Hi I recently had a corner of my block paving done in the front driveway the bricks are red to match my existing driveway, but the existing driveway is dirty and paving is grey, what is the best way to clean the driveway paving so it’s original colour comes back is there a chemical cleaner, should I use a pressure washer, any advice would be great thanks

Patio cleaner and jetwash.
I use the bostik cleaner, but i think they're all the same more or less.
2 notes:
1. Careful with the patio cleaner, it's a corrosive substance so you must follow instructions to the letter, full ppe and no splashing.
2. After you finish jetwashing, hope for a couple of dry days, then use a waterproofer to keep your driveway looking good for a long time. I use the Thompson's and find it excellent.
I would recommend this for cleaning:
As mentioned above follow the instructions, and make sure you don't leave it on too long.

If you have any oil stains, then I've used this with success:
Again see the advice above.

Ditto on the Thompsons, but I used a different product:
3 years so far, and still looking good.

Where does all the water go?
No drains and the falls seem to be all wrong and to all the walls.

And now you have removed the drain area which has a back fall.

Good luck with it
