QUESTION:

We have fireclay tiles on our yard and some have become quite black from the weather.
I wash with bleach to remove the slippery coating during the winter bit the black marks remain.
I was wondering is there a product available to bring back their nice , warm colour.

ANSWER:

We have a very popular cleaner for paving called “All In One Outdoor
Cleaner” apply neat on the the black spot area and allow to soak for 1
hour during this time agitate the surface with a hard bristle deck
brush. Then wash surface with clean water and allow to dry. It may not
be possible to remove the black spots completely so once clean and dry
we recommend to seal with our “STONTEX PAVER PLUS” this easy to
apply two coat treatment will enhance the original colour of your
paving and should greatly reduce / disguise the black marks entirely
as well as protecting the paving from further staining.
