How to clean paint stains from stone paving?

Some home maintenance jobs can create a mess, and it can seem like never ending work is being created whilst trying to improve the home!
A typical example is exterior house painting. However careful the painter is, odd spots of paint can become stuck to adjacent paving and pathways.
Painting gates is another fiddly job, where paint applied to vertical surfaces will drip down onto driveways and paths, where if left it will dry and become very difficult to remove.
In more severe cases, a lot of paint can be spilt! Whoops! What can be used to remove this paint?

Don’t use brick acid!

Don’t use brick acid! This very harsh product seems to be the building trade go to product for clearing up a mess, but we strongly advise against this course of action.
Brick acid is an extremely harsh acid that works by dissolving the top layer of the stone to which it is applied. This can in some cases cause irreparable damage to the stone.

How do I remove rust marks from my patio?

Rust marks can appear on a patio for various reasons, and can prove tricky to remove.

Rust marks can stain a patio where metal furniture has beenplaced onto a stone patio.

If you employ a lawn maintenance company they may spread fertiliser around your patio and path area.  These products can contain iron, and when mixed with water and air they become iron oxide. Again, this will create rust marks on top of the stone surfaces such as patios and pathways.

Rob Parkers Best Rust Remover is easy to apply.  Use a paint brush to apply the product to the affected spots and watch the rust disappear.  Rinse the area with water once the rust has disappeared. When the area is dry Stoneworld recommend sealing the stone to prevent rust stains from occurring again.
