Pressure cleaning a patio is not as simple as most homeowners assume. Standard garden hoses do not effectively wash away silt, dirt and mud that settles 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 splashed onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Virginia Beach.
Our soft wash patio cleaning process starts with the application of a powerful but safe solvent that removes ground-in dirt and debris. Your patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without damage to your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess on your property.
For wood patio cleaning in Virginia Beach, we use the same equipment to power wash patios as we use on a home, but we use a different system. “Softwashing” is a lot like standard power washing but the pressure is kept much lower. This is necessary to protect the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing also helps to keep the wood from splintering which will lead to structural issues. We have the knowledge and years of experience to utilize the exact pressure needed. If the patio has visible damage then we will use the absolute lowest water pressure necessary to get the job done without further damage.
Brick patios are typically more difficult to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These areas make effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a professional pressure washer.
Our Virginia Beach brick patio cleaning process begins with specialty solvents that can easily reach those unseen areas of dirt and dust, dissolving the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will remove moss, mold and algae that might be growing in between those cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to push away all the thick and unsightly grit and grime.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the patio look cleaner. Dirt, dust, grime and other debris that gets trapped in the cracks and crevices of concrete might get blown into the lawn and 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 very slick and slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that is walking around the 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 work to the professionals. Virginia Beach Pressure Washing has years of experience in patio cleaning in Virginia Beach and the surrounding communities, and our soft wash systems and brushes will guarantee all areas of your patio are immaculately clean and ready for you to enjoy!
