Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as easy as a lot of homeowners think. Standard garden hoses cannot effectively wash away grime, dirt and mud that falls into the pits 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 best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Plymouth.
Our patio cleaning process starts with the application of a powerful but gentle detergent that dissolves ground-in dirt and grime. 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 Plymouth, we use the same professional equipment to power wash patios that we use home, but we use a different process. “Softwashing” is a lot like power washing except the water pressure is considerably lower. This is vital to preserve the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing also helps to keep the wood from splintering which will lead to structural issues. We have the knowledge and years of experience to determine the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has visible damage then we will utilize the lowest water pressure needed to get the job done right.
Brick patios are typically more difficult to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These sections make effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a pressure washer.
Our Plymouth brick patio cleaning procedure starts with solvents that easily reach those deep areas of dirt and grime, dissolving the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will dissolve moss, mold and algae that is growing in those cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to wash away all the heavy and unsightly grit and grime.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does much 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 get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this type of debris becomes damp or wet, it becomes slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that is walking on the concrete patio!
Don’t count on a garden hose or DIY videos that promise to show you how to clean a patio, but instead leave this job to the professionals. Plymouth Pressure Washing has several years of experience in patio cleaning in Plymouth and the surrounding areas, and our professional soft wash techniques and specialty brushes guarantee all areas of your home’s patio are pristinely clean and ready for you and your family to enjoy!
