Patio pavers are meant to withstand lots of pressure, but too much at once can damage them.

Unfortunately, over time, patio pavers get dirty. This has to do with the way nature operates. Lichen, fungi, and moss tend to build up on patio pavers bricks like they would any regular rock found outside. Thankfully, patio pavers are flat and easy to clean using power washing. However, there are some downsides to power washing your patio. When done incorrectly, power washing can actually damage your patio pavers, so it’s always recommended to receive service from power washing professionals if possible.
