RAF Cosford Paving Cleaning
After carrying out a site visit and undertaking all of the usual Health and Safety procedures (Risk Assessment, Method Statement, COSHH Assessment etc) it was time for us to start this exciting project.
After the first initial site visit and seeing the degree of organic soiling present we knew this site would really benefit from a deep clean and we couldn’t wait to get started on reforming the site back to its former glory.
Finally, this week the team have been able to start cleaning the first stage of an ongoing project at RAF Cosford.
The project is to clean the paving onsite RAF Cosford as not only is it covered in unsightly moss, algae and weeds it’s starting to become unsafe to walk on due to the build-up of algae becoming slippery once wet which is a major risk to everyone’s safety.
Using the rotary floor cleaner set up with the correct nozzles and our van mounted 200 bar pressure washer the organic soiling was easily removed, a post treatment was applied for the finishing touch and to ensure all lichens (black spots) were removed/killed.
As you can see from the short video below the results achieved were nothing short of fabulous.

What added to the pressure was the fact that this school has the leisure centre on site which is open 7 days a week and is quite a busy place with visitors coming and going throughout the whole day, this made the job a little harder but didn't phase our team.
Take a look at some of the before and after photos below
I'm sure you'll agree, they did a fabulous job and made this block paving look like new!

Block Paving Clean in Stafford, Staffordshire.
So, one of this week’s jobs was cleaning a large area of block paved area that was heavily soiled in white lichens and algae. The block paving hadn’t been cleaned in many years and was in desperate need of a deep cleanse.
The first job was to get the pressure washer set up and talk the customer through the procedure to ensure minimal disturbance occurs while the work is being carried out.
Once the machines were ready the team then got to work cleaning the block paving…
Due to the heavy white lichen the turbo nozzle and lance was need to remove the tops off these stubborn lichens.
After a few hours, the paving started to take shape and the naturally colours of the pavers started to show through.
Once all the paving had been pressure washed it was then time to post treat the area to remove all the black and white lichens spores that were left, the treatment was applied, agitated then left to dwell for around 15-20 minutes to fully ensure all the lichens had fully disappeared.
Once we were happy they had all been removed the treatment was then rinsed off with a lower pressure rinse nozzle.
Before the clean was complete the full area and surroundings were cleaned down including all windows and walls leaving the areas free from any muck/sand debris.
The paving was then left for a couple of days to dry out before the team then headed back for a second visit to re-sand the blocks for the final touch.
The customer was over the moon with the results achieved and couldn’t believe just how well the paving looked once again.
Take a look at the video we made showing the fantastic results achieved once again by the team at Jetowash.

The team were over at a farm in Telford cleaning 960 solar panels using our water-fed pole systems and pure water to prevent water marks once dry.
The photo below shows just a small section of one of the huge buildings.
Although these panels had only been installed just over 12 months they had never been cleaned. The owner of the farm had noticed a drop in there performance so new it was time for there first clean.
Using our 35ft water fed pole systems and purified water it made cleaning the panels an easy task, we were able to reach all panels safely from the ground while still achieving great results as shown in the video below.
The owner wasn't sure how often the panels should be cleaned, we advise solar panels to be cleaned annually to remove dust and other substances such as bird droppings that can build up over time and impact on the amount electricity generated by a module. Dust, grime & bird droppings don't need to cover the whole panel to have a negative effect, to optimise there performance its highly advised to have them cleaned at least once a year.

This week one of the team were over in Cannock restoring a driveway for a customer whose concrete imprinted driveway was in desperate need of attention.
A few days later we had had a couple of nice sunny dry days so the drive had fully dried so it was time for the team to get to work reviving the driveway for the customer. Due to the condition of the imprinted concrete and sealer a few coats of sealer along with a colour tint were needed to bring this back to its original colour.
The customers had stated that once the driveway was wet it become very slippery, so on the finally coat we applied an anti-slip additive into the sealer to prevent the driveway become slippery once wet.
As you can see from the photos the drive looks as good as new and the customer could not believe the results we achieved.
Another drive clean and seal completed in Cannock with another very happy customer :)
With the season in full swing it’s been another busy week for the team at JetOWash.
One of the jobs we had to tackle this week was a block paved drive to be cleaned and re-sanded over in Cannock.
The customer had a friend recommend our service to her and thought it was time she hired a professional drive cleaning company to carry out a deep clean on her block paving at her home in Cannock.
One of the team visited the customer prior to the job to explain the procedure and to give a free no obligation quotation that the customer was happy with and wanted to get booked in as soon as possible.
On the day of the clean, the rain was coming down thick and fast but this didn’t stop us getting to work on reviving the driveway back to its former glory.
Once the machine was fully warmed up and ready to get to work our rotary floor cleaner was used to rip through all the moss, weeds and algae present on the driveway and did this with great success.
Once the whole drive had been cleaned via the rotary floor clearer we then fully rinsed down the areas and scooped up all the much into bags ready to be taken away with us leaving the customer with no mess left at her home at all, for the finishing touch on the day all lower windows on her house were cleaned.
With the drive clean now completed it was a case of leaving the driveway to fully dry before re-visiting the property to brush kiln dried sand in to the joints block paving’s joints.
To apply the sand the driveway must be fully dry so we are able to brush the sand into the block paving smoothly with the sand getting stuck to damp patches of the paving.
Re-sanding the block paving is an important part of the process as the this give the block paving its strength and competence. Without the jointing sand the paving would move and which could result in the whole drive being ruined.
So, as you can see the driveway has now been both deep cleaned and re-sanded to a very high standard and as you can image the customer was over the moon with the results we achieved.

