Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as simple as a lot of homeowners assume. Residential garden hoses cannot properly wash away silt, dirt and mud that falls into the cracks and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a 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 Gilbert.
Our soft wash patio cleaning process starts with the application of a powerful but gentle detergent that eliminates ground-in dirt and debris. Your patio, can then be gently rinsed, with low water pressure and without damage to your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Gilbert, we use the exact same equipment to power wash patios as we use home exterior, but we use a different system. “Softwashing” is a lot like standard power washing but the water pressure is kept much lower. This is necessary 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 years of experience to utilize the exact pressure needed. If the patio has considerable damage then we will use the absolute lowest water pressure necessary to get the job done right.
Brick patios are often much harder to pressure 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 if using a professional pressure washer.
Our Gilbert brick patio cleaning service starts 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 dissolve moss, mold and algae that is growing in between those cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to push away all the heavy and unsightly dirt and debris.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the space look better. Dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets trapped in the cracks and crevices of concrete might eventually get blown into the lawn and will then ruin its appearance. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this type of debris becomes damp, it becomes very slick and very slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone that is walking around the concrete patio!
Do not count on a garden hose or DIY videos that attempt to show homeowners how to safely clean a patio, but instead leave this job to the professionals. Gilbert Pressure Washing has several years of hands-on experience in patio cleaning in Gilbert and the surrounding areas, and our professional soft wash techniques and brushes guarantee all areas of your patio are pristinely clean and are ready for you to enjoy!
