Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as simple as a lot of homeowners assume. Low-pressure garden hoses cannot properly 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 lead to chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn and dirty water splashed onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Bowie.
Our patio cleaning service begins with the application of a strong but gentle detergent that removes ground-in dirt and grime. Your 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 Bowie, we use the exact same equipment to power wash patios that we use home, but we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is a lot like standard power washing but the water pressure is considerably lower. This is important to preserve the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing a patio also helps to keep the wood from splintering which can lead to structural problems. We have knowledge and experience to utilize the exact pressure needed. If the patio has visible damage then we will use the lowest water pressure needed to get the job done safely.
Brick patios are usually more difficult to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles all have raised, textured areas along their surface. These areas make brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Bowie brick patio cleaning procedure starts with solvents that can easily reach deep areas of dirt and grime, 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 special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to wash off all the thick and unsightly dirt and grime.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does more than make the patio look cleaner. Organic dirt, dust, grime and other debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete can get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this debris becomes damp, it becomes very slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone walking on the concrete patio!
Do not count on a garden hose or DIY videos that attempt to show homeowners how to safely clean a patio, but instead leave this job to the professionals. Bowie Pressure Washing has several years of experience in patio cleaning in Bowie and the surrounding areas, and our soft wash systems and specialty brushes will guarantee all areas of your patio are spotlessly clean and are ready for you to enjoy!
