Keeping your driveway clean and properly maintained can give your home a beautiful curb appeal that your family will enjoy and that people who pass by your home will enjoy. One way to keep it as clean as possible by removing dirt and stains that might settle onto the surface from vehicles is by using driveway pressure cleaning Jacksonville FL equipment that you can rent. You can also hire a company to come to your home to not only pressure wash the driveway but clean other details around the exterior of the home as well.
Begin by sweeping the driveway to remove any loose dirt and debris. A broom of any kind is usually suitable for this job, but an industrial broom tends to cover a larger surface area at one time so that you don't spend all day cleaning. Before you begin pressure cleaning, you need to place a protective barrier along the edges of the driveway so that the soap doesn't get into the ground. You should also protect your windows and doors by covering them with plastic just in case any pieces of debris get blown into them.
Make sure you read the instructions for how to properly operate the machine before you begin cleaning. Use a degreaser on the driveway so that it will be easier to clean grease stains from the surface. These stains are common on paved driveways, especially if this is where you park your vehicles if you don't have a garage. Even vehicles from visitors can leave behind small drops of oil or other liquids. Attach all of the tips and the hoses so that you can start cleaning with the soap and water. The equipment will have quite a bit of pressure, which is how it cleans the surface. Keep this in mind if you don't have the strength to hold the hose while cleaning. Rinse the driveway with water, sealing the surface for adding protection.
