Driveway & Patio Cleaning Service In Gloucestershire

Ultimate driveway cleaning

While costs will always vary, our service and meticulous attention to detail will remain the same for every job. It typically follows this approach.

Before any cleaning takes place we note and repair any areas that require attention.

If weed and moss growth is heavy, then a suitable killer is applied and left for 1-2 weeks to die back (we only use a weed killer that kills the root system on all weeds)

Any stubborn stains such as oil marks and air conditioning run off is pre-treated.

The surface is then professionally pressure washed according to the type of surface.

After washing, block paving is re-sanded, and if this surface is not being sealed, we can use a setting agent to set the sand hard between the blocks reducing the growth of weeds and moss in the future.

If the driveway is to be sealed it will then usually be left to dry out for 3-10 days according to the type of surface and the weather conditions.

The driveway will be sealed with your choice of sealer. There are usually two types of sealer, a solvent based sealer or a water based non solvent sealer. For concrete there is a choice of colours to choose from and all sealers come in a matt, silk or full gloss finish.

When to clean a drive?

Aside from special events, the best time to clean a drive is spring, in order to wash away the winter debris. That’s when we visit our regular or previous clients, if required, to clean, wash and touch up any areas that require attention and to ensure that their drive stays in top condition.

Patio cleaning equipment

In the same way that an oven deep clean needs specialist equipment and cleaning products, so does your patio and paths. We have the skill set, along with the specialist kit and knowledge to ensure stunning results are deliverable.

Patio cleaning

Why clean patios, terraces and paths?
The five most common reasons for path and patio cleaning are:

Preventing slips on slippery surfaces caused by weather, foliage and algae growth.

Increasing the visual attractiveness of the area to enhance your enjoyment.

Increasing accessibility to a wider area for owners, guests and visitors without worry.

Preventing weeds taking hold and causing more significant damage to the pointing between paving which may make the area unsightly.

Clearing up after a storm, flood or party and to identify whether there are longer term maintenance issues in whatever materials have been used (such as paving, stone, blocks, decking or gravel).

What does patio cleaning cost?

Home patio cleaning need not be expensive. At Ultimate Cleaning Solutions we pride ourselves on the patio, path and terrace refurbishment and cleaning service that we provide. Our normal approach is:

After identifying the type of material used, the surface is duly treated to remove all moss, algae, lichen and weeds.

Any stubborn stains are pre-treated prior to pressure washing.

After washing, any loose slabs or wall copings can be rebedded if required, the area can be repointed if necessary.

If the surface is to be sealed then a choice of sealer is available - either a solvent based or a water-based non-solvent sealer in a matt, silk or full gloss finish.

We can apply a non-slip surface to steps and any area of patio should you require it and we also provide a colour enhancing sealer for colourful stone such as Indian sandstone.

Typical costs for a domestic patio refurbishment in Gloucestershire, Monmouthshire and Gwent range from £2.50 to £12.50 per square metre, depending on type of service carried out.
