Does your patio/driveway need cleaning?
Keeping patios and driveways clean is very important. When they get dirty from things like leaves, oil stains, and other grime, it can create risks. Messy paved areas can become slippery and cause falls, especially when wet. Debris also clogs drains, leading to flooding and water damage over time. Dirty, stained surfaces also look bad, hurting your home's curb appeal. Having these areas cleaned will make your home clean and safe.
Our Pressure Washing process
1. Assessment and Inspection
2. Surface preparation
We start the cleaning process by inspecting the patio or driveway. We identify the surface type (concrete, pavers, etc.) and look for dirt, grime, mold and other issues needing removal. During the inspection, we also make note of any oil stains, cracks, and signs of poor drainage or standing water that could cause moisture damage. Based on our inspection, we determine the best cleaning solutions and pressure washer settings to use for cleaning without damaging the surface. This tailored inspection and planning allows us to adjust our approach to meet the unique needs of each customer's patio or driveway.
Before power washing, we prepare the surface area by sweeping away loose debris with brooms and leaf blowers. We then remove any lawn furniture, decor items, vehicles or other objects that would be in the cleaning way. We also cover nearby surfaces, like house siding, that could get accidentally sprayed. Taking the time upfront to clear and protect the space allows us to then focus solely on a safe, thorough power wash
3. Specialized cleaning solutions
4. Patio washing
We pre-treat tough stains by applying specialized cleaners directly to oil, black spots and rust spots. These solutions are left to soak for 5-10 minutes before pressure washing. This dwell time allows the chemicals to break down the difficult grime so the high-pressure water can then rinse it away. Targeting stains preserves the surface and boosts cleaning power.
When pressure washing, we systematically clean section-by-section. We start the washer, adjust the nozzles for optimal pressure and flow rate, then use smooth motions to lift away grime before it re-settles. For stubborn spots, we reapply cleaner and target them specifically. Throughout the process, we inspect completed sections to ensure full cleanliness before moving on. This methodical approach enables effective, efficient cleaning.
5. Final clean
To finalise our cleaning,we rinse down dirty fences, walls, garden ornaments, and windows, leaving them spotless and free from dirt. Additionally, we unclog drains to ensure optimal drainage for a clean and safe patio and driveway. This thorough final cleanup ensures we leve all of your property cleaner than we found it.
6. Protective measures
After power washing, we let the surface fully air dry to allow proper sealer absorption. Then we apply a protective sealant to help prevent future stains and extend the cleaned look. As an optional extra service, we also offer biocide treatment to prevent mold, mildew and other growth. Once the sealant or biocide dries, we remove all equipment, dispose of waste, and return any moved furniture or vehicles to the cleaned space. Taking the time to seal, restore and protect the surface puts the finishing touches on the cleaning service.
