Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as simple as most homeowners assume. Residential garden hoses can’t adequately wash away grime, dirt and mud that settles into the cracks and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also cause chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn and dirty water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Garden Grove.
Our soft wash patio cleaning process begins with the application of a powerful but safe solvent that eliminates ground-in dirt and grime. Your patio, can then be gently rinsed, with low water pressure and without harming your lawn or landscaping or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Garden Grove, we use the exact same equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home exterior, but we use a different process. “Softwashing” is like standard power washing except the pressure is much lower. This is important to protect the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing also keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural issues. We have the knowledge and years of experience to determine the exact pressure needed. If the patio has considerable damage then we will utilize the lowest water pressure needed to get the job done without further damage.
Brick patios are typically more difficult to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones all 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 Garden Grove brick patio cleaning procedure begins with specialty solvents that easily reach hidden areas of dirt and grime, dissolving the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will remove moss, mold and algae that might be growing in between cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to push away all the heavy and unsightly dirt and debris.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does more than make the patio look cleaner. Organic dirt, dust, grime and other debris that gets trapped 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 type of debris becomes damp or wet, it becomes slick and slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone walking on the concrete patio!
Do not count on a garden hose or DIY videos that promise to show homeowners how to safely clean a patio, but leave this work to the professionals. Garden Grove Pressure Washing has several years of experience in patio cleaning in Garden Grove and the neighboring communities, and our professional soft wash systems and brushes guarantee all areas of your home’s patio are immaculately clean and ready for you and your family to enjoy!
