Hey guys, as some of you know I live on the west coast of canada on a beautiful island but with that being said we live in a wet coastal environment and ideal for miss growth. I have a ton of requests on asphalt driveway cleaning like the pictures below but usually avoid them because as we all know pressure washing asphalt is terrible. Real estate agents I work with “just want it done and presentable for pictures and showings”. So my question to you guys is what would you do for these issues. I had in mind applying a roof treatment style application then getting a street sweeper in or sweeping it away after it has dried!?!?! Thoughts for the pros on here?
That’s a great opportunity, no reason to pass. Roof mix the full area(let sit until dead) then low pressure (deck pressure) fan the moss off. You will not have any issues with asphalt at that pressure. Good luck

That’s kinda what I had in mind too. Maybe give a quick scrape with a shovel to remove the bulk of it too. I was worried about leaving marks but at around 1000 psi and 8GPM your plan might work! I’ll keep you posted.
Would love to hear what works best! I’m in Oregon and moss is plentiful here as well. I’ve typically just shoveled the bulk of it first and followed with low pressure. Would love to know if there is other preferred methods.
I quoted this already and had in mind treating the drive way first with roof mix then doing the roof treatment and washing the house then coming back and sanding with low pressure. See how it goes if I get the go ahead.
