pressure washing cheltenham


On most modern estates through out the uk, rendered buildings are becoming a common site. Previously almost all houses that were built were done so using brick and left this way, now building companies are trying to make every house look individual and in doing so are putting a rendered finish on some. The pictures provided above of render cleaning in Gloucester show the types of the dirt that can be expected.


Your home is the normally the biggest cost of your life, you spend most of your time in or around it, its where you raise your family and live. Is it not common sense to keep it looking at its best and to keep up to date with maintenance. With render being a more common finish all of the time, this is now part of the maintenance of a house.

Leaving it can make your house look unsightly which can negatively affect the the valuation of your house. Leaving this even longer can actually damage the render, if moss and algae are allowed to grow on the surface this can prematurely “rot” the minerals in the render. If left to freeze and expand can blow the surface off the render, which in turn can then be a breeding space for more moss…and so the cycle begins again.


The way we clean your render depends on quite a few factors, some of these being;

  • How dirty the render is

  • Access in and around the building

  • How quickly the building needs to be clean

  • If chemicals can be used on site

  • Plant life in the area

  • If it is a pedestrian area


These are just some of the factors that have to be taken into account if you need your render cleaning.


Don’t think that your render can simply be cleaned with a pressure washer, this will cause damage that is very hard to repair.

Patio and Driveway cleaning in Gloucester, Cheltenham and Stroud

Have you looked at your driveway recently and just thought that it looks a bit aged, unkempt and dare I say it, unloved? maybe as you drive home from work you just feel that your home has lost its kerb appeal? 

One reason that many homeowners put off cleaning their driveways is because they don’t have the time, and if you haven’t got the right tools cleaning your driveway can be an extremely time consuming task for a busy homeowner.

One benefit to cleaning your driveway or having your driveway cleaned is that the cleaner your driveway is the cleaner your house will become. As we enter our homes we are picking up the dirt from the driveway and traipsing it into our homes. Although some may be rubbed off on the doormat as we enter the house a lot will be taken through the home as we go upstairs to change, to the bathroom or to the lounge to relax. Through having your driveway cleaned you are removing the built up dirt from the entrances of your home or property and preventing them from being transferred into your home.

We all want our homes to look the smartest on the streets and we all crave that kerb appeal, cleaning your driveway can really help as a clean path and driveway at the front of your home creates a fantastic first impression.

If you are looking to have your driveway cleaned in Gloucester, Cheltenham Stroud or the surrounding areas why not give us a call, we would be only too happy to help!
