A Step-by-Step Guide to Cleaning Pavers: Keeping Your Hardscaping Pristine.

Introduction: Techo-Bloc pavers are renowned for their exquisite design and durability, serving as the foundation for stunning outdoor spaces. Whether adorning a patio, pathway, or driveway, these pavers elevate the aesthetic appeal of any landscape. However, maintaining their pristine condition requires regular cleaning to ensure they continue to shine year after year. In this guide, we'll walk you through the simple yet effective steps to clean Techo-Bloc pavers and keep your outdoor oasis looking its best.


  1. Gather Your Tools:

Before diving into the cleaning process, gather the necessary tools and supplies. You'll need a broom, garden hose, mild detergent or specialized paver cleaner, and a stiff-bristled brush.


2. Sweep Away Debris:

Begin by sweeping the surface of your Techo-Bloc pavers with a broom to remove any loose debris, such as leaves, dirt, or twigs. This initial step helps prevent these particles from settling into the joints, initiate staining, or weed growth. Be sure to remove any leaves/debris prior to snow fall so that the organic material isn't sitting on your pavers for an extended period of time.


3. Rinse Thoroughly:

  • Use a garden hose to rinse the pavers thoroughly. Start at one end and work your way across the entire surface, ensuring complete coverage. Avoid using excessive water pressure, as it may dislodge the joint sand. 4. Target Stubborn Stains:

  • For stubborn stains or dirt buildup, it may be necessary to use a mild detergent solution or specialized paver cleaner. Dilute the detergent according to the manufacturer's instructions and apply it to the affected areas.

  • Let the detergent sit for a few minutes to penetrate the stains, then use a stiff-bristled brush to scrub the surface gently. Take care not to use abrasive materials that could scratch or damage the pavers.

  • For rust stains from steel, fertilizer, or high iron content water, we recommend using professional products like Gator Rust Remover.

5. Rinse Again:

  • Once the stains have been treated, rinse the pavers thoroughly with clean water to remove any remaining detergent residue. Ensure all traces of soap are washed away to prevent any potential discoloration.

6. Winter Maintenance:

  • All pavers, installed by Potted Luck Landscaping, can be plowed & shoveled. De-icing salts will not harm or disrupt the integrity of Techo-Bloc pavers.


7. Regular Maintenance:

  • To keep your Techo-Bloc pavers looking their best year-round, incorporate regular cleaning into your maintenance routine. Sweep the surface periodically to remove debris and inspect for any signs of staining or weed growth.

  • Address any spills or stains promptly to prevent them from setting in. By staying proactive with your maintenance efforts, you can prolong the life and beauty of your Techo-Bloc pavers for years to come.


With the right approach and a little elbow grease, cleaning Techo-Bloc pavers can be a straightforward task that yields stunning results. By following these simple steps and incorporating regular maintenance into your routine, you can ensure your outdoor space remains a captivating oasis for years to come. So roll up your sleeves, gather your supplies, and get ready to bring out the beauty of your Techo-Bloc pavers once again.
