    Is the stripper safe for vegetation?

      Prewet and rinse any over spray right away to avoid burning the leaves.

    I used Behr premium wet look sealer in July. I have observed that I have a white film (see attached). How do I correct this?

    You recommended A-1 Solvent to get the white off my patio pavers. I cannot find this on your website. Please let me know if this is available.

    I have thin bricks applied to concrete patio nine years ago. Sealed them at that time. This week I have cleaned the bricks with white vinegar. Also where the sprinkler hits and caused hard water marks I also cleaned with Clorox and simple green. Finally felt satisfied to seal the bricks now. The bricks look good from one direction only. From the other direction they look white. I do not like it at all. Do you have any suggestions to retreat this?

    I sprayed rid a rust on a large portion of my driveway. The pavers are now significantly lighter than the others. What can I do to restore the color?

    Several years ago on another project when trying bring "life" to pavers, I got some whiting on the pavers. I now have moved to a different residence. How can I prevent that from happening again as I I want to improve the looks of pavers at new location?

    Does the brick paver surface become more slippery when wet after sealer application ? Can you and any anti slip substance if yes ?

    Here’s a pc of my patio with brick pavers. I do not know what product the man used to seal the aggregate/bricks. Bricks turned milky white. We have had a lot of rain this spring. I do not have a power washer. Any recommendations to correct this would be greatly appreciated.
    thanks,

      You can try the A-1 Solvent. Just apply and let dry and see if that restores the shine and removes the white.

    I used Round Up (extended use Round up) on weeds in my pavers. I know that I should not have, but I didn't know better. Now I have white marks all over the pavers. How can I remove them or will they (as I have read) fade over time?

      Not sure what caused the white or if it is permanent or not. Depends on what the chemicals are and if it etched the pavers. If a residue just on top, then pressure washing should remove it. If it etched the surface, then it cannot be removed.

    We put in a small walkway last year with white tumbled stone pavers. After a storm this year, the white pavers turned brown. Do you know what happened and how do we get them white again?
