Pressure cleaning a patio is not as simple as most homeowners think. Residential garden hoses can’t properly wash away silt, dirt and mud that falls into the cracks and pores of typical 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 service in Sarasota.
Our soft wash patio cleaning process starts with the application of a strong but safe detergent that eliminates 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 Sarasota, we use the same equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home exterior, we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is a lot like regular power washing but the water pressure is considerably lower. This is necessary to preserve the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing a patio also helps to keep the wood from splintering which can lead to structural problems. We have the knowledge and years of experience to utilize the exact pressure needed. If the patio has considerable damage then we will use the lowest pressure necessary to get the job done without further damage.
Brick patios are usually more difficult to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones all have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These sections make brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a professional pressure washer.
Our Sarasota brick patio cleaning procedure begins with solvents that can easily reach unseen areas of dirt and dust, dissolving the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solvents will eliminate moss, mold and algae that is growing in cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to push away all the thick and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the patio look better. Dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices of concrete will 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 gets damp, it becomes slick and slippery, creating a hazard for anyone walking around the patio!
Do not rely on a garden hose or DIY videos that try to show you how to safely clean a patio, but leave this job to the professionals. Sarasota Pressure Washing has several years of experience in patio cleaning in Sarasota and the neighboring communities, and our soft wash techniques and specialty brushes guarantee all areas of your patio are immaculately clean and are ready for you and your family to enjoy!
