So, why have your drive cleaned? Well, believe it or not your driveway looked a lot better when it was first installed compared to how it does now. You may have inherited your drive or even paid to have it installed. Either way, it was a costly investment that is probably in need of a little TLC. How can you tell? Simple…

Here’s 7 Things to look for when caring for your drive.

  • Can you see a difference from where your cars are parked and the rest of your drive?
  • Have you got weeds and moss growing between the blocks?
  • Is there green algae masking the true colours of your drive?
  • Have you got Lichen, which are white or black ‘spots’ growing on your drive surface?
  • Has your drive been cleaned before but not re-sanded?
  • Have some blocks become loose?
  • Can you see oil stains where the cars are normally parked?

The question is – How do you deal with these issues?

As Northampton’s Premier Drive and Patio Cleaning Company, the driveway restoration team at Bailey’s Floor Care have been carrying out driveway cleaning and restoration in Northamptonshire areas for a long enough time for us to have learnt that there’s more to a professional service than just a domestic pressure washer, as most domestic pressure washers just aren’t up to the job – there’s not enough pressure or water flow to tackle most driveway cleaning projects.

Bailey’s driveway cleaning services are both pet and plant friendly – we don’t use any chemicals when cleaning your driveway (unless you have an oil stain – then we’ll need to use a safe detergent based product to try to remove the oil stain from your drive). We rely on the power of the pressure washer to do the work. We don’t use bleaches like other companies do to deal with stains.

After we’ve cleaned your driveway, it’ll need to be re-sanded to stabilise the blocks. You see, if done correctly, having your driveway cleaned by a professional driveway cleaning company will remove the sand from between the blocks – an important part of the process to ensure all the weeds and moss has been removed. If your driveway isn’t re-sanded using kiln-dried sand then over time the foundation of your driveway will become unstable as the rain starts washing it away! This is why it’s important to re-sand your driveway after it’s been professionally cleaned.

To finish off your driveway it should be sealed. The seal will to protect your drive from oil stains and help prevent the growth of weeds as the seal will ‘harden’ the sand that’s between the joints helping to prevent germination from weeds and will resist moss from taking a hold but we all know that we’re fighting nature here and eventually she always wins!
