Paving cleaning and Maintenance-ADC
How should paving be cleaned up? Is it correct that soapy water and a stiff brush are as good as almost anything else? What are the Right products to use, and what about tools? This page looks at the issues. Trust ADC for Paving cleaning.
ADC-How to Take care of your paving?
It doesn’t matter how well a pavement is laid, and no matter how much was spent on quality stuff, all pavings, from the very top-of-the-range to the not-quite-so-good, require some essential maintenance looking their best. Proper Maintenance keeps paving in prime condition: lack of care allows paving to degrade.
Even if it’s just a basic wash with soapy water, all types and forms of paving will look so much improved for it, while certain types of paving tend to need a bit more care and pay attention to ensure they always look as bright as practicable.

ADC- Dealing with weeds
Weeds are simply plants growing in an inconvenient place, and there are few places more problematic than the new paving that’s just cost you umpteen grand. Unfortunately, there are two common myths regarding weeds and paving, so let’s deal with them right at the outset.
(*1) – Myth perception – certain types of paving/surfacing are “weed-free.”
(*2) – Myth demeanor – weeds grow up through block paving.
There is no point blaming the paving for scenes such as those shown above. There is nothing intrinsically wrong with the paving or in the way it has been creat.
When a car gets dirty and covered up in traffic grime, is it the fault of the vehicle? No: we understand that the owner must have cleaned the car occasionally. And it is precisely the same with paving! It needs care and paying attention to keeping it looking Perfect. ADC will come to you for paving cleaning.
It is possible to pull out the weeds on the surface of most paved roads or scraped off using a hoe or similar Stuff. Where the roots have been sent down into the jointing, removal of the weed often brings away the sand, which should replace as soon as the surface is cleaned up. Partly-filled or empty joints are detrimental to pavement best workability.
Keep paved weeds free.
Once a paved surface is clear of weeds, keeping it weed-free for the future makes sense. Generally, regular trafficking, by foot or by wheels, will limit the ability of weeds to re-colonize an area. Still, for those areas experiencing little or no traffic, three simple anti-weed strategies are available:
*Regular brushing of weeds – this disturbs newly emerging weeds and gets them before fully establishing themselves.
*Weedkiller or fungicide.
Although Weedkiller might be some people’s first choice dissuasion strategy, I prefer pro-active to re-active treatment, which means ceasing the weeds before they settle in rather than killing them once they’ve been established.
Important of Weedkiller
However, when you use weedkillers with care, they can effectively kill off existing weeds and deter re-colonization for weeks or even months. There are also a growing number of “Weed Preventers”, which are chemicals that apply to a paved surface after cleaning.
Look for products that have been creat especially for use with paving or in gardens, rather than general herbicides, which kill everything. Those chemicals sold as satisfactory for paving or garden use tend to be slightly more carefully and target the weeds without discolouring the paving or finishing adjacent lawns or bedding plants.
Contact weedkillers work, as the name is suitable, by coming into contact with the weed and are ideal for the rapid killing of simple surface weeds. However, for the more determined weed, a systematized weedkiller is probably a better choice. These tend to take more delay (by a couple of days) to kill off the weed but do so by being actively and brought into the whole plant, not just the above-ground leaves and stems.
Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions and try to avoid washing off onto planted areas.
