Since hardscapes include various features and materials, the cleaning process used will vary. For example, the techniques and materials used to clean natural stone features will be different from ones that you use to clean a concrete wall or brick paving. If you have a retaining wall with stone veneer, that will require different treatment as will a stone fireplace or fire pit.
It would be best if you kept all these aspects in view while handling the maintenance of the hardscapes on your property. The other things that you should focus on include:
- Purchase different types of cleaning products for different surfaces.
- While you are pressure washing retaining walls, boundary walls, garden steps for the driveway pavers at etc. it is crucial that you use the right amount of pressure. Excess pressure can damage certain features permanently, which will result in additional expenses for you.
- Once you are done with cleaning the paver stones, you should consider sanding the joints and sealing the surfaces. The seal coat forms a protective layer on the paved and concrete areas, making them less vulnerable to stains and deterioration from exposure to the elements.
- While you are cleaning the hardscape, if you find that there is any damage or deterioration to any of the elements, it is necessary that you fix these problems before carrying out regular cleaning tasks.
