While cleaning sidewalks and walkways is often a chore that goes overlooked, it is a crucial one to attend to if you want your home to leave a favorable impression. Your walkways are a subtle part of the first impression of your home you create. Make sure they are sparkling clean with our professional walkway cleaning services in New York.
Take a Walk
The walkways on a property include everything from the steps leading to your front door to ornamental paths winding through your landscaping. It is common for walkways to be made of concrete or cement, but sometimes they can be more ornamental, made of stone or an arrangement of pavers. Either way, it shouldn’t be a surprise that walkways see a lot of foot traffic.
Power Washing Your Walkways
Power washing uses a high-powered spray of water and detergents to thoroughly clean select surfaces. When used on walkways, it is important to find the right cleaning solution to produce a deep clean without killing the surrounding grass or flowers. It may also be necessary to incorporate gentle or even rigorous scrubbing to remove dirt, rust, paint, mold, or mildew.
Concrete is not impervious, however tough and durable it may be. Concrete is porous, so dirt and other debris can seek deeply into the surface. This is why it is so important to make regular walkway cleaning a priority, before harmful agents can cause staining. Having your walkways pressure washed can also make them safer places to walk.
Benefits of Cleaning Your Walkways
The most obvious benefit of washing your walkways is a boost in overall beauty and curb appeal. A good pressure wash can wash away evidence of foot traffic, fertilizer, and weeds, removing dirt that has been deeply ground into the concrete and stains from oil or grease. Even grime that is allowed to accumulate can be blown away in a matter of minutes. You’ll be surprised to see what a difference just a simple wash can make.
Giving your walkways a deep clean is also an important way to keep them healthy places to walk. Regular walkway cleaning inhibits mold and algae growth, meaning that visitors don’t have to breathe in fungal spores or slip on the slick surfaces such microbial agents foster.
