How to Pressure Wash A Concrete Driveway

Timely washing and cleaning the driveway is essential. Regular vehicle movement makes it look dirty and dull. There are different methods that you can adopt to get a clean patio or driveway. Also, seek help from the professional service for driveway cleaning in East Grinstead.

Ways to Pressure Wash the Concrete Driveway

Pressure washers are portable machines that function on gas or electricity. You have to power the engine with a water pump fed with a garden hose. The water comes out of pressure, with high force. This helps in cleaning the driveway effectively.

You need to assemble the following list of materials –

  • A good pressure washer
  • Broom or a stiff brush
  • A garden hose
  • Roller Cover and Handle
  • Pressure Water Detergent
  • Spray degreaser
  • Gloves for safety
  • Plastic sheeting

The step by step method of cleaning the driveway

  1. Sweep the Area

First, you can begin by sweeping the surface with the help of the broomstick. It helps to clear the fallen leaves, dirt, dust and other debris from the pathway.  If the driveway has any nearby exterior walls, you should provide a covering with the painter’s tape so that there is no damage.

  1. Degreasing

The next step is to degrease the surface of the concrete pathway gradually. With the use of the degreaser, you can break and remove stubborn stains and grime. Some models of the pressure washer have a separate attachment tool for degreasing purpose only. If the stains are tough to remove, you can use a stiff brush for the concrete surface.

  1. Wash with the machine

Now, it is time to prepare the pressure washing machine. Once the degreasing is over, load it with detergent. Check the manual for proper instruction regarding usage. Attach the spray wand, connect it to the washer with the help of a pressure hose. The water supply will be from the garden.

  1. Clean in a detailed manner

Clean the driveway thoroughly to rinse off the detergent. You can switch to high pressure while also turning the knob to rinse mode. This way, you can wash away the detergent easily. Point the sprayer wand all around the driveway and also overlap every process. Allow the detergent to sit for 20 minutes at least, before spraying it with water.

  1. Seal the pathway

Once the process is over, seal off the driveway to protect it from stains and dirt. You can apply a concrete sealer for maximum effect. Do this using a paint roller. Follow the directions correctly to avoid any mishaps.
