Hard Surface Cleaning

Hard Surface Cleaning

Driveways, patios, carparks, playing surfaces, exterior building facades, roofs, commercial asbestos roofing, natural stone, render, cladding,
deep cleans to internal hard flooring such as tile & grout, concrete & coated concrete

We provide solutions and methods based on the material to be cleaned and height in which cleaning is to take place taking into account the sensitivity of the surrounding environment.
 
Methods available:
 
  • Pressure washing
  • Doff steam cleaning (this is basically jet washing with steam at low pressure)
  • Chemical cleaning / soft washing
 
Pressure washing: 
We use market leading industrial grade pressure washers which are capable of producing near boiling water to increase efficiency, produce a higher level of cleanliness, kill off biological spores inhibiting future regrowth and aid surface drying time.
We are able to conduct cleaning 120m away from our van mounted equipment which can be positioned 150m away from a water source resulting in a total distance from water source to cleaning site of almost 300m.
Our high pressure pump unlike typical pumps within the industry can draw and pump water from rivers/water ways, ponds, lakes and marinas where environmental legislation permits.
We are licenced to draw up to 20,000ltrs of water per day from the above sources, this enables us to conduct cleaning in areas absent of a mains water supply but in close proximity to a body of water.
We can run multiple operators on each machine increasing efficiency.
Depending on the material to be cleaned, its location and design we can clean up to 2000m² per day
 
Our main USP is our waste water vacuum recovery and recycling system which recovers up to 95% of the waste water, dirt and debris produced while cleaning at a distance of 60m from the worksite. This system enables us to recycle filter and reuse waste water reducing mains consumption running almost completely independent from a permanent water source. The benefits include increased efficiency, reduced downtime and disturbance to the end user, aids surface drying time, allows cleaning to be conducted in close proximity to environmentally sensitive areas, reduces the dirt contamination or surrounding surfaces, eliminates the risk of blocked drains and water logging of surrounding areas.
 
Doff steam cleaning:
Doff steam cleaning is essentially pressure washing with steam at low pressures, it is significantly less aggressive than pressure washing minimising surface degradation. The method is intended to be used for cleaning material not suited to pressure washing such as softer natural stonework, decretive and detailed stone engravings, monuments, heritage and listed surfaces, removing graffiti, chewing gum, paint and coatings without the use of abrasives. Doff steam cleaning kills of harmful bacteria’s and pathogens sanitising surfaces. The majority of “dirt” contaminants other than traffic film tends to be biological growth, doff cleaning kills off biological growth and inhibits future regrowth when compared to other methods where spores invisible to the naked eye can remain and reproduce.
 
Chemical cleaning/soft washing:
Soft washing/chemical cleaning is fairly self-explanatory and like doff steam cleaning is intended for use on softer more sensitive materials especially where it is essential to preserve decorative details/engravings. Soft washing is the perfect method for cleaning sensitive renders such as K-rend which are extremely susceptible to green and red algae growth and cannot be pressure washed due to adverse ware/damage/degradation. In most cases the chemicals can be applied via spray equipment from ground level to a height of approx. 10m reducing the need for costly access equipment. Soft washing tends to be less disruptive to the end user as the equipment isn’t driven by noisy engines.
