21st May 2019

We understand that driveways and paved patios are a huge investment, and you want to get the most out of that investment. At Just Clean Property Care, our driveway pressure wash Wigan team understand how important your property is to you and always take the utmost care when working on our clients’ projects. We have compiled the answers to a few of the most frequently asked questions that we come across in the hopes that it may help.

How often should I invest in pressure washing?

There is no one answer to this question, but our driveway pressure wash Wigan team recommend that you invest in a full pressure washing service at the turn of the seasons to avoid serious buildup that can lead to a hazardous surface. We recommend that our customers schedule driveway cleanings at regular intervals throughout the year to prolong the life of your driveway.

If you do notice any particularly bad build up of moss or algae in between scheduled washes, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Any organic build-up must be removed as quickly as possible as it can pose a hazard to your safety.

Can pressure washing cause unsightly white staining to my block paving?

We are often asked about the white stains that can appear on block paving after it has been pressure washed. These are a product of the salt in the block paving being released and brought to the surface. Our driveway pressure wash Wigan team will never recommend that you pressure wash a brand new block pavement, as it is needless and will generally result in staining.

However, older paving is less likely to stain (efflorescence). Our team will ensure that the correct techniques are used and all equipment is handled correctly. We will always discuss any prior treatments to ensure that we stick to manufacturers guidelines.

What does the typical service entail?

We treat every project as an individual and create a bespoke service to cater to your needs. There are a variety of factors that we will take into consideration before beginning any kind of treatment. These include; different amount of traffic/ daily routines/ the age of the driveway. Our team will always take the time to talk with you about your project and find out your concerns before starting any treatment. Our driveway pressure wash Wigan team will always ensure that you are receiving the right service.
