Powerful Patio And Driveway Cleaning London
Driveway and Patio Cleaning London
It’s a typical damp London morning and it rained overnight. You’re setting off for a quick jog with the dog before work in spite of the weather (good for you!). You step out the door and go down the steps, ready to hit your stride but your trainers hit a patch of something slippery – it could be moss, it could be dead leaves, it could be oil or it could be dog crap – and Fido gives the lead a hefty tug and the wrong moment. Your foot slides out from underneath you, you lose your balance and down you go. Bruises at the very least. In the worst case, this could mean a twisted ankle or even (if you’re in the older age bracket), a hip fracture.
The way to avoid this rather painful scenario isn’t to give up exercising in the mornings or to walk everywhere. Even if you did that, you’d still have to walk on that slippery whatever it was to the garage or to the garden gate. The real problem is what’s on the pathways – or what’s on the deck, the steps, the patio or any similar hard surface outdoors. Even if your driveways aren’t slick with leaves, moss and mud, they still don’t quite look their best if they’re covered with grime. You want to be able to make the most of your outdoor living area and use it for entertaining without apologising for the mess, after all.
Let’s not even start on the health and safety issues and problems if the hard outdoor areas around your workplace are slippery and untidy. That’s a real hazard that needs to be dealt with.
The solution to ugly, unsightly and dangerous grime on patios, driveways, steps and paths in or around your home or business is to call in the London driveway and patio cleaning team from Anyclean to deal with the problem for you. We use high-pressure hoses to remove grime and dirt of all types from driveways and similar areas, leaving your outdoor paved areas clean and safe – all without using strong toxins.
Don’t put it off if you know that the paths around your London home or business are becoming an ugly hazard. Call in Anyclean’s London driveway and patio cleaning services today.
Anyclean’s London Driveway And Patio Cleaning Services
For almost 20 years, Anyclean has been in the business of cleaning London homes and workplaces, and driveway and patio washing has been part of this for quite some time. For our London driveway and patio cleaning work, we use high-pressure hoses (jet washing) to remove grime from all your outdoor surfaces that are prone to collecting grime, moss, lichen and the like, including:
- tennis courts
- barbecue areas
- brick paths
- outdoor living areas
- decks and verandas
All of our work is carried out safely and efficiently, and no matter what you want us to clean as part of our London driveway and patio cleaning services, you’ll be covered by our 100% satisfaction guarantee and by our full insurance cover. Our attention to detail and our dedication to customer satisfaction have always been hallmarks of Anyclean’s work.
We are aware that because of location, shading and local microclimates, some pathways and driveways are more prone to collecting leaves or moss than others. This is why we make it possible for you to arrange for regularly scheduled driveway and patio cleans – usually once a year or twice a year. This means that you don’t have to worry about remembering to clean the old autumn leaves and lichen off the patio at the end of winter (or whenever you want the job done) – we’ll remember it for you. We’ll save you heaps of time and effort as well as making the exterior of your London home or business look better.
However, if the regularly scheduled patio or pathway cleaning doesn’t sound like that it’s for you, then you can call in Anyclean’s London driveway and patio cleaning team just whenever you think that your driveway, etc. has become anything but a rolling stone (i.e. it’s been gathering moss).
We cater to the needs of residential customers and commercial customers all through the Greater London Metropolitan Area – if it’s inside the ring of the M25, we’ll send out our driveway and patio cleaning teams to deal with it!
The Green Way To Deal With Moss And Lichen
A number of London driveway and patio cleaning companies prefer to use strong chemicals to remove moss and lichen from driveways, steps and the like. In the past, when it was more widely available, chlorine bleach was a very popular solution for removing moss and lichen. Even today, some companies are still pushing the benefits of various chemicals that kill these living organisms (moss is technically a plant; lichen is a combination of algae and fungi).
At Anyclean, we say no to using strong chemicals such as chlorine bleach to clean driveways, even if it does kill moss and lichen. These chemicals can often damage the finish of patios and the like, especially those made from wood or brick. Then there’s the issue of what happens when the chemicals go beyond the pathway itself. It’s got to go somewhere, and if that somewhere is the stormwater drain or your garden, it will go on killing plants, fungi and algae… which is not a responsible thing to do for the environment. It’s also downright hazardous for our workers to handle and spray around the place – and we train our cleaning professionals to a very high standard, so we want to keep them safe and healthy as well as keeping all of our customers happy.
It is possible to clean away moss, algae and lichen with more environmentally friendly substances such as vinegar or borax – but even then, this won’t actually remove the moss and the like; it will just kill it.
Because we take sustainability seriously in our London driveway and patio cleaning business, we use high-pressure washing systems for cleaning driveways, patios, pathways and the like. A powerful jet of ordinary water will blast away stubborn moss and lichen – and it will also remove all the other kinds of dirt and grime on your pathway or steps such as mud, dead leaves and other debris (yes, including dog dirt!). This other dirt is something that chemical methods of cleaning pathways just don’t deal with.
Using high-pressure hoses also means that we can clean more than just pathways and patios. After all, other surfaces suffer from lichen growth. We can also clean walls and even roofs with our high-pressure washing systems – using just plain water every time. The only demand that our pressure washing systems make on the environment is the energy requirements needed to power them, plus a bit of heat if we’re working during winter to prevent the water from freezing and damaging our equipment.
Don’t run the risk of a fall caused by moss and lichen on the pathway, or put up with the ugly appearance of grime on your driveway. Call in Anyclean’s London driveway and patio cleaning team to deal with the problem the environmentally friendly way.
Customer Feedback About Our Patio And Driveway Cleaning Services
“After my Mum had a bad fall on the steps, we knew that something had to be done, and a workmate recommended your company, so we gave you guys a go. We are very pleased with the results. It’s not just the back steps that look better and safer now, but all of the path. And it’s good to know that the pathways are safer for Mum and she can stay in the home she loves.”—Gwen P.
