The Benefits of Brick Paver Cleaning and Sealing During the Summertime

Now that the Chicago area is well into the summer season, it is a great time to consider applying a brick sealer. Many potential clients ask me why they should consider a paver sealing on their existing brick paver surfaces. Protection is the key word here. For years people have painted the outside of our home for protection. It is equally important to protect your brick pavers with a brick sealer. I have listed the numerous benefits of using a brick paver sealer.

• Brick sealing provides a protective coating over the brick surface. This will help to prevent dirt and stains from penetrating into the paver and make it easier to perform a brick cleaning in the future.

• Paver Sealer provides protection from the suns destructive UV rays. Brick sealing helps to prevent that dull bleached – out look that occurs when pavers have not been protected with a paver sealer.

• Brick Sealing enhances the color of the brick surface. A paver sealer will bring back the bricks beautiful gray, brown, buff and red colors that have dulled over the years.

• Brick paver sealer helps to seal in the joint stabilization sand. This will help to seal out weeds and ants, while also sealing the joint sand in place helping to maintain a more stable walking surface.

Keep in mind that the dog days of summer in Chicago translate to hot dry weather and the best time to apply a brick sealer. It is important for the pavers to be fully dried out before any sealer can be applied. A professionally applied brick sealing will provide long lasting protection from the elements and potential spills while beautifying your existing brick surface for years to come.
