Paver Surface Cleaning
At Elegant Estates, we’re more than a company that offers paver cleaning. In 1999 we started out as a landscape maintenance firm that transitioned into the paving stone and tile installation business. This was done once we realized that many contractors were installing them incorrectly. We have combined everything we know about the concrete paver industry into a one-stop-shop for our customers. Our clients have enjoyed using us for their stone design & installation on through to cleaning and maintenance of their hardscaped area. Today, we focus mainly on keeping our past installation cleaned and looking as beautiful as the day we installed them!
Understanding how the entire interlocking concrete paver system works gives us the unique ability to provide the proper ongoing care for your hardscape as well as the flexibility to correctly repair, restore and protect them. As a one-stop-shop for your stonework, this is a great value-added for our clients! Being located in Lansing, NY provides us the ability to service clients that live in and around the cities or towns of Ithaca, Lansing, Aurora, Skaneateles, Cortland, Auburn, and Binghamton, NY.
– Our Cleaning Equipment –
When we show up on your site to clean your paver or concrete project, give just one glance at our equipment and you will realize how serious we are about the cleaning process. Our paver, asphalt, and concrete cleaning process involves mechanically deep steam cleaning pavers using specialized equipment that won’t damage the surface of the paver or affect the underlying sand setting bed that your pavers are resting on. Other companies may offer a high-pressure cold water wash using a wand that can expose the aggregate of your pavers and wash out the sand setting bed leaving voids below your pavers. If this is done you will eventually see minor settlement throughout your paver surface and it will require future repair work.
Our power washing equipment is custom-built for our specific needs. It enables us to:
- regulate water pressure
- Use steam / hot water / cold water depending on your cleaning requirements
- Custom blend detergents (if needed)
- Vac the dirty water as washing is completed (also depending on your needs)
- Recycle water during your wash to reduce water consumption
With 400 gallons of onboard water capacity, most projects can be completed without requiring the use of a lot of household water. This is especially welcomed for our clients who draw their water from wells. Our wash equipment allows us to be environmentally friendly and comply with EPA regulations. Failure of contractors to comply puts the homeowner at risk for governmental fines if they are found in violation of the Clean Water Act.
Our surface cleaners have multiple high-speed spinning wash bars that eliminate any “tiger striping” that you get with all traditional pressure wash contractors using hand wands. Having the ability to vac the gray water also is a benefit for our clients as there is not an abundance of water running into unwanted areas. The ability to create steam on demand, when required, in order to deal with the most stubborn cleaning tasks is not a problem. Pre-treating and post-treating are done for some of the following:
- Fertilizer stains
- Rust Stains
- Oil Stains
- Grease Stains
- Wine Stains
