3rd July 2019

Our Driveway Cleaning Wigan team are always on hand to answer and questions that you may have regarding our pressure washing service. Paving and driveways can be a hefty investment and we understand that you may be hesitant about hiring somebody to work on it. We like to assure all of our clients that they are receiving the very best service and specialised treatments and our friendly, professional team are always on hand to offer you answers or advice. Below, we have listed some of the more frequently occurring questions that our team encounter.

Why should I invest in a professional service?

First and foremost, pressure washers are a specialised and highly powerful piece of equipment. If used incorrectly, you can cause irreparable damage to your driveway or patio area. Our Driveway Cleaning Wigan team will always advise against carrying out pressure washing yourself.

Without prior knowledge of training, pressure washing can disturb the very foundations of block paving. If a pressure washer is applied directly to block paving, it can disturb the sand layer that rest beneath. If this delicate layer is damaged it can lead to sinking.

How long does this service take?

This is dependant on the size and staining of your driveway. Timings will be covered by our Driveway Cleaning Wigan team during your consultation. We always aim to offer you the finest service possible and it should take us no longer than one day, even for the largest patios and driveways.

How do you remove weeds and how can I prevent regrowth?

We will include a weed removal and treatment service if that is something that you wish to incorporate into your driveway cleaning. Our Driveway Cleaning Wigan team can include weed killing chemical treatment for more stubborn weeds, but for smaller outbreaks, our team can use our pressure washing equipment to eradicate the problem.

When your driveway is clean and weeded, our Driveway Cleaning Wigan team will provide your surface with a sealant. This will ensure that any external substances like oil, moisture, dirt and weeds stay out of your driveway.

Is my driveway beyond saving?

We are often asked if a driveway or patio is beyond saving. The truth is, as bad as the staining and discolouration may seem, in 99% of cases, we can revive your driveway. No matter what kind of staining and dirt that has accumulated on your driveway, our qualified Driveway Cleaning Wigan team can use our specialist equipment to invigorate your driveway.

If sections of your driveway are beyond repair (i.e are sinking or crumbling) we can recommend the next course of action to get your paved area back into top shape. No challenge is too much, and our fully qualified team can work with a variety of soaps, detergents and pressure washing machinery to provide a superior clean to any driveway.
