Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as easy as most homeowners think. Standard garden hoses do not effectively wash away grime, dirt and mud that falls into the cracks and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also cause chipped paint, a damaged lawn or garden and muddy water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Overland Park.
Our soft wash patio cleaning process starts with the application of a powerful but safe solvent that dissolves deep dirt and grime. Your 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 Overland Park, we use the same professional equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home, we use a different process. “Softwashing” is like power washing but the pressure is much lower. This is important to protect the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing also keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural issues. We have the knowledge and experience to determine the exact pressure needed. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will use the lowest pressure necessary to get the job done right.
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 successful brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a professional pressure washer.
Our Overland Park brick patio cleaning procedure begins with solvents that easily reach those deep areas of dirt and dust, dissolving the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will eliminate moss, mold and algae that is growing in cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to push away all the heavy and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does much more than make the space look better. Organic dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete can eventually get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance. 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 around the patio!
