Pressure cleaning a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as simple as many homeowners assume. Standard garden hoses cannot properly wash away silt, dirt and mud that settles into the cracks and pores of typical patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also cause chipped paint, a damaged lawn and dirty water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Rocklin.
Our patio cleaning process starts with the application of a strong but safe solvent that eliminates ground-in dirt and debris. Your patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without damage to your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Rocklin, we use the same professional equipment to power wash patios as we use on a home exterior, we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is like power washing except the pressure is kept considerably lower. This is vital to protect the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. 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 utilize the absolute lowest water pressure needed to get the job done without further damage.
Brick patios are usually more difficult to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles all have raised, textured areas along their surface. These sections make successful brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Rocklin brick patio cleaning procedure starts with solvents that can easily reach those unseen areas of dirt and dust, dissolving even the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will dissolve moss, mold and algae that is 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 cleaning a concrete patio does more than make the space look nicer. Dirt, dust, grime and other such debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete can get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this type of debris becomes damp or wet, it becomes slick and slippery, creating a hazard for anyone walking on the concrete patio!
