In order to get the best out of your asset and improve its lifespan, regular maintenance is recommended. It could just be ensuring that the surface receives regular footfall, as this prevents dirt, algae, moss and lichens from developing. Brushing and weed killing the surface twice yearly should leave your surface looking well kept. This will ensure that the dirt, algae, moss and lichens cannot settle and any weeds are killed before significantly developing. Perhaps do this when you change your clocks, once in the Spring and once in the Autumn.
Ideally your surface should be professionally pressure washed annually to ensure best performance, but no more than this. Sealing the surface will improve its look and performance and mean it is easier to maintain, but it will still require maintenance. Regular footfall and brushing twice a year will ensure the dirt and vegetation will not settle, and pressure washing every year will keep your asset looking its very best.
