Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as simple as a lot of homeowners think. Standard garden hoses do not effectively wash away grime, dirt and mud that falls into the pits and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also cause chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn and muddy water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Gresham.
Our soft wash patio cleaning process starts with the application of a powerful but gentle solvent that removes deep dirt and grime. Your brick, concrete or wood patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without damage to your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Gresham, we use the exact same professional equipment to power wash patios as we use on a home, but 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 on the wood. Soft washing a patio also keep the wood from splintering which can lead to structural issues. We have the knowledge and 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 without further damage.
Brick patios are usually more difficult to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These areas make effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a professional pressure washer.
Our Gresham brick patio cleaning service starts with specialty solvents that can easily reach hidden areas of dirt and dust, dissolving even the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will dissolve moss, mold and algae that might be growing in between those cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to wash away all the thick and unsightly dirt and grime.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the space look better. Organic dirt, dust, grime and other such debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete might eventually get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance as well. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this debris becomes damp or wet, it becomes very slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone walking around the concrete patio!
Do not rely on a garden hose or DIY videos that try to show you how to clean a patio, but instead leave this job to the professionals. Gresham Pressure Washing has several years of hands-on experience in patio cleaning in Gresham and the surrounding areas, and our soft wash systems and brushes ensure all areas of your patio are immaculately clean and are ready for you to enjoy!
