Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as easy as a lot of homeowners think. Residential garden hoses do not effectively 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 result in chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn or garden and muddy water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Roanoke.
Our patio cleaning service begins with the application of a powerful but safe detergent that dissolves 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.
For wood patio cleaning in Roanoke, we use the same equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home exterior, but we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is like regular power washing but the water pressure is kept much lower. This is necessary to protect the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing 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 for the patio. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will utilize the lowest water pressure necessary to get the job done right.
Brick patios are usually much harder to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These sections make effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a professional pressure washer.
Our Roanoke brick patio cleaning process begins with specialty solvents that easily reach hidden areas of dirt and dust, dissolving even the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will eliminate moss, mold and algae that might be growing in between cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to push off all the heavy and unsightly grit and grime.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the space look nicer. Dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets trapped in the cracks and crevices of concrete will eventually 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 very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that is walking around the patio!
Do not count on a garden hose or DIY videos that try to show you how to clean a patio, but leave this work to the professionals. Roanoke Pressure Washing has several years of experience in patio cleaning in Roanoke and the neighboring areas, and our professional soft wash systems and specialty brushes ensure all areas of your patio are spotlessly clean and are ready for you to enjoy!
