driveway cleaning

High pressure cleaning on exterior house

Why every property owner should invest in high-pressure cleaning

Have you driven into your driveway and noticed multiple oil stains? Or had lunch on the patio and thought, 'the paving is looking a little rough?!' The exterior of your property is open to the elements. Moss grows between pavers. Dirt builds up on bricks, and decks become discoloured from water. It doesn't take long for your building to look unkempt. So now you're searching for ways to bring your property back to its former glory. Maybe you're thinking of doing a DIY cleaning job? Or wondering about professional pressure cleaning? If you want to maintain the exterior of your building, you've come to the right place. We'll walk you through high-pressure cleaning basics and give you the key benefits so you can make an informed decision.   What is high-pressure cleaning? High-pressure cleaning removes residues from exterior surfaces such as bricks, tiles, concrete, decks and walls with a high-pressure water stream. The professional high-pressure machine has a heated water tank and a focused jet, with an output pressure of 5000psi – 50 times stronger than a standard garden hose. The combination of commercial-grade detergent and the hose pressure dislodges hard-to-move dirt and breaks down stubborn grease. As a result, high-pressure cleaning keeps building exteriors in pristine condition.    What can high-pressure cleaning remove? It may seem like an investment, but exterior house washing and commercial high-pressure cleaning will save you money in the long run. How? Well, think about it. If you leave residue to build up and never remove it, your property will age faster, materials will break down, and you will need to replace them down the track. Renovations are more costly than maintenance, so booking services like deck maintenance will help you save money in the long term.  Minimises hazards and health concerns  Dilapidated buildings can house a host of hazards, including mould, dust and pollen. Mould is a particular issue, and its build-up can quickly become toxic, making your property a health hazard. If you have mould growing on the exterior of your building, it's best to get a professional to remove it. Professional moss removal cleaners use protective equipment to avoid breathing in dangerous spores.    Why not do a DIY high-pressure cleaning job? We wouldn't blame you for being tempted to do a DIY job – you can buy house high-pressure cleaning products at the hardware store, after all! But a DIY job is risky because retail cleaning products can damage porous surfaces and discolour painted walls. It's also easy to spray the dirt elsewhere, which is not ideal. Trained commercial cleaners know how to adjust cleaning methods for different surfaces, e.g. when doing oil stain removal from driveways they learn to soak the oil in hot water and alkaline detergent to avoid damage. Professional high-pressure cleaning is also stronger than store-bought hoses, and cleaners use biodegradable cleaning products that are gentle on your property. As a result, you end up with a quality clean without damage.    High-pressure cleaning services  Kleenit provides extensive high-pressure cleaning services for residential and commercial properties in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra and beyond.  Services: Paver cleaning  Driveway Oil Stain Removal  Deck Maintenance  Patio Cleaning  Exterior House Cleaning  Building Washing  Driveway Cleaning  Concrete Cleaning  Moss Removal    Keen to high-pressure clean your property?

Renovating a paver brick driveway

While it’s the entryway to your property and the first thing you see when arriving home, paving brick driveways often don’t get the same love and attention as other areas of the home. You likely sweep the front porch and shake out the welcome mat every so often, but a damaged or dirty brick paver driveway can make any property look rundown. But there is a quick and inexpensive way to get your driveway looking golden again. Professional high pressure cleaning at least once a year can help keep your home looking the best in the street - or hey, even the suburb. A simple touch-up makes a great first impression for guests and is a must before listing your home for sale. Paver Cleaning: Removing Oil Stains  No matter how much you sweep with a broom or spray with a hose, engine oil spatter makes a brick driveway look darker or permanently wet. Oils at the surface also hold onto dust and dirt — stains may not be permanent, however. A professional pressure cleaner may be able to remove oily stains from your driveway or carport with hot water high-pressure cleaning. Hydrocarbons like oil and petrol will penetrate deeper into most sealers over time, so it’s better to clean oil stains as soon as possible. If the oil stain has set into your pavers, we may need to use a caustic and surfactant to break down and remove the oil particles that’s seeped deep into the pores of the pavement. Following this, a re-sealing of the pavement is highly recommended. And if you have a new driveway, prevention is always better than cure. To prevent restaining, consider driveway sealing; more on that below. Paver Cleaning: Removing Moss, Lichen and Mould The sooner you get rid of things growing in your driveway, the better. Lichen is a tough little bugger that holds on tight and spreads through spores, secreting acids to release minerals in stone to feed its growth (albeit in minuscule amounts). The best treatment we’ve found for lichen and mould is sodium hypochlorite, a potent bleach that lifts away black spots and kills lichen. In most cases, hot high-pressure cleaning will be enough to blast away moss and the dirt that leaves in its footprint. Removing Rust Stains From Driveway Pavers Rust stains can come from a few places. Many fertilisers formulated for lawn growth may include oxidising minerals - so watch where you scatter them. In WA and other iron ore-rich areas, bore water staining and red dirt can lead to red/orange spots on an otherwise clean driveway. A combination of rust-removing solution and high-pressure spraying can have some success - but in some cases, driveway painting and sealing will be the only way to return a driveway to looking uniform again. Protect Your Paving Brick Driveway with Paver Sealing If you think there’s pressure in your job, just think what a driveway has to put up with — supporting at least a tonne of a car every day. Sometimes two or three!  The fact is, many paver sealers aren’t up to the challenge of so much friction and weight.  Tyre marks are the remains of rubber particles left behind due to the abrasiveness of the surface. Now, you’re probably not doing doughys out the front of your property, but marks can happen pretty easily with a handbrake left on or simply from soft tyres slipping on a hot day. In most cases, sealing the surface can prevent the rubber from becoming embedded and tough to remove. What about those shiny clear ‘marks’ that you might see after it rains? That’s usually the remnants of tyre shine, used by auto detailers and some tyre manufacturers. Unfortunately, it’s often silicon-based and pretty difficult to remove, though few homeowners see it as an issue, as it’s only visible when wet. Using a suitable brick driveway sealer is imperative, as most film-type sealers can peel and delaminate under the weight and grip of a vehicle. Driving across a surface can be highly abrasive, grinding sand and grit into the surface. Parking in the same spot every day, especially if you need to turn your tyres to exit the property, will gradually wear down the sealant, potentially causing it to ‘come off’ or look spotty. Ask your driveway sealing professional if they’re using a deep penetrating type sealer, which offers robust protection against the above. Booking professional cleaning, painting or sealing Keeping your driveway free from dirt and grime is never going to be an easy or enjoyable task.

