Driveway Cleaning Costs 2022

Your driveway is a crucial part of your property’s curb appeal. Your initial curb appeal accounts for about 20% of its market value. That’s more than enough motivation to do everything you can to keep it looking as clean and appealing as the day it was first installed.

However, no matter what you do, no matter how well you care for, sweep and clean a driveway, it is probably not enough. Debris, oil stains, and moss build up over time, causing your driveway to lose its looks gradually.

Only an invasive cleaning process like pressure washing can refresh your driveway. Using a pressure washer or power washer, you can get rid of those stains and get your driveway looking new again. But most of us don’t have either of these at home.

Plus, if you don’t know how to use them properly or don’t understand the other aspects of the driveway cleaning process, you probably won’t get the best results. So, welcome to our driveway cleaning cost guide. It will prepare you for what to expect when hiring a professional driveway cleaning company.

What is the cost to power wash a driveway?

Driveway Dimensions (square metres) Cleaning only (£) Total (£)
25 75-100 150-200
50 100-200 200-300
100 250-350 250-400

The average cost to clean a driveway is between £125 to £216 at £2 to £4.5 per square metre. However, as you can see from the table above, you won’t be hiring for cleaning alone. There are also additional tasks (like sanding and sealing) which we referred to earlier as “other aspects of the driveway cleaning process.”

These additional tasks can cost anywhere from £150 to £400, depending on the condition of your driveway. That last bit (the condition of your driveway), along with its size and other factors, will decide how much the entire project will cost you at the end of the day.
