Pressure cleaning a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as simple as most homeowners assume. Residential garden hoses cannot properly wash away grime, dirt and mud that settles into the pits and pores of typical patio materials. Cleaning a home’s patio with a pressure washer can also cause 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 company in Cambridge.
Our soft wash patio cleaning process starts with the application of a powerful but safe solvent 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 landscaping or lawn or creating a mess on your property.
For wood patio cleaning in Cambridge, we use the same equipment to power wash patios as we use on a home, we use a different system. “Softwashing” is a lot like power washing but the water pressure is considerably lower. This is important to protect the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing a patio also helps to keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural problems. We have the knowledge and years of experience to utilize the exact pressure needed. If the patio has visible damage then we will use the lowest water pressure necessary to get the job done without further damage.
Brick patios are usually much harder to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones have raised, textured areas along their surface. These areas make brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a pressure washer.
Our Cambridge brick patio cleaning process starts with solvents that can easily reach deep areas of dirt and dust, dissolving even the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solvents will dissolve moss, mold and algae that is growing in those cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to push away all the heavy and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does more than make the patio look better. Dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets trapped in the cracks and crevices of concrete will eventually get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this debris becomes damp, it becomes very 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 try to show you how to safely clean a patio, but leave this job to the professionals. Cambridge Pressure Washing has years of hands-on experience in patio cleaning in Cambridge and the surrounding communities, and our soft wash techniques and specialty brushes guarantee all areas of your patio are spotlessly clean and ready for you to enjoy!
