Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as simple as a lot of homeowners think. Residential garden hoses do not adequately wash away grime, 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 and dirty water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Federal Way.
Our patio cleaning process starts with the application of a powerful but safe solvent that breaks down ground-in dirt and debris. Your patio, can then be gently rinsed, with low water pressure and without damage to your lawn or landscaping or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Federal Way, we use the exact same professional equipment to power wash patios as we use on a home, but we use a different system. “Softwashing” is a lot like standard power washing but the pressure is much lower. This is important to protect the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing also helps to keep the wood from splintering which will lead to 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 lowest water pressure necessary to get the job done safely.
Brick patios are usually much harder to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones 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 Federal Way brick patio cleaning process starts with specialty solvents that easily reach deep 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 deep cleaning brick patios, to push off all the heavy and unsightly dirt and grime.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does much more than make the patio look cleaner. Dirt, dust, grime and other debris that gets stuck 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 debris gets damp or wet, it becomes very slick and slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone walking on the concrete patio!
Do not rely on a garden hose or DIY online videos that attempt to show you how to safely clean a patio, but leave this job to the professionals. Federal Way Pressure Washing has several years of hands-on experience in patio cleaning in Federal Way and the neighboring communities, and our soft wash systems and brushes ensure all areas of your home’s patio are spotlessly clean and are ready for you and your family to enjoy!
