Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as easy as many homeowners think. Residential garden hoses cannot effectively wash away grime, dirt and mud that falls into the cracks and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also cause chipped paint, a damaged lawn and muddy water splashed onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Downey.
Our patio cleaning service starts with the application of a strong but gentle detergent that dissolves deep 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 Downey, we use the same professional equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home, but we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is a lot like power washing but the pressure is kept considerably lower. This is necessary to protect the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing also keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural problems. We have the knowledge and experience to utilize the exact pressure needed. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will use the absolute lowest pressure needed to get the job done right.
Brick patios are typically more difficult to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles all have raised, textured areas along their surface. These areas make effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a pressure washer.
Our Downey brick patio cleaning procedure starts with specialty solvents that can easily reach those hidden areas of dirt and dust, dissolving the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will eliminate moss, mold and algae that is growing in between cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to wash away all the thick and unsightly dirt and grime.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does more than make the space look cleaner. Dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete might eventually get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance as well. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this debris becomes damp or wet, it becomes slick and very slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone walking around the concrete patio!
Don’t rely on a garden hose or DIY videos that try to show you how to safely clean a patio, but instead leave this job to the professionals. Downey Pressure Washing has several years of hands-on experience in patio cleaning in Downey and the surrounding communities, and our professional soft wash techniques and specialty brushes guarantee all areas of your patio are spotlessly clean and are ready for you to enjoy!
