Pressure cleaning a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as simple as many homeowners assume. Low-pressure garden hoses can’t effectively wash away grime, dirt and mud that falls into the pits and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also lead to chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn or garden and dirty water splashed onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Lakewood.
Our patio cleaning process starts with the application of a strong but safe solvent that dissolves ground-in dirt and grime. Your patio, can then be gently rinsed, with low water pressure and without damage to your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Lakewood, we use the same professional equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home exterior, but we use a different process. “Softwashing” is like power washing except the pressure is kept considerably lower. This is vital to protect the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing also keep the wood from splintering which will lead to structural issues. We have the knowledge and years of experience to utilize the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will use the lowest water pressure necessary to get the job done safely.
Brick patios are typically more difficult to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles have raised, textured areas along their surface. These areas make successful brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a pressure washer.
Our Lakewood brick patio cleaning service starts with solvents that easily reach hidden areas of dirt and grime, dissolving the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will remove moss, mold and algae that is growing in 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 more than make the space look nicer. Organic dirt, dust, grime and other debris that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices of concrete can eventually get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance too. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this type of debris becomes damp or wet, it becomes very slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that’s walking around the concrete patio!
Do not count on a garden hose or DIY online videos that try to show homeowners how to safely clean a patio, but instead leave this job to the professionals. Lakewood Pressure Washing has years of hands-on experience in patio cleaning in Lakewood and the surrounding areas, and our professional soft wash techniques and specialty brushes will guarantee all areas of your patio are spotlessly clean and are ready for you to enjoy!
