Dangers of using brick acid to clean paving, what are the alternatives?
Brick Acid is great for cleaning limescale off bricks but it is awful for many natural stone.
A Step by step guide to applying EASYRevive
A step by step guide on how to finish, rejuvenate and seal a driveway.
Acid causes damage to natural stone, even when sealed! Bird droppings, leaves and berries are the main offenders
Sealers offer great protection for natural and concrete paving surfaces for items which get spilt or dropped onto them however exposure to acidic chemicals occuring in fruits, leaves or bird droppings will eventually burn through any sealer and mark the paving.
Notes of Caution for applying EASYSeal in hot weather
Whilst the majority of our sealers can be used in temperatures of up to 30 degrees celcius, it's easy to forget that the stone can get significantly hotter than that particularly if they are a darker shade of colour.
