What is Pressure Washing?

Pressure washing or jet washing is the use of high-pressure water to remove unsightly stains, chewing gum, dirt and grime from exterior surfaces such as driveways and patios.

It’s not always the most suitable means to brighten up and exterior which is why on building exteriors, Trevor uses a more effective and less invasive means of cleaning, known as soft washing.

Commercial Exterior Cleaning

Not only can pressure washing improve the appearance of a commercial business but also its cleanliness and hygiene. Whether it’s birds, animals. or an overgrowth of moss, pressure washing will have your business exterior looking like new.

TJ Dixon offers a range of solutions tailored to your needs. From chemical treatment to steam pressure washing. With 15 years’ in the business, he can tackle brickwork, stone, concrete, tiles and tarmac.

Street Cleaning

Clean public areas make towns and cities much more pleasant to live in. Councils are committed to ensuring areas are pleasant and safe for residents and tourists to visit. A clean, vibrant and welcoming high street is appealing for shoppers.
