It's more than clean, it's Renew Crew Clean

Reviving Your Front Walkway

When my husband and I bought our first house we knew there would be work involved, but we were surprised by how much in some respects. The house was in tip-top shape when we walked through it with our realtor (many times), but it was quite different when we moved in, especially the yard and front walkway.

The front walkway was one of the things I loved most about our house. It was concrete and brick and was flanked by short hedges of ivy. When we moved in, the ivy was in desperate need of some pruning and then we noticed that the walkway needed some TLC. Weeds and moss were growing between the bricks, there was caked on dirt in certain areas, and the concrete parts were definitely not their natural color.

Walkways are sometimes the first introduction your visitors have to your property and they should look great! If you are looking for ways to revive your front walkway, there are two things to help 1) weeding and 2) cleaning.

If you are like me and had some gnarly weeds growing in between your bricks or pavers, it’s time to weed. I know, it’s not a fun task, but it is necessary. Spend the time to get rid of the weeds at the root. Yes, at one point I was using a knife to get make sure that I got those stragglers from the base.

After weeding, it’s time to clean! This is where I suggest calling a professional pressure washing company like Renew Crew. Depending on the condition and age of your walkway, you could potentially make things worse. Using a pressure washer incorrectly can very easily crack and gouge your pavers and bricks.

Renew Crew uses our three step process to clean, seal and protect your front walkway. Our cleaning will wash away the vast majority of dirt, grim and stains, leaving your walkway looking great for visitors. The protect step is very important if you want to keep your walkway looking great. Most pressure washing companies don’t go to the effort to protect your space, but Renew Crew isn’t most pressure washing companies.
