Question How To Clean flagstone

I just installed a flagstone deck around my pool and want to clean the surface. Would using a power washer do damage to my stones or grout?

A Power washer could very well pit the Stone Surface and the mortar joints. So if you do use a power wash test a area out of the way to see what it could do. Here is some info on Cleaning Masonry work.

The secrete to a successful cleaning is removing the heavy stains and any larger pieces of mortar first using a scraper and rubbing stone. This will be work. Any grayish white haze should be washed away with an Acid wash. Be it a Cleaner or Muriatic Acid
