Stone pathways are very trendy these days, but many homeowners are making the mistake of opting for them without fully realizing how much they will have to take care of them. These pathways are usually surrounded on all sides by a grassy lawn, and this lawn has a lot of moisture in it as well as other organic compounds and a wide variety of other materials. Good quality stone will last a while, but before too long there will be a layer of moss and mold covering it.
Now, this is not necessarily a bad thing. Indeed, a lot of people tend to like the way this looks as they feel like it gives a forest like vibe to your home. That being said, too much moss or mold is never a good thing, but cleaning it can be tough since the moss tends to get rooted deeply into the stone and will not go away through simple wiping or washing. Even if you manage to get some of moss or mold out of the stone, there will be a sickly green hue that remains regardless and due to this layer the moss will end returning sooner rather than later.
The only cleaning method that has the capacity and capability to get rid of moss for a longer period of time is power washing. The shines that you will get from this cleaning technique are truly a sight to behold, and they will become the new standard for cleanliness that you are going to enjoy on a regular basis. More of the power washing will come as time goes by since you will be more inclined to take part in it knowing that it has a reputation for providing results.
