    Block paving, driveways and patios

    How long will it take to clean my drive?

    It is hard to say as all drives are different sizes and we give all drives 4 different types of process of cleaning but almost all drives are cleaned in a single day, This depends on the size of the area to be cleaned. A typical 2 car drive should take around 2-3 hours to clean. A short re-visit will be required to complete the re-sanding process if this is required.

    Can oil stains be removed?

    Not all oil stains can be removed, It all depends on how long the stain has been there and on what surface, we may have to apply a poultice to the area to draw out as much of the stain as possible, some shadowing of the stain may remain.

    Do you treat the weed infested areas?

    Yes. If necessary we will pre treat areas with a fungicidal wash at least 2 days before the cleaning takes place. This will kill the algae, lichen or moss and help prevent it from returning.

    Will the driveway get damaged by the cleaning process?

    No, with the use of professional equipment and adjustments on water pressure we can assure no damage will occur to your driveway, we will also advise you when the area is inspected weather it could become an issue.

    Can I walk or drive on an area after it has been cleaned?

    Yes after the driveway has been cleaned you can walk on it straightaway.

    Can I walk on the drive after it has been sealed?

    No you must not walk on the drive for at least 4 hours after the driveway has been sealed and you must not drive in it for at least 24 hours or even longer if possible.

    What happens to the kiln dried sand in between the joints of the block paving?

    During the cleaning process the sand will become displaced and will need to be replaced once the area is completely dry, we remove the sand because weeds like to grow in them.

    Do I need to be present when the cleaning takes place?

    No, as long as we have access to a water supply you do not need to be present.

    What are the advantages of having a block paving driveway sealed?

    If sealed the blocks are protected by an acrylic barrier, the sand joints become solidified preventing weeds growing between the blocks, oil stains can be wiped up easy, enhances the look of the driveway.

    What’s the difference between just cleaning and cleaning and sealing a blocked paved driveway or a patio?

    The main difference is the cost. a sealed area is easier to clean, a sealed area will stop weeds and grass growing, a non sealed area needs more maintenance.

    Can a tarmac drive be restored without being replaced?

    Yes it can, you can save lots of money by having a tarmac drive repaired and sealed with a unique sealing compound which helps put goodness back into the tarmacadam.

    Can you change the colour of pattern imprinted concrete driveway?

    Yes we can change the colour plus we can enhance the original colour.

    Can you have a non slip surface on pattern imprinted concrete?

    Yes we can add an additive to the last coat of sealer to prevent it being slippery when the ground is wet.
