Pressure washing a patio isn’t as simple as many homeowners assume. Residential garden hoses cannot adequately wash away silt, dirt and mud that falls into the pits and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also result in chipped paint, a damaged lawn or garden and dirty water splashed onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Portland.
Our soft wash patio cleaning service starts with the application of a powerful but gentle solvent that dissolves deep dirt and debris. Your patio, can then be gently rinsed, with low water pressure and without harming your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess on your property.
For wood patio cleaning in Portland, we use the same professional equipment to power wash patios that we use home exterior, but we use a different system. “Softwashing” is a lot like power washing except the pressure is much lower. This is necessary to protect the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing a patio also keep the wood from splintering which will lead to structural problems. We have the knowledge and years of experience to utilize the exact pressure needed. If the patio has visible damage then we will utilize the absolute lowest pressure needed to get the job done right.
Brick patios are typically more difficult to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones all have raised, textured areas along their surface. These areas make successful brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Portland brick patio cleaning procedure begins with solvents that easily reach those unseen areas of dirt and dust, dissolving the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will dissolve moss, mold and algae that might be growing in those cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to wash away all the heavy and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does more than make the space look nicer. Dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete will get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this type of debris becomes damp or wet, it becomes slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone walking on the patio!
