Normally we can clean an area of up to 400 square metres in a day depending on the condition of the paving. Your paving will need up to 48hrs to dry before we can come back to brush in the kiln dried Dan Sand if its a block paved driveway. If you have opted to have a sealer applied this will be done after we have completed the sanding of the area.
If your just having your paving cleaned you can walk on it and park your cars on it straight away, but if you choose to have your paving sealed we recommend you don’t walk on it for at least 2hrs and do not park vehicles on it for at least 24hrs to give the sealer time to set.
Unfortunately when you are working with dirt and high pressure water there is always going to be some mess although it is kept to a minimum. Rest assured at Seal & Cleaned we never leave your property dirty, after the work is completed every thing is rinsed down and left clean and tidy.
No, unfortunately sealing only slows the process down, typically if you have an area just cleaned and rid of weeds and grass they could grow back within 6 – 10 weeks. However when sealed and treated a driveway or patio should stay weed free for at least 1-5 years depending on the environment you live in and how the paving was laid in the first place.
The life expectancy of the sealer varies for several reasons, firstly the quality of the sealant used and secondly how much in the way of overhanging tree branches and foliage is adjacent to the surface, also on what traffic your paving is receiving. Dependent on these factors the sealant can last from 2 – 8 years and sometimes even longer.
There is no problem cleaning and sealing your paving of any age , the older the paving the more porous the surface is , although more sealant is required, it is good for old paving in our experience they come up so well after cleaning and sealing.
