Pressure washing a patio is not as easy as a lot of homeowners assume. Residential garden hoses can’t adequately wash away silt, dirt and mud that settles into the pits and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also lead to chipped paint, a damaged lawn and muddy water splashed onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Naperville.
Our patio cleaning process begins with the application of a strong but gentle detergent that breaks down deep 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 Naperville, we use the exact same professional equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home, but we use a different system. “Softwashing” is like power washing but the pressure is kept much lower. This is necessary to preserve the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing a patio also keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural problems. We have the knowledge and experience to utilize the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will utilize the 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 tiles all have raised, textured areas along their surface. These sections make brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a pressure washer.
Our Naperville brick patio cleaning process starts with specialty solvents that can easily reach those deep areas of dirt and grime, dissolving the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will dissolve moss, mold and algae that is growing in between those cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to wash off all the thick and unsightly grit and grime.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does much more than make the patio look nicer. Dirt, dust, silt and other debris that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices of concrete might get blown into the lawn and will then ruin its appearance as well. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this debris gets damp or wet, it becomes slick and slippery, creating a hazard for anyone walking on the patio!
Do not count on a garden hose or DIY online videos that promise to show homeowners how to safely clean a patio, but leave this job to the professionals. Naperville Pressure Washing has years of experience in patio cleaning in Naperville and the neighboring communities, and our soft wash systems and specialty brushes guarantee all areas of your patio are spotlessly clean and ready for you to enjoy!
