About pressure washing

Pressure washing is the use of hot or cold water under high pressure to remove contaminants from a surface. We use flat surface cleaners to clean large areas - often with jets - and lances to clean vertical surfaces and hard to reach areas. 

The benefits

Flat surfaces can be cleaned quickly and efficiently with pressure washing, eliminating slip hazards and improving aesthetics. With high pressure and flow rate, it can be quicker than steam cleaning. Cold water can be used to pressure wash temperature-sensitive surfaces like painted cladding, or in combination with heat-reactive cleaning chemicals. 

Typical Applications

Pressure washing is ideally suited to durable surfaces such as concrete, block paving and metal cladding. 


Pressure washing is ideal for cleaning concrete pavers that can stand up to the impact without being damaged. Pressure washing quickly removes the built-up grime and organic matter that can make the pavers slippy and unsafe as well as unsightly. 

Brick work

Pressure washing is often used for cleaning brick work that has become discoloured by built up contaminants. We always review and assess the state of the brick work prior to cleaning to gauge the most appropriate treatment and ensure that we achieve the best possible outcome whilst mitigating risk.


Metal, which is widely used throughout the built environment, often becomes discoloured as a result of biological and/or environmental pollutants. Pressure washing using hot or cold water works well for cleaning metal surfaces such as cladding, fascias and more.
