8 Benefits of Pressure Washing Your Driveway

A high-traffic area, your driveway takes a beating. Regular pressure washing will keep your driveway in top condition and prevent permanent damage. Here are 8 other benefits of pressure washing your driveway.

1. Prevents Mildew, Mold, and Other Harmful Growths

Mold, mildew, algae, and moss growths can gradually eat away at your driveway surface causing safety hazards and costly repairs. Pressure washing your driveway prevents these harmful growths and discourages them from growing back.

2. Limits Weeds

You've seen them, those green, scrawny things that pop up in any crack in your driveway.  Weeds. As they grow, their roots grow - widening the cracks and causing further damage. Every spring, do an annual pressure washing to remove weeds along with the dirt that helps them grow? Our coat of sealant after pressure washing also helps to help keep your driveway cracks weed-free for the rest of the year.

3. Eliminates Stains

Every day stains and the accumulation of oil, mud, and dirt can mar your driveway. Your car may leak fluid (parked service vehicles often drip too). When stains adhere to the driveway - they need more than a good hosing-down and left untreated will be harder to remove. With professional pressure washing the break up oil and grime in every crack, pore, and crevice leaves your driveway sparkly clean.

4. Increases Safety

A clean, well-maintained driveway always has a rough surface to maintain friction. Buildup of mold, mildew, and oily residue can reduce that friction, making your driveway slippery. Over time and without maintenance, driveway surfaces can also become pitted or cracked - becoming hazardous. By removing these deposits with pressure washing, the rough driveway surface is restored and pits and cracks kept at bay.

5. Saves Time and Exertion

It takes time and physical exertion to manually scrub your driveway. Plus, it may not provide the cleaning needed. Professional pressure washing gets down deep into any cracks - removing dirt, oil, and grime. You save time, labor, and receive the expert maintenance your driveway deserves.

6. A Cost-Effective Method

Without regular maintenance, your driveway can erode over time resulting in costly repairs. Regular pressure washing eliminates dirt and grime, while also preventing pitting and small cracks that can turn into large cracks - and expensive repairs.

7. The Weather Effect

Weather is bad enough, but the salt and/or sand you use leaves behind granules that accumulate on concrete and asphalt. Although salt does not deteriorate asphalt, it can harm concrete. With pressure washing we eliminate those sand and salt build ups and keep your driveway at its best.

8. Improves Curb Appeal and Home Value

As a first impression of your home, pressure washing your driveway will improve your home's curb appeal and increase the overall value of your property. Pressure washing, together with your spring landscaping, helps to spruce up the outside of your house. It is also very important when selling your home.
