Paving Newcastle Upon Tyne - Cleaning Block Paving
Paving Newcastle upon Tyne way, and everywhere for that matter, requires a good amount of regular maintenance and cleaning. This is true from the moment it's laid to even years later. But with proper maintenance and regular cleaning, you'll keep your concrete block paving driveway in good condition for years to come.
So, how do you properly maintain and clean your concrete block paved driveway? Well, that really depends on how long you've had it for. If you've just had it laid, the first few weeks of maintenance are likely to be more challenging for you. That's because after you've had a paving Newcastle company lay the driveway, the joints between the block paving will be quite porous. This means that the sediments within, such as the jointing sands, will be more susceptible to being affected by wet weather or water from, say, washing your car. Due to the sands not being quite set, the water has the chance of flushing out jointing sands. So it is extremely important to top up joints with more jointing sand. This ensures a sturdy foundation is maintained, meaning your driveway has a good, long and healthy life. From this point on, maintenance doesn't need to be too intensive and can even become an annual thing during springtime. However, it should be noted that you could still perform major damage to your driveway if you don't know what you're doing when it comes to cleaning it properly. Therefore, it can be wise to hire a paving North East based company to perform the annual cleaning for you.
