Concrete Cleaning Company
Oil, Rust, Dirt & Grime Are No Match For Us
Most of us regularly clean our kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, cars, and, of course, ourselves! Why? Because we know that cleaning is an important part of preventative maintenance. Washing our cars keeps them running smoother for longer. Disinfecting our home kills bacteria. And a cleaner person is a healthier person. But what about your concrete? Does that need to be washed too? Definitely. Though these surfaces are often overlooked and neglected, regular cleaning is an important part of maintaining your property.
Our team has extensive experience eliminating tough stains from porous surfaces. Don’t waste your time and energy trying to remove set-in rust and oil on your own. Instead, leave it to the professionals and save yourself the hassle and money required to purchase the necessary equipment. We come prepared with all needed tools and materials to get this job done.
Why Clean Concrete Surfaces?
Look at your driveway. Do you see stains from car oil, algae, mold, dirt, and other debris? You might think this is just an eyesore, but it’s more damaging than that. If these elements are allowed to build up on the surface, they can wear down and eat away at your pavement. You might end up having to repair or replace your driveway much sooner than you should. Pressure washing your driveway increases its durability by removing contaminants before they cause serious damage.
Are you looking to sell your home? Do you want to lease or sell your commercial property? Then don’t underestimate the power of cleaning your pavement and walkways. The neat and well-maintained walkways, sidewalks, and other hardscapes will appeal to potential buyers.
The Best Way to Clean
So now that you know the benefits of concrete cleaning, you’re probably wondering how it’s done. Here’s the process:
Step 1: Remove Large Debris
First we prepare the surface by sweeping off any leaves, sticks, rocks, and other larger pieces of debris.
Step 2: Pressure Wash the Surface
In order to thoroughly clean the surface, you need to use high-pressure water. Though power washing can damage more delicate surfaces, concrete can take the heat!
Step 3: Seal the Surface
After the surface is thoroughly dry, you can seal it. The sealant will act like a shield for your hardscapes, protecting them from the elements.

Why Hire a Professional?
Many homeowners in Alexandria love DIY projects! And for many things, doing it yourself is a great idea. But that’s not the case with pressure washing. Why not? In untrained hands, a power washer can become a weapon that destroys your home instead of a tool to restore it.
Using too much power can cause several years worth of damage to many of the more delicate surfaces of your house such as your roof, siding, and deck. That could cause some expensive repairs. And without experience using these tools, you could be risking your safety!
The solution? Call Smart Wash of Alexandria, VA! We have the tools, training, and experience to get the job done right. And you won’t have to let this project eat into your free time.
