Driveway Cleaning Dublin, Kildare, Meath & Wicklow
Cleaning your drive is not easy. It isn’t a task that you can do anytime as weather conditions need to be favourable for you to be able to work. Furthermore, it can be a very tedious task – one that may require vigorous scrubbing, especially if stains are present.
Difficult as it may be, cleaning your driveway regularly is necessary. When you don’t do so, it is going to look unappealing because of the dirt, grime, stains and weeds on it.
Furthermore, not cleaning it can shorten its lifespan. For example, when weeds are allowed to grow, their roots are going to cause cracks to become bigger.
kill Unsightly Weeds & Mold
Weeds growing between patio pavers, mold, mildew, moss, and other such contaminants are more than unsightly; mold especially can mean a very unhealthy outdoor environment! Garden hoses are insufficient for blasting away these bothersome materials from exterior stone, brick, and concrete. A garden hose can do little to actually kill mould spores as well as preventing growing moss and mildew.
Mold, moss, and other such growth might also require a bit of scrubbing for complete and thorough removal. However, too much pressure with a power washing wand and the wrong scrub brush can mean dislodging those stones or scraping away their sealant.
If your outdoor spaces are covered with unsightly weeds, mold, and other such contaminants, it’s time to give RH Power Washing a call to ensure the job gets done right without damaging pavers and concrete.
Restore Your Driveway's Colour
Has your patio become dull, dirty looking and gray? If so, don’t replace them just yet! Your patio might simply be covered with dirt, dried dust, soot, sand, and other debris, and a thorough power washing can bring them back to life.
Take a look at our before-and-after photos of patio cleaning in Dublin, and consider if your home’s outdoor spaces resemble those “before” shots. A thorough power washing can be the solution needed to bring back those rich brick and natural stone colours in your patio and make your outdoor patio look like new again.
Selling your propery? First Impressions Count!
If you are selling your home you might wonder why you should invest in patio or driveway power washing but it's important to note that potential buyers are attracted to homes that look clean and pristine, and well-maintained and first impressions mean everything to potential buyers. A dirty exterior or driveway, can give the impression that the home itself has been neglected and might need cleaning and repairs.
Proper, efficient patio and driveway power washing by RH Power Washing can also remove bothersome mold and mildew, as said. A potential buyer with allergies or sensitivities is not likely to want a house that needs a thorough cleaning before they can even step into their new outdoor space! To attract as many buyers as possible, and avoid losing potential buyers, schedule a driveway power washing in Dublin before calling an estate agent or having an open viewing of your house.
Remove Driveway Stains
Never overlook or ignore stains on your patio or driveway. Motor oil and other fluids from your car are especially corrosive, breaking down binders in concrete and asphalt. If left unchecked, grass stains and other discoloration can also become permanent!
Rinsing off your patio and driveway with a garden hose won’t remove ground-in stains or corrosive substances. A correct and efficient driveway power wash is the most effective means of removing those materials and ensuring a clean space protected from long-term damage.
Power washing will remove some of the sand between the cobble locks due to the washing process and moss/weeds/dirt that have rooted in the sand. This sand needs to be replaced. It’s is a special sand called Kiln Dried Sand as it is a very fine sand that contains no moisture.
The cobble locks are wet after cleaning so generally the Kiln Dried sand is applied on another day once the blocks are dry. This could be the following day in the summer but may take a few weeks at other times of the year. It is all weather dependent.
The cost of re-sanding varies, depending on the cost of the Kiln dried sand which fluctuates hugely and the size of the driveway. Please ask for pricing when requesting a quote.
The process is straight forward as the sand is simply swept between the cobble locks and the excess blower off with a powered blower.
