Frequently Asked Questions

the Rutland Driveway Cleaning Company Frequently Asked QuestionsHow long will it take?

Using our professional 20hp Honda powered pressure washer at 4000 psi and delivering water at 21 ltr/min together with our flat surface cleaner it takes a fraction of the time it would if you were using a domestic pressure washer. Standard size driveways and patios can normally be completed in a day but a follow-up visit will normally be required to re-sand block paving or to apply sealers.

Major weed growth will need a separate visit about 10 -14 days before cleaning to apply a weedkiller.

The driveway or patio can usually be used the same day except where a driveway has been sealed when vehicles should normally be kept off the drive for 24 hours.

How much will it cost?

In all cases we need to undertake a full assessment of the area to be cleaned before giving a quotation. This assessment allows us to give you an accurate quote based on your particular needs.

Can oil stains be removed?

Most of the time the answer is yes. Sometimes where the oil stain has been there a long time there may well be residual staining. We can discuss this with you during our assessment and explain the options available to you.

Do I need to be in when the work is done?

No – we just need access to a cold water tap. Ideally this will be an outside tap but we do carry a selection of adaptors should the only supply be an inside tap. This again is something we can cover as part of our assessment and quotation.

Will you leave a mess?

Any mess will be kept to a minimum and all surrounding areas will be washed down prior to completion. Any waste produced during the cleaning process will be taken away. We will leave your home clean and tidy.

Are you insured?

Yes – we are fully insured for £5million for public liability and are also insured for work in progress.
