Pressure washing a patio is not as easy as most homeowners think. Low-pressure garden hoses do not effectively 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 cause chipped 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 Escondido.
Our patio cleaning process starts with the application of a powerful but gentle detergent that removes ground-in dirt and grime. Your patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without damage to your lawn or landscaping or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Escondido, we use the exact same professional equipment to power wash patios as we use on a home exterior, but we use a different process. “Softwashing” is like power washing but the water pressure is kept considerably lower. This is necessary to preserve the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing a patio also keep the wood from splintering which will cause structural issues. We have the knowledge and years of experience to determine the exact pressure needed. If the patio has visible damage then we will use the lowest water pressure needed to get the job done right.
Brick patios are typically more difficult to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones all have raised, textured areas along their surface. These areas make brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Escondido brick patio cleaning process starts with specialty solvents that easily reach those 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 between cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to wash off all the thick and unsightly dirt and debris.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does more than make the space look better. Organic dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets stuck 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 gets damp or wet, it becomes slick and slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone that’s walking on the concrete patio!
Do not count on a garden hose or DIY videos that promise to show you how to clean a patio, but instead leave this work to the professionals. Escondido Pressure Washing has years of experience in patio cleaning in Escondido and the neighboring areas, and our professional soft wash systems and brushes will ensure all areas of your home’s patio are spotlessly clean and are ready for you and your family to enjoy!
