What Are the Ins and Outs of Pressure Washing?
Pressure washing is the use of high-pressure water to blast away built-up dirt, grime, and muck. The water is pressurized anywhere from 750 to 30,000 psi, depending on what is being washed.
Depending on how stubborn the surface is, the stains to be removed, and the overall condition of the driveway will determine the method used to clean it off. For instance, getting rid of mildew will require a different combination of water pressure and chemicals used in comparison to the removal of old oil stains.
Pressure washing a driveway is not something you need to commit to every month of the year. It is recommended that you pressure wash your house every 6 to 12 months. On average, a driveway should be pressure washed once a year. At Mobile Magic, we can do it all!
Why Should I Pressure Wash My Driveway?
Pressure washing may seem like something niche in the grand scheme of home management. You have probably seen online videos of driveways being transformed from black and brown to a sparkling tan, but having a clean driveway is not always about the aesthetic.
There are real safety concerns when it comes to the maintenance of your driveway. By keeping up with pressure washing your driveway, you can avoid some long-term dangers that will break your heart and your bank account.
Benefits of pressure washing can include:
- Prevention of mildew and mold
- Limit weed growth in between the cracks of your driveway
- Remove tough stains
- Increase driving safety
- Environmentally friendly
While some of these points may seem quite obvious (removing stains, preventing mildew and mold), others are benefits many might not consider when choosing to pressure wash. For instance, safer driving conditions might be something we think about when driving on a highway or a back road.
However, your driveway is just as important for your safety. By eliminating mildew and mold, you are allowing your tires to grip the driveway more securely and, in turn, allowing for a safer entry and exit from your residence. This is especially important in the rainy and winter weather months.
While limiting weeds is a plus for pressure washing, that doesn’t mean we want to kill your lovely grass and flowerbeds! It is important that our customers know we use 100% biodegradable chemicals that save the environment from damage. If you have further questions about what chemicals we use in our services, please feel free to contact us!
