Driveway Deep Cleaning
In our opinion driveway block paving is by far the most technical of all paving to clean, maintain and prepare for sealing, all down to the jointing sand.
The jointing sand remains damp in the UK all year round and allows weeds & moss to flourish and ants love the sharp sand base to build their nests, which can undermine the blocks allowing them to drop with the weight of your vehicle.
From years of research and field testing we have perfected the cleaning of block paving, removing dirt, killing algae, moss and dissolving black spot. Through our field testing over the years we have found that it is far more important when sealing block paving to stabilise the jointing sand to a depth of 15-20mm setting the sand solid. Stopping weeds, moss, ants nests, plus at the same time the surface will be sealed inhibiting algae, black spot and dirt absorption. We have learnt over many years if you do not opt to stabilise the jointing sand and seal the surface it is very important to treat the block paving and jointing sand with a weed treatment to stop seeds from germinating growing into unsightly weeds.
How We Restore your Block Paving...
We apply a pre- weed treatment to kill existing weeds.
On the day of the clean we spray specially selected biodegradable traffic film remover, to break down any grease and traffic film.
Using our industrial high pressure cleaning equipment and our rotary floor tool we will deep clean your paving. removing all kinds of moss, mould, and surface dirt etc. If you are having the sand stabilised and the surface sealed, we will remove 15-20mm of jointing sand.
After the deep clean if there is any algae or block spot, we will apply a Liquid Shock Treatment. The treatment will dissolve the algae and black spot.
We will take away all the debris with us, clean down your windows, window frames and doors, leaving you very happy.
Once dry we will return approx. 48 hours later depending upon weather (as the surface needs to be dry) to then replace dislodged sand from the joints with kiln dried sand. If desired then apply our Weed Treatment which lasts between 4-6 months.
If you are having the sand stabilised and surface sealed. the weather needs to be dry for 5 days (4 days of which the water needs to have had time to evaporate and soaked away before we return on the 4th day for the application. The 5th day allows the sealant to cure.
