Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as simple as a lot of homeowners assume. Low-pressure garden hoses do not effectively wash away silt, dirt and mud that falls into the pits and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a home’s patio with a pressure washer can also result in chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn or garden and muddy water splashed onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Kansas City.
Our soft wash patio cleaning service begins with the application of a powerful but safe solvent that removes deep dirt and grime. Your patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without damage to your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Kansas City, we use the same equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home, but we use a different process. “Softwashing” is a lot like standard power washing except the pressure is kept much lower. This is necessary to preserve the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing also 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 visible damage then we will use the absolute lowest water pressure necessary to get the job done right.
Brick patios are often much harder to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones all have raised, textured areas along their surface. These areas make effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a pressure washer.
Our Kansas City brick patio cleaning procedure begins with solvents that can easily reach those unseen areas of dirt and grime, dissolving the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solvents will remove moss, mold and algae that is growing in between cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to push off all the heavy and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does much more than make the space look nicer. Organic dirt, dust, silt and other debris that gets trapped in the cracks and crevices of concrete will eventually get blown into the lawn and will then ruin its appearance. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this type of debris gets damp or wet, it becomes slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that is walking on the concrete patio!
