5 Reasons it’s Worth it to Power Wash Your Driveway

Is it really that important to keep your driveway clean? There are plenty of people who would say no. At Hydro Tek we encourage our clients to think hard about the benefits of power washing their driveways on a regular basis. Here are five reasons it’s worth it. If you need advice on the right hot or cold pressure washer then we are here to help.

  1. Cleaning your driveway can prevent damage
  2. If you clean your driveway with a pressure washer on a regular basis, then you can prevent the growth of algae, mold, and moss. If any of these substances are allowed to grow, they can result in significant damage that results in costly repairs. Regular washing can prevent them from growing or, if they do begin to grow, can get rid of them before they cause serious damage.

  3. A pressure washer provides fast and effective cleaning
  4. When you use a hot water pressure washer to clean your driveway, it will be cleaned fast and thoroughly. For example, compare a pressure washer with a hose. It can take forever, especially for those with large driveways. A pressure washer gets the job done correctly within minutes and uses much less water to do so.

  5. Your driveway will look brand new
  6. When you deep clean your driveway, you can restore it to its original appearance. If it has been awhile since you have washed your driveway, then it is likely that grime and dirt have built up. It may seem that this is just normal wear and tear that happens over time, but the truth is that a simple cleaning could restore your driveway to look brand new.

  7. You can skip the chemicals
  8. If you want to get your driveway as clean as you can with your average garden hose, you are going to need a lot of tough, chemical cleaners – and you still won’t get the results you’d get from using a pressure washer. What’s more, you don’t need chemicals with a pressure washer – all it takes is water in most cases. If your driveway has a lot of mold or mildew, then you may want a cleaner but there are biodegradable options that will get the job done.

  9. You’ll be improving your home’s curb appeal
  10. When you or a guest drives up to your home, the driveway is one of the first things they see. You may not think about it much, because you drive on it every day, but if your driveway is old and grimy, it could be leaving a bad impression on those who visit. You will be surprised by how much better your house looks when it’s the backdrop for a newly cleaned driveway.

  • Advantages of a Hot Water Pressure Washer

    Simply by heating up the water, a hot water pressure washer delivers dramatically improved cleaning power compared to a cold water machine. Hot water pressure washers are especially useful for cleaning sticky, greasy, or oily surfaces, because they will loosen the dirt much faster without the large amounts of soap, detergent, or other cleaning chemicals that must be used with a cold water system.

  • Hot Water Pressure Washer Applications

    A hot water pressure washer is essential for any cleanup job involving a sticky, greasy, or oily mess, as well as for applications where a surface must be sanitized. With a variety of models available, including self-contained mobile units with gas, diesel, or electric power, Hydro Tek hot water pressure washers can go anywhere and clean anything. Some common applications include heavy equipment cleaning, vehicle cleaning, graffiti removal, restaurant hood vent cleaning, and livestock facility cleaning.

Quality & Innovation Since 1985

From simple beginnings in 1985, Hydro Tek has grown to become the most trusted name in the pressure washer manufacturing industry.

How did we do it? By continually focusing on quality and reliability as the key to customer satisfaction, and by incorporating the latest technologies into our design and manufacturing processes.

By 1991, we were using computer-aided drafting systems to refine our product designs and improve efficiency. In 1997, we brought the power of computers to the shop floor by incorporating laser-cutting and other CNC manufacturing machinery, and in 2001 we began focusing on improving efficiency through the latest manufacturing techniques. The end result has been superior products delivered at a superior value to our customers. Through the next decade, we look forward to fulfilling our vision of making our products the "obvious choice" for all your industrial and commercial cleaning needs.
