Tech Spec 5 – Cleaning, Sealing and Jointing
When properly installed, interlocking concrete pavements have very low maintenance and provide an attractive surface for decades. Yet, like all other pavements, they can become exposed to dirt, stains and wear. This webinar discusses the steps to ensure the durability of interlocking concrete pavements and to help restore their original appearance. You’ll learn about:
• Removing stains
• Overall cleaning
• Professional cleaning methods
• Efflorescence and its removal
• Types of stabilizers
• Installation, functional and structural considerations
• Types of sealers for concrete pavers and sealing procedures
• Safety considerations
The webinar is an elective for the ICPI Residential Paver Specialist Course and ICPI Commercial Paver Specialist Course, as well as one hour of continuing education for renewal of the Certified Concrete Paver Installer credential.
