Concrete driveways are a beautiful and practical addition to any home. But over time, dirt, grime, mould, mildew and other debris can accumulate on the surface making them look dingy and dull. Pressure washing is the most efficient and effective way to restore them to their original colour and condition. It won’t take long for your driveway to look new again. Read our guide on how we clean concrete driveways with pressure washing!
The Process of How to Clean a Concrete Driveway
Before we start to pressure clean your concrete driveway, we take our time to prepare. To ensure a safe, damage-free, and effective job, we will first determine what type of water pressure is best on your surface, what pressure washing machine to use and what cleaning agents to use.
2. Safety Measures
Safety is a top priority for us. We want to ensure we are safe, you are safe, and your property is safe.
- When operating we wear safety goggles and waterproof clothing and boots.
- We only use safe and eco-friendly cleaning agents.
- Before we start pressure cleaning with chemical agents, we will pre-wet your plants and landscaping and rinse them down when we are done.
- We carefully select a water pressure that provides a thorough clean without damaging your surfaces.
3. Pressure Washing Equipment & Techniques
When it comes to pressure washing your concrete driveway, the right equipment and techniques are essential for achieving a successful clean. First, we’ll select the best pressure washer for your job. Once we have selected the most suitable machine, we will make sure all the components are secure with the nozzles attached firmly and settings adjusted as needed.
When cleaning your concrete driveway, we start at one end and move steadily towards the other while angling the nozzle slightly down. This helps ensure water doesn’t enter into areas where you don’t want it to.
4. Chemical Cleaners
In addition to pressure washing equipment, chemical cleaners can also be used for a deeper clean of your concrete driveway. We use chemical cleaners to tackle tough stains and to kill and stop the spread of organic growth. Chemical cleaners come in various forms, and we have the experience and know-how to select the right cleaning agent for your circumstances.
Now that your concrete driveway is clean and looking its best, it’s important to take the necessary steps for long-term maintenance. Preventative care will help preserve your driveway’s condition and extend its lifespan. We recommend you pressure wash your driveway at least every 6-12 months. This will help remove any build-up of dirt and grime that can cause damage over time.
