What has caused the weeds and moss in my driveway?
When the sand starts to drop between the blocks, mud and dirt tend to get in too (from Shoes, Car Tyres etc) this is along with our unpredicatable climate is perfect for vegetation growth. By keeping the sand between the joints topped up and regularly sweeping you can slow this process down greatly. Alternatively, sealing your driveway can eliminate this problem completely.
How long will it take to clean my driveway?
Our High Pressure equipment means it takes a fraction of the time required by a domestic jet washer. The design of our low level rotary cleaner keeps mess under control (anyone who has cleaned paving with a Karcher Pressure Washer or similar will know what we mean) and away from surrounding areas. We can typically clean 300 metres of paving or driveway in a day. Areas this large usually would be cleaned one day and then left to dry and re-sanded the next day.
What are the advantages of applying a Driveway or Patio sealant?
The application of a suitable sealant will stop any build up of weeds and moss and apart from the occasional light rinsing and sweeping of debris will make the area maintenance free.
What area do you cover?
We clean Driveways, Patios, Paving, Walls and Hard Landscaping throughout the Yorkshire area. We cater for Domestic and Commercial clients.
Can you completely remove oil stains, grease and chewing gum from a driveway or patio?
In 99% of cases we can completely remove oil stains. If the oil stain is too stubborn then we can replace the blocks in that area making the driveway look as good as new. Chewing gum can be completely removed.
Why should I never use a domestic pressure washer on my driveway?
Apart from the very obvious mess that is caused, directly pressure washing of paving will disturb the delicate sand bed the blocks are laid on and can lead to sinking and rutting. Our high powered rotary cleaner is designed to clean the surface and 300mm in depth cleaning out the contaminated sand without disturbing the sand the blocks are laid on or screed.
