The following information will assist you in maintaining it’s beautiful appearance for many
years to come.

ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
The resin bound surface should be regularly swept clean, removing leaves and detritus
material in order to prevent moss growth. If the surface has been contaminated with chewing
gum it is best removed by freezing and chipping off as necessary.
Ensure bird droppings are removed as soon as possible by flushing with water.

VEGETATION
Any moss or weed growth that occurs should be treated using an appropriate herbicide. Any
ingrained algal growth can be removed and the colour of the original resin bond surface
restored by applying a strong bleach solution. The bleach solution however should be applied
in accordance with manufacturers guidelines and local environmental constraints. After
application with the bleach the surface must be rinsed well with clean water. Styleseal Ltd can
also supply a specialist cleaner restorer on request.

Please note that staining may occur from tanning if surfaces are not kept clean from leaf
debris, conkers etc.

Remove berries, fruit etc as soon as possible to ensure slip resistance is maintained.

NORMAL/ABNORMAL USE
The resin bound surface has been designed for normal pedestrian use, therefore protection
should be provided wherever possible against abnormal usage.

Abnormal usage applies to heavy objects such as skips, these should not be dragged across
the surface, the surface must be protected in this instance to avoid any impact damage,
staining etc.

Light coloured aggregate blends may show tyre marks, removal by pressure washing as
detailed below may be required.

GENERAL CLEANING
General cleaning of the surface can be carried out by cold pressure washing up to a maximum
150 bar rating to remove dirt and grime. The water should be applied using a fan type lance
which should be kept 200mm above the installed surface. Care should be taken however to
prevent damage to the surface with excessive water pressure. If the surface is contaminated
with any cement or concrete marks these can be removed using dilute hydrochloric acid or a
proprietary cement remover. In all cases we recommend that a small area is carried out first to
confirm suitability.

Oil stains should be removed as soon as possible use a mild detergent as required to prevent
possible staining.

DAMAGE REPAIR
Should the surface be damaged please call us in the first instance for advice.
