The new paver walkways look great when just installed by Oasis projects. Over time though, they will get dammaged by regular wear, dirt and weeds. Regular maintenance keeps your outdoor paver area looking nice while preventing damage, like cracking and shifting of the individual pavers. Cleaning, sealing and weed control are necessary for paver maintenance.
Cleaning the Pavers:
Sweep the pavers regularly to remove any surface debris, including dirt, grass clippings and leaves.
Apply baking soda, corn starch or dry sand to any oil or grease stains on the brick pavers. Allow the dry ingredient to absorb the oil or grease for about one hour, sweeping the material once after 30 minutes, then sweep up the dry ingredient.
Saturate the oil and grease stains, along with any other large stains, with a household degreaser and let sit for about 30 minutes.
Spray the entire brick paver surface with a garden hose.
Scrub the entire paved surface with the hot, soapy water and a scrub brush.
