How to remove latex paint from stone pavers?


After some remodelling work we're left with a large paint stain on our courtyard stone pavers. How would you go about removing it?

Thanks!

Power washing should do the trick.

Thanks! Would we be able to rent a tool from say Home Depot to do this? Is it safe to do by ourselves or should we hire someone?

You can rent a power washer at any rental place. All it does is shoot high-pressure water out like a car wash on steroids...Very handy for cleaning concrete, decks, etc. If you can start a lawnmower you can handle it. It hooks up to your hose.

It should remove latex paint without much trouble, but might not get down into all the pores.

Get a powerwasher. It will make short work of cleaning up the pavers. You can rent them at home improvement stores and yes they are safe to use, however where eye protection.
