Moss growth in block paving

Driveway Cleaning

Is your driveway full of weeds and moss? Is it green and slippery? Do you have unsightly black spots everywhere?

An occasional sweep and regular weed control can help, but sooner or later it's time for the big clean.

Many people will attempt a DIY job, using one of those cheap pressure washers designed for cleaning the car.

Most come to realise that it's very labour intensive and that their equipment is simply not up to the job.

How do we complete a full drive clean?

On the day of the clean we'll usually start by sweeping the surface to remove any loose dirt and organic matter.

Then we'll move on to turbo jetting the perimeter, before pressure washing the main areas within. Very often we'll use a rotary flat surface cleaner to get this part of the job done quick and efficiently.

A regular power wash is environmentally friendly, using only normal tap water, applied at very high pressure.

Optionally, a deep clean chemical foam may be needed to eliminate stubborn organic stains and lichens.

A deep clean is a highly effective chemical treatment, leaving no lasting effects and and biodegrading very quickly.

If the driveway is made of block paving we'll return on a dry day to re-sand the blocks. This is an essential part of the process because it secures the blocks in position and prevents any movement.

If there are deep rooted weeds, it's best to treat them a week or two before pressure washing.

You can easily do this yourself with a glycophosphate weed killer such as Roundup, or we can do this when we first quote for the job.

How much does it cost to clean a driveway?

And how to estimate this yourself.

To keep it simple we normally quote our driveway cleaning prices by the square metre, however for larger jobs or commercial projects we may provide our customers with an estimate based on a daily rate.

We must also account for materials, and whether extra time or multiple visits will be needed to complete the job. For this reason, we have have minimum charge of £95.00

  • Pressure washing starts at a rate of £3 per m2, and we may be able to reduce this for larger areas
  • For a deep clean treatment to remove organic stains, simply add an extra £1.00 per mfor the total area
  • Block paving, including a deep clean and re-sanding, starts at £5.00 per m2, with discounts available for larger areas. 

How to estimate the cost of pressure washing a driveway?

To provide you with a firm price we will need to measure up ourselves, but estimating the cost is fairly simple by just pacing out the area. For most people one metre is a big stride. 

To aid comparison; a public car parking space is about 12m². A tennis court is about 200m².

If you can see black, white, yellow or green spots on the surface, you probably have a lichen infestation and a deep clean using an alkaline foam will be needed to remove this.

To give you the best value for money, for small areas which do not meet our minimum charge we can also include paths and steps, plus walls and window sills (up to 3m high).

Some stains, especially oil, may not be completely removable even with specialist treatments. We will always try our best, but we make no certain promises about this. With block paving may be possible to replace, turn over or relocate the effected blocks. Extra costs will apply.

Please note that whilst most jobs progress without any difficulty, factors such as poor drainage or low water pressure may effect our pricing.

Every job is different so all rates are subject to inspection. We always try to quote a firm price based on what we know before work begins and we'll be upfront with you in the event of any complications.
