Instantly Improve Curb Appeal by Pressure Washing Your Pavers and Driveway

 

Looking to sell your home or commercial property? Curb Appeal is an important aspect of attracting potential buyers. The best way to keep your Brevard Florida outdoor space looking its best is with annual pressure washing. When you have a professional clean your pavers and driveway, you will instantly improve your curb appeal.

 

Here’s Why and How to Instantly Improve Curb Appeal

Understand the Why

Besides increasing visual appeal, pressure washing your pavers and driveway is an important part of building maintenance. Our Florida homes and commercial properties develop stains from mold, mildew, and moss growth. Additionally, debris from storms will build-up and can attract pests when not tended.

Be Thorough

Begin by removing objects sitting on top of the pavers including potted plants, furniture, and anything that covers the area you want to pressure wash. Next, you will want to remove any debris that has piled up in the cracks and corners of your yard. This includes weeds that are growing between the pavers. Make sure to clean the entire area, including harder to reach areas.

After clearing the driveway and pavers:

  •         Dampen the stone and cement
  •         Use a stiff brush to remove as much of the dirt and dust as possible
  •         Pressure wash the area

After everything dries, you will want to refill the cracks with fresh sand.

Use a Professional Service

A professional pressure wash service will take the time to survey your entire space and thoroughly clean the surfaces of all your pavers as well as your driveway. They will also evenly clean each section to remove streaks where dirt is embedded deeply.

What to Look for in a Pressure Washing Service in Melbourne, FL

Tile Roof Cleaning After - Brevard County FLHomeowners in Florida often search for a pressure washing service to remove algae, mildew, and dirt from their property. The warm, humid climate along Florida’s Space Coast, including Melbourne and the surrounding area, creates the perfect environment for biological growth on roofs, homes, fences and walkways. A reliable pressure washing service will have the proper equipment for cleaning several types of surfaces. The pressure in the hose must be regulated to thoroughly clean each of the different surfaces.

Areas ideal for pressure washing include:

  • Walkways
  • Decks
  • Fences
  • Siding
  • Gutters

Shingle and tile roofs require a thorough soft washing process.

Understanding the Surface

Pressure washing uses water under pressure to remove dirt, algae, mildew, fungus and other pathogens from surfaces. These particles build up on walkways and pool decks. A complete pressure wash will remove particles from cracks and textured surfaces without injuring the material.

A pressure wash eliminates oil, dirt, pollen and other harmful debris from driveways. This is the best method for removing grime from concrete surfaces. A powerful stream of water will remove built-up dirt and dead leaves from the corners of concrete and brick steps. Walkways will be free from harmful debris that can cause people to trip or slide.

Mold, black mildew, fungus, and algae may grow on one or more sides of a building. A pressure wash is the best way to eliminate all of the unwanted growth on vinyl, brick or concrete structures.

Pressure washing will renew a dirty, warped fence. A complete washing is usually necessary before a wood fence can be repainted or stained and is not harmful to wood decks and steps.

Roof Washing

Mildew, mold, and algae can grow on roofs in Florida’s humid climate. A high-pressure system can damage shingles and tiles so it should not be used on roofs. A non-pressure spray with a cleaning solution made for roofing materials should be used to remove dirt and grime from tiles and shingle roofs. This is not a do-it-yourself job since special equipment is needed to safely access all parts of the roof.

A special spray is used with the soft washing technique to spread a solution to inhibit the growth of algae and black mildew on the roof. This type of washing process is recommended for fences and the sides of homes as well.

The professional equipment used is different from the power wash units you can buy or rent. A professional pressure washing company will have all of the attachments and other tools necessary to do a complete job.
