How to Prevent Leaf Stains on Concrete
Leaf stains are a homeowners worst nightmare. If you have lots of trees on your property, it is a blessing and a curse at the same time. Trees equal work, as in cleaning up all the leaves that shed from those trees each fall, this can be such a headache to a homeowner.
Every homeowner knows the feeling of dealing with trees on their property. Fall is great because it gets cooler outside, however, the work that goes into keeping your home's landscape up to par is less than fun.
What is the Best Way to Prevent Leaf Stains?
There are a few ways a homeowner can go about keeping their hardscape areas looking nice and clean year-round.
One way is to always do the typical thing most people do: sweep or blow off the leaves daily so they don’t sit on the driveways or pavers and stain them.
A homeowner could always do a DYI pressure wash job and remove staining that way. You could also pay your landscaper extra $$ to rake all the leaves up to keep your patios and driveways clean during the fall season.
Or, you could do what we recommend every customer do to truly protect their pavers and concrete driveways. When you get your hardscapes sealed with a water-based sealant, this helps prevent staining from leaves on your concrete surface.
If a homeowner wants an easier way to get rid of the hassle of leaves shedding during the fall, then opting for a company to come out and seal your brick pavers and concrete driveways is the best option.

At Bay area power washing, our companies focus is to help our local homeowners understand that sealing their driveways and uncovered patios is their only rescue from the hassle of leaf stains. Pressure washing DYI or hiring a company every few months will cost a lot of money and the stains don’t always 100% go away with these methods.
Investing in a quality concrete sealer will keep those concrete surfaces free from leaf stains and if they do get stained they clean up a lot easier then if your driveways are unprotected.
Choose your local concrete sealing specialist and have them seal your driveways and brick pavers, you will be much happier with the end results than those that choose to ignore sealing concrete.
