in order to remove leaves, sand soil and such like materials from your resin bound paving, it can be swept clean with a stiff brush. Hosing the resin surface down with clean water, will also clean the paving. It is common that regular brushing and washing is the only maintenance required for resin bound surfacing.
Staining can occur from tannings from debris if they are not cleaned away and lay on the resin surface for prolonged periods of time. Most stubborn stains and grime elements can be removed with a pressure washer (maximum 150 bar rating) A fan type lance should be used and it should be sprayed minimum 200mm above the resin bound surface. Only cold water should be used on resin surfacing.
If any chewing gum were to stick to your resin surface, it can be easily removed with freeze spray. Each piece of chewing gum should be hardened with the freeze spray and then gently scraped off with a suitable scraper.
Resin surfacing is weed resistant and is treated with weed growth prior to the installation of the resin bound. However, it is not fully guaranteed to be weed free. This is because of seed dispersal from animals and by weather. In the event that weeds do start to grow, they can be pulled out by hand, ensuring the root is pulled out with the weed. In the event the weed is deep rooted, they can be killed off with a mild weed killer. If you only have strong weed killer please make sure you water it down significantly. Strong weed killers that aren’t watered down could discolour the surface.
Brake fluid is extremely corrosive to resin bound in the even that the break fluid lands on your paving, remove it straight away with warm water.
