Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as simple as many homeowners assume. Low-pressure garden hoses cannot effectively wash away grime, dirt and mud that falls into the cracks and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a home’s 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 better left for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Charlotte.
Our soft wash patio cleaning service starts with the application of a strong but safe solvent that removes deep dirt and debris. 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 on your property.
For wood patio cleaning in Charlotte, we use the exact same equipment to power wash patios as we use on a home exterior, but we use a different system. “Softwashing” is a lot like power washing but the water pressure is considerably lower. This is necessary to preserve the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing a patio also helps to keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural issues. We have the knowledge and experience to determine the exact pressure needed. If the patio has considerable damage then we will use the absolute lowest pressure needed to get the job done right.
Brick patios are typically more difficult to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio stones have raised, textured areas along their surface. These areas make brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a professional pressure washer.
Our Charlotte brick patio cleaning process starts with specialty solvents that easily reach hidden areas of dirt and grime, dissolving the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These solvents will dissolve moss, mold and algae that is growing in between those cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to wash off all the thick and unsightly grit and debris.
Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does much more than make the space look nicer. Organic dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets trapped in the cracks and crevices of concrete might eventually get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance as well. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this type of debris gets damp, it becomes slick and slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone that is walking on the patio!

PRO Charlotte Pressure Washing has several years of experience in patio cleaning in Charlotte and the neighboring communities, and our professional soft wash techniques and specialty brushes will guarantee all areas of your patio are pristinely clean and ready for you to enjoy!
