Pressure washing a patio isn’t as simple as a lot of homeowners assume. Standard garden hoses can’t properly wash away grime, dirt and mud that falls into the pits and pores of typical patio materials. Cleaning a home’s 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 Chesapeake.
Our patio cleaning service starts with the application of a strong but gentle solvent that removes ground-in dirt and debris. Your brick, concrete or wood patio, can then be gently rinsed, with low water pressure and without damage to your lawn or landscaping or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Chesapeake, we use the exact same equipment to power wash patios as we use home exterior, but we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is like regular power washing but the water pressure is much lower. This is important to protect the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing a patio also helps to keep the wood from splintering which can lead to structural issues. We have knowledge and years of experience to utilize the exact pressure needed. If the patio has visible damage then we will use the lowest water pressure needed to get the job done right.
Brick patios are usually more difficult to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These sections make brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a professional pressure washer.
Our Chesapeake brick patio cleaning service begins with specialty solvents that can easily reach those hidden areas of dirt and grime, dissolving even the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will eliminate moss, mold and algae that is growing in between those cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to push off all the heavy and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does more than make the patio look cleaner. Dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets trapped in the cracks and crevices of concrete might get blown into the lawn and 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 that is walking on the patio!
