GENERAL Maintenance

Natural Stone Products.

Pressure washing natural stone is not recommended as it may damage the joint pointing. Pressure washing may also damage the face of reconstituted stone and concrete paving.

We recommend only using Lithofin cleaners on our natural stone paving. The use of any other cleaners may invalidate any warranty offered. Always try warm soapy water and a stiff broom as a first option.

 

Concrete Products

Never use de-icing chemicals or salt during freezing winter conditions. The use can affect both the durability and the aesthetics of the paving. Use a plastic shovel or stiff brush to remove snow and ice. In extremely slippery conditions pure 'grit sand' with no salt can be applied to obtain grip.

The use of pressure washers should be avoided as they can damage the face of the paving if concentrated on an area or if the water jet is too strongly pressured.

We recommend only using Lithofin cleaners on our concrete paving. The use of any other cleaners may invalidate any warranty offered. Always try warm soapy water and a stiff broom as a first option.

 

M-Coat® Products.

General cleaning of M-Coat® paving should be undertaken with a mop and bucket of soapy water as per a kitchen floor. Proprietary non abrasive kitchen floor cleaning and sterilising products may be used to clean or sanitise the paving.

Specific spillages of strong coloured products should be wiped off the paving immediately with a damp cloth to prevent any permanent damage.

 

Sealing of Paving

We recommend only using Lithofin sealers on our natural stone paving. The use of any other sealers may invalidate any warranty offered.
