When maintaining any kind of drive you should always be aware of potential damage and the reduction of the lifespan that a pressure washer can cause. Block paving, tarmac and all forms of concrete can be adversely affected by intensive jet washing.
With block paving, pressure washing will quickly wear away the protective surface layer of the paving and will cause loss of colour. It can also erode the protective weather resistant ‘skin’ on the top of the substrate, this will lead to increased porosity, which in turn enables dirt, grime, algae and lichen to establish itself and become ingrained within the surface.
If you can imagine, every time you jet wash your drive or patio, it creates an accelerated weathering effect that is not beneficial to the surface and will reduce its lifespan.

Until recently, the only way to keep a roof clean was by the potentially damaging and dangerous process of pressure cleaning, while standing on the tiles. Although effective, this type of roof cleaning work should be carried out by fully experienced, professional contractors. If you are not careful, it can result in broken tiles, leaks and discolouration of the roof. Many homeowners are now looking for alternatives when it comes to having their roofs cleaned.
Our Biowash™ roof cleaning system is great for removing dirt and algae from roof tiles and is similar to softwashing but cleans a roof much more effectively.
The Biowash™ roof cleaning process can usaually be done in one day. This new roof cleaning process is carried out from the ground or at gutter level and avoids any potential damage to roof tiles.
After around 20 years, most block paved surfaces would have lost a lot of its original colour. This can leave the driveway or patio no longer a focal point or asset to the home.
A block paved driveway or patio can look great when first laid but can quickly deteriorate if it is not looked after. Weeds in particular can be a big problem with block paving. This is becuase the soft sand filled joints can soon become the perfect environment for weeds to germinate and grow.
To keep block paving looking like new some regular maintenance is required and it would have to be pressure washed to remove any weeds. The block paving should then be left to dry before sealing it for lasting protection.
Block paving has been laid for driveways and patio surfaces over 40 years. It is probably the most widely laid surface in the UK but it can be challenging to keep clean. The best way to keep it looking good at all times is to have the block paving cleaned and sealed.
Cleaning and sealing block paving is now a massive business in the UK. However you don't necessarily need a professional company to clean your block paving as there are products readily availble for the DIY enthusiast.
We have some great driveway cleaning products and protective block paving sealers to help transform the look of block paving. The process for cleaning and sealing block paving is quite simple.
Penetrating damp can be a big problem in the UK, especially in older properties. Protecting walls and masonry from penetrating damp was, until recently, something that could only be done by an damp proofing specialist.
With the advances in waterproofing technology, it is now quite easy to protect walls and masonry from water penetration. A water-repellent treatment for brick and concrete can save thousands of pounds and prevent future problems.
An application of Climashield™ Masonry Protection Cream will keep walls dry in adverse weather conditions at all times and will last for up to 25 years. You can now sleep safely at night knowing your walls will be fully protected against water ingress.
