Pressure washing a patio is not as simple as most homeowners think. Low-pressure garden hoses cannot properly wash away silt, dirt and mud that falls into the pits and pores of typical patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also cause chipped patio 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 Atlanta.
Our soft wash patio cleaning process starts with the application of a strong but gentle solvent that eliminates deep dirt and debris. Your patio, can then be gently rinsed, with low water pressure and without harming your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess on your property.
For wood patio cleaning in Atlanta, we use the exact same equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home exterior, we use a different system. “Softwashing” is a lot like power washing but the pressure is considerably lower. This is important to protect the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing a patio also helps to keep the wood from splintering which will lead to structural problems. We have the knowledge and years of experience to utilize the exact pressure needed. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will use the lowest water pressure needed to get the job done without further damage.
Brick patios are usually much harder to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles all have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These sections make brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a pressure washer.
Our Atlanta brick patio cleaning process begins with solvents that easily reach hidden areas of dirt and dust, dissolving the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will dissolve moss, mold and algae that might be growing in between cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to push off all the heavy and unsightly dirt and debris.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does more than make the space look nicer. Organic dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets trapped in the cracks and crevices of concrete will 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 type of debris becomes damp or wet, it becomes very slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone walking on the concrete patio!
