Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as simple as most homeowners think. Low-pressure garden hoses do not properly wash away grime, dirt and mud that falls into the cracks and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a home’s patio with a pressure washer can also lead to chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn or garden and dirty water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Greenville.
Our soft wash patio cleaning process begins with the application of a strong but gentle solvent that removes embedded dirt and grime. Your brick, concrete or wood patio, can then be gently rinsed, with low water pressure and without harming your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Greenville, we use the exact same professional equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home, we use a different system. “Softwashing” is a lot like regular power washing except the water pressure is much lower. This is necessary to preserve the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing also keep the wood from splintering which can lead to structural problems. We have knowledge and experience to utilize the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has considerable damage then we will use the lowest water pressure necessary to get the job done right.
Brick patios are often more difficult to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones all have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These sections make successful brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Greenville brick patio cleaning service begins with solvents that easily reach those hidden areas of dirt and grime, dissolving even the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will dissolve moss, mold and algae that is growing in those cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to wash away all the thick and unsightly grit and grime.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does more than make the patio look cleaner. Dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete will eventually get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this type of debris becomes damp or wet, it becomes very slick and slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone walking around the concrete patio!
