madison patio cleaning


Pressure cleaning a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as easy as a lot of homeowners assume. Residential garden hoses can’t effectively wash away grime, dirt and mud that falls into the pits and pores of typical patio materials. Cleaning a home’s patio with a pressure washer can also cause chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn and dirty water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Madison.

Our patio cleaning service starts with the application of a strong but gentle detergent that breaks down deep dirt and grime. Your brick, concrete or wood patio, can then be gently rinsed, with low water pressure and without damage to your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess on your property.


For wood patio cleaning in Madison, we use the same equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home, we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is a lot like regular power washing except the water pressure is considerably lower. This is vital to preserve the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing a patio 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 visible damage then we will utilize the absolute lowest water pressure needed to get the job done right.


Brick patios are typically more difficult to pressure clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles all have raised, textured areas along their surface. These sections make successful brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.

Our Madison brick patio cleaning service starts with solvents that can easily reach deep areas of dirt and grime, dissolving the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will dissolve moss, mold and algae that is growing in between cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to wash away all the thick and unsightly dirt and grime.


Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the space look better. Organic dirt, dust, grime and other debris that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices of concrete will eventually 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 gets damp or wet, it becomes very slick and very slippery, and creates a hazard for anyone walking around the concrete patio!
