Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as simple as most homeowners assume. Low-pressure garden hoses cannot properly wash away silt, dirt and mud that settles into the cracks and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also result in chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn or garden and dirty water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Davie.
Our patio cleaning process begins with the application of a strong but gentle detergent that breaks down ground-in dirt and debris. Your brick, concrete or wood patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without harming your lawn or landscaping or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Davie, we use the same professional equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home, but we use a different system. “Softwashing” is like regular power washing except the water pressure is kept much lower. This is necessary to protect the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing a patio also keep the wood from splintering which can lead to structural problems. We have knowledge and years of experience to utilize the exact pressure needed. If the patio has considerable 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 all have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These sections make successful brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Davie brick patio cleaning process starts with solvents that can easily reach those unseen areas of dirt and grime, dissolving even the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solvents will dissolve moss, mold and algae that is growing in between those cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to push away all the thick and unsightly dirt and grime.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does more than make the patio look better. Organic dirt, dust, grime and other debris that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices of concrete might 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 gets damp, it becomes slick and very slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone that’s walking on the patio!
Don’t count on a garden hose or DIY online videos that promise to show homeowners how to safely clean a patio, but leave this work to the professionals. Davie Pressure Washing has years of experience in patio cleaning in Davie and the surrounding areas, and our soft wash systems and specialty brushes will ensure all areas of your home’s patio are spotlessly clean and are ready for you to enjoy!
