Especially glazed clinkers can be easily cleaned. Rinse with clear water is usually enough, more stubborn dirt can be easily removed with a brush.

If you use a high-pressure cleaner, you should not work with high pressure to not damage the joints. Always go more carefully to works.


Even with clinker plaster usually the same applies. Foundations can appear more frequently here than for facades. In general, however, the rain washes smoothly again. Should not that be the case (Z.B. With covered surfaces), the clinker plaster can also be simply scrubbed with clear water.


After about 10 years, a clinker façade should be impregnated again. This helps to get them weather resistant, as well as moss infection or frost damage can not occur.

Algae and moss

Algae and fungal infestation is usually no problem with clinkers. Smooth stone surfaces make it impossible to stick algae and moosen, besides you can not penetrate the very hard surface of the clinker. Only already existing damages on the clinker (no additional impregnation) can have a very light infestation in individual cases.

Expenses at the clinker

Expuffiness at the clinker does not arise from the clinker tiles, but from the grout (38,80 € at Amazon *) . Expenses usually disappear from themselves, only for paving klinkers you can reappear regularly. The cause is the use of Streusalz - thus the appearance is unavoidable.

Again, water is always sufficient to remove. For more difficult to remove efflorescence, use warm water.

Tips & Tricks As efflorescence usually disappear after 1 to 2 years, they generally do not constitute a defect that one can complain. But this can be different in individual cases.
