Central Ohio’s Concrete and Flatwork Cleaning Experts!
The damage to driveways caused by dirt and mold is usually only on the surface, meaning that a well-done high-pressure clean is enough to return your driveway to its original pristine state. We’ve developed a two-step approach to pressure cleaning that’s guaranteed to leave your driveway looking drive-worthy. First, we cover the area with our bio-degradable mold killer which will clean without causing damage to the surface.
Next, we use commercial rotary machines for flat surfaces. These machines use less water than a handheld lance. However, the rotary cleaner can clean in about a third of the time. This means you get a better clean, save money because we get the job done faster, and we use significantly less water. Jobs completed with a rotary cleaner tend to have a better finish because the machine stops the “stripes” and striations caused by a lance.
We clean all sorts of driveway surfaces including aggregate, pebblecrete, coloured and plain concrete, pavers, bricks and tiles.
We also offer concrete driveway sealing to help extend the life of your driveway and increase the time between cleans.
Should I seal my Driveway or Sidewalks?
In a word: YES!
Sealing a driveway or paved area helps protect the surface. The best time to seal is when the paths are new. If you have a good relationship with your builder, ask to have your paths and driveways sealed before you take possession of the property. For established homes or businesses it is worth considering sealing after a thorough clean.
It is important to note that this is not driveway resurfacing but rather a sealing product designed to prolong the life and look of your brand new or recently cleaned driveway, pavement or concrete surface. This will help to reduce cleaning time, cost and essentially keep at bay the need to resurface your driveway in the future.
Benefits of Concrete Driveway Sealing
Putting a protective layer over the surface won’t stop the surface getting dirty. You may have been told that sealing will stop the surface getting dirty: this isn’t true. However, a sealed surface is easier to clean and will last better and look “newer” for longer. Effectively, the special pavement and concrete sealer we use, like for concrete driveway sealing in Columbus, will prevent water, car fluids, food etc from staining. This means that you won’t need to clean as often! For general maintenance, you might find that rinsing off your driveway with a garden hose will keep most of the dirt away. However, we do recommend a thorough pressure clean every couple of years.
Considerations for Concrete Sealing in Columbus, Ohio
No surface protection lasts forever. In the Central Oho Area, it is worth considering resealing about every 3 to 4 years. Another benefit of sealing is that the growth of mold is inhibited because sealing creates a moisture barrier on the surface.
The process for sealing is first to clean thoroughly and apply a mold treatment. Whatever is left on the surface will be sealed in, so you need to be happy that the surface being sealed is completely cleaned. We then leave the surface for a couple of days for it to be completely dry.
Our Driveway Sealing Product
- Preserves the cleanliness of your concrete surface for longer
- Pavement and driveway sealant that dries quickly for less inconvenience

We spent quite a bit of time researching a suitable product. Many surface sealers have toxic vapors. We wanted a product with low emissions and one that dried quickly. Our goal was to find an effective product that wasn’t environmentally intrusive and one that kept inconvenience to a minimum. We use a product with low gloss and which penetrates so that the surface is not slippery. The good news: generally, you’ll be able to use the sealed surface within 24 hours so we won’t inconvenience you too much.

When the correct sealant is applied, your driveway will be more resistant to stain and the cleanability of your driveway will be improved. Resealing is necessary when signs of wear and weathering become evident. If your driveway appears faded but darkens when wet, this is a general sign that the driveway needs resealing. If you are unsure of the condition of the sealant on your driveway, we are very happy in sharing our years of experience with you to help.