Cost-effective home improvement

Quick home improvements that can help with selling your home faster and better A cost-efficient home improvement is a good starting point if you’re planning to put your house on the market, making sure it looks as attractive as possible will help you to secure a quick sale for the maximum amount of cash. Although you’ll spend a lot of time and effort perfecting its interior look, you can’t forget to give the exterior the attention it needs. After all, the outside of the property will be the first thing the buyer notices, and an unkempt, untidy exterior could prevent them from even entering your property and putting in an offer. Below are a few ways you could improve your property’s exterior before putting your home up for sale and handful of information on 2018 property market report. Step 1. Thoroughly clean the driveway and paved areas Whether there’s a stubborn oil stain on your driveway that’s become a real eyesore or years of weathering and use have caused a thick layer of grime to build up, high pressure cleaning can eliminate stains and dirt to give it back that freshly-paved look. No matter what type of driveway or paving you have, from concrete to brick paved or limestone, rest assured that we can clean it effectively. Step 2. Wash your house down Perhaps you hadn’t noticed just how filthy your home’s exterior walls, gutters and roof had become over time. However, the brutal effects of weathering, exposure to dust and dirt, and even cobwebs or animal debris from unwelcome inhabitants will make any would-be buyer think your home has seen better days. Treat it to a house wash down to ensure it looks it's absolute best before anyone comes to view it. Step 3. Don't forget the patio cleaning If you think about all the summers you’ve spent on your patio entertaining family, cooking food and relaxing with friends, it makes sense that it’s probably seen better days. Patio cleaning and paver cleaning can remove any dirt and stains from food, shoes and debris, enabling buyers to imagine spending future summers out there with their own loved ones.

Driveway Cleaning

4 reasons to high-pressure driveway cleaning

Without a doubt, one of our favourite jobs here at Kleenit is a request for a super-clean, just-like-new driveway. Whether it’s made of brick, pavers, concrete or something else, we have the high-pressure cleaning experience, equipment and ability to get that driveway looking like it’s just been laid. But why bother ordering us for driveway cleaning? Is it really that important? Is it worth the time and money? Street appeal is your property mojo Did you know that a huge factor when assessing the value of a home is how it looks from the front? That’s because when you’re selling, many people will be instantly turned off by something as unsightly as an old driveway. On the other hand, it could be one of the ‘first impressions’ that means love at first sight and gets you the house price you’re looking for. Let's talk about safety Something else you might not know is that it’s not just dirt that is making your driveway look dirty. It’s also mould, mildew and even algae – and do you know what happens when these microorganisms get wet? That’s right, they get slippery. And whether it’s your kids, your grandparents or yourself, you don’t particularly want accidents on a driveway greased with oil, fungus and moss, do you? Cleaner driveways mean healthier homes It’s also important to point out that all that dirt, mould, mildew and algae can even be a health risk. The most common health problems caused by this combination are respiratory in nature – and if it’s all over your driveway, chances are it will be all over your shoes… and all over your carpet. So just like you get your carpet professionally cleaned once in a while, it’s also really important to organise some driveway cleaning now and then. Property preservation and longevity Just like you clean your car to look after the paint job, the same is true of your driveway. Your home is your most valuable asset, and a properly looked after driveway will simply last decades and decades before needing to be completely re-done. Further preservation of your driveway can be obtained by applying a sealing or coating, creating a barrier that will keep your homefront in pristine condition and easier to maintain

Pressure Cleaning

What are the dangers of pressure cleaning?

Highly effective, potentially dangerous High-pressure cleaners are highly efficient at cleaning and removing stains from driveways to bricks. Anything from oil stain or paint removal, to gutter and roof cleaning jobs, can benefit from a high- pressure cleaning service. Pressure cleaners are versatile and offer a great range of solutions for both home and business cleaning tasks. While it’s feasible to buy or hire a high-pressure water cleaner system for your cleaning tasks, it’s good to remember that the cleaning system is, in fact, dangerous when not used correctly, or used by someone inexperienced. There are many dangers of using high-pressure cleaners when you haven’t previously received safety training in how to use high-pressure tools. It’s best to take the risk seriously and enlist the help of a professional to get the job done in a safe and effective manner. Risks are for real Pressure washers use either a gas hose or electric motor to boost water pressure anywhere from 30 to 80 times higher than a normal washer. That’s one powerful cleaner. While extremely good at making cleaning tasks a breeze, you need to consider possible risks when using a pressure system. Potential damage can range from bruises to laceration, skin damage, and eye damage when the spray is misdirected. Thousands of people are admitted to hospital each year as a result of pressure water usage – a shocking statistic considering that the majority of these injuries could have been avoided by appropriate training or use of professional services. Potential injury risk can even range as far as electrocution. When customers don’t take the risk seriously, or treat these tools as toys, accidents are bound to occur. Safe to say, it’s best to hire a professional for high-pressure cleaning services. When selecting a company for your high-pressure cleaning job, what you want to look for is a reputable company that is both reliable and highly experienced in these tasks.
