When it comes to aesthetics, travertine pavers are and have been a recognizably used product.  A prime example of the history of this material was shown by the use by both Ancient Greece and Rome.  Travertine was used in everything from buildings, temples, aqueducts, amphitheaters, etc.  In today’s day and age, travertine is used in a plethora of indoor and outdoor projects.   Besides that it is very durable, one of its greatest features is that it can be used just about anywhere to beautify any area of interest.

When you keep your pavers in tip-top shape, you preserve your investment and enhance the beauty of your property. Here are some specific steps you can take to maintain your pavers.

Sweep Regularly

Use a sturdy broom to sweep away dirt and debris on your pavers. Do this on a regular basis especially during Fall time when leaves tend to accumulate.

Wash Off Dirt

Washing your pavers can help to remove any additional dirt or grime after sweeping. You can use a garden hose to wash your pavers but do not to direct water into the joints as this can displace the sand.

Clean Stains Right Away

When you notice stains, clean them right away before they set in. If you don’t clean them immediately, they can be very difficult to clean.

Remove Leaves

Do not allow leaves and other organic matter to build up on your patio, driveway, or walkway. Sweep or blow away leaves right away as some leaves can permanently stain your pavers.

Leave Moss Alone

If you have moss growing in the cracks, the roots go into the sand. Resist the urge to pull them. This is may sound counterintuitive, however, when you remove the moss, the sand will come out. This means you may have to replace the sand and, ultimately, the moss will return.

Clean and Seal Pavers

We recommend getting your pavers professionally cleaned and sealed.
