SmartSeal UK founder Nigel Blake offers his suggestions for cleaning a driveway that is made of block. Renting pressure washers is an option, which is a great option to cut costs.
Don’t use pressure washers regularly. It is possible to fade the paver hues if you repeatedly pressure wash them. Ideally, you want to pressure wash right before sealing. Pressure washers must be low in order to avoid damaging the pavers.
Always wear goggles to protect your eyes from an intense burst of water should a hose break. Use work gloves. Every potted plant, bicycle as well as other rocks need to be removed from your way. Set up tarps in any gardening beds right next to your desired area to clean.
Pre-treatment is recommended minimum one hour prior to the cleansing in order to get rid of any growth on the plant or algae. Pre-treatment can be applied with the aid of a watering container or sprayer. You must ensure that you fill all joints and spaces between pavers.
The nozzle on a pressure washer needs to be at least 4 inches away from pavers. Move the nozzle closer to those areas stained. When you are ready to remove the pressure washer’s hose, you must turn off the water pipe that is connected to your hose. You could injure yourself if the water pipe attached to your hose breaks.
