Pressure cleaning a patio isn’t as simple as a lot of homeowners assume. Standard garden hoses can’t effectively wash away silt, dirt and mud that falls into the pits and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also lead to chipped paint, a damaged lawn or garden and muddy water splashed onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Columbus.
Our soft wash patio cleaning process starts with the application of a powerful but safe detergent that eliminates embedded 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.
For wood patio cleaning in Columbus, we use the same equipment to power wash patios as we use home, we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is a lot like regular power washing except the water pressure is considerably lower. This is vital to protect the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing a patio also keep the wood from splintering which will lead to structural problems. We have 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 necessary to get the job done right.
Brick patios are typically 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 effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Columbus brick patio cleaning process begins with solvents that easily reach hidden areas of dirt and grime, dissolving the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solvents will dissolve moss, mold and algae that might be 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 grime.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does much more than make the space look cleaner. Dirt, dust, silt and other debris that gets trapped in the cracks and crevices of concrete might eventually get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance as well. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this type of debris becomes damp or wet, it becomes slick and very slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone walking around the concrete patio!
