CROSS Specialist Cleaning work hard to restore and transform your residential and commercial spaces, offering attractive street appeal.

We clean exterior surfaces using a two-step approach:

Exterior surfaces are prone to hosting atmospheric organisms called biofilm which cause surfaces to stain, discolour and look unsightly. Biofilms can include algae, lichen, mould and moss, to name a few. Apart from looking ugly, they can have a detrimental and damaging effect on the surface if left untreated.

Traditionally, the most common option has been to use pressure (jet) washing to wash away the contaminants, but this only offers short-term superficial results! Why? Jet washing alone will not kill the living organism down to its root. By blasting the ‘live’ spores into the air, it can rapidly spread the problem as they land and recolonise on surrounding surfaces.

Using Pressure (jet) washing and Soft Washing

First, we wash the surface to remove surface soils. Next we apply our Soft wash solution to kill the biofilm and leave the formula to dwell. Lastly we rinse the surface to with a light wash which achieves better, longer lasting results.

We are specialists in the safe removal of organic and man-made stains from external surfaces to include unsightly fungi, moss, red, green, yellow and black algae, bacteria, lichen and mould to name a few. Applying our experience and knowledge of the industry, we safely kill the biofilm spores without risk of damage to the property or harming animals or the environment.

Driveway Cleaning

Protect your drive from the elements

A driveway is the first thing people see when arriving at your home or business. Apart from the aesthetics, it is essential to maintain your driveway to avoid deterioration from exposure to the elements and general wear and tear.

Attempting to clean your driveway yourself using a domestic machine is a laborious, messy task which rarely achieves great results. Furthermore, pressure washing surfaces indefinitely will also degrade the surface over time.

Let us use our industry knowledge and professional equipment, to deliver you professional results that will look cleaner and last longer.

  • We successfully remove Dirt, Weeds, Moss, Stains, Tyre marks, Oil, Paint and Grease.
  • We offer aftercare treatments that will protect against mould, lichen, algae, moss and fungi to keep your driveway looking its best all year round.
  • We can clean, re-sand between the joints with kiln dried sand, to give it a new lease of life.

Our 4 Stage Process

    1. First we treat any visible oil stains, moss or biofilm that may have colonised on the surface.
    1. After the treatments have taken effect, we use a powerful Honda pressure washer to clean the block paving.
    1. The block paving is left to dry out over 3-5 days (depending on weather conditions).
    1. Once sufficiently dry, we use ‘kiln dried’ sand to re-sand the joints.

Afterwards, we offer you ‘best practice’ advice to help you safely maintain your paving or alternatively, we can discuss a tailored maintenance package where we will periodically return to clean the surface and top up the seal to keep it looking as fresh as the day it was laid.

Here is a before/after large Indian Sandstone patio we pressure washed and soft washed in Balcombe.

We restore and seal many types of driveway to include:

  • Block Paving
  • Tarmac & Asphalt
  • Natural Stone
  • Paving Slabs

Patio Cleaning & Sealing

Remove lichen, algae and moss growth

Patios and driveways are an expensive investment and it does not take long for them to start looking soiled and lose their ‘newly laid’ appearance. To keep them looking their best requires periodic professional maintenance.

Usually they are made from porous materials so if they are located in a damp area which gets low sun exposure, very quickly they can go green with algae and moss growth.

When biofilm such as algae builds up on the surface, it can become slippery and very dangerous!

Keeping your patio clean is important to help prevent long-term expensive repairs.

  • Specialist in spot & stain removal.
  • Remove moss and algae growth.
  • Sealed to stay clean for longer.
  • Satisfaction Guarantee.

Imprinted Concrete Cleaning, Sealing & Colour Restoration

Reseal, Repair and Recolour

Although imprinted concrete is a very hard wearing, durable surface, it does require ongoing professional maintenance to keep it looking its best and may require re-sealing and possibly re-colouring over time.

If your imprinted concrete has cracks that need repair, we can fill the cracks with a cement and mortar (with colour) repair compound. Filling large cracks will make them look less visible.

We offer a premium sealer for imprinted concrete that comes in three finishes; gloss, silk and matt.

Need an anti-slip surface? No problem, we can mix an anti-slip additive into the concrete sealer to make the surface less slippery once sealed.


Tarmac Cleaning, Repair and Colour Restoration

Give it a new lease of life!

With constant exposure to weather conditions such as sunlight and frost, all tarmac surfaces will dry out over time and due to expansion and contraction of the surface, cracks and potholes can appear.

If your tarmac is looking tired and has endured damage, we can wash, repair, colour restore and seal the surface to give it a new lease of life!

Our tarmac restoration services include the following:

  • Pressure washing tarmac
  • Repairs to tarmac
  • Oil spill & stain removal
  • Moss & algae removal
  • Colour coating of tarmac (black, red or green)
  • Bespoke Colours can be made to order
  • Tarmac sealing
