Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as easy as a lot of homeowners assume. Low-pressure garden hoses cannot properly wash away grime, dirt and mud that falls into the cracks and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a home’s patio with a pressure washer can also cause chipped paint, a damaged lawn or garden and muddy water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Silver Spring.
Our patio cleaning service starts with the application of a powerful but safe detergent that removes deep dirt and debris. Your brick, concrete or wood patio, can then be gently rinsed, with low water pressure and without harming your lawn or landscaping or creating a mess on your property.
For wood patio cleaning in Silver Spring, we use the exact same equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home, but we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is like regular power washing but the pressure is kept much lower. This is vital to protect the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing also keep the wood from splintering which will cause structural issues. We have the knowledge and experience to utilize the exact pressure needed. If the patio has visible damage then we will use the lowest water pressure necessary to get the job done safely.
Brick patios are usually more difficult to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These sections make effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a pressure washer.
Our Silver Spring brick patio cleaning procedure begins with specialty solvents that can easily reach those unseen areas of dirt and grime, dissolving even the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will dissolve moss, mold and algae that might be growing in cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to wash away all the heavy and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does more than make the patio look cleaner. Dirt, dust, grime and other debris that gets trapped 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, mold and algae. When this type of debris becomes damp or wet, it becomes slick and slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that’s walking around the concrete patio!
Don’t count on a garden hose or DIY online videos that promise to show homeowners how to clean a patio, but instead leave this job to the professionals. Silver Spring Pressure Washing has years of experience in patio cleaning in Silver Spring and the surrounding areas, and our soft wash techniques and brushes ensure all areas of your patio are pristinely clean and are ready for you and your family to enjoy!
