Spring is at your door Montreal!
The cold, the snow, the salt, the ice, the winds, are all finally coming to an end. The question is are you prepared for spring? Considering all the harsh winter conditions here in Montreal that could affect your paving stones’ quality, giving yourself a treat by doing what’s best for your investment, which would be to clean and protect it may be best solution to stop the deterioration process.
“We have seen that salt greatly damages pavers in a period as short as three years of age after the installation of a new pave uni in the Montreal and Laval area” as experience showed Henry Gallegos, founder of Pave Uni Montreal, who offers cleaning services for pave uni on patios, walkways and driveways. “After a while, salt builds up can disintegrates pavers if it is not properly manufactured and maintained. Care is critical before during and after winter and spring seasons in order to ensure your driveways, walkways and patios are maintained and keep their beauty for years to come.”
When temperature gets warmer, everyone in Montreal gets so excited summer is coming that we tend to forget that summer has some harsh features such as the sun rays, the dryness, the warmth. All those put together can greatly affect your paving stones, hence why before it actually hit it, you could benefit from protecting your Pavé Uni.
A high pressure cleaning for your pave uni done by a professional during springtime is crucial, since the salt continues to cause degradation even after the ice or snow has melted therefore would be the number 1 step we would recommend. It would be the perfect way to eliminate the residues from the past few months, embellish and get your paving stones ready to show off now that it will be visible, uncovered of ice and snow. Once all residues are removed, protecting your pavement with a high quality sealer such as the one Pave-Uni Montreal uses, would be the next step in your paving stone spring cleaning, and would give the best protection against UV rays and other elements that could hurt your paving stone during the warm season.
