    Hi. I know the job has passed now, but for future ref, the house was that dirty for a reason, usually damp issues. We not only pressure wash houses, but seal the brickwork too. It allows moisture out, but not in. It has a 15 year life span, has Eco benefits too, saving money on house heating etc. It's a valuable add-on business and you earn anywhere from £250-400 profit per day, depending on the job. If it is less than £250.00 per day I don't do it. It's as simple as that.

    If you want to know more about the product it is here: http://allaroundcleaningltd.co.uk/index.php/patio-driveway-cleaning-sealing/patio-cleaning-sealing

    We mainly use it on patios because that is where the main demand is at the moment, but the primary reason it was made was for sealing buildings.
