Pressure cleaning a patio isn’t as simple as most homeowners assume. Residential garden hoses cannot effectively wash away grime, dirt and mud that falls into the pits and pores of typical patio materials. Cleaning a home’s patio with a pressure washer can also result in chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn or garden and muddy water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Akron.
Our soft wash patio cleaning process begins with the application of a strong but safe detergent that breaks down ground-in dirt and grime. Your 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 Akron, we use the exact same professional equipment to power wash patios as we use home, but we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is like standard power washing but the pressure is considerably lower. This is important to preserve the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing a patio also helps to keep the wood from splintering which will cause structural issues. We have the knowledge and experience to utilize the exact pressure needed. If the patio has considerable damage then we will use the lowest water pressure needed to get the job done right.
Brick patios are usually much harder to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones have raised, textured areas along their surface. These areas make effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a professional pressure washer.
Our Akron brick patio cleaning procedure begins with solvents that can easily reach those deep areas of dirt and grime, dissolving even the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will eliminate moss, mold and algae that might be growing in between cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to wash off all the thick and unsightly dirt and debris.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does more than make the space look better. Dirt, dust, grime and other such debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete can get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance too. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this type of debris becomes damp or wet, it becomes very slick and slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone that’s walking on the concrete patio!
