Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as simple as many homeowners assume. Residential garden hoses can’t properly wash away grime, dirt and mud that settles into the pits and pores of typical patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also lead to chipped paint, a damaged lawn or garden and dirty water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Winston-Salem.
Our patio cleaning process begins with the application of a strong but gentle solvent that dissolves ground-in dirt and grime. 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 Winston-Salem, we use the exact same professional equipment to power wash patios that we use home exterior, but we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is a lot like regular power washing except the pressure is kept much lower. This is important to preserve the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing also keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural problems. We have the knowledge and experience to determine the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has visible damage then we will utilize the lowest water pressure necessary to get the job done right.
Brick patios are often more difficult to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These sections make successful brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Winston-Salem brick patio cleaning service starts with solvents that easily reach those unseen areas of dirt and grime, dissolving even the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solvents will eliminate moss, mold and algae that might be growing in cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to wash away all the thick and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the patio look nicer. Dirt, dust, grime and other debris that gets caught 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, mold and algae. When this type of debris gets damp or wet, it becomes very slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that’s walking on the patio!
Do not rely 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. Winston-Salem Pressure Washing has years of hands-on experience in patio cleaning in Winston-Salem and the surrounding areas, and our professional soft wash systems and specialty brushes ensure all areas of your home’s patio are immaculately clean and ready for you to enjoy!
