Power washing can save your driveway from harmful growth.
If you do not keep your driveway clean, it can grow algae, mold, moss, mildew – all of which can result in the need for repairs. Pressure washers do such an exceptional job of truly cleaning every pore of the driveway that mold and mildew have no chance to grow.
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.
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.
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.
