Pool Paver Cleaning
Have you ever wondered why your pool pavers feel excessively slippery? Sure, pavers get slick when they are wet but sometimes they can get super slippery if they are dirty. When it rains, the most dangerous time to drive on the road is within the first half hour after it starts to rain because this is when the oil and grease in the road gets lifted up from the asphalt but has not yet been washed away by excessive rainfall.
The same goes for your pool pavers. When they get wet, the water lifts the oil and grease up to the surface. The difference between rain and pool water though is that rain may be constant – pool water may not eventually wash away this lifted oil and grease. A lot of people don’t think of pool paver cleaning as a safety measure but in this sense, it most certainly is.
But there are a number of other reasons why you might want to have your pool pavers professionally cleaned. Maybe you just want to spruce up your outdoor areas for summer guests. Or maybe you want your pool pavers cleaned as part of a larger restoration project. No matter what your intentions are, we want you to know that you can call on us here at Century Painting for deep, thorough and professional pool paver cleaning.
Pool Paver Sealing
For the best pool paver cleaning and sealing in Charlotte NC, there is nobody better to hire than us. We understand that sealing the pavers on your pool deck is a delicate operation and needs to be handled with the utmost care. Why? Here are just a few things that can go wrong when you hire a careless contractor to clean and seal your pool pavers:
- Sand in the Filter –Your paver sealing job may entail re-sanding. Re-sanding involves spreading sand granules over the surface of your pavers. Careless pavers will get these sand granules in your pool which can damage the filter.
- Poor Sealing Adhesion – Pool paver sealing is a bit more laborious than sealing dry surface areas. That’s because you need to be extra careful that the surface doesn’t get wet after cleaning. Applying sealant when the deck is even a little bit moist in some areas can compromise the whole project and cause the new sealant to form a weak adhesion to the pavers.
- Inadequate Cleaning – Cleaning is a very important part of the sealing process. Getting mold, algae and mildew out from the deep pores of your pool pavers is essential. If these contaminants are still present when the new sealant goes on, they can severely limit the lifespan of the new sealant coat.
