Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as simple as most homeowners assume. Low-pressure garden hoses do not effectively wash away grime, dirt and mud that settles into the cracks and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a home’s patio with a pressure washer can also result in 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 company in Raleigh.
Our soft wash patio cleaning process starts with the application of a strong but safe detergent that breaks down embedded dirt and grime. 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 on your property.
For wood patio cleaning in Raleigh, 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 power washing but the pressure is kept considerably lower. This is important to protect the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing a patio also keep the wood from splintering which will lead to structural issues. We have knowledge and experience to determine the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has considerable damage then we will use the absolute lowest pressure needed to get the job done right.
Brick patios are usually much harder to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones all have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These sections make brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Raleigh brick patio cleaning service begins with solvents that can easily reach hidden areas of dirt and dust, dissolving even the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will remove moss, mold and algae that might be growing in between cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to wash away all the thick and unsightly dirt and grime.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does more than make the patio look nicer. Organic dirt, dust, grime and other such debris that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices of concrete might get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance too. 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 patio!