With summer on its way things are really getting busy for the team here at JetOWash.
We have had a very productive week with a new van added to the fleet and many big jobs completed for local property management company's while still keeping our domestic customers happy reviving their driveways, patios, roofs, guttering and render to name a few.
So the last stage of the clean was a low pressure rinse down, making sure all of the walls, fence panels and lawn was free from debris and post treat the driveway to make sure all the lichen spores were dead to try and keep the drive cleaner for longer.
With the clean complete as you can see in the photo (above on the right) it's a case of leaving the driveway to dry out for a couple of days before we return to re-sand the block paving giving it the final finishing touch.

As I'm sure you will agree, the render has a very grey look making it look very grubby and unappealing which would've built up over time from a mixture of air pollution, changing weather conditions and general organic growth.
This is never an issue as all render can be restored with the right expertise, knowledge and treatments.
Our team didn't delay in getting the job started, with the render clean being in Stafford Town Centre it was paramount that we followed Health and Safety closely to ensure the members of public and staff were protected at all times, this allowing a smooth cleaning process.
All treatments used by JetOWash are approved by the HSE.
With the huge traffic in Stafford Town Centre, many of the public stopped to compliment the render clean and couldn't believe the transformation we were able to achieve, bringing this dirty looking render back to its former glory and giving it some extra kerb appeal.

The aesthetic look of your home plays a massive role in the value, even though it’s your home you’ve got to remember it’s a product you are trying to sell.
Let’s say you were going to buy a second hand car –
The first car you went to view was spotlessly clean, as soon as you pulled up you noticed how clean it was with the paint work just been polished and the inside dash board all shiny with vacuumed carpets smelling nice and fresh, your first thoughts are the owner has looked after the car.
Then the second car you go to view has all mud down the sides, with messy carpets and looks like it hasn’t been cleaned for the last 5 years.
WHICH CAR WOULD YOU CHOOSE????
Even though the second car could be the much better car mechanically you would be much more inclined to buy the first car you went to view just due to the car been cleaner.
Well what's different with your home????
"90% of the nation are more inclined to book a viewing of a well-maintained home as they can’t see past the dirt."
Get your home Buyer ready by increasing its kerb appeal and value with these essentials –
1. Clean Driveway
2. Clean PVC
Imagine going to look at house that’s white pvc is covered in green algae again it’s a massive put off and just give the impression of an unmaintained home. You need to give your home that inviting look. If you have pvc front door this is where the buyer will be standing and waiting for you or the estate agent to answer the door so the pvc being clean is an important factor.
Guttering that has debris and grass growing from them shows they have not been maintained for a few years this is not a good sign at all, remember it’s all about that first impression so make sure those gutters are cleared.
4. Clean Windows
Make the room feel brighter
Buyers look at windows to see if they need replacing its another expense they need to factor into their budget
5. Roof Cleaning
Why not go that extra mile and really make your home stand out from your neighbours.
When possible buyers are driving around looking for properties in the area you want yours to stand out from the crowd give your home that wow factor. Not a roof that is covered in moss that’s constantly falling from your roof onto your driveway and blocking up your guttering.
A clean roof really does do the trick, you only need to take a look at the photos below to show the dramatic difference a roof clean can make to your home which is attractive to the eye and can help your home sell faster and for more money.
Most buyers have made their mind up whether they like the house there viewing or not before they have even stepped in the front door.
Many people overlook their homes exterior when selling a house and think its all about getting the interior in check but the work you have done inside the house, like having every room repainted and decorated to freshen your up home and having your carpets cleaned ect may be too late if they already have a negative feeling about the property from the exterior upon approaching.
Having a full valet of your home will obviously encore some cost if you hire a professional company but it is guaranteed to give you a great ROI (return on investment) when it comes to trying to sell your home.
If you have any further tips to increase your homes kerb appeal please feel free to comment below for these to be added to the list.
