Pressure washing a patio is not as easy as many homeowners assume. Low-pressure garden hoses do not effectively wash away silt, dirt and mud that settles 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 splashed onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Vancouver.
Our soft wash patio cleaning service starts with the application of a strong but safe solvent that dissolves ground-in dirt and grime. Your brick, concrete or wood 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 Vancouver, we use the exact same professional equipment to power wash patios as we use home exterior, we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is like standard power washing but the water pressure is kept much lower. This is necessary to preserve the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing also keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural problems. We have knowledge and experience to determine the exact pressure needed. If the patio has visible damage then we will use the absolute lowest pressure necessary to get the job done safely.
Brick patios are typically much harder to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles have raised, textured areas along their surface. These sections make successful brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a professional pressure washer.
Our Vancouver brick patio cleaning process begins with 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 between those cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to push off all the thick and unsightly dirt and debris.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does more than make the patio look better. Dirt, dust, silt and other debris that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices of concrete might eventually get blown into the lawn and will then ruin its appearance as well. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this type of debris gets damp, it becomes slick and slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone that is walking around the concrete patio!
