weeds in pavers?

i am not a pressure washer guy but one of my customers has terrible weeds and moss growing from the cracks inbetween the pavers and was wondering if i can rent a pressure washer to clean the weeds out from them?

if so any tips would be appreciated or if this pressure washer work is out of the scope of a landscape maintenance guy then let me know and ill find a pro to do it.

Have to be careful with pavers as you can easily blow out the sand and flood the area beneath. This will cause the paver to sink and leave uneven surface. Chems and low pressure are key here. Also communicating the need for new sand after cleaning. (Up-sell sealing)

Apply a pre-emergent to prevent/reduce future weeds.
