Driveways and concrete surfaces like patios and sidewalks take a lot of abuse from vehicles, rain, sun and other weather conditions. Keeping these areas clean can greatly enhance the overall visual appeal of your home in Gloucester and Mathew, VA.
While you can use a garden hose and scrubbing brush, professional pressure washing offers faster, more thorough cleaning.
Over time your concrete and driveway can become discolored with various contaminants.

Dirty and stained sidewalks and driveways can discourage potential buyers from viewing your home online or from walking-in to see your listing. Having a clean driveway and concrete is especially important in neighborhoods with a HOA as it maintains the perceived value of your property.
