Pressure cleaning a patio is not as simple as a lot of homeowners assume. Residential garden hoses cannot properly wash away grime, dirt and mud that settles into the cracks and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also result in chipped paint, a damaged lawn and muddy water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Minneapolis.
Our soft wash patio cleaning service begins with the application of a strong but safe detergent that removes ground-in dirt and debris. Your brick, concrete or wood patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without damage to your lawn or landscaping or creating a mess on your property.
For wood patio cleaning in Minneapolis, we use the same equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home, we use a different system. “Softwashing” is a lot like power washing except the water pressure is considerably lower. This is necessary to protect the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing also helps to keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural issues. We have the knowledge and experience to utilize the exact pressure needed. If the patio has considerable damage then we will use the lowest pressure needed to get the job done right.
Brick patios are typically much harder to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles have raised, textured areas along the top of their surface. These areas make successful brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a professional pressure washer.
Our Minneapolis brick patio cleaning procedure starts with solvents that can easily reach those unseen areas of dirt and dust, dissolving the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solutions will remove moss, mold and algae that might be growing in between those cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to wash away all the thick and unsightly dirt and debris.
Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the patio look cleaner. Organic dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices of concrete can get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this type of debris becomes damp, it becomes slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that is walking around the 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 job to the professionals. Minneapolis Pressure Washing has several years of experience in patio cleaning in Minneapolis and the surrounding areas, and our professional soft wash techniques and specialty brushes ensure all areas of your patio are immaculately clean and are ready for you and your family to enjoy!
