Block paving is a great way to create a driveway. Not only does it look good, but it is also very durable and easy to clean. In order to keep your block paving driveway looking its best, however, you’ll need to perform some regular maintenance.

  • Start by sweeping away any debris or leaves that have gathered on the driveway.
  • If there is any dirt or mud on the surface, use a stiff brush to scrub it off.
  • Next, use a hose to rinse the driveway clean. Be sure to get all the way into the cracks and crevices.
  • Finally, let the driveway dry completely before parking on it.

The best way to clean your block paving driveway is to use a pressure washer. You can buy one from most hardware stores, or you could hire one if you do not have one. Start by sweeping away any debris and then wet the driveway with the pressure washer.

Block paving is a popular driveway surface, as it is durable and looks good. Over time, however, it may become stained or dirty. A pressure washer can be used to clean it, but you must take care not to damage the blocks.

    • Point the nozzle of the pressure washer at an angle of 45 degrees against the blocks and start spraying gently.
    • Increase¬† the pressure gradually, but be careful not to damage the blocks.
    • Keep spraying until the driveway is clean, then rinse off with a hose.
    • Finally, dry the driveway with a towel or blowtorch.
