Frequently Asked Questions

WILL I SEE MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE AFTER CLEANING?
Most people are amazed at the difference to their driveway after the high pressure cleaning. It’s only when compared to a newly laid or cleaned surface that the effects of grime, dirt and atmospheric pollution are observed.

HOW LONG WILL THE CLEANING TAKE?
Most jobs will be completed within the day, with block paving we would have to return when the joints are completely dry, to re-sand them with kiln dry sand. If sealing is required this would be carried out at the same time as the re-sanding.

WILL THERE BE ANY DISRUPTION?
Not at all, all we require is access to a water supply, preferably an outside tap, or any other external water source. If none of these options are available we would have to connect to an indoor supply.

CAN YOU REMOVE STAINS FROM A PAVED AREA?
Yes, mould, moss, algae, black-spot and most oil stains can be removed. Although, depending on the porosity of the material, some oil stains cannot be completely removed, but they will be improved significantly.

DO YOU NEED FINE WEATHER FOR THE CLEANING PART OF THE PROCESS?
No, it can be carried out even in wet conditions, but we would need to wait for the area to be completely dry before re-sanding.

CAN THE SEALER BE APPLIED AT ANY TIME OF YEAR?
Unfortunately sealing can only be carried out in the warmer months of the year as the temperatures need to be over 13C. Also the site needs to be completely dry before applying the sealer which often is not possible in the colder months.

HOW SOON CAN WE PARK THE CARS BACK ON THE DRIVE?
Where sealant has been applied we recommend you wait overnight for it to dry thoroughly, which enables the chemicals to activate and optimise the strength of the protective coating. We also recommend leaving it a couple of hours before walking on the drive.

ARE YOU INSURED?
Yes, we are fully insured for Public Liability and we will happily present our certificates when asked.
