Pressure cleaning a patio isn’t as simple as many homeowners think. Residential garden hoses cannot 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 cause chipped paint, a damaged lawn or garden and muddy water splashed onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Georgetown.
Our patio cleaning process starts with the application of a strong 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.
For wood patio cleaning in Georgetown, we use the same professional equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home exterior, but we use a different process. “Softwashing” is a lot like power washing except the water pressure is kept much lower. This is vital to preserve the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing also keep the wood from splintering which can lead to structural issues. We have knowledge and experience to utilize the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will use the lowest pressure necessary to get the job done safely.
Brick patios are typically much harder to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These areas make brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a pressure washer.
Our Georgetown brick patio cleaning process starts with specialty solvents that can easily reach those deep areas of dirt and dust, dissolving even the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will eliminate moss, mold and algae that is growing in between those cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to wash off all the thick and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the patio look cleaner. Dirt, dust, grime and other such debris that gets trapped in the cracks and crevices of concrete might eventually get blown into the lawn and will then ruin its appearance. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this type of debris becomes damp, it becomes very slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that’s walking around the patio!
Don’t count on a garden hose or DIY videos that promise to show homeowners how to safely clean a patio, but instead leave this work to the professionals. GTX Georgetown Pressure Washing has several years of experience in patio cleaning in Georgetown and the neighboring communities, and our soft wash techniques and specialty brushes ensure all areas of your patio are spotlessly clean and are ready for you and your family to enjoy!
