Cleaning Paving stones
Most Paving stones can be subject to algae build up that comes with the rain. Some paving is a little more susceptible than others. There are a number of ways to combat algae on paving stones, pressure washing is one. If the algae is bad applying bleach to the effected area before cleaning is a good idea, this will loosen the algae so it is easier to clean off with the pressure washer. Once the algae has been cleaned off the stone, and the stone has dried, a patio sealant can be applied to prevent future algae build up. The sealant should be re applied annually as it will rub off with time.
Using acid to clean stones, sulphuric acid is the ingredient of most patio acid cleaners, if your stones have acquired tougher stains such as cement, sulphuric acid should be able to remove it. It is important to note however the acid can bite into and damage the softer stones such as York stone so a more diluted mixture should be an idea and washing the mixture off more swiftly might be an idea. The acid can dis colour lime stones also so care is needed is you are using sulphuric acid on lime stone.
