Pressure Washing Patios Done Right

Patios add to the overall charm of any commercial property, which is why it is important to keep them sparkling clean at all times. A careful and reliable approach to commercial patio cleaning means using the right tools and techniques.

Inspection

Washh starts every process with a meticulous inspection of the patio. Any hazards or damages will be reported and included in a quote to repair.

Clearing

The next step in the patio pressure washing process is to clear the area of any furniture, decorations, and potted plants. This is to have an unobstructed space and also helps protect your items from damage. Cover any landscaping in the area, as the pressurized water can destroy shrubs and flowers nearby.

Preparation

After vacating the area, it is time to sweep away any loose dirt and debris before applying a degreaser to the surface. This will help prepare your patio for the pressure washing treatment.

Cleaning Solution

 Along with pressurized water, we use eco-friendly, EPA-registered cleaning products to help remove stubborn dirt and stains from your patio surface. Our proprietary cleaning solutions are the best in the business.

Nozzle

It is recommended to use a 25-degree nozzle for effective pressure washing. This type of nozzle tip allows for maximum dirt and grime removal without dealing any damage on wood, concrete, and brick materials. For older or more delicate materials, it is suggested to use a 40- to 60-degree nozzle tip.

Angle

The angle of the pressure washer matters a lot when it comes to dirt and grime removal. Point the machine at a downward angle, using sweeping motions to effectively clean your commercial patio.

Broom Attachment

For larger patios, a broom attachment may be necessary to extend the reach of the pressure washer. This attachment is used to spray water in the shape of a fan.

Different Types of Patios and How to Clean Them

Patios can be made from various materials. As such, it’s essential to tailor the cleaning method according to the material used to avoid damaging them.

Concrete

To clean a concrete patio, it is recommended to use a 25-degree nozzle and a pressure level of 2,500 to 3,000 PSI. Apply the detergent and rinse using sweeping motions, repeating the process if necessary. For better protection and a longer lifespan, finish off with a sealer.

Wood 

Instead of detergents, use a wood cleaner to safely clean wood without discoloring or damaging the material. Take a brush to scrub the cleaner onto tight corners and spaces. Use a pressure level of 500 to 600 PSI, a 25- or 40-degree nozzle, and a rotating brush attachment to avoid etching the surface, making sure to follow the grains when washing.

Brick

To wash brick patios, make sure to first wet the surface with water to avoid letting the detergent soak in. Brick is very porous and can easily absorb liquids. Soft washing is best for brick, especially old brick, so it is best to use a low pressure level to rinse it down.

Stone

Ordinary laundry detergent can be used to clean stone patios, but stubborn dirt, algae, and stains may require the help of bleach. Use only thin, plain bleach without any added chemicals or detergents. Wash down the bleach or detergent using low pressure.

Tile

 Make sure to inspect tile patios first before cleaning. Avoid power or pressure washing if there are any gaps or openings as water can settle inside and cause damage. Start with a pressure level of 500 PSI, as too high a pressure can destroy grout and caulked seams. Increase the pressure level if necessary. For ceramic and porcelain tiles, don’t use a power washer.
