Large areas cleaned in a jiffy.
Pressure cleaning concrete, the plain grey stuff is usually considered a big job. Concrete looks great when new and is very cost affective when laying very large areas for car parks and very large driveways and that’s probably why there is always so much of the stuff around to clean. Concrete cleaning large areas can be daunting! Because of its light colour concrete can become very unsightly very quickly given the right conditions. Concrete can be very porous and harbours moisture and dirt promoting the growth of mould. Because of its deep pours high pressure cleaning alone will not bring back concretes original new appearance unless a special treatment is used in conjunction with the pressure cleaning process.
Concrete cleaning for Power Wash Australia is straight forward because we have the right power washing equipment. High powered commercial pressure cleaners accompanied by enviro friendly biodegradable concrete cleaning treatments are the only sure means of removal. Another difficulty related to concrete cleaning is the physical conditioning of an individual to handle large projects like cleaning concrete driveways.
Hard work for the amateur.
If all of this is starting to sound like anything but fun, then you are starting to get the picture of what it takes to clean concrete. That is why it's better to avoid this type of DIY project. That is unless you just like hard work and you've got professional pressure cleaning equipment lying around or don't mind dumping a few hundred bucks on hiring the equipment and buying the cleaners to do it yourself. Otherwise, you should contact a professional who is properly equipped and has the experience and training to do the job and save you the time and effort.
You should consider all of the things described above and also the amount of time it will take to do this type of chore before jumping on a concrete cleaning job yourself.

Additional Services and Tips
Water alone won’t get it clean!
House washing cladding be it metal, timber or PVC is a simple 4 step process if you intend on using a small pressure cleaner.
It’s usually mould and mildew that needs to be removed from your cladding and to inhibit its re growth we use a special treatment.
Small pressure cleaners can be deadly on concrete.
Concrete cleaning is by far one of the most difficult tasks a DIY home owner has to encounter.
The porous nature of concrete makes it almost impossible to clean without the proper equipment and in most cases; the area that has to be cleaned is a large driveway. This means days of bending over with a domestic pressure cleaner because they just don’t have the power to clean unless you hold it 50mm from the ground and the closer you hold it the smaller the cleaning area becomes. At this distance the contact pressure is deadly and will literally carve lines in your concrete if you’re not careful.
Why seal your driveway?
Sealing plain grey concrete is a waste of money! Why do I say this?
Unlike stencilled or stamped concrete plain grey concrete has no colour to protect. On the other hand stencilled, stamped or coloured concrete needs a barrier between it and your car or foot traffic and a couple of coats of decorative sealer will do the trick. If you don’t maintain your patterned driveway with sealer the chances are that eventually the colour will wear off in patches and will need open heart surgery to make it look good again.
