Maintaining and Caring for Flagstone: Practical Tips

Flagstone is a popular choice for outdoor areas due to its natural beauty and durability. However, to maintain its visual appeal and functionality over time, it’s important to follow some care and maintenance tips:

  1. Regular Cleaning: Clean flagstone regularly with water and a mild detergent to remove dirt, dust, and other debris. Avoid using abrasive cleaners that may damage the surface.
  2. Mold and Mildew Prevention: Mold and mildew can grow on flagstone, especially in damp, shaded areas. To prevent growth, apply a mold and mildew-specific treatment regularly.
  3. Joint Repair: Periodically check the joints between flagstone stones and repair them as needed to prevent dirt buildup and stone loss.
  4. Regular Sealing: Sealing flagstone is essential to protect it from the elements and maintain its natural appearance. Apply a high-quality sealer regularly as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
  5. Weather Protection: If you live in an area with extreme climates, consider covering the flagstone during winter months to protect it from snow and ice that can damage the surface.
