Why Should You Have Your Driveway Cleaned?

Our driveways see a lot of action every day. Foot prints, paw prints and tire marks can all wear our driveways down over time and make them look really dirty.

Unfortunately, driveway cleaning is often one of the last things homeowners think about when it comes to their home maintenance and home repair to do lists.

Having your driveway pressure washed often is an excellent way to keep your driveway in ship shape all year round. But do you know why you should have your driveway pressure washed? Below are 4 reasons why you should have your driveway cleaned.

Safety

We believe that safety comes first, last and always, so this has to be the first point on our list! When you don’t clean your driveway, dirt, algae, mold and grime can build up before you know it. This is dangerous for three reasons.

Firstly, a dirty driveway can be slippery. That dramatically increases the chances of you and your family having trips and falls when you’re outside – and inside if you bring the dirt into your home on your shoes. 

Secondly, a dirty, slippery driveway increases your chances of bumps, skids and crashes in your car. 

And third, the grime and mold that builds up on uncleaned driveways can cause allergic reactions and breathing problems.

We highly recommend that you get your driveway professionally cleaned to make your home safer.

Appearance

It goes without saying that a clean driveway looks better than a dirty one. But a clean driveway can also have a huge impact on your home’s curb appeal.

Getting your driveway cleaned professionally with a high pressure power washing tool will make the outside of your property look fresh and smart and can even accentuate areas in your yard, such as your lawn or garden.

This is especially good if you’re trying to sell your home because pressure washing can add thousands of dollars to the value of your home.

Weeds

If you feel like your battle against weeds growing through your driveway is never ending, you’re not alone. But when you have your driveway pressure washed, your weeds will be removed and they won’t grow back as quickly. This is because dirt in the cracks of a driveway can give weeds a place to root and it can also give them sustenance so that they thrive.

Prevent damage

Regularly having your driveway cleaned can help prevent it becoming damaged over time. This also means it can save you money in the long term because you’re less likely to have to carry out repairs which can be time consuming if you do them yourself and expensive if you hire someone else.

We recommend that you have your driveway cleaned at least every 3 months – so once per season. Depending on your local climate and the wear and tear on your driveway, you might want to have it cleaned a little more often.
