Pressure Washing your driveway can remove years of dirt and built-up grime from the surface, restoring it’s original appearance.

How Often Should You Pressure Wash Your Driveway?

Do you have large trees, shrubs or hedges that surround your property? If so, you driveway will need cleaning more frequently as the build-up of organic matter such as tree saps, pollen and leafs and twigs will happen relatively quickly and encourage the growth of moss and algae.

If your driveway is very shady with lots of mature tree or hedge cover it will grow algae and moss much faster than a surface exposed to the sun many hours of the day.

For properties with driveways that get bathed by the hot sun all day it can create a very undesirable environment for algae, moss and other organic growth but they can still collect dust, dirt, mud, oil and other contaminants.

Every 2-3 years is generally a good cycle for pressure washing an average driveway.

Can You Pressure Wash The Driveway On Your Own?

You certainly can. Pressure washers can be bought or rented at many local shops and then you just need some fuel, some gum-boots or rain pants, a water supply and several hours of your spare time!

What Type Of Stains Can Pressure Washing Remove?

Driveways can collect all kinds of dirt and grime and eventually stains develop from tree saps to automotive oils to chewing gum, dirt, mud, bird poop and more. All of these can all be removed using a pressure washer and the right detergents or degreasers on the driveway. In most cases degreasers and detergents aren’t necessary but they are available for really stubborn stains.

How Much Will It Cost To Clean Your Driveway?

Pressure washing a driveway is usually estimated and charged by the square foot. The price per square foot can vary depending on accessibility, the size of the driveway and also the material’s it is made from.


When you factor the cost of doing it yourself, hiring someone to come out once every two years and clean your driveway and concrete professionally isn’t such a bad idea. You can leave for work in the morning and come back to a bright and clean driveway that evening!
