Pressure washing a patio is not as simple as most homeowners assume. Low-pressure garden hoses cannot properly wash away grime, dirt and mud that falls into the cracks and pores of typical patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also lead to chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn and dirty water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Reno.
Our soft wash patio cleaning process starts with the application of a strong but safe detergent that removes ground-in dirt and debris. Your brick, concrete or wood 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 Reno, we use the same professional equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home exterior, we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is like power washing except the pressure is kept much lower. This is important to preserve the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing also keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural issues. We have the knowledge and years of experience to utilize the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will utilize the absolute lowest pressure necessary to get the job done right.
Brick patios are usually more difficult to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These sections make effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Reno brick patio cleaning process starts with specialty solvents that easily reach deep areas of dirt and dust, dissolving the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solvents will remove moss, mold and algae that is growing in cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to push off all the heavy and unsightly grit and grime.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does more than make the patio 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. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this debris becomes damp or wet, it becomes slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that is walking around the concrete patio!
Don’t count on a garden hose or DIY online videos that try to show homeowners how to safely clean a patio, but leave this work to the professionals. Reno Pressure Washing has years of hands-on experience in patio cleaning in Reno and the surrounding communities, and our soft wash systems and specialty brushes guarantee all areas of your home’s patio are spotlessly clean and ready for you and your family to enjoy!
