  • How to Clean Indian Sandstone in 8 Steps

    Indian sandstone is one of the most popular paving materials. It’s easy to see why. It looks sublime in both traditional and modern gardens due to its rustic finish, earthy tones, depth of character and versatility.

    However, like all natural stone, it’s not immune to heavy footfall, spring showers and winter frosts, which means regular TLC is essential to keep it looking fresh.

    Without taking the proper maintenance measures, Indian sandstone is susceptible to discolouration and decay. The severity of the deterioration depends on time, use, the type of foliage nearby and the proximity of the stone to water.

    Thankfully, there’s no need to stress! Cleaning Indian sandstone is straightforward and requires little effort - a simple wash-down with soapy water eradicates everyday grime while a diluted bleach formula tackles stubborn stains, moss and algae.

    In this post, we’ll guide you through cleaning Indian sandstone in eight simple steps.
