If your driveway is getting dingy, now is the time to wash it. Experts recommend washing it at least once a year. Summer makes this easy thanks to the warm weather. The most effective way to clean your driveway is with a power washer from your local equipment rental company. Here are a few reasons why.

Why Should You Power Wash Your Driveway?

1. Appearance

Your driveway is one of the first things people will see when they approach your home, and if it's clean it'll make a more positive impression. Pressure washing is the fastest way to get it clean, without scrubbing or using chemicals that could harm your yard. The washer is designed to produce a powerful jet of water that will scour away dirt in one pass, without damaging the concrete itself.

2. Prevention

The cracks collect dirt, then seeds get inside, and then the growing roots slowly push the concrete apart. Thoroughly washing out the cracks not only removes the plants that are already there but also clears out the dirt to keep new sprouts from starting.

3. Eco-Friendly

Pressure washing uses fresh water with no harsh cleaning chemicals that could flow into the soil or down a drain. This makes its environmental impact low. It's even more environmentally responsible to use a power washer from an equipment rental company than a hose. This is because the hose doesn't have the same forceful pressure, so it doesn't clean as effectively, and you'll end up using more water to do the same job.
