Pressure cleaning a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as simple as many homeowners assume. Standard garden hoses cannot properly wash away silt, dirt and mud that falls 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 and dirty water splashed onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Grand Prairie.
Our patio cleaning process begins with the application of a strong but safe detergent that breaks down ground-in dirt and debris. Your patio, can then be gently rinsed, with low water pressure and without harming your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess on your property.
For wood patio cleaning in Grand Prairie, we use the exact same professional equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home, we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is like power washing but the pressure is considerably lower. This is necessary to protect the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing a patio also keep the wood from splintering which will cause structural problems. We have knowledge and experience to determine the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has visible damage then we will use the lowest water pressure necessary to get the job done without further damage.
Brick patios are often much harder to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles have raised, textured areas along their surface. These areas make successful brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a professional pressure washer.
Our Grand Prairie brick patio cleaning service starts with solvents that easily reach those hidden areas of dirt and grime, dissolving the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will dissolve moss, mold and algae that might be growing in between cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to push away all the heavy and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does more than make the patio look better. Dirt, dust, silt and other debris that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices of concrete will eventually get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance too. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this type of debris gets damp, it becomes very slick and slippery, creating a hazard for anyone walking around the patio!
