Pressure washing a patio is not as simple as most homeowners assume. Standard garden hoses can’t properly 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 cause 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 Lehigh Acres.
Our patio cleaning process begins with the application of a powerful but safe detergent that removes deep dirt and debris. Your brick, concrete or wood 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 Lehigh Acres, we use the exact same equipment to power wash patios as we use home exterior, we use a different process. “Softwashing” is like power washing except the water pressure is considerably lower. This is necessary to preserve the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing a patio 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 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 usually more difficult to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles all have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These sections make effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a professional pressure washer.
Our Lehigh Acres brick patio cleaning procedure starts with solvents that easily reach those deep areas of dirt and grime, dissolving even the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solvents will dissolve moss, mold and algae that is growing in those cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to push off all the thick and unsightly dirt and grime.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the space look nicer. Dirt, dust, grime and other such debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete might 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, it becomes slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that’s walking on the patio!
Don’t count on a garden hose or DIY videos that promise to show you how to safely clean a patio, but instead leave this job to the professionals. Lehigh Acres Pressure Washing has years of hands-on experience in patio cleaning in Lehigh Acres and the surrounding communities, and our soft wash systems and brushes ensure all areas of your home’s patio are immaculately clean and are ready for you to enjoy!
