Pressure cleaning a patio isn’t as simple as many homeowners assume. Low-pressure garden hoses can’t adequately wash away silt, dirt and mud that settles into the cracks and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a home’s patio with a pressure washer can also result in chipped paint, a damaged lawn or garden and muddy water splashed onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Alexandria.
Our soft wash patio cleaning service starts with the application of a powerful but gentle solvent that breaks down 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 on your property.
For wood patio cleaning in Alexandria, we use the same equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home exterior, but we use a different process. “Softwashing” is a lot like regular power washing except the pressure is much lower. This is important to protect the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing also helps to keep the wood from splintering which will cause structural issues. We have knowledge and years of experience to utilize the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has considerable damage then we will use the absolute lowest pressure needed to get the job done without further damage.
Brick patios are typically more difficult to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles all have raised, textured areas along their surface. These areas make successful brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a professional pressure washer.
Our Alexandria brick patio cleaning service begins with specialty solvents that easily reach unseen areas of dirt and dust, dissolving the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will remove moss, mold and algae that is growing in cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to push off all the thick and unsightly grit and grime.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the patio look better. Dirt, dust, grime and other debris that gets trapped in the cracks and crevices of concrete can get blown into the lawn and will then 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 is walking around the patio!
Do not rely on a garden hose or DIY videos that try to show homeowners how to safely clean a patio, but leave this work to the professionals. AllClean Alexandria Pressure Washing has years of experience in patio cleaning in Alexandria and the neighboring communities, and our soft wash systems and specialty brushes ensure all areas of your patio are immaculately clean and ready for you to enjoy!
