Pressure cleaning a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as simple as many homeowners think. Low-pressure garden hoses cannot effectively wash away grime, dirt and mud that falls into the pits and pores of typical patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also lead to chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn or garden and dirty water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Dayton.
Our soft wash patio cleaning process begins with the application of a strong but gentle solvent that eliminates embedded dirt and debris. Your brick, concrete or wood patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without harming your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Dayton, we use the same professional equipment to power wash patios as we use on a home, we use a different process. “Softwashing” is like regular power washing but the water pressure is kept considerably lower. This is important to preserve the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing a patio also keep the wood from splintering which will cause structural issues. We have knowledge and experience to determine the exact pressure needed. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will utilize the absolute lowest pressure needed to get the job done right.
Brick patios are often more difficult to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones have raised, textured areas along their surface. These areas make effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Dayton brick patio cleaning procedure begins with specialty solvents that can easily reach hidden areas of dirt and dust, dissolving even the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solvents will eliminate moss, mold and algae that might be growing in cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to push off all the heavy and unsightly grit and grime.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does more than make the patio look cleaner. Dirt, dust, silt and other debris that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices of concrete can get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance too. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this debris gets damp or wet, it becomes slick and very slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone walking around the patio!
