Cleaning garden stone tiles

danielstephensSeptember 23, 2012

Hi there,

I've got stone tiles in my garden and they need to be cleaned. A few years ago I made the mistake of cleaning them with a pressure washer. That did work but it also cleaned out all the sand between the tiles and removed the protective layer of the stones. The process used up a lot of water and I had to replace all the sand that went between the tiles.

I wanted to know if there was something I could use to clean the tiles and then protect them after? Many thanks for taking the time to read this post.

I guess it would depend to some extent on the kind of stone tiles you have and what they are stained with, but I would probably try trisodium phosphate first and if the results weren't satisfactory go to muriatic acid. Both are pretty standard for cleaning masonry.
