Concrete Cleaning, Painting & Sealing
High Pressure cleaning & sealing or painting concrete is usually considered a big job. Concrete looks great when new and is very cost effective when laying very large areas for car parks & large driveways, that’s probably why there is always so much of it around to clean. Concrete sealing large areas can be daunting & very time consuming! Because of its light colour, concrete can become very unsightly fast given the right conditions. Concrete is usually very porous and harbours moisture and dirt promoting the growth of mould ( the black colour you see ). Because of its deep pours high pressure cleaning alone will not bring back concretes original like new appearance unless a special chemical treatment is used in conjunction with the pressure cleaning process & to keep it looking new Waterworx Pressure Cleaning & Concrete Sealing Ipswich are the ones for the job..
Concrete sealing by Waterworx Pressure Cleaning & Concrete Sealing Ipswich is straight forward because we have the right power washing equipment & sealers. High powered commercial pressure cleaners accompanied with environmentally friendly surfactants & the right sealers are the only sure means of bringing your concrete back to life.

Q. What is the process of the concrete sealing job ?
A. Concrete sealing starts with a high pressure clean to remove any dust and dirt build up. Once the surface is clean and dry we tape up all areas to protect brick work and other surfaces, we then apply 2 coats of paint to the concrete. Once the paint is dry, we remove all the protective tape leaving the concrete looking as good as new!

At Waterworx Pressure Cleaning & Concrete Sealing Ipswich we only use top quality paints from Dulux and give a 10 year warranty on all our work.
Q. What can we do to keep surfaces looking good?
