Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as easy as most homeowners assume. Residential garden hoses can’t effectively wash away grime, dirt and mud that falls into the pits and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also lead to chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn and muddy water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Boston.
Our patio cleaning process starts with the application of a powerful but safe detergent that dissolves ground-in dirt and grime. 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.
For wood patio cleaning in Boston, we use the exact same professional equipment to power wash patios as we use on a home, we use a different system. “Softwashing” is like standard power washing except the water pressure is kept considerably lower. This is vital to protect the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing a patio also helps to keep the wood from splintering which can lead to structural issues. We have knowledge and years of experience to determine the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has considerable damage then we will utilize the absolute 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 the top of their surface. These areas make successful brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Boston brick patio cleaning process starts with specialty solvents that easily reach those unseen areas of dirt and dust, dissolving the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will dissolve moss, mold and algae that might be 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 grit and debris.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does much more than make the patio look cleaner. Organic dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets trapped in the cracks and crevices of concrete can eventually get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance as well. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this type of debris gets damp or wet, it becomes slick and slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone walking on the concrete patio!
