Let Revive Boost Your Curb Appeal

There are a lot of lovely homes all across Essex, including in areas such as Brentwood (Revive Cleaning Ltd’s home base). Despite all the myriad benefits which our great county has to offer, however, some people still want to move away! We can’t understand it ourselves, of course, but people can make their own decisions, we suppose!

If you’re looking to sell your home in Essex, then it goes without saying that you’ll want to get as much money as you possibly can for your property. There are a whole lot of things that go into a home’s valuation of course, from its age, to its size, to its proximity to various services.

An oft-overlooked factor in our opinion, however, is simple curb appeal. That is, how attractive does your home look from the outside? It’s simple human nature to allow these kinds of things to influence us, however superficial they may seem, and it’s no different for property appraisers or people who are looking to buy a house.

The good news is that there are plenty of things you can do to boost your home’s curb appeal. The even better news is that we offer many of those services here at Revive! Window cleaning is our most popular offering for this purpose, but today we want to talk about an equally important one which often flies under the radar: driveway and patio cleaning.

Your driveways and patios bear the brunt of the often-trying weather we have here in Essex as much as any part of your home. Over time, if you don’t organize professional, regular driveway and patio cleaning, a whole lot of unwanted things can build up, from dirt and grime to weeds and moss.

Needless to say, all of these things look terrible, and unfortunately make your home look like a far less appealing place to live for newcomers. The windows and walls might look great, but – if you’ve failed to have them professionally cleaned – dirty driveways and patios can lead to a terrible first impression. Just like that, however lovely or spacious the interior of your home is, a buyer or appraiser may be turned off. Accordingly, the valuation of your home – or the result of whether you sell it at all or not – can be severely depressed. When you take this into account, the one-off cost of professional patio and driveway cleaning – the sort we provide at Revive Cleaning Ltd – is clearly an absolute no-brainer.

Just give us a call here at Revive, and we’ll make sure this nightmare scenario doesn’t come to pass. Whatever your driveways and patios are made of, we’ll use our extensive experience and high-end equipment to give them an incredible clean, getting them looking as good as new again. We’ll seal them afterwards too, to make them look even better.

When it comes to selling your home – when there are potentially thousands of pounds on the line – you don’t want to take any risks. Contact Revive Cleaning Ltd today, organize some professional patio and driveway cleaning and sealing, and your curb appeal will be boosted in no time.

Kick Start Your Spring Cleaning, With Revive

It’s been a long, hard winter here in Essex, as it has been across the entire United Kingdom. Our poor homes – not to mention our bodies! – have been constantly battered by the cold, rain and snow.

We’re optimistic folks here at Revive Cleaning Ltd, however, and we like to think that it simply can’t last much longer! We’re well into what should be the spring months now, after all, and finer weather must surely be just around the corner.

When spring does finally arrive in Britain, people’s minds usually turn to a few common things. High up on the list, of course, is the annual spring clean; a tradition which is alternately beloved and dreaded, but which we all feel we simply must do! It’s a great way to put the winter behind us – which we need to do more than ever this year – and look ahead to the brighter months to come.

When it comes to spring cleaning, people tend to focus on the interior of their homes, whilst often neglecting the outside (aside from a couple of big Sunday sessions in the garden, perhaps). We’d urge you to change that this year, and give the exterior of your home some love. In particular, we’d ask you to focus on a couple of areas which don’t always get the most attention; namely, your driveways and patios.

Both driveways and patios get subjected to the elements as much as any part of our homes, but they can go for many months, or even years, without getting the care they need. Driveway and patio cleaning seems to fall by the wayside, for some reason, but this is a major mistake. From a buildup of dirt, to the growth of weeds and moss, uncared-for patios and driveways can really suffer with time.

Spring is a great time to reverse this trend. You’ll almost certainly be welcoming friends and family over in the coming months, and – of course – you want your home to look as attractive as possible. With Revive Cleaning Ltd on your side, this will be an absolute cinch.

We’ll kick off by taking care of the visible dirt and stains which have built up over the winter. We use professional-grade, high-pressured equipment to do so, along with a powerful rotary scrubbing system. Then, if there are weeds and moss, we’ll take care of them in no time too.

Finally, to top it all off, we also provide a sealing service for both your patios and driveways (Revive Cleaning Ltd is actually an accredited Smart Seal registered installer, don’t you know!). Our sealants will get your surfaces looking back to their absolute best, and will keep them looking great for a long time to come. Whatever your surfaces are made of – whether it’s block paving, paving slabs or tarmac – we know exactly how to completely clean and refurbish them.

We repeat, the real spring season really is just around the corner here in Essex! This is the time to start planning ahead, for a much-improved spring and what we’re sure will be a lovely summer to come. This year, for your all-important spring clean, be sure to pay some attention to the outside of your home too. Patio and driveway cleaning and sealing – courtesy of Revive Cleaning Ltd, of course – is the perfect way to do exactly that.

To get in touch with Revive now, in order to discuss your spring cleaning needs, simply give us a call on 01277 724593, or shoot us over a message here.
