Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as simple as a lot of homeowners think. Standard garden hoses do not adequately wash away silt, dirt and mud that settles into the pits and pores of typical patio materials. Cleaning a home’s patio with a pressure washer can also lead to chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn and muddy water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Carmel.
Our patio cleaning service begins with the application of a strong but gentle solvent that breaks down ground-in dirt and debris. Your patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without harming your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Carmel, we use the exact same professional equipment to power wash patios as we use on a home, but we use a different system. “Softwashing” is like power washing except the pressure is kept considerably lower. This is vital to preserve the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing a patio also keep the wood from splintering which will cause 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 use the absolute lowest water pressure needed to get the job done safely.
Brick patios are typically much harder to 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 if using a pressure washer.
Our Carmel brick patio cleaning procedure starts with solvents that easily reach those unseen areas of dirt and grime, dissolving the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solvents will eliminate moss, mold and algae that might be growing in those cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to wash off all the heavy and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does more than make the space look cleaner. Dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices of concrete can get blown into the lawn and will then ruin its appearance too. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this type of debris becomes damp, it becomes very slick and slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone that’s walking around the patio!
Don’t count on a garden hose or DIY online videos that attempt to show you how to clean a patio, but leave this work to the professionals. Carmel Pressure Washing has years of experience in patio cleaning in Carmel and the neighboring communities, and our soft wash systems and specialty brushes guarantee all areas of your home’s patio are spotlessly clean and are ready for you and your family to enjoy!
