Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as simple as many homeowners think. Low-pressure garden hoses cannot properly wash away silt, dirt and mud that falls into the pits and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also result in chipped paint, a damaged lawn or garden and dirty water splashed onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Philadelphia.
Our soft wash patio cleaning service starts with the application of a powerful but gentle detergent that dissolves embedded dirt and debris. Your brick, concrete or wood 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 Philadelphia, we use the exact same equipment to power wash patios as we use home exterior, we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is a lot like regular power washing but the pressure is much lower. This is necessary to preserve the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing a patio also keep the wood from splintering which will cause structural problems. We have knowledge and experience to utilize the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has visible damage then we will use the lowest pressure needed to get the job done safely.
Brick patios are usually 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 if using a professional pressure washer.
Our Philadelphia brick patio cleaning service starts with specialty solvents that can easily reach those hidden areas of dirt and dust, dissolving the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will eliminate moss, mold and algae that is growing in between those cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to push off all the thick and unsightly grit and grime.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does more than make the space look better. Dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete might get blown into the lawn and will then ruin its appearance too. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this debris becomes damp, it becomes slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone walking on the patio!
