Driveways are extremely prone to getting dirty but are often the last thing a homeowner thinks about keeping clean. It’s a high-traffic outdoor area that gets driven, parked, and played on, which makes it that much more vulnerable to leaks, spills, scuffs, and all types of inclement weather. As time passes, you may notice cracks appearing in the concrete, or weeds growing between pavers. The longer left unattended, the worse this damage will get. It may be time to think about getting this area professionally cleaned to stop the deterioration in its tracks.
Concrete driveways and walkways tend to be heavily soiled areas in need of a deep clean to remove the built-up sediment and oils that have soaked into the porous surface. Unlike traditional pressure washing, Gulf2Bay SoftWash uses a lower pressure washing technique that is safe to use on concrete surfaces. High water pressure can cause further harm to concrete, especially in areas where there are already signs of deterioration. The use of a soft wash treatment, which contains cleaning agents that are safe, biodegradable, and highly effective, helps to break down this heavy grime, eliminating the need for the traditional high-pressure method.
When cleaning your driveway or walkway, the experts at Gulf2Bay SoftWash perform a full risk assessment to alleviate the risk of unnecessary damage to your property. This includes taking note of whether the surface is uncoated and in need of additional treatment to remove any mold, mildew, or other organic bacteria. Or, if the concrete has an epoxy coating or an aggregate finish then an alternative cleaning solution may need to be considered and the surface may or may not require prior rinsing.
Once the best strategy for the cleaning has been determined, our technicians ensure that the whole space is clear of dirt and debris using a broom or blower. We pay careful attention to the borders, protecting any plants, furniture, or windows that may be located in the surrounding areas. We treat and soak the surface with our eco-friendly cleaning agents, then using our hover cleaner, we rinse away the solution. The hover disc cleaner has a complete set of bristles that work to break up and remove any organic buildup or growth from the surface, clean oil off driveway surfaces, as well as remove ground-in dirt and stains. Manual scrubbing may be needed in some areas with tougher stains such as gum or rust. With all the buildup gone and the surface looking great, our cleaning team will apply an after-treatment that helps the surface stay clean and bright over time.
