The best way to preserve the integrity and beauty of your surface is with proper maintenance. The surface should be regularly blown off or washed. In addition, proper planning and routine maintenance will extend the life of your surface.
In the unlikely event that you encounter a tough stain or are having trouble removing a stain, please call the office to have a technician visit you to assist you with the proper cleaning chemical or tips. There is no charge for this service.
