most outdoor structures, water damage is the main assailant on concrete pavers. Unsealed concrete pavers can succumb to wear and tear over time due to water damage, losing their original color and even shifting out of place as the joint sand between each stone crumbles. When correctly applied, sealants can help prevent water damage to your meticulously installed patios and walkways.
Sealants also help protect against UV damage from the sun’s rays, which can cause fading and color loss after just a single season in unshielded patios and walkways.
Is Paver Cleaning Important?
Concrete pavers should be properly cleaned by a professional pressure washing service before any sealant is applied. Paver cleaning prevents the sealant from locking in dirt and stains and also helps get rid of moss, mold, mildew, and other obstructions and contaminants on and in between the stones.
The rigors of changing weather patterns and temperatures wreak havoc on paver-laid walkways and patios, causing the stones to lose their original color and appearance.
Pressure washing followed by a professionally-applied sealant can work to restore your paving stones’ color, even enhancing the vibrancy beyond its original hue. When you have a walkway, driveway, or patio made of concrete pavers, paver restoration is an important aspect of maintaining the value of your home.
