Out Damn Spot!!!

27 08 2011

You may have noticed that about six or seven weeks ago (it seems like a lifetime – really) we were having our backyard redone. The concrete slab had cracked badly and our homeowner’s association was in the process of replacing the backyard slabs with brick pavers. Since the brick pavers would “move” with the ground – we would have a nicer backyard that should serve us well for years. Great plan – and so they went to work. About two weeks ago they finished (or so we thought). One problem, when the water dried out after hosing off the sand and dirt from the bricks; we noticed that the bricks seemed stained with thousands of white spots. We (and the homeowner’s association workers) tried several cleaners, brushes and even some industrial cleaners – very little change. So now were in the process of waiting for the workers to buy more replacement bricks to replace all of the stained ones.  Will let you all know how it turns out!

Oh, by the way…here’s a photo of the bricks “after” all the scrubbing and cleaning!
