Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as simple as many homeowners assume. Residential garden hoses can’t adequately wash away silt, dirt and mud that settles into the pits and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also cause chipped paint, a damaged lawn and muddy water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Grand Rapids.
Our soft wash patio cleaning process starts with the application of a powerful but gentle detergent that eliminates ground-in dirt and grime. Your patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without harming your lawn or landscaping or creating a mess on your property.
For wood patio cleaning in Grand Rapids, we use the exact same professional equipment to power wash patios as we use home, we use a different system. “Softwashing” is like power washing except the water pressure is much lower. This is necessary to protect the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing also helps to keep the wood from splintering which can lead to structural issues. We have knowledge and experience to determine the exact pressure needed. If the patio has considerable damage then we will use the absolute lowest water pressure needed to get the job done without further damage.
Brick patios are often much harder to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles all have raised, textured areas along their surface. These sections make successful brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a pressure washer.
Our Grand Rapids brick patio cleaning process starts with specialty solvents that easily reach unseen areas of dirt and grime, dissolving the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will dissolve moss, mold and algae that might be growing in those cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to push off all the thick and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the patio look cleaner. Dirt, dust, grime 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 and mildew, mold and algae. When this type of debris gets damp or wet, it becomes slick and slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone that is walking on the patio!
