How often should your driveway be pressure-washed?

Driveway Pressure Washing in London

You have to clean the inside of your home, and the outside area, including your driveway, is just the same. It needs regular sprucing up to stay looking its best.

Built-up dirt can find its way into the cracks in your driveway, and can even cause structural harm. It’s also healthier generally for your family to have spotless outdoor areas.

People often ask how often they should clean their driveway, and we reckon a minimum of once a year is a good rule of thumb.

That keeps the worst of the grime at bay and means it won’t build up. In between times,  keep dirt at bay by washing it yourself as necessary. That way your driveway or other concrete paved area stays looking good.

When you may need to pressure wash outside more than once a year

It makes sense to use a professional driveway cleaning service within a year of the last pressure wash in the following circumstances:

  • If someone in your household has an allergy or is asthmatic, proper cleaning will stop the spread of potentially harmful mould
  • If the weather has been especially wet or very dry
  • If you are selling up, have a special occasion coming up or just want your driveway to look especially good, call in the professional power washers!
Do I really need pressure washing?

Pressure washing uses a high-pressure jet of hot water aimed at dirt to break the bond between it and the surface it is clinging to. It’s faster and more efficient than anything you could do yourself. (It’s also more affordable to have done than you may have realised.)

Steam pressure washing removes dirt stuck in cracks and crevices you wouldn’t be able to reach, and removes even the most stubborn stains.
