Although the process differs slightly from block paving to pattern imprinted concrete etc, the basic principles of driveway cleaning remain the same. We use an advanced rotary cleaning system on all drives, eliminating streaking and minimising mess.

First we will prepare the surface which means removing all loose debris, plant pots, bins etc. We will also lift drainage channel grates to remove debris and check the drains. The surface is cleaned using a using a high pressure industrial rotary washer. Once the driveway has been cleaned of all weeds, dirt, moss etc, we check for oil, tyre marks and other stains. These are cleaned with the appropriate cleaning detergent and re-cleaned. We are dedicated to ensuring your driveway is cleaned and restored highly effectively.

We ensure that our cleaning process allows the surface to stay clean for a long time, enhancing the colour of stone and stopping all the following:-

  • oil stains & penetration
  • weather damage & corrosion
  • sand loss between blocks
  • block movement
  • weed growth & ants nests

Pattern Imprinted Concrete

To maintain this type of driveway it is a good idea to arrange for a re-seal about every 3 years. This will protect the structure of your driveway and prevent the surface colour from wearing away. If untreated and not maintained as suggested the pattern imprinted concrete will deteriorate and erode as weather conditions and everyday use cause the original protective sealant to wear back.

Before & After

Maintenance of block paving patios and driveways is advised as they will always attract various forms of weeds and algae to the surface and between the joints of the pavers. The reason for this is because the block paving is porous, and the sand within the jointing sand holds moisture, so in shady areas and north facing driveways or patios, moss, weeds, algae and lichen start to form because of this. Sealing your driveway

will waterproof the block paving patio or driveway, creating a non-porous resin barrier, which will stabilise the jointing sand and greatly reduce colour loss from UV light.
