Pressure cleaning a patio isn’t as simple as a lot of homeowners think. Residential garden hoses do not properly wash away silt, dirt and mud that falls into the pits and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also lead to chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn and dirty water splashed onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Arvada.
Our patio cleaning process starts with the application of a strong but safe solvent that removes ground-in dirt and grime. Your patio, can then be gently rinsed, with low water pressure and without harming your lawn or landscaping or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Arvada, we use the exact same professional equipment to power wash patios that we use home exterior, we use a different process. “Softwashing” is like standard power washing except the water pressure is kept much lower. This is vital to protect the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing also keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural problems. We have the knowledge and years of experience to determine the exact pressure needed. If the patio has visible damage then we will use the absolute lowest water pressure needed to get the job done safely.
Brick patios are often 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 brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Arvada brick patio cleaning service begins with solvents that easily reach those unseen areas of dirt and dust, dissolving even the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will eliminate moss, mold and algae that is growing in cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to wash off all the thick and unsightly dirt and grime.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does much more than make the space look better. Dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets trapped in the cracks and crevices of concrete might 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 or wet, it becomes very slick and slippery, creating a hazard for anyone walking on the concrete patio!
Don’t count 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. Arvada Pressure Washing has years of hands-on experience in patio cleaning in Arvada and the neighboring communities, and our soft wash systems and brushes guarantee all areas of your home’s patio are pristinely clean and ready for you to enjoy!
