Pressure washing a patio is not as easy as a lot of homeowners assume. Standard garden hoses cannot properly wash away silt, dirt and mud that falls into the cracks and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also cause chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn or garden and dirty water splashed onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning service in El Cajon.
Our soft wash patio cleaning service starts with the application of a powerful but gentle solvent that eliminates embedded dirt and grime. Your patio, can then be gently rinsed, with low water pressure and without damage to your lawn or landscaping or creating a mess on your property.
For wood patio cleaning in El Cajon, we use the same professional equipment to power wash patios that we use home, we use a different system. “Softwashing” is a lot like regular power washing but the water pressure is much lower. This is important to preserve the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing also keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural issues. We haveknowledge and years of experience to determine the exact pressure needed. If the patio has visible damage then we will utilize the lowest pressure needed to get the job done right.
Brick patios are often much harder to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones all have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These areas make brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a professional pressure washer.
Our El Cajon brick patio cleaning service begins with solvents that easily reach those hidden areas of dirt and dust, dissolving the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will dissolve moss, mold and algae that is growing in cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to wash away all the heavy and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does more than make the space look better. Dirt, dust, grime and other such debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete will eventually get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance too. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this type of debris gets damp, it becomes slick and slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that is walking on the patio!
Do not count on a garden hose or DIY videos that try to show homeowners how to safely clean a patio, but leave this work to the professionals. El Cajon Pressure Washing has several years of experience in patio cleaning in El Cajon and the neighboring communities, and our soft wash systems and specialty brushes will ensure all areas of your home’s patio are immaculately clean and are ready for you to enjoy!
