In July 2010 Paver Protector was called to inspect a paver brick driveway in St. Charles, IL. The brick driveway was about 10 years old and in BAD condition.
The Fox Valley property had dense, mature tree cover which gave lots of shade to the entire property. With the shade came the mold, moss and algae on the brick paver surfaces causing a dark green and in some areas black growth. Not only unattractive, mold and moss make for a very slippery surface in the rain. Weeds were also a problem in the joints of this Saint Charles brick patio and driveway.
To clean the dirty brick pavers, Paver Protector used a combination of high pressure, hot (over 200 degree) water along with environmentally friendly cleaners where needed.
Not only was the surface deeply cleaned but so too were the joints. All weeds and moss in the joints were blown out along with the old joint sand or lack there of. Polymeric sand was installed to fill joints and to provide a wash out, weed and insect resistant solution.
The final step in the Paver Protector solution was a thorough coat of wet look brick paver sealer. This brick paver sealer will not only enhance the color of the paver driveway but will also provide a moisture resistant surface that will prevent moss and mold from returning for years to come.
