Pressure cleaning a patio isn’t as simple as many homeowners assume. Standard garden hoses can’t adequately wash away silt, dirt and mud that settles into the pits and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also result in chipped paint, a damaged lawn and muddy water splashed onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Arlington.
Our soft wash patio cleaning process starts with the application of a powerful but gentle solvent that dissolves ground-in dirt and debris. Your patio, can then be gently rinsed, with low water pressure and without harming your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess on your property.
For wood patio cleaning in Arlington, we use the same professional equipment to power wash patios as we use on a home, we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is like power washing but the pressure is much lower. This is vital to preserve the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing a patio also keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural issues. We have knowledge and experience to determine the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will utilize the absolute lowest pressure needed to get the job done right.
Brick patios are usually more difficult to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones all have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These areas make brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Arlington brick patio cleaning service starts with specialty solvents that can easily reach hidden areas of dirt and grime, dissolving the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will remove moss, mold and algae that is growing in those cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to wash off all the heavy and unsightly dirt and debris.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does more than make the patio look nicer. Organic dirt, dust, grime and other such debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete will eventually get blown into the lawn and will then ruin its appearance. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this type of debris gets damp or wet, it becomes slick and slippery, creating a hazard for anyone walking on the concrete patio!
