Rain, rain and more rain. Easy clean though

So I worked on the Saturday all the way out near Clacton a driveway and patio to be cleaned, a AA operative was sorting a chip in a windscreen for the customer when he managed to break the windscreen, the window wiper and spill some nasty fluid all over the block drive.

That happened a few weeks back the job was to remove 20 blocks from an area of driveway out of the way that were already weathered to replace the blocks that were ruined in the front of the driveway and the new blocks go into the out of the way area to weather.

And then when thats all changed I cleaned everything.

And no biscuits today although I did get regular cups of tea and as you can see it wasnt the dirtiest patio and driveway and didn't take to long to clean.

A bonus was the fact I didn't have to wait around to sand the drive as Ill be going back to seal it when we get drier weather.

Hose Pipe Ban Rules - Patios cleaned in Essex

What with the recent hose pipe ban I have been receiving numerous calls regarding people who often clean there own patio but cant use there hose pipe so require me to come out and clean.

Business: Any commercial businesses operating at commercial premises are not included in the ban.  Businesses that operate at a domestic property or wash private vehicles (eg; car/driveway/patio washing  or window cleaning) can use the hosepipe in the course of there work, where this is done as a service to customers.

At a recent job in Ealing an old women walking past a job I was on took particular exception to the amount of water I was using and didn't like my explanation that as a business I was exempt.

A little job in Brentwood that the women had started herself but the ban got the better of her.

And 1 out of 2 of the customers sorted me out a cup of tea but on a small job like these were I weren't to concerned, its the all day jobs where I get particularly parched then I nice cuppa is needed and on one job this month I even had a lemon tea which was a very different experience to the norm.

Oil Removal off Driveway Braintree

The customer phoned me as his landlord was holding back payment due to a few oil splatters on his block paved driveway and wanted the few splatters removed but not to worry about the large oil spill as that was what his landlord had made and wasn't of his concern.

But I managed to remove most of the large spill and the splatters as was no point leaving it when I was cleaning the drive anyway.

With this job as the customer had already moved out there was no chance for him to provide refreshments so I went with out tea today.
