Your pavers should be seen as an investment in your home and as such, you should keep your pavers maintained and cleaned so they look just as good as the day they were laid.
Spring and Summer are the best times to clean and seal your pavers. Frequent sweeping and occasional washing of your pavers reduces the effects of dirt and grime.

They may begin to grow fungus and algae and require additional cleaning methods.
