Pressure cleaning a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as easy as a lot of homeowners think. Standard garden hoses can’t adequately 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 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 service in Carlsbad.
Our soft wash patio cleaning process begins with the application of a strong but gentle detergent that dissolves ground-in dirt and grime. Your brick, concrete or wood patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without harming your lawn or landscaping or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Carlsbad, we use the same equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home exterior, we use a different system. “Softwashing” is like regular power washing but the water pressure is kept much lower. This is important to protect the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing a patio also helps to keep the wood from splintering which will cause structural problems. We have the knowledge and experience to determine the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has considerable damage then we will utilize the lowest pressure needed to get the job done right.
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 areas make brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a professional pressure washer.
Our Carlsbad brick patio cleaning procedure begins with solvents that easily reach deep areas of dirt and grime, dissolving even the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will remove moss, mold and algae that might be growing in cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to push off all the thick and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does more than make the space look cleaner. Dirt, dust, grime and other such debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete might get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance too. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this type of debris gets damp or wet, it becomes very slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone walking around the patio!
Do not rely on a garden hose or DIY online videos that try to show homeowners how to safely clean a patio, but leave this work to the professionals. Carlsbad Pressure Washing has years of hands-on experience in patio cleaning in Carlsbad and the surrounding areas, and our soft wash systems and specialty brushes guarantee all areas of your patio are pristinely clean and are ready for you and your family to enjoy!
