Pressure cleaning a patio isn’t as simple as a lot of homeowners think. Standard garden hoses can’t adequately wash away silt, dirt and mud that settles into the cracks and pores of typical patio materials. Cleaning a home’s patio with a pressure washer can also lead to chipped paint, a damaged lawn and muddy water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Seattle.
Our soft wash patio cleaning process starts with the application of a strong but safe solvent that removes deep dirt and grime. Your brick, concrete or wood patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without harming your lawn or landscaping or creating a mess on your property.
For wood patio cleaning in Seattle, we use the same equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home exterior, but we use a different process. “Softwashing” is a lot like standard power washing but the pressure is kept much lower. This is necessary to protect the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing a patio also helps to keep the wood from splintering which will cause structural problems. We have the knowledge and years of experience to utilize the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has considerable damage then we will use the lowest water pressure necessary to get the job done right.
Brick patios are often much harder to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles all have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These areas make brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a professional pressure washer.
Our Seattle brick patio cleaning process starts with solvents that easily reach unseen areas of dirt and grime, dissolving even the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will remove moss, mold and algae that might be growing in between cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to wash away all the heavy and unsightly dirt and grime.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the patio look cleaner. Organic dirt, dust, grime and other such debris that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices of concrete might get blown into the lawn and will then ruin its appearance. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this debris becomes damp, it becomes very slick and very slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone that’s walking on the patio!
Don’t count on a garden hose or DIY videos that attempt to show you how to safely clean a patio, but instead leave this work to the professionals.
