Our driveway, patio, block paving professional cleaning service involves a 4 stepped cleaning process. Each stage is described below.
Step 1 - Surface Cleaning. We can revive your drive, perk up your patio or spruce up your decking using our specialist purpose made equipment that will transform that 'tired' look to a 'like new' appearance again. We start by cleaning the hard surface concerned with a contained and concentrated high pressure water jet. This removes moss and algae, grime and general outdoor dirt that etches onto hard surfaces over time. Most importantly, our industrial machines are more powerful than domestic pressure washers that are available. We take care of the cleaning process without the downsides associated with home pressure washers which consume high volumes of water and send water shooting in all directions!
Step 2 - Weedkiller and Fungicidal wash. We can help you maximise the intervals between drive maintenance work by using a fungicidal spray. Application of a fungicide kills off residual dislodged spores of moss and lichen. These spores have been totally removed from the surface, restoring the "wow" factor. To keep that "wow" factor, it's best to "zap" the area with a fungicide to stop the weeds lurking in the gaps and coming back any time soon !
Step 3 - Re-sanding. We will re-sand any jointing material dislodged during the cleaning process, so all weeds can be removed, with peace of mind that the jointing will be re-instated like new! We will brush in all the jointing with fresh sand. Not just any old sand - we use kiln dried sand which is the right tool for the job. You may well ask: is that it - just cleaning and re-sanding the jointing ? Well, not quite ! If you want your cleaned surfaces to remain looking fresh for as long as possible, we recommend a 4th step: applyling a finishing layer of protective sealant of acrylic coating.
Step 4 - Sealant Coating. We certainly recommend that you seriously consider having a coat of clear protective sealant sprayed over the pre-treated area of paving concerned. This will prolong the life of the treatment and keep your revitalised paving area looking its best for much longer. The sealant stops the sand from being washed out by the weather - it seals and stabilises the sand in the joints between the blocks. Put it this way, while we are on site already, it makes sense to pay a little bit extra to protect your hard surfaces for much longer, so that you and your property will get the maximum benefit from calling the specialists in!
