Our Process

As the premier power washing company in Northern New Jersey, we specialize in concrete pavers and are committed to beautifying our clients’ homes.

Just as hardwood floors need occasional sanding and waxing, patios, driveways and walkways need the same type of maintenance to keep them protected and looking beautiful all year round.

The Paver Cleaning Process:

  1. First, the entire paver surface is inspected for weeds, stains, settling, shifting, etc. After the initial inspection, any necessary stain removers will be used. All efflorescence (a white haze that may appear on the surface of pavers, similar to the look of salt staining) will be properly removed as well.
  2. For structural issues, the affected area of pavers will be removed. The base stone is then re-stabilized, and the pavers are re-installed and secured in place where necessary.
  3. Following all repairs, the pavers are pretreated with SureClean detergent to help enhance colors and remove organic staining; then they’re power washed.
  4. Next, PolySweep polymeric sand is swept into the joints, followed by passing a vibratory roller over the entire installation to ensure the joints are fully packed with sand. Next any remaining sand is swept away leaving an 1/8 inch reveal between the top of the paver or chamfer line and the top of the sand. Any excess sand and dust are then blown off the surface and the sand is activated with water.
  5. Next, we apply the sealer of your choice.
  6. For SEK Surebond Sealers, first is a flood coat, which penetrates the joints and hardens when cured. This prevents sand loss, weed growth and ants from taking up residence. Second, a finish coat is applied along the top of the stones, giving the pavers their finished appearance. When sealing travertine or similar stones, one coat of sealer and an anti-slip agent are rolled over the surface.
  7. For Splash Proof, only one heavy coat is required.
