Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as easy as many homeowners assume. Residential garden hoses do not properly wash away silt, dirt and mud that falls into the cracks and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a home’s patio with a pressure washer can also result in 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 Port St Lucie.
Our soft wash patio cleaning service starts with the application of a powerful but gentle detergent that dissolves ground-in dirt and debris. Your patio, can then be gently rinsed, with low water pressure and without damage to your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess on your property.
For wood patio cleaning in Port St Lucie, we use the exact same equipment to power wash patios as we use home exterior, but we use a different system. “Softwashing” is a lot like regular power washing but the water pressure is much lower. This is vital to protect the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing also helps to keep the wood from splintering which can lead to structural problems. We have knowledge and experience to utilize the exact pressure needed. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will utilize the lowest water pressure necessary to get the job done without further damage.
Brick patios are often more difficult to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles have raised, textured areas along their surface. These sections make successful brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a pressure washer.
Our Port St Lucie brick patio cleaning process begins with specialty solvents that easily reach hidden areas of dirt and grime, dissolving the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will eliminate moss, mold and algae that is growing in between cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to push away all the thick and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does more than make the space look cleaner. Dirt, dust, grime and other such debris that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices of concrete might eventually 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 slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that is walking around the patio!
Do not 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. Port St. Lucie Pressure Washing has several years of hands-on experience in patio cleaning in Port St Lucie and the surrounding areas, and our soft wash techniques and brushes ensure all areas of your home’s patio are spotlessly clean and ready for you and your family to enjoy!
