When you have a lovely landscaping addition like brick pavers, you want to make them last! Caring for your brick pavers properly can ensure that they not only last, but age well and evenly. Brick pavers don’t require a ton of maintenance or care, but with a few simple tricks, you can enjoy them for many years to come! At Unlimited Property Solutions, we have a few tips for you when it comes to caring for your brick pavers.
First, keep them clean! While you don’t need to be on your hands and knees scrubbing your brick pavers, a good sweeping on a regular basis can do a lot to extend their longevity. Regular sweeping moves dirt off of the surface, which enables more even wear. Additionally, it can allow you to see where the spaces in between your pavers might need attention, which prevents shifting of your brick pavers. If you find any spaces, you might want to sweep some masonry sand over your brick pavers in order to fill in the spaces.
Second, don’t forget to properly prepare your pavers before applying sealant. A simple spraying down with a hose can reveal any grease spots that you might want to get rid of before applying a protective masonry sealant.
Finally, carefully seal your pavers on a regular basis. A good sealant can help your brick pavers stay clean, resist sun damage, and prevent other damage.
