Our Pressure Washing services primarily breakdown into 3 categories. Each category also has various options to choose from to achieve best results and cater for your specific needs.
Surfaces Pressure Washed
High Pressure Cleaning
Pressure washing provides many benefits:
1. Returns surfaces back to their former glory.
2. Rejuvenates tired looking surfaces and reveals the hidden gem beneath the dirt & grime.
3. Allows surfaces to function correctly. The build-up of moss impedes effective water dispersal from surfaces.
4. Remedies slippery surfaces. Provides safe under footings for pedestrian traffic by removing contaminants such as algae and eliminates the danger of slipping over on such dangerous surfaces.
5. Maintains your investment keeping it spick and span.
Surfaces Power Washed
High/Low Pressure Cleaning
Power washing incorporates hot water and provides all the benefits of a standard clean but also provides the following additional benefits:
1. Produces a far better and deeper clean than standard cold water pressure washing.
2. Improves the final result.
3. Reduces the need to use cleaning detergents (chemicals) as the hot water helps to soften and lift the dirt, grime & contaminants residing on the surface.
4. Provides a hygienic clean.
5. Makes a significant difference when cleaning natural stone surfaces as they really benefit from the inclusion of heat.
Surfaces Steam Cleaned
Low Pressure Cleaning
Cleaning with pressurised Steam/Hot water provides the following benefits:
1. Ability to clean surfaces with reduced pressure ideal for more delicate surfaces that aren't as robust as high-density materials such as block paving.
2. Steam penetrates dirt & grime far better in comparison to cold water which is why there is a greater need to use higher pressure & chemicals if using cold water.
3. Steam provides a natural environmentally friendly, chemical free method of deep cleaning and sanitisation.
4. Pressure washing with cold water blasts materials of surfaces but fails to penetrate & kill spores residing below the surface. Whereas steam will.

Why Pressure Wash?
Although most external surfaces are very robust such as a block paving or patio slabs. However, failure to to maintain them will inevitably lead to costly repairs.
For example, you've paid £1000's for your lovely Indian Sandstone patio. Moss appears and is left to do it's thing and over time establishes itself more & more everyday. If the moss has grown where the joints are located these are warning signs. If left undressed, eventually your mortar will be become brittle and require re-pointing. One way moss causes damage is due to how it absorbs water, freezes, expands and cracks the mortar and before you know it, it's too late, the mortar needs replacing.
Another problem caused by failing to carry out regular maintenance are voids created below the surface which leads to movement and prevents water from dispersing from surfaces as their designed to do. For instance weeds appear between the joints of your block paving, being the conscientious individual your are, you pull them out, grand job you think. Unfortunately, removing the weeds is only 1 part of the process. Weeds will quickly return, if you fail to treat the area with a biocide and failing to re-sand the joints, will allow water to pass freely through the joints which will cause the bed below the surface to soften. Ultimately, the pavers will sink and you will face a hefty bill for re-levelling the pavers.
Note: Always exercise extreme caution when using or handling chemicals. If you are unsure don't use them, as they can do more harm than good. Always conduct a test on a small area before applying to entire area to check on suitability. Ensure correct PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) is worn, for example Safety goggles, Gloves, Respirator etc.

How to Clean Block Paving
Remove any weeds present - try to remove as much of the root as possible.
Sweep up the area - It doesn't have to be immaculate but it will make cleaning easier and save you time and effort at the end.
Pre-Treat surfaces with a driveway cleaner/cleaning detergent. (Optional)
Pressure wash, Power wash or even better Steam clean surfaces.
Rinse down. If your pressure washer struggles to move the debris (sand, mud, moss etc) use a stiff broom to sweep sludge into piles, remove it with a shovel and continue rinsing down.
Post treat surfaces - Not completely necessary but post-treating with something like Hypo (Sodium Hypochlorite) has significant benefits.
It enhances the end result.
As it is a biocide it will kill any remaining spores where organic growth was previously present.
Allow to dry.
Re-sand using Kiln-dried sand.
