Not only flower beds, flowers as well as lawns need their care, but also garden furniture and garden paths should be cleaned regularly. Paving stones have the disadvantage that they not only quickly accept dirt but grows in the interstices of the paving stones fast weeds and moss, and this does not look good. If you want to clean your paving stones in an environmentally friendly manner, and you want to sell mosses and algae, then there are environmentally friendly methods for this.
What I need (materials)
- 10 liters of water
- Stable large cooking pot
- Wooden spoon for stirring
- Calcined soda
- Or, 20 grams of potassium permanganate
Clean paving stones with hot soda water - Instructions in individual steps
- When using soda, heat approximately 10 liters of water in a cooking pot and bring to a boil. Then pour the hot water, which is in the cooking pot, in a stable bucket and then add 100 grams of soda.
- You should pour the mixture immediately onto the paving stones and then distribute evenly with a puller. The procedure should be repeated until the entire paving stones are covered with the mix.
Clean natural stone and concrete with potassium permanganate
If the paving stone made of natural stone such as limestone, marble or granite, you must use a unique natural stone cleaner such as potassium permanganate to clean the stereo surface. Paving stones made of natural stone form a timeless elegance for their subsoil and are also weather-resistant and stand for years.
- First, you must heat 10 liters of water up to just before the boiling point. Then pour the hot water into a bucket and add 20 grams of potassium permanganate. Then mix well the powder with a wooden spoon.
- The liquid is then poured over the paving stones. After purification of the natural stone, water residues should not be left on the rock surface.
- The seal forms a surface sealant.
- In the respective methods, green coverings, moss, and algae are gently removed.
TIPS: FROM TIME TO TIME, SPECIAL WHITE SPOTS ARE FORMED ON THE PAVING STONES, WHICH MUST THEN BE REMOVED URGENTLY. THIS MEANS THAT EG BIRD DROPPINGS WITH HOT WATER, AND A COARSE BRUSH CAN BE QUICKLY REMOVED. MORE CAREFUL IS THE REMOVAL OF OIL SPOTS. IF THE OIL SPOTS ARE STILL FRESH, YOU CAN BIND THEM WITH SAND AND THEN REMOVE THEM WITH A GREASE SOLVENT. OLDER OIL STAINS CAN BE DETECTED WELL WITH A DISHWASHER TAB, WHICH IS DISSOLVED IN A LITTLE WATER.
If you clean the pavers at regular intervals (at least twice a year), you can prevent the weeds from spreading and creating extreme contamination.
