Concrete & paver sealing
Concrete & paver sealing to protect your outdoor surfaces in adelaide
Are you looking for professional concrete and paver sealing in Adelaide? The experts of pressure cleaning in Adelaide offer premiere concrete sealing for all your concrete outdoor surfaces.
Concrete sealing is the best way to protect your concrete from damages. Your concrete is made up of thousands of tiny pores. These pores can be damaged when contaminants like water, dirt, or bacteria get into them. Instead of simply dirtying your concrete, these contaminants start to break down the structure of your concrete and cause cracking and breakage.
Our concrete sealing experts know that, to ensure your concrete is protected to the best of our abilities, you should invest in a professional concrete cleaning before we work on concrete sealing. This ensures that no contaminants are left behind in the pores of your concrete when we work on your concrete sealing project. The best way to keep your concrete clean and clear is to invest in our pressure cleaning company.

Choosing your concrete sealer
Choosing a concrete sealer for your outdoor concrete surfaces can seem impossible. There are many options on the market, so it is hard to know what sealer will be right for your surface . The experts at Superior Exterior Cleaning are here to help with all your concrete sealing projects. We will help you choose between the main concrete sealing options and apply the sealer so you don’t need to worry about if your concrete sealer is properly applied. As we only use industry leading products, you can have the confidence that your sealer will last for many years to come.
be wary about using cheap sealers
It can be hard for a homeowner to determine what constitutes a “good” sealer. Sealers come at a range of different price points. At Superior Exterior we often see the unsightly results from low quality sealers that were applied by well meaning home owners. Low quality sealers like the ones that can be purchased at a hardware store often start out looking nice but often peel, flake , yellow or go milky with time.
Cheap sealers generally don’t penetrate into the surface. They merely form a film on the top which means they are far more likely to flake and peel as the bond between the sealer and surface isn’t anywhere near as strong as a sealer which penetrates into the pores of the surface. The other drawback is that cheap sealers often aren’t breathable. A sealer that lets a surface breath won’t suffer from going milky as milkiness is caused by water that is trapped beneath the sealer. A breathable sealer will allow that trapped water to pass through as a vapour whilst still being able to repel contaminants.
The best course of action is to choose a product that is both penetrating and breathable. This will avoid the above pitfalls which will mean you have a trouble free experience with your sealed surfaces. Sealers that are both penetrating and breathable are generally more expensive due to the more advanced technology and materials used. However these sealers provide greater value for money as they provide better protection, look nicer and last longer.

The surface is thoroughly cleaned with our powerful pressure cleaners. Different pressures are utilized depending on the surface we are cleaning. We also apply a mold treatment which kills any mold spores and helps to remove stubborn black spots and streaks for an even better clean.
Once the area is clean, we can then apply a sealer which is best suited for the surface. Our most commonly used sealers allow us to clean and seal within the same day which leads to less disruption for the homeowner and allows us to seal on the cleanest possible surface.
With the sealer applied, it is now time for the curing step. Most of our sealers recommend people and animals to stay off the surface for a 24 hour period and vehicles for 3 days. Following these guidelines will ensure the sealer has ample time to cure and penetrate.
