Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as simple as a lot of homeowners think. Low-pressure garden hoses can’t effectively wash away grime, dirt and mud that settles into the pits and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a home’s 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 Cary.
Our soft wash patio cleaning service starts with the application of a strong but gentle solvent that breaks down embedded dirt and grime. 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 on your property.
For wood patio cleaning in Cary, we use the same equipment to power wash patios as we use home, but we use a different process. “Softwashing” is a lot like power washing except the pressure is considerably lower. This is important to protect the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing also keep the wood from splintering which can lead to structural issues. We have the knowledge and years of experience to determine the exact pressure needed. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will use the absolute lowest pressure necessary to get the job done without further damage.
Brick patios are usually more difficult to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These sections make effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a professional pressure washer.
Our Cary 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 detergents will eliminate moss, mold and algae that might be growing in between cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to wash off all the thick and unsightly grit and grime.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the patio look better. Dirt, dust, grime and other such debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete will eventually get blown into the lawn and will then 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, it becomes very slick and slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that’s walking around the concrete patio!
Don’t count on a garden hose or DIY videos that attempt to show homeowners how to clean a patio, but leave this work to the professionals. Cary Pressure Washing has years of experience in patio cleaning in Cary and the surrounding areas, and our professional soft wash techniques and specialty brushes will ensure all areas of your patio are pristinely clean and ready for you to enjoy!
