Driveway Cleaning & Renovation
Your driveway is the first thing people notice when visiting. Is it a welcoming and inviting sight? Don’t let weeds, moss and grime set a poor impression. As experts in weed control, we will deliver an exceptional service for all types of driveways. Whether it’s brick sets, block paving, concrete pavers or tarmac, let our friendly team take care of it for you.
Not only will we give an exceptional clean we also offer a longer term solution with our three phase cleaning process. We use an initial application of weed killer, followed by a biocidal wash to inhibit further growth of weeds and moss. For block paved driveways, this is followed up with a re-application of special, sterile kiln dried sand used to replace any displaced sand from in-between the joints of the driveway. For tarmac driveways we can repair any broken or cracked tarmac and then apply our "Back to Black" renovator paint and allow to dry.
Rest assured that all our products are both child and pet friendly and are designed for maximum results without being harmful to the environment.

Patio & Paving Cleaning
Everyone likes walking out onto a clean patio or paved area, whether you're entertaining friends and family with a BBQ or simply relaxing in your own private sanctuary. We want to help you do this. A dirty patio area can also be a dangerous one when the surfaces become wet and slippery during the winter months. Let us take care of it for you.
We use the most modern equipment on the market to reduce the mess caused by domestic jet washers. We pay particular attention to your flower beds and delicate plants and any splashes that do occur will be cleaned before completion of the work, guaranteed. All that will remain to be seen is an incredible clean area for you to love and enjoy.
If required, we can also include a pre-application weed killer to eliminate weeds before cleaning commences. We use Systemic chemicals, designed to kill the roots to ensure they never return. This is a very effective solution yet harmless to children and beloved pets.
If the pavers of your patio have loose pointing we also offer a low pressure cleaning. This technique is designed to minimise damage and further removal of pointing.
Leave the back work to us. We will remove and replace any garden pots and furniture before we start, although we are aware that older pots may suffer from hairline cracks due to the winter weather and become fragile. Speak with us of any concerns you may have. We cannot be held responsible for any breakages but we will always treat your property with the greatest of care.
Although domestic pressure washers are fine for a quick clean, pressure alone will not rid your patio of algae, lichen, fungi, moss, or mould as they are after all living spores and can only be removed by an application of algaecide, killing the spore before it is washed off.

Timber decking is as popular as ever, but the salt in the air of our coastal towns (Withernsea, Hornsea, Bridlington) can wreak havoc on timber decking. Cleaning timber decking is usually quite straightforward, although care must be taken to ensure that the use of any high pressure water washers does not damage the timber itself. This can lead to cracking and splitting, adding to the deterioration of the surface.
Once correctly cleaned and allowed to dry out properly, we can apply a whole variety of preservatives, varnishes, timber stains and even decking paint to change or enhance the appearance of your decking. “Permission to come aboard!”.

Soft Washing for Moss & Mould
The majority of "dirt and grime" on exterior hard surfaces is actually the build-up of biological growths such as algae, lichen, fungi, moss, or mould. This gives rise to the unsightly and often dangerous and damaging red, black, and green staining seen on walls, roofs, concrete, tarmac, block paving, timber decking, fences and sheds. By using the Soft washing equipment, we remove all contaminates and provide a protection to the surface to prevent regrowth as well as provide continued protection for many years to come. This technique can be used to clean all your exterior surfaces such as rendered walls, timber decking, fences, sheds, concrete & tarmac paths, drives, car parks, tennis courts, painted surfaces and roofs.
While brickwork is designed to withstand any kind of weather, its surface can become infected with displeasing black staining over time. High pressure washing will remove the stains however, brickwork is not designed to withstand high pressure over the brickworks lifespan as it can be extremely corrosive.
Soft washing the surface of the brick will kill mildew, algae, moss roots and other atmospheric infectants. Whereas pressure washing will only temporary clean the surface. The effects of a soft wash last longer than high pressure washing. Soft washing will also protect the joints and mortar avoiding weakness to the aging brickwork. Therefore soft washing is the best way to clean brickwork while protecting both appearance and structural integrity.

By removing the excess growth of moss via scraping. Once the roof has been scraped clean, a biocidal wash will be applied to kill the spores that grow into moss. Mother nature will do the rest. We recommend that a reapplication of the biocide within 18 months to prevent regrowth and maintain the roof's clean appearance.
