Pressure cleaning a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as simple as a lot of homeowners assume. Low-pressure garden hoses cannot properly wash away grime, dirt and mud that settles into the cracks and pores of typical patio materials. Cleaning a home’s patio with a pressure washer can also cause chipped paint, a damaged lawn or garden and dirty water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Bethesda.
Our patio cleaning process starts with the application of a powerful but gentle solvent that dissolves embedded dirt and debris. Your patio, can then be gently rinsed, with low water pressure and without damage to your lawn or landscaping or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Bethesda, we use the same equipment to power wash patios as we use home, but we use a different system. “Softwashing” is like standard power washing but the water pressure is considerably 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 issues. We have the knowledge and years of experience to utilize the exact pressure needed. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will utilize the absolute lowest water pressure needed 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 Bethesda brick patio cleaning procedure starts with solvents that can easily reach unseen areas of dirt and dust, dissolving even the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These solvents will remove moss, mold and algae that might be growing in cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to wash off all the heavy and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the patio look better. Dirt, dust, silt and other debris that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices of concrete will 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 debris becomes damp, it becomes very slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone walking on the concrete patio!
Don’t rely on a garden hose or DIY online videos that promise to show you how to safely clean a patio, but instead leave this work to the professionals. Bethesda Pressure Washing has years of experience in patio cleaning in Bethesda and the surrounding communities, and our professional soft wash techniques and brushes guarantee all areas of your home’s patio are immaculately clean and are ready for you to enjoy!
