Spring cleaning is about more than decluttering your wardrobe or attic; it’s also about maintaining your El Paso home’s exterior beauty. While keeping a pristine driveway may not be at the top of your to-do list, neglecting an important part of your home’s exterior can lead to several inconvenient consequences. 

A regular pressure wash can offer aesthetic value as well as many other benefits to keeping your home safe and functional. At Maintenance Unlimited, we provide El Paso home and business owners with professional cleaning services. Contact us online or call (915) 751-3780 to learn more today!

Improve Curb Appeal

No one likes driving by that one unsightly house, so an immediate benefit to pressure washing your driveway will boost your home’s curb appeal. A fresh clean will rid your surface of any blemishes, giving the illusion of a brand-new driveway.


Attempting to rid your driveway of any oil spills, bird droppings, and other debris is not only back-breaking work but requires a lot of time—especially if you don’t have the proper tools. While you may think turning up the hose to give your driveway a wash may be good enough, it isn’t. With commercial-grade pressure washing equipment, a professional cleaner is able to easily apply the right amount of force needed for a thorough clean in half the time (or more!) than it would take you.

Limit Health and Safety Hazards

Between exposure to the elements and tinkering away at your car, driveways can easily become an easel for many different oils, chemicals, and weather damages that create a slippery surface. With pressure washing, the force of the equipment will break down oils and other fluids to create an evenly clean, slip-free surface!


On another note, if any part of your driveway is covered in shade, it can create the perfect opportunity for algae, mold, mildew, and moss to grow. Not only are they unsightly, but too much exposure to it can create a health hazard for you and your loved ones.

Preventative for Harmful Plant Growth

Similar to the growth of algae, mold, and similar bacteria, many homeowners may be familiar with a stubborn weed that just won’t quit. Often, weed grows through the slimmest of cracks, making it difficult to get rid of. A pressure washing service can get through all those cracks and crevices, even riding the dirt in between them so weeds can’t continue growing.

Preparation for a New Sealcoat

If your driveway has seen a lot of damage over the years, such as cracks, depressions, or rutting, a new seal coat may be in your future. Pressure washing is a great preparation step to ensure your seal coat is applied evenly without debris build-up leaving bumps on the surface.

Protect the Longevity of Your Driveway

Everyone wants to get the most out of the things they use on a daily basis. To do that, though, regular maintenance is required. By introducing a regular pressure washing routine, you can prolong the life of your driveway by keeping it clean to limit harmful plant growth that can cause concrete to deteriorate over time.
