Pressure washer surface cleaner safe for travertine

I have an 18-year-old scabos travertine patio. Itís in good shape, but it could use a cleaning. Is it OK to use a 2000 psi electric power washer with a circular cleaner? Would that be strong enough to remove light weeds and moss within the joints? I would then lay fresh polymeric sand over the top

That will do it and it will blow the sand out of the joints.

A wand gives you more control. It allows you to focus on areas that need more cleaning and to avoid the gaps between the stones if desired to minimize blowing the sand away. Plus, not everyone has a floor cleaner attachment.

I don't think you will get great results if your pressure washer is 120v powered. It simply doesn't have the power and water flow to do serious cleaning. You may want to follow up and hit difficult areas with a hand wand.

I was envisioning a spinning nozzle........ rotating nozzle.
It's a 0į spinning tip.
