Pressure cleaning a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as simple as most homeowners assume. Standard garden hoses do not properly wash away silt, dirt and mud that settles into the cracks and pores of typical patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also result in chipped paint, a damaged lawn or garden and muddy water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Hillsboro.
Our patio cleaning service starts with the application of a strong but safe solvent that removes ground-in dirt and debris. Your brick, concrete or wood patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without damage to your lawn or landscaping or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Hillsboro, we use the same equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home, we use a different process. “Softwashing” is like regular power washing except the pressure is considerably lower. This is vital to preserve the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing also helps to keep the wood from splintering which will lead to structural problems. We have knowledge and experience to determine the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has visible damage then we will use the absolute lowest water pressure needed to get the job done right.
Brick patios are typically more difficult to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones have raised, textured areas along their surface. These sections make effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a professional pressure washer.
Our Hillsboro brick patio cleaning process starts with solvents that easily reach those unseen areas of dirt and dust, dissolving even the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solvents will dissolve moss, mold and algae that is growing in between cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to wash off all the thick and unsightly dirt and debris.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the space look better. Organic dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete can 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 becomes damp or wet, it becomes very slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that’s walking on the patio!
