5 Tips for Proper Care of Travertine Hardscapes

 

No matter where you live, the weather can damage travertine hardscapes, particularly if you do not take the time to properly care for them. Following a few easy strategies to protect your pavers can add years to their longevity while maintaining their appeal. Here are five tips you can use to safeguard the integrity of your pavers.

 

  1. Seal Your Pavers

While you might be handy enough to seal your own pavers, it is usually wiser to hire a professional concrete contractor to do it. Even though this style of paver resists moisture well, it is always a good idea to waterproof them so you have full protection against the elements. This is particularly a good idea if you live in harsher climates that are more inclined to excessive water or snowfall – or if your pavers are next to a pool. The splashing and excessive moisture can slowly damage your pavers over the years. Make sure you follow the manufactures instructions regarding the frequency of using a sealer for your pavers – or just ask an expert!

 

  1. Clean Regularly

Cleaning your patio, driveway, or walkway on a regular basis is essential to any landscape care, but it also keeps your pavers looking attractive while also protecting their structural integrity. Be sure to use a broom with soft bristles to sweep the pavers free of debris about once a week, you can also wash them with a gentle cleaner made specifically for natural stone. This keeps their color as vibrant as the day they were installed. It is also a good idea to clean your pavers after storms, this is also for safety reasons to keep the areas around your home clear of hazards.

 

  1. Remove Grass, Moss, and Weeds

The growth of grass, moss, and weeds are inevitable but you must take steps to clear them regularly as part of a healthy landscape routine. If you do not maintain these items between the pavers it can destroy the integrity of the patio, walkway, or driveway. It is very important not to allow roots of any kind to grow between pavers, it is a good idea to check them periodically for this type of growth. While minor growth won’t do too much harm, it does indicate the presence of dirt and grime between your pavers. Eventually, as the weeds and other items grow it causes the pavers to shift and could possibly form cracks – which you do not want. So remove signs of growth immediately to prevent this from happening.

 

  1. Remove Early Signs of Mildew and Mold

Mold and mildew aren’t very likely to damage your pavers, but if allowed to flourish mildew and mold will make it much more difficult to clean your pavers. If you remove these items while they are still in their early stages it simplifies the cleaning process, and reduces the risk of harming the pavers.

 

  1. Choose Patio Furniture Carefully

Although pavers are extremely durable, be sure to choose patio furniture that does not have sharp edges or bottoms. Moving this type of furniture regularly across the stone surface of the paver will cause scratching and stress on the block. Instead opt for furniture that is easy to lift and move about.
