Cleaning Outdoor Stone
Soil, salt, moss and tire tracks commonly disfigure outdoor stone
terraces, pool decks, walkways and walls. The homeowner can clean dirt
and moss from outdoor stone with a brush and a few cleaners manufactured
especially for outdoor conditions. Cleaning large areas is economical
and faster when done by a professional with appropriate equipment.
Should Stone Be Sealed
As a rule, only stone that will be exposed to soil and stains needs to
be sealed. Most stone will absorb moist stains; however, granite is
sufficiently dense that most stains will rarely penetrate the surface.
