6 Tips for Spring Interlock Maintenance (Infographic)

Springtime rejuvenates nature and should do the same for your outdoor living spaces. As temperatures rise and flowers bloom, it’s the perfect time to give your interlock pavers some much-needed attention. This blog and infographic breaks down six essential interlock maintenance tips to keep your pavers pristine. Here’s a concise overview to get you started.

1. Sweep Pavers

Begin your spring cleaning by sweeping off debris like leaves, dirt, and twigs. Regular sweeping prevents staining and maintains the aesthetic appeal of your pathway or patio.

2. Re-Level Any Uneven Areas

Winter can be harsh on your paving stones, causing them to shift or sink. Spring is the ideal time to adjust any uneven pavers to prevent tripping hazards and ensure a smooth surface.

3. Top Up Joint Sand

Joint sand stabilizes pavers and prevents weed growth and insect invasion. Check and refill the joints with fresh sand if they appear depleted, especially after the rainy season.

4. Use Polymeric Sand

For new joint sand applications, consider polymeric sand. This type of sand contains additives that harden and bind when wet, providing a stronger and more durable hold.

5. Wash Stains Immediately

Tackle stains from leaves, oil, and other contaminants as soon as you notice them. Prompt cleaning prevents permanent discoloration and keeps your pavers looking new.

6. Seal Your Pavers

Apply a sealer to protect your pavers from moisture penetration and staining. Sealing enhances the color of your pavers and makes future cleaning easier.
