Pressure cleaning a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as easy as many homeowners assume. Residential garden hoses cannot 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 lead to chipped paint, a damaged lawn and muddy water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Riverside.
Our patio cleaning process starts with the application of a strong but gentle solvent that removes deep dirt and debris. Your 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 Riverside, we use the same professional equipment to power wash patios as we use home exterior, we use a different process. “Softwashing” is a lot like standard power washing except the pressure is considerably lower. This is necessary to preserve the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing a patio also keep the wood from splintering which can lead to structural issues. We have knowledge and years of experience to determine the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has considerable damage then we will utilize the lowest water pressure needed to get the job done safely.
Brick patios are typically much harder to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles all have raised, textured areas along their surface. These sections make effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Riverside brick patio cleaning process starts with solvents that easily reach those hidden areas of dirt and grime, dissolving even the thickest 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 special brushes for 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 cleaner. Dirt, dust, grime and other debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete might eventually 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 type of debris becomes damp or wet, it becomes very slick and very slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone walking on the concrete patio!
