Pressure washing a patio is not as easy as most homeowners think. Residential garden hoses cannot properly 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 lead to chipped patio 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 Wilmington.
Our patio cleaning service begins with the application of a powerful but gentle solvent that eliminates embedded 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 Wilmington, we use the exact same professional equipment to power wash patios as we use on a home exterior, but we use a different process. “Softwashing” is like standard power washing but the water pressure is kept 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 will cause structural issues. We have the knowledge and experience to utilize the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has visible damage then we will utilize the lowest 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 the top of their surface. These areas make brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a professional pressure washer.
Our Wilmington brick patio cleaning service begins with specialty solvents that easily reach those deep areas of dirt and dust, dissolving even the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will remove moss, mold and algae that is growing in between those cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to wash off all the heavy and unsightly dirt and debris.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the space look nicer. Dirt, dust, silt and other debris that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices of concrete will get blown into the lawn and will then ruin its appearance. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this debris becomes damp, it becomes slick and slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone that is walking on the concrete patio!
Do not rely on a garden hose or DIY videos that attempt to show homeowners how to clean a patio, but instead leave this job to the professionals. Wilmington Pressure Washing has several years of experience in patio cleaning in Wilmington and the surrounding communities, and our soft wash techniques and specialty brushes guarantee all areas of your home’s patio are spotlessly clean and ready for you to enjoy!
