  • Addaset Cleaning and Maintenance

    Every effort has been made to ensure your Addaset surface is of the highest quality. However, it will look better and last longer if a few simple maintenance procedures are adopted.
    Routine maintenance

    The Addaset surface should be regularly swept clean, removing leaves and detritus material in order to prevent moss growth. If the surface has been contaminated with chewing gum it is best removed by freezing and chipping off as necessary.

    Vegetation

    Any moss or weed growth that occurs should be treated using an appropriate herbicide. Any ingrained algal growth can be removed and the colour of the original Addaset surface restored by applying a strong bleach solution. The bleach solution however should be applied in accordance with manufacturers guidelines and local environmental constraints. After application with the bleach the surface must be rinsed well with clean water.

    Please note that staining may occur from tanning if surfaces are not kept clean from leaf debris, conkers etc.

    Normal/abnormal use

    The Addaset surface has been designed for normal pedestrian and vehicular traffic use, therefore protection should be provided wherever possible against abnormal usage.

    Abnormal usage applies to heavy objects such as skips. These should not be dragged across the surface, the Addaset must be protected in this instance to avoid any impact damage, staining etc.

    Light coloured Addaset Blends may show tyre marks, removal by pressure washing as detailed below may be required.

    General cleaning

    General cleaning of the surface can be carried out by cold pressure washing up to a maximum 150 bar rating to remove dirt and grime. The water should be applied using a fan type lance which should be kept 200mm above the installed Addaset. Care should be taken however to prevent damage to the surface with excessive water pressure.

    If the surface is contaminated with any cement or concrete marks these can be removed using dilute hydrochloric acid or a proprietary cement remover. In all cases we recommend that a small area is carried out first to confirm suitability.

    Oil stains should be removed as soon as possible using a mild detergent as required to prevent possible staining.

    Damage repair

    Damaged surfaces should be repaired as soon as possible. Please contact the contractor who installed the surface.
