If your stamped concrete is sealed, it was probably used with a multi-coat sealer that has a high percentage of solids and is a UV-resistant solvent-based penetrating sealer. The main purpose of the sealer is to help harden, seal and protect the exterior of the concrete from dust. It repels dust, dirt and other substances that promote the growth of mold and mildew on concrete. Basic maintenance is as follows:
If you notice a white spot on the concrete, especially after rain, the sealer is doing its job. Its dirt and dust above. Rinsing the concrete with a water hose and drying it with a leaf blower to remove excess water solves this problem.
If soda gets on the patio or something else you haven’t seen immediately, use mild liquid soap in warm water to loosen the material. Rinse with a water hose, then use a blower and the surface is clean again.
Plastic legs should be attached to heavy garden furniture or those that are frequently moved.
A saucer is recommended for potted plants to collect extra water; especially if you use a good dose of fertilizer on your plants. We also recommend not using rubber backed door mats as the sealant tends to soak into the rubber and result in a ‘stain’ on your patio.
Stamped concrete should be resealed from time to time. We recommend that you seal your patio 4-6 months after initial sealing. Then close every two or three years. How often the surface needs to be sealed depends on traffic, rain and sunlight. If you notice that the water isn’t flowing or the surface seems absorbent, it’s time to reseal it. If you wait too long, you may notice that the color fades a little. Even if the color fades, concrete is alive again when you find stamped concrete.
