Patio Cleaning

lake forest patio cleaning



Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio is not as easy as a lot of homeowners think. Standard garden hoses can’t properly wash away grime, dirt and mud that falls into the cracks and pores of typical patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also lead to chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn or garden and dirty water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Lake Forest.

Our soft wash patio cleaning process starts with the application of a strong but safe solvent that removes embedded dirt and debris. Your 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 Lake Forest, we use the exact same professional equipment to power wash patios as we use on a home, but we use a different process. “Softwashing” is a lot like regular power washing except the water pressure is considerably lower. This is necessary to preserve the paint, stains and finishes on the wood. Soft washing a patio also keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural issues. We have the knowledge and experience to determine the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will utilize the lowest water pressure necessary to get the job done without further damage.


Brick patios are often much harder to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles have raised, textured areas along their surface. These areas make brick patio cleaning challenging, even when using a professional pressure washer.

Our Lake Forest brick patio cleaning procedure begins with solvents that can easily reach those deep areas of dirt and grime, dissolving even the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will remove moss, mold and algae that is growing in between those cracks and crevices! We then use our special brushes for cleaning brick patios, to wash away all the heavy and unsightly dirt and debris.


Pressure washing a concrete patio does much more than make the patio look better. Dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete might get blown into the lawn and will then ruin its appearance too. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this debris becomes damp, it becomes very slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that’s walking on the concrete patio!

Don’t count on a garden hose or DIY online videos that try to show you how to clean a patio, but leave this job to the professionals. Lake Forest Pressure Washing has years of hands-on experience in patio cleaning in Lake Forest and the neighboring areas, and our professional soft wash techniques and specialty brushes ensure all areas of your home’s patio are immaculately clean and are ready for you to enjoy!
