collecting between the tiles and the underlying surface (like a
Their response was:
"Indeed there is nothing to stop dirt etc. from collecting underneath
the tiles but generally this wouldn't build up sufficiently so that it

to clean underneath the tiles, they can be lifted as required and the
surface below them cleaned with e.g. a pressure washer".
Can anyone suggest an alternative product?
