Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as easy as many homeowners think. Residential garden hoses cannot 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 dirty water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Knoxville.
Our soft wash patio cleaning process begins with the application of a powerful but safe solvent that breaks down embedded dirt and grime. Your patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without harming your lawn or landscaping or creating a mess on your property.
For wood patio cleaning in Knoxville, we use the same equipment to power wash patios as we use on a home, but we use a different process. “Softwashing” is a lot like power washing but the water pressure is kept considerably lower. This is vital to preserve the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing a patio also helps to keep the wood from splintering which will lead to structural problems. We have knowledge and years of experience to utilize the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will use the lowest pressure necessary to get the job done without further damage.
Brick patios are often more difficult to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles have raised, textured areas along their surface. These areas make brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Knoxville brick patio cleaning procedure starts with specialty solvents that can easily reach those deep areas of dirt and dust, dissolving the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will eliminate moss, mold and algae that might be growing in cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to push off all the heavy and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does more than make the patio look better. Organic dirt, dust, grime and other debris that gets trapped in the cracks and crevices of concrete might eventually get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this debris gets damp, it becomes very slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that’s walking around the 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 work to the professionals. Knoxville Pressure Washing has several years of experience in patio cleaning in Knoxville and the surrounding areas, and our soft wash techniques and specialty brushes will guarantee all areas of your patio are spotlessly clean and ready for you and your family to enjoy!
