Pressure cleaning a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as easy as many homeowners think. Low-pressure garden hoses do not adequately wash away silt, dirt and mud that falls 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 and dirty water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Houston.
Our patio cleaning process begins with the application of a powerful but gentle detergent that breaks down ground-in 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 Houston, we use the exact same equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home exterior, but we use a different process. “Softwashing” is like regular power washing but the water pressure is kept considerably lower. This is necessary to preserve the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing also helps to keep the wood from splintering which can lead to structural issues. We have the knowledge and years of experience to utilize the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has considerable damage then we will utilize the lowest pressure necessary to get the job done without further damage.
Brick patios are often more difficult to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles all have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These areas make successful brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Houston brick patio cleaning process starts with specialty solvents that can easily reach those deep areas of dirt and grime, dissolving even the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These solvents will dissolve moss, mold and algae that is growing in between those cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to push off all the heavy and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does more than make the space look better. Organic dirt, dust, silt and other debris that gets trapped in the cracks and crevices of concrete might eventually 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 gets damp, it becomes slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that’s walking on the patio!
