Pressure cleaning a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as simple as a lot of homeowners assume. Standard garden hoses do not effectively 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 splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Folsom.
Our soft wash patio cleaning service begins with the application of a powerful but gentle detergent that breaks down deep dirt and grime. Your brick, concrete or wood 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 Folsom, we use the same equipment to power wash patios as we use home exterior, but we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is a lot like power washing but the pressure is much lower. This is necessary to preserve the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing also keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural problems. We have the knowledge and years of experience to utilize the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will utilize the lowest pressure necessary to get the job done without further damage.
Brick patios are usually much harder to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones all have raised, textured areas along their surface. These areas make successful brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Folsom brick patio cleaning procedure begins with solvents that can easily reach unseen areas of dirt and grime, dissolving the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will dissolve moss, mold and algae that is growing in those cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to wash away all the thick and unsightly dirt and debris.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does much more than make the space look better. Dirt, dust, grime and other debris that gets trapped in the cracks and crevices of concrete might eventually get blown into the lawn and will then ruin its appearance as well. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this type of debris becomes damp, it becomes slick and very slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone that’s walking around the patio!
Don’t rely on a garden hose or DIY videos that try to show homeowners how to safely clean a patio, but instead leave this work to the professionals. Folsom Pressure Washing has several years of experience in patio cleaning in Folsom and the neighboring areas, and our soft wash techniques and specialty brushes will guarantee all areas of your patio are immaculately clean and are ready for you and your family to enjoy!
