Pressure washing, also known as water blasting, is a powerful cleaning method that uses high-pressure water to clean surfaces. It’s particularly effective for concrete driveways, path ways, patios and tiled outdoor areas, as well as some building exteriors.
However, some surfaces are delicate and cannot withstand high-pressure water. In this case, gentler cleaning methods like soft washing or surface cleaning may be more suitable.
Pressure washing is the use of high-pressure water to remove unwanted substances like dirt, mud, mildew, algae, and loose paint from outdoor surfaces. The process is highly effective for sidewalks, driveways, decks, patios, and the exterior walls of buildings. In Auckland, where urban pollution, sea spray, and variable weather can contribute to the accumulation of these materials on outdoor surfaces, regular pressure washing is crucial for maintaining the integrity of your property. Spring is the ideal time to schedule residential pressure washing, as warmer temperatures allow for a more thorough clean without damaging delicate surfaces.
Be sure to ask your local pressure wash provider about soft washing services if you have surfaces that are particularly sensitive to high-pressure water, such as certain types of wood or older bricks.
As the chilly grip of winter loosens and the Kiwi weather starts to warm up, it’s time to get cracking on those spring to-do lists. Among all the things on your list, make sure you include professional pressure washing services for your home or business.
Also known as water blasting, pressure washing uses high-powered jets of water to clean outdoor surfaces such as driveways, patios, paved areas, walls and some building exteriors. The process quickly and efficiently blasts away grime that is usually difficult to remove with gentler cleaning methods.
Not only does it improve the appearance of a property, but it also helps prevent damage and maintain its value over time. For example, dirt, mildew, moss and other contaminants can eat away at the surface of your house or building, leading to rot and long-term structural issues. By regularly pressure washing your property, you can prevent this from happening.
Various substances cause staining on surfaces like concrete, driveways, path ways, patios and tiled outdoor areas. They can also damage softwoods, and strip paint on cars or building exteriors. The high-pressure water sprays used in pressure washing can quickly remove these unwanted substances without causing any damage to the surface.
The best time to schedule a pressure wash Auckland is spring. This allows you to banish any residues left behind by winter and prepares the exterior of your property for a new coat of paint.
It’s important to use the right pressure washing method for each type of surface. For example, a surface cleaner is best for paved areas and can be used on most surfaces that are not fabric or painted. On painted surfaces, we will often use a soft wash/chemwash to prevent paint damage. We can also offer a gutter clean/ treatment that will enable rain water to flow properly away from the property.
