A driveway takes up a large percentage of your home exteriors appearance, much more than often your garden itself does. Not only is a clean driveway suggestive that the rest of the home is well maintained but also makes your home stand out from the rest of the homes within the area. Don’t just take our word for it, look at the attached before and after photo of a standard driveway we cleaned in Dunfermline and see the dramatic increase in colour enhancement alone. Next doors driveway still looks like the before photo, and I am sure you will agree on which looks the most inviting. Have a look at our driveway cleaning page for more information on the services we offer.
Lisa Mackenzie; the director of Kingleigh Folkard and Hayward states that “the front and rear of a property is just as important in making a good impression as the inside is” when selling a home. There are various articles describing that poorly maintained properties can sell for far less than a well maintained property, and buyer psychology is an important factor, a factor that is often influenced when the property is first seen from the roadside. For more information on selling influences and home selling ‘to do lists’ see www.primelocation.com.
We can offer a variety of effects on your driveway such as sealants that then provides a slight sheen, or perhaps a coloured sealant? This in itself is a bespoke service, and one that you can tailor in to suit the surrounding themes. Some customers choose to have a driveway wash only, but especially on darker paving a re-sanding service really stands out. We use the highly regarded www.resiblock.co.uk for our sealants.
One study led by associate professor NiCole R. Keith, Ph.D supported the fact that those whom live in a clean and organised environment are physically healthier. This was a large scale study and is backed up by many more, that all find those that have a cleaner and more positive environment have less chance of physical health deteriorations. This may seem a million miles away from driveway cleaning but the fact remains that it is at very least a positive environmental health signal.
