For proper maintenance of your concrete area, it is important that you have it cleaned regularly.
When concrete surfaces are left to the elements, over time they will succumb to nature. Central Florida’s warm, humid climate encourages the growth of plants, including creeping weeds that may present tripping hazards, or saplings that become lodged in cracks and slowly create large fissures. Tolley Concrete recommends a thorough pressure washing on a regular basis to remove dirt and debris and clear away vegetation.
Why You Should Hire a Pressure Washer
The benefit to hiring a professional pressure washer to clean your concrete surface is that you know the job will be done correctly and efficiently. You may wish to purchase a pressure washing machine yourself in order to save money on maintenance, but it can be time consuming and less thorough than if you invest in someone who specializes in this service.
Once you’ve found the right pressure washing company for the job, discuss with them the current condition of the surface, and how long it has been since it was last cleaned. Avoid costly future repairs caused by the growth of vegetation and moisture intrusion by having the concrete cleaned regularly, and after any sort of storm or event that results in dirt and debris being left behind. This is for safety purposes as well as proper maintenance.
What to Do After Cleaning
Concrete surfaces are made to withstand a great deal of abuse. Wear and tear from vehicles or foot traffic will eventually cause some damage to the sealer used on the concrete surface. Pressure washing will result in some degradation of the concrete sealer as well. That’s why after your regular pressure washing, it is a good time to call Tolley Concrete to come out and replace the sealer over your concrete. Keep your concrete in great shape for many years with regular cleaning and maintenance by Tolley Concrete.
