ago from small grains of minerals, quartz and feldspar.
settled layer upon layer at the bottom of shallow seas or lakes and
over millions of years formed solid rock.
Sandstone is a beautiful hard landscaping medium suitable for paths,
patios and even driveways. As with all external paving,
Pristine Paving can clean, restore and protect your investment.
Cleaning Indian Sandstone
Pristine Paving is experienced in the specialised cleaning of
Indian Sandstone, and believes great care should be taken when cleaning this type of paving due to the delicate type of minerals it is formed from.
Natural Sandstone should only be cleaned using water, and under no circumstances should any type of patio cleaner be used. This is due to a possible reaction between the acid and chemicals within the patio cleaner and any iron deposits within the Sandstone, which can cause staining and
colour changes to your paving.
The fine layers of sand/quartz which make up the Sandstone can absorb dirt, grime and algae deep within the paving. Non professional cleaning with a standard high pressure-jet washer should be avoided, as the angled single jet of water can penetrate the stone unevenly, leaving your cleaned paving with unsightly and unnatural markings.
This is why Pristine Paving uses the latest Mosmatic rotary cleaning equipment which ensures your Sandstone is gently cleaned to the
highest standards possible, but
without causing damage to this beautiful natural type of paving.
