High pressure cleaners use a high pressure water spray to clean a variety of surfaces. They wash away dirt, grime, mould, mildew, grease, oil, and even stubborn chewing gum residue. Your cleaner will usually assess the area and confirm exactly what they can and can’t clean before they start. Here’s what you can expect from some of the most common high pressure cleaning services:Driveway pressure washing
Whether you have a concrete, asphalt, or gravel driveway, you’ll find it quickly gets dirty from dust, moss, bird droppings, and grease from cars. These stains can make your driveway very slippery, especially when wet (not to mention a bit yucky looking). Fortunately, driveway pressure washing every 6-12 months can help restore your driveway and keep it looking new for longer. Your cleaner will usually start with a pre-softwash treatment. Next they’ll clean the border with high pressure water from their gurney or pressure washing machine, before cleaning the entire driveway. After a good rinse, they may use a post-softwash treatment, before doing a final rinse. Paths, patios, & pavement pressure washing
If your garden paths, patio areas, or pavement are looking dull, mossy, or mouldy, high pressure washing will blast away the grime in no time. Your cleaner will clear away any items near or on the surfaces, before pressure washing your tiles, pavers, and concrete to remove any marks. They’ll carefully avoid spraying areas that shouldn’t get wet (and delicate things that can’t withstand high-pressure). If there are any stubborn marks, they may use a brush and treatment to thoroughly clean the area before rinsing clean with high pressure water.Wall, fence & balcony pressure washing
Brick walls, rendered walls, stone retaining walls, and even balcony areas can all benefit from regular high pressure washing services. This can remove streaky marks, dust, bird poo, and even wasp nests. Your cleaner will be careful to avoid any delicate surfaces that may crumble or crack under pressure. This includes areas around doors/windows and any wood that may swell. If cleaning doors and windows, your cleaner will ensure a second person is inside to monitor the situation and catch any drips/sprays with old towels.Roof pressure washing
All roofs age over time and get dirty - whether they’re tiled, Colorbond, steel, or iron. But accumulated dirt and debris (such as algae) can make your roof age faster, plus retain heat and reduce solar reflectance, heating up your home. High pressure cleaning is the simplest way to make your home look better, cool efficiently, and help your roof last longer. Your high pressure cleaning professional will use a wide angle jet to avoid excessive direct pressure on seals and minimise the chances of leakage. They’ll use different methods and treatments, depending on the material of your roof. Harsh chemicals can corrode roofing materials, so they’ll be sure to choose a milder chemical for your roof. Once the roof is clean, they’ll usually also wash down your drains and gutters to remove debris and ensure there are no blockages.
