What type of driveway cleaning service do you need?
When choosing a driveway cleaning service, you should consider what type of service you need. Do you need a one-time clean, or are you looking for recurring service?
One-time services are excellent for those who only need their driveway cleaned once in a while. Recurring services are perfect for those who want to keep their driveway looking its best all year round.
What type of driveway do you have
The next thing to consider is what type of driveway you have. Is it concrete, asphalt, or something else? Different driveway materials require different cleaning methods. For example, concrete driveways can be pressure washed, while asphalt driveways should not be pressure washed as it can damage the surface.
What is your budget is
Of course, you’ll also need to consider your budget for a driveway cleaning service. Prices will vary depending on the size of your driveway, the type of service you need, and other factors.
Do they have good reviews?
When considering different driveway cleaning services, be sure to read online reviews. This will give you a good idea of what others have thought about the quality of their service.
Get a free estimate
Once you’ve narrowed down your choices, be sure to get a free estimate from each driveway cleaning service. This will help you compare prices and find the best option for your needs.
Does your driveaway have nasty stains?
If your driveway has terrible stains, you’ll want to ensure the driveway cleaning service you choose can remove them. Ask if they have a money-back satisfaction guarantee so that you can be sure you’re getting what you pay for.
Ask what is included with their service
When you’re getting an estimate, ask what is included in their service. For example, some driveway cleaning services will only power wash your driveway. Others may also include sealing or staining your driveway as part of their service.
Get it in writing
Once you’ve chosen a driveway cleaning service, be sure to get everything in writing. This will help avoid misunderstandings about what is included in their service and your expectations.
Ask how long it will take
Finally, be sure to ask how long the driveway cleaning will take. This way, you can plan accordingly and ensure there is no disruption to your daily routine.
When it comes time to hire a driveway cleaning service, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. First and foremost, the company should have insurance and be bonded. This protects both you and the crew from any potential accidents or damage that may occur while they are on your property.
You also want to make sure that the service has experience with driveways- many companies offer other services such as window washing or gutter cleaning but may not have the necessary equipment or expertise to clean your driveway correctly. Happy hunting!

Very interesting post, thanks for sharing! I have never thought about hiring someone to clean my driveway before, but I bet it looks amazing afterwards! I would actually love to get my own pressure washer so we could do it (among other things) ourselves.

We see signs around here about people advertising their driveway cleaning services but if you have a pressure washer you might as well save the cash and do it yourself

Good advice! My aunt and uncle had a gravel driveway, that they tried to do themselves, what a mess! Glad they finally called in pros to do it.
