Pressure cleaning a patio isn’t as simple as most homeowners assume. Residential garden hoses cannot effectively 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 cause chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn or garden and muddy water splashed onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Rockville.
Our patio cleaning process begins with the application of a strong but gentle solvent that breaks down embedded dirt and debris. Your brick, concrete or wood patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without damage to your lawn or landscaping or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Rockville, we use the same professional equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home, we use a different process. “Softwashing” is a lot like regular power washing except the water 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 problems. We have knowledge and years of experience to determine the exact pressure needed. If the patio has visible damage then we will use the absolute lowest water pressure necessary to get the job done safely.
Brick patios are often much harder to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones all have raised, textured areas along their surface. These sections make effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Rockville brick patio cleaning service begins with solvents that easily reach unseen areas of dirt and dust, dissolving the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solvents will remove moss, mold and algae that is growing in between cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to push away all the heavy and unsightly grit and grime.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does more than make the patio look nicer. Organic dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets trapped in the cracks and crevices of concrete might get blown into the lawn and will then ruin its appearance too. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this type of debris becomes damp, it becomes slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone walking on the patio!
Don’t count on a garden hose or DIY videos that attempt to show you how to clean a patio, but leave this job to the professionals. Rockville Pressure Washing has several years of experience in patio cleaning in Rockville and the neighboring communities, and our professional soft wash techniques and brushes guarantee all areas of your home’s patio are spotlessly clean and ready for you and your family to enjoy!
