Power Washing To Enhance Appearance and Safety

I Recommend Power Washing Driveways, Walkways and Sidewalks:


  • To provide a safe, smooth surface from your car and sidewalk without build up to slip on or trip over.
  • To provide a clean path to minimize tracking dirt into the house and car. It will help you keep your carpets and rugs cleaner and last longer between cleanings.
  • To extend the life of the hard surface with little required maintenance.
  • To increase the homes curb appeal, keep the neighborhood looking well kept and maximize your home's market value.


Other Reasons to Pressure Wash Driveways, Walkways and Sidewalks


Curb appeal - If you are selling your home or getting it refinanced, then you probably know the importance of curb appeal. It's less expensive to pressure wash the driveway and sidewalks to make the home more attractive than paying for more advertising on it taking longer for your home to sell.


Prepare Concrete or Masonry Surfaces for Sealing - Pressure washing concrete or masonry surfaces is a great way to prepare the areas for sealing.  Sealing the driveways and walkways keeps the masonry looking good for the life of the product.  Sealing decreases the porosity of the surface preventing the build-up of dirt which provides fertile ground for the growth of moss and algae.  Once the areas are properly sealed, ongoing cleaning becomes much easier as a low pressure garden hose with an adjustable nozzle will work to keep it looking great.


Prevent a Slip or Fall – A build-up of moss, algae, mildew and dirt can create a dangerous environment, especially when wet.  Preventing an accident from happening is way more thoughtful and economical than allowing the risk to continue to grow.  These slippery areas are way more dangerous for older friends and family who may not have the best balance.  A fall on a hard surface can possibly cause serious ligament damage or broken bones.


Limit Liability - Unfortunately, most people do not think of limiting liability until after something happens to them or someone they know.  If a person trips, falls and injures themselves on your driveway or walkways in front of your house and the area was not safe, then they may sue you to recover expenses and or lost wages associated with missing time at work. Home owners insurance may or may not cover this. It's cheaper to clean and make necessary repairs to the surface areas.
