Cleaning Paving

Reply from Jason Lock

There are a number of things to consider when looking at cleaning paving after the winter. Unfortunately there is no easy quick fix for this perennial problem, although it may be made worse by the type and age of the paving also the aspect of the situation. If North or East facing this will always be an issue, if the paving is old and has a very porus or rough surface it will be easier for algae etc to take hold and grow. It will only be kept clean by regular pressurae washng or scrubbing. There are a number of good chemicals and solutions that can be used to aid the process but unfortunmately there is no easy solution.

One option might be to look at chnaging the paving materisals to ones that would be less susceptable - maybe a smoother surface or a shingle surface if practical to do so? A word of cauition though if you go for a smoother surface make sure it will not become a slip hazard!

Hope this helps.

Hi Faeza,

Thanks for your question for the panel. I am sure Jason would love some feedback on how useful or otherwise this advice was. Do you have time to drop him a quick reply? Also he may be able to answer any other related questions you may have. Does the forum format work for you? Could it be structured any better for you? Cheers Nicola
