Pressure cleaning a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as simple as most homeowners assume. Standard garden hoses do not properly wash away silt, dirt and mud that falls into the cracks and pores of typical patio materials. Cleaning a home’s patio with a pressure washer can also cause chipped patio 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 company in San Marcos.
Our patio cleaning service starts with the application of a powerful but gentle solvent that eliminates ground-in dirt and grime. Your 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 San Marcos, we use the same equipment to power wash patios as we use home, we use a different process. “Softwashing” is a lot like standard power washing but the water pressure is kept considerably lower. This is important to preserve the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing a patio also keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural issues. We have the knowledge and years of experience to determine the exact pressure needed. If the patio has visible damage then we will utilize the absolute lowest pressure needed to get the job done without further damage.
Brick patios are often more difficult to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles all have raised, textured areas along their surface. These sections make effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a professional pressure washer.
Our San Marcos brick patio cleaning process starts with solvents that easily reach unseen areas of dirt and grime, dissolving even the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will dissolve moss, mold and algae that might be growing in between cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to push away all the thick and unsightly grit and grime.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the space look nicer. Dirt, dust, grime and other such debris that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices of concrete might eventually get blown into the lawn and will then ruin its appearance too. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this debris becomes damp or wet, it becomes very slick and slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone that’s walking on the concrete patio!
