Block Paving Cleaned, Sanding & Sealing
Block Paving is the most commonly used materiel for most driveways in the UK, made up of many hundreds of blocks in a variety of different colours block paved drives can add huge kerb appeal to your home. Block paved driveways look brilliant when first installed, but during a full season of summer and winter grime, weeds & algae can start to build up on the surface leaving driveways to look a little dull and dirty looking.
When you notice the driveway starting to look this way it might be a good time to look for a professional cleaning service to such as our selves to remove those unwanted nasties from your once lovely looking driveway, bringing back those beautiful vibrant coloured pavers hidden amongst the surface dirt.
( Re- Sanding ) After your block paving has been professionally cleaned the process will not only remove all the weeds and grime but will also remove the old sand between the joints. Re- sanding a newly cleaned driveway is a very important part of the process, its for this reason we include supplying new sand and sweeping it into the joints in all our quotes.
Sanding can only take place when block pavers are completely dry we usually return 1 to 2 days after cleaning the drive giving the blocks plenty of time to dry, obviously this is weather permitting and may take a little longer if waiting for a dry day suitable for re-sanding.
Leaving a driveway un sanded for a long period of time will cause block pavers to sink and will allow weeds and algae to return much quicker due to leaving all the joints exposed to the elements.
Patio Cleaning Sutton Coldfield
Flag stone patios are the most common type of patios most people opt for when having a new patio installed, flag stones commonly known as slabs are easily maintain and a very cost effect martial for patio areas. mention slabs are most people think of boring plain slabs that council typically use, the truth is flag stones have come along way over the years and are now available in a wide range of different colours, textures and patterns and when instated correctly can add kerb appeal to any home.
Keeping your patio areas clean of grime and algae is just as important as keeping your driveway clean, patios are fantastic places to relax during the summer months many family's enjoys having BBQs and get togethers, don't let a dirty patio ruin the look of your garden. ATD Cleaning Services can clean and restore your patio ready for summer.
Using a 22inch flat surface cleaner we can quickly away any surface grime leaving your patio looking fresh and clean, after we have cleaned your flag stones we will then apply a chemical quickly removing any lichen stains, using water alone with a DIY pressure washer will not remove lichen stains and without removing these stains your patio may still look dirty.
Natural Stone, these stones make for some of the most amazing looking patios, each stone has its own unique shade and colour allows builders to create many different patterns and styles when instilling a natural stone patio. Although these stones are very nice at the same time they certainly don't come cheap setting you back £1000s for a medium to large sized patio.
Don't let your expensive natural stone patios get over run with dirt and lichen stains, ATD Cleaning Services can achieve some fantastic results when cleaning and restoring the stones leaving your patio once again looking like it did when it was first installed.
The best way to keep your patio stone clean is to opt for a clean once a year, this doesn't need to be expensive as you may think when taking into account the money it cost to have one of these beautiful patios installed then keeping them clean doesn't come close.
Another way to add extra protection to your patio is opting for a sealer to be applied after cleaning, there are some cheaper brand of sealers on the market that offer very little protection to your stone. Good quality natural stone sealer cost around £65-£70 per tin, these sealers offer much better protection and can last anywhere from 3-5y years of protection.
Imprinted Concrete Cleaning Sutton Coldfield
ATD Cleaning Services use professional equipment to clean and restore pattern imprinted concrete. Through dirt and grime build up, vehicle use and wear & tear patterned concrete will lose its vibrant colour leaving the concrete exposed to the elements causing further damage to the area. Steps we take to clean and restore pattern imprinted driveways and patios.
Step 1, Clean the area with zero chemicals using a specialized 20inch flat surface rotary cleaner, the cleaning process will remove any dirt, weeds, moss or algae living on the surface. Any oil stains left after cleaning can also be treated using pattern imprinted concrete oil stain remover.
Step 2, We then colour match the area, once we have found the correct colour pigment this is then mixed with a high quality imprinted concrete sealer. This sealer is then applied evenly across the surface restoring the colour and protecting the area from the elements for much longer.
Step 3, This step is mainly a maintenance process, after the driveway or patio as been cleaned and sealed its is then beneficial to have a general wash yearly this will protect your investment and keep the surface dirt, moss and algae free.
Decking Cleaning Sutton Coldfield
ATD Cleaning Services can also clean & treat decking, cleaning decked areas is very popular during spring and summer months. Wood tends to attract dirt and algae a little quicker then some of the other exterior surfaces mentioned above, when cleaning decking the process is a little different to cleaning standard driveways and patios wood is a much softer martial and can be damaged if cleaned with to much pressure.
Cleaning decking also requires a little skill with the pressure washing lance, using long continues strides along the decking will ensure it will be left streak free after cleaning. I always advise after the decking has been cleaned and treated its then beneficial to apply a good quality decking oil.
Decking oil cost around £25-£30 per 5 litre tin and cover upto 20sq metres per tin, 2 coats of oil are needed to fully penetrate the wood and give the best possible protection. You can choose the level of service you would on your decking making it easier to match your budget.
1. Bronze clean ( gentle pressure wash )
2. Silver clean ( gentle pressure wash & algae treatment )
3. Gold clean ( gentle wash, algae treatment & decking oil treatment )
Some newer, or well maintained decking may only need a bronze clean, a gentle pressure wash and the boards are brought back to life. Decking that's a few years or more old and have pretty much been left exposed to the elements may benefit more from a gold clean to truly bring them back.
