Pressure cleaning a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as simple as many homeowners assume. Residential garden hoses do not properly wash away silt, dirt and mud that falls into the pits and pores of typical patio materials. Cleaning a 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 best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Alhambra.
Our soft wash patio cleaning service starts with the application of a powerful but gentle solvent that dissolves deep dirt and debris. 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 Alhambra, we use the same professional equipment to power wash patios as we use on a home, we use a different system. “Softwashing” is like regular power washing except the water pressure is kept much lower. This is vital to protect the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing a patio also helps to keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural issues. We have knowledge and years of experience to utilize the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has visible damage then we will use the absolute lowest pressure needed to get the job done safely.
Brick patios are typically much harder to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles all have raised, textured areas along their surface. These areas make successful brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a pressure washer.
Our Alhambra brick patio cleaning process begins with specialty solvents that easily reach unseen areas of dirt and dust, dissolving even the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will eliminate moss, mold and algae that is growing in between those cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to wash away all the thick and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does much more than make the patio look cleaner. Organic dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices of concrete will eventually get blown into the lawn and will then ruin its appearance too. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this debris gets damp, it becomes slick and slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone that’s walking on the patio!
Don’t rely on a garden hose or DIY online videos that try to show you how to safely clean a patio, but leave this job to the professionals. Alhambra Pressure Washing has years of hands-on experience in patio cleaning in Alhambra and the neighboring areas, and our soft wash systems and specialty brushes ensure all areas of your home’s patio are pristinely clean and ready for you to enjoy!
