How Often Should You Clean & Seal Your Pavers?
A custom hardscape built with your choice of pavers makes a perfect addition to your outdoor living space. However, it is important to clean and seal your pavers once a year in order to keep them looking brand-new. Cleaning your pavers will clear off any weeds, dirt, and grime that has built up since it has been installed. Sealing your pavers annually will keep your hardscape protected from the harsh weather conditions here in Florida. Sealant will also help to protect your pavers from any damage.
Cleaning your pavers annually will keep them clear of dirt and grime.
Because your hardscape is outside, it most likely has built up a lot of dirt and grime that you might not even notice. Many pavers are also made out of porous materials, meaning that staining can occur and can be hard to remove. During a yearly paver cleaning and sealing service, your hardscape will be pressure washed and thoroughly cleaned; this will help to remove any dirt and grime as well as get rid of stains from grease, mud, bird droppings, and more. Also, if there are any cracks between your pavers where weeds can grow through, cleaning your pavers will remove them. Annually cleaning your pavers can even prevent mold from building up on your hardscape.
Having clean and sealed pavers can improve your curb appeal and increase your property value.
Sealing your pavers annually will protect them from harsh weather conditions.
The weather conditions here in Florida can be quite harsh, particularly during the summer months. Excessive exposure to UV rays can cause the pavers of your hardscape to fade. The final step of any hardscape cleaning and sealing service is to apply a sealant to your clean pavers; sealing your pavers once a year can help to protect the surface of your hardscape from the elements. This will prevent your pavers from fading over time and keep your hardscape looking as good as new for many years. Also, during the rainy season in Florida, weeds can grow aggressively, especially when you have cracks between your pavers. Annually sealing your pavers prevents them from loosening, which can help to keep weeds from popping through any cracks in your hardscape.

Besides protecting your hardscape from constant exposure to harsh weather conditions, sealing your pavers is also responsible for keeping your hardscape safe from additional signs of wear and tear. A layer of sealant acts as a protective barrier that prevents cracks and chips from forming on your hardscape. Because sealing your pavers protects them from this damage, it also significantly extends the life of your hardscape by preventing it from deteriorating over time. This will save you money in costly repairs over the long term. By sealing your pavers annually, you can help to protect your hardscape from damage and keep it looking like it was just installed.
