Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as simple as a lot of homeowners think. Standard garden hoses do not adequately 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 cause chipped paint, a damaged lawn or garden and muddy water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Metairie.
Our patio cleaning service starts with the application of a strong but gentle detergent that dissolves embedded dirt and grime. Your 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 Metairie, we use the exact same professional equipment to power wash patios as we use on a home, we use a different system. “Softwashing” is a lot like standard power washing except the pressure is kept considerably lower. This is vital to protect the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing also helps to keep the wood from splintering which can lead to structural issues. We have knowledge and experience to determine the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will use the absolute lowest pressure needed to get the job done safely.
Brick patios are typically more difficult to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles have raised, textured areas along their surface. These sections make effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Metairie brick patio cleaning procedure begins with specialty solvents that easily reach deep areas of dirt and dust, dissolving even the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will dissolve moss, mold and algae that might be growing in those cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to push away all the thick and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does much more than make the space look nicer. Dirt, dust, grime 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 as well. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this type of debris becomes damp, it becomes very slick and slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone walking around the concrete patio!
