Driveway and Patio Maintenance

Many people overlook cleaning and maintaining their driveway, as well as other exterior hard surfaces such as patios and pathways. In only a few years of neglect these surfaces can quickly become covered with weeds or suffer from a build up of moss and algae. A drive or patio like this can be unsightly, or even dangerous if it has become slippery.

A.E. Mackintosh Cleaning Services offers an industrial standard solution to this problem for the domestic market:

  • High pressure – Industrial standard equipment.
  • Makes the dirtiest of surfaces look like new!
  • Whirl-a-way attachment means all mess is contained under cover.
  • Jets angled to clean and remove just the top layer of sand from between the blocks.

Our range of treatments and products are specifically designed to keep your paving clean and well maintained, looking at its best. Regular saturation can erode the foundation of your paved surface, and over time can lead to paving failure! That is why we reccommend a thorough treatment of sealant to protect it for years to come.

In order to protect and preserve that pristine finish for as long as possible we recommend  Resiblock, the number one product on the market for this application. It has been used in a variety of commercial situations from airport runways to pedestrian footpaths. Now becoming more popular, is an affordable version of Resiblock to fit a wide range of domestic applications. It is an effective way to protect block paviers, patio slabs of all kinds, or even different types of stone.

Blocks, as well as the sand on a driveway, are pourous by nature which means it will hold the damp thus allowing moss and weeds to quickly develop. A good sealant prevents this and offers a number of benefits:

  • Protects against staining from oil, diesel, and food etc.
  • Prevents weed and grass growth.
  • Binds sand to block, forming a flexible coating.
  • Improves resistance to tyre marks.
  • Enhances the look of the paving.

This gives the whole surface strength helping to prevent paving failure! In addition, rainwater is not allowed to soak through and erode the foundation beneath which can cause a drive to move and distort over time. Instead water runs off the surface helping to lengthen the life of this investment.
