Pressure washing a patio is not as easy as many homeowners assume. Standard garden hoses cannot adequately 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 cause chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn and muddy water splashed onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Baltimore.
Our patio cleaning process begins with the application of a powerful but safe detergent that breaks down deep dirt and debris. Your patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without harming your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Baltimore, we use the exact same equipment to power wash patios as we use home exterior, but we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is like regular power washing except the pressure is kept considerably lower. This is necessary to protect the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing a patio also keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural problems. We have knowledge and years of experience to utilize the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has considerable damage then we will use the absolute lowest pressure necessary to get the job done without further damage.
Brick patios are typically much harder to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones have raised, textured areas along their surface. These areas make brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Baltimore brick patio cleaning service starts with specialty solvents that easily reach unseen areas of dirt and grime, dissolving even the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will dissolve moss, mold and algae that is growing in cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to wash off all the heavy and unsightly grit and grime.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does much more than make the patio look better. Dirt, dust, silt and other debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete can 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 becomes damp, it becomes slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that’s walking around the concrete patio!
