Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as easy as most homeowners assume. Low-pressure 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 lead to chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn or garden and dirty water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Lakeland.
Our patio cleaning process starts with the application of a strong but gentle solvent that breaks down deep dirt and debris. Your brick, concrete or wood patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without harming your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Lakeland, we use the exact same professional equipment to power wash patios as we use on a home, we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is a lot like standard power washing but the pressure is considerably lower. This is necessary to protect 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 years of experience to utilize the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will use the lowest water pressure needed to get the job done without further damage.
Brick patios are typically more difficult to 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 when using a pressure washer.
Our Lakeland brick patio cleaning procedure starts with solvents that easily reach hidden areas of dirt and grime, dissolving the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will eliminate moss, mold and algae that might be growing in those cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to wash away all the thick and unsightly grit and grime.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the space look better. 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 as well. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this type of debris becomes damp, it becomes slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone walking on the patio!
Do not rely on a garden hose or DIY online videos that attempt to show homeowners how to safely clean a patio, but leave this work to the professionals. Lakeland Pressure Washing has years of experience in patio cleaning in Lakeland and the surrounding areas, and our professional soft wash systems and specialty brushes guarantee all areas of your patio are immaculately clean and are ready for you and your family to enjoy!
