Pressure washing a patio is not as easy as many homeowners assume. Low-pressure garden hoses cannot adequately wash away grime, dirt and mud that falls into the pits and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a home’s patio with a pressure washer can also result in chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn and muddy water splashed onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Elk Grove.
Our soft wash patio cleaning service begins with the application of a strong but gentle detergent that breaks down deep dirt and grime. Your brick, concrete or wood patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without damage to your lawn or landscaping or creating a mess on your property.
For wood patio cleaning in Elk Grove, we use the exact same professional equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home, we use a different process. “Softwashing” is like power washing except the pressure is much lower. This is important to preserve the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing a patio also helps to keep the wood from splintering which can lead to structural problems. We have the knowledge and experience to determine the exact pressure needed. If the patio has considerable damage then we will utilize the absolute lowest pressure necessary to get the job done safely.
Brick patios are typically more difficult to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These areas make effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a professional pressure washer.
Our Elk Grove brick patio cleaning process begins with solvents that easily reach those unseen areas of dirt and dust, dissolving even the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will remove moss, mold and algae that might be growing in cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to wash off all the thick and unsightly dirt and grime.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the space look nicer. Organic dirt, dust, silt and other debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete might get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance as well. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this debris gets damp, it becomes slick and slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that is walking around the concrete patio!
