Pressure cleaning a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as easy as many homeowners assume. Low-pressure garden hoses can’t effectively wash away grime, dirt and mud that falls into the cracks and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a home’s patio with a pressure washer can also cause chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn or garden and dirty water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Bloomington.
Our soft wash patio cleaning process begins with the application of a strong but gentle solvent that removes deep dirt and grime. Your brick, concrete or wood patio, can then be gently rinsed, with low water pressure and without harming your lawn or landscaping or creating a mess on your property.
For wood patio cleaning in Bloomington, we use the same equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home exterior, we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is a lot like power washing but the pressure is kept considerably lower. This is necessary to preserve the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing a patio also helps to keep the wood from splintering which will lead to structural problems. We have knowledge and years of experience to determine the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will use the absolute lowest pressure needed to get the job done without further damage.
Brick patios are usually more difficult to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles all have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These sections make successful brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a pressure washer.
Our Bloomington brick patio cleaning procedure starts with solvents that easily reach deep areas of dirt and grime, dissolving even the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These solvents will eliminate moss, mold and algae that might be growing in those cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to push away all the thick and unsightly grit and grime.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does much more than make the space look cleaner. Organic dirt, dust, grime and other such debris that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices of concrete can get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance too. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this debris becomes damp or wet, it becomes very slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone walking on the concrete patio!
Don’t count on a garden hose or DIY online videos that try to show homeowners how to clean a patio, but leave this job to the professionals. Bloomington Pressure Washing has several years of experience in patio cleaning in Bloomington and the surrounding areas, and our professional soft wash systems and brushes will guarantee all areas of your patio are pristinely clean and ready for you to enjoy!
