When it comes to garden landscaping, natural stone paving is a popular choice for renovating gardens and patio areas. While there are many advantages to natural stone, both practically and aesthetically, porcelain paving also offers up a host of benefits for your property.
One of the main reasons why porcelain paving is such a great choice is due to its low maintenance upkeep. Natural stone requires sealing to ensure the quality of the slabs remains beautiful for years to come, whereas porcelain does not need to be sealed.
Porcelain paving is also resistant to moss, mould and algae which is a major advantage when the seasons change and leaves and debris begin to accumulate on the surface of paving. With some occasional sweeping using a soft-bristle brush, porcelain tiles will come out clean in no time, without unwanted moss build up.
If your porcelain paving requires more of a deep clean from time to time, prepare a bucket of warm soapy water and use a damp cloth to wipe the surface of the slabs down to get rid of marks and dirt that are more persistent.
On the occasion that your paving ends up extremely dirty, we recommend the use of a pressure washer on a low setting suitable for paving use. However, it is advisable to exercise caution at all times with a pressure washer to avoid risk of permanent damage to the slabs.
Porcelain paving is guaranteed to last for many years after installation when cared for properly. It is not a high maintenance garden landscaping product but still requires some general upkeep to hold its high quality appearance.
