Pre & Post Treatments
Although block paving looks great after cleaning when using methods such as Jet Washing or Hot water Power washing. They fail to remove and kill the spores invisible to the naked eye, embedded within the surface where organic growth was present.
Block paving is often plagued with organic contaminants such as Black and White Lichen, Moss and Algae growth and Black spot. Such contaminants negatively affect how car parks, driveway, pathways & patios look but organic matter such as algae also creates slip hazards which has the potential to cause a life changing injury which is not good for you, your family, your visitors or business! Good news - We offer treatments specifically designed to combat these types of organic growth.
Applying a pre-treatment and or a post-treatment increases the longevity of the clean as it will kill any spores that remain after cleaning and ensures your pavers look their absolute best.
Block Paving Re-Sanding
After we finish cleaning your block pavers we highly recommend re-sanding the joints between the pavers with kiln dried sand. This not only improves the final look of your block paving it's also important in relation to functionality purposes.
During the cleaning process dirt, moss, weeds & sand is removed from the joints.
The sand stabilises the pavers and prevents them from moving. Therefore, it is important to replace the sand between the joints to prevent costly paving repairs caused by the pavers moving.
Once the block paving is dry we can re-sand the joints for you by sweeping new kiln dried sand into the joints to finish the job. It is important to wait until the block paving is completely dry otherwise the sand will clump together and fail to drop into the joints correctly.

How much will it cost to clean my block paving driveway?
Driveway cleaning costs are influenced by several factors including the driveway cleaning company you choose, the condition of your driveway, patio or pathways & the services provided which determine the cost per sq metre. Some companies charge more than others but remember the old saying pay cheap pay twice. Some driveways are in better condition than others and therefore require additional services and attention to detail. A driveway or patio that is maintained annually will require less work and require less cleaning products than block paving that has been neglected, in poor condition, suffering from weed growth and covered in organic growth such as moss, algae, lichen or black spot, as the block paving cleaning process will involve greater time, effort and use of specialist cleaning products and chemicals. Our equipment is fuel powered and therefore the longer it's operating the more it costs. Our equipment comprises of a pressure washer and an independent boiler which both require fuel. Therefore, when both of them are in operation such as for a power wash or steam cleaning this has to be factored into the overall cost for car park cleaning, patio cleaning and driveway cleaning services. Also specialist services such as steam cleaning will cost more than a standard jet wash as it is a specialist service which requires specialist equipment and knowledge.
Why should I hire professional block paving driveway cleaning contractors?
Professional standards come with a professional company and they will have the correct equipment, knowledge and experience in cleaning block paved driveways to get your pavers looking their best. It is often more cost effective in terms of time, effort and money to hire a professional as they will complete cleaning surfaces such as Block paving, Imprinted concrete, Indian sandstone etc in a fraction of the time it would take the average DIYer to do with a domestic jet washer. Due to their knowledge and expertise they are less likely to cause damage that a DIYer may cause if they are in possession of a powerful jet washer and don't know how to use it correctly. Professional results require professional equipment but professional equipment isn't cheap and therefore you'll be financially better off by hiring a professional as apposed to purchasing similar equipment yourself. Better results can also be expected.

Does a pressure washer remove moss?
This all depends on the capabilities of the pressure washer and the amount of moss that is present. Generally speaking a typical domestic pressure washer would not be the tool to choose to remove moss especially if there is a lot of moss in a very large area. However, a powerful industrial pressure washer could be used but even this may struggle if there is a lot of moss present. If this is the case its far more productive and cost effective to remove the moss using a shovel or stiff broom before attempting to approach a task such as cleaning block paving driveways with a pressure washer. This also helps when disposing of the moss as it's far easier to dispose of dry moss compared to the sloppy wet debris that would remain after cleaning if a pressure washer was solely used.
