Perhaps, you’ve considered using a pressure washer on your pool area. Are you wondering, “Can pressure washing damage pavers?” We have the answers.
Read on for tips about pressure washing the pavers in your swimming pool area.
Why Bother Cleaning Pool Pavers?
Aside from the idea of increasing (or maintaining) your home’s value, there are other reasons to keep your pool deck looking clean. Dirty pool pavers can hide several problems a pool owner shouldn’t ignore
For example, the natural environment of your pool creates the ideal home for mud and mold. Mold isn’t only unsightly, but it can also become slippery.
Dirt – another natural occurrence in the pool area – mixes with water and causes mud (also slippery).
Pavers bear the brunt of the elements. Sun, wind, and rain can all cause pavers to lose their color. Did you know that routine pressure washing of pavers helps maintain color?
Can You Pressure Wash Around a Pool?
Before you get down to the nitty-gritty of cleaning pool pavers, you’ll want to know more about pressure washing around your pool area. While it’s certainly possible to use a pressure washer to clean pool chairs and tables, you should take care to use a soft power wash technique.
As far as the pool deck, including your pool pavers, yes, you can use a pressure washer to remove dirt, grime, and other debris. There is a caveat!
Before you rush to start pressure washing your pavers, or any area around your pool and yard, be aware that you could cause damage.
Can Pressure Washing Damage Pavers?
The truth is, even though using a pressure washer on concrete pavers does indeed get rid of unwanted dirt and grime, using the wrong technique can cause significant damage. For example, focusing the spray on one area for too long is one mistake people often make.
Setting the water pressure too high is another error that causes damage. Using the wrong nozzles can cause damage too.
Do-it-yourself pressure washing can degrade the concrete surfaces on or around your swimming pool. Ultimately, a combination of poor technique, wrong tools, and lack of experience contribute to damaged pool pavers.
