Block Paving Cleaners
Forget about special products for cleaning paving slabs – all you really need is some water and a form of mild, gentle soap such as dishwashing liquid or laundry detergent. Whether you use hot water or cold depends on your preferences, and the type of soap you’re using. Both hot and cold water work equally well, but if you’re using a powdered soap, hot water will dissolve the powder more thoroughly. Using a brush, gently scrub the slabs with the soapy solution, and rinse with clean water.
You will, however, want to keep an eye out for products that could cause damage to blocking paving. Any soap that warns against use on limestone or marble should be avoided, and, if you’ve got concrete paving, cleaning products that contain acid aren’t a good idea. You may think that you need something strong to make a difference to paving slabs, but really a regular household soap can work just fine. Always test your solution on a small area of your paving first to check there is no damage and wear rubber or gardening gloves to protect your hands.
With these tips, you should be able to get your block paving looking as smart as ever with little effort – giving you more time to relax!
