How to Keep Concrete Patio Pavers Looking Like New

Posted by ResistMist on January 15th, 2020

Pavers are a great way to turn a bland yard into a more attractive and organized space, where you can spend quality time.

Although, pavers are durable and require little maintenance, however, you still have to make sure to clean them on a regular basis to keep them in good condition.

Being an outdoor space, pavers are subject to the elements of mold, algae, dirt, grease and other stains, which can create a muddled or mossy look. Pavers that are used in the driveway can suffer from stubborn oil stains that need a deep cleaning with a suitable paver stain remover.

To keep your pavers looking good as new, follow these simple steps:

  • Wash or sweep your pavers regularly. Regular cleaning will prevent grime and dirt from accumulating on the surface. If there is mud developed it is best to wash it away.
  • Once the majority of the dirt has been swept or shoveled away, spend some time inspecting the pavers. You may notice areas that have cracked or others where there are stains. They need deeper repair and cleaning.
  • For more stubborn stains like mold stains, use a highly effective paver stain remover or cleaner. They are scientifically made and clean deep within the surface.
  • If you see stains and ingrained dirt marks, apply an environmentally friendly cleaner to the paved area. Avoid detergents and bleach that may fade or change the color of your pavers. Do a spot clean in the area first to ensure that the cleaner is suitable for your particular pavers.

Repair and Maintenance 

Proper maintenance requires regular repair. Any cracks or holes need to be filled up to prevent the cracks from becoming larger or complex. If you find weeds developed in any cracks, make sure to remove them immediately. Then, clean the cracks or holes accumulated with dirt, residuals or loose stones. When done, fill them up with suitable grouting. Smooth it well and allow drying. At last, apply a sealer for better protection.


Pavers are a beautiful addition to any outdoor space. Whether your pavers are used as a walkway through your garden, a patio, or driveway, your pavers are bound to lose their luster over time. Luckily, you can restore your pavers with a good paver stain remover or cleaner.
