Maintaining your new block paving driveway

The majority of our customers who have block paved driveway’s fail to understand the needed maintenance to keep block paving in the best possible condition.

As a homeowner, you will have spent a reasonable sum of money to have your block paving in Ashford Kent installed. Therefore, it is a sensible idea to maintain your new paving. leaving the driveway until it is covered in weeds and grime is not the best approach; instead take pre-emptive action.

Before you clean your block paved driveway, first treat the area with a weed killer to take care of any weeds. next consider, treating the area with a fungicidal wash to eradicate any lichen, algae and moss.

Should weeds be present, it is essential they are treated first otherwise when removing weeds you will only be taking the heads off, leaving behind the roots.

This generally means that a few weeks later, they will grow back even stronger than ever. Cleaning the block paving with a high pressure water jet can be very effective in getting rid of all weeds and grime, making the block paving look as good as new.

The dangers of pressure washing your block paving in Ashford Kent

But remember, block paving must only be pressure cleaned occasionally as continuous use can weaken the sand bed on which the block paving rests, ultimately causing the blocks to sink.

This is why it is important to seal block paving immediately after pressure washing with a driveway sealant product such as Thompsons one coat. This means that in future when the block paving is cleaned the blocks only require a hosing down, and not a forceful pressure washing.
