Pressure washing a patio is not as easy as a lot of homeowners think. Standard garden hoses do not adequately wash away grime, dirt and mud that falls into the pits and pores of typical patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also result in 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 Smithtown.
Our patio cleaning service begins with the application of a powerful but gentle detergent that dissolves deep dirt and grime. Your brick, concrete or wood patio, can then be gently rinsed, with low water pressure and without harming your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess.
For wood patio cleaning in Smithtown, we use the exact same equipment to power wash patios as we use home, we use a different system. “Softwashing” is like regular power washing but the water pressure is kept much lower. This is important to protect the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing also keep the wood from splintering which will cause structural problems. We have knowledge and experience to utilize the exact pressure needed. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will utilize the lowest pressure necessary to get the job done without further damage.
Brick patios are typically much harder to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles all have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These sections make successful brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.
Our Smithtown brick patio cleaning procedure begins with specialty solvents that can easily reach those hidden areas of dirt and grime, dissolving the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will dissolve moss, mold and algae that is growing in between cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to wash off all the thick and unsightly grit and grime.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does more than make the patio look better. Dirt, dust, grime and other debris that gets trapped in the cracks and crevices of concrete can eventually get blown into the lawn and will then ruin its appearance. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this type of debris becomes damp or wet, it becomes slick and slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone walking around the concrete patio!
Don’t rely on a garden hose or DIY online videos that promise to show homeowners how to clean a patio, but leave this work to the professionals. Smithtown Pressure Washing has years of experience in patio cleaning in Smithtown and the neighboring communities, and our soft wash techniques and specialty brushes will guarantee all areas of your patio are spotlessly clean and are ready for you and your family to enjoy!
