Restoration and Maintenance
Proper sealing of your surface means greater protection, longer life, and easier cleaning and maintenance.
However, pavers, stone and concrete will age over time and can often be the one feature that is not in keeping with the high standards on the rest of your property. When this is the case, a deep clean and re-seal can make a dramatic difference in the overall appearance as evidenced by our BEFORE and AFTER gallery.
Periodic maintenance agreements are available to ensure that your surfaces continue to be presented in the best manner possible.
Surfaces treated by The Sealer Guy can become much more resistant to common stains, as indicated in the following table:
|Stain Tested||Rinsing With Cold Water After 20 Minutes||Rinsing With Cold Water After 4 Hours|
|Used engine oil||Slight stain||Stain|
|Hot Coffee||Very slight stain||Very slight stain|
|Household ammonia||No residual stain||No residual stain|
|Methanol||No residual stain||No residual stain|
|Household Bleach (chlorine)||No residual stain||No residual stain|
|Red Wine||Slight stain||Slight stain|
|Hot Tea||Very slight stain||Very slight stain|
|Jiff||Very slight stain||Very slight stain|
|After washing with Enviro Cleaner from Chemetall and brush, then hosed off with clean water|
|Used engine oil||Extremely slight stain|
|Red Wine||Stain completely removed|
The longer the offensive material remains on the surface of the concrete tile the more difficult it is to remove. Wash off stain immediately using Enviro Cleaner from Chemetall and rinse thoroughly with copious amounts of cold water. If cleaning with a pressure washer virtually complete stain removal is achieved. Organic leaf and Kwila stains can be treated with household bleach.
