Patio Cleaning

berkeley patio cleaning



Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as simple as most homeowners think. Low-pressure garden hoses can’t properly wash away silt, dirt and mud that falls into the cracks and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a home’s patio with a pressure washer can also cause 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 Berkeley.

Our patio cleaning process starts with the application of a strong but gentle detergent that removes deep dirt and grime. Your patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without harming your lawn or landscaping or creating a mess.


For wood patio cleaning in Berkeley, we use the same professional equipment to power wash patios that we use home, but we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is like power washing except the pressure is kept much lower. This is vital to protect the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing a patio also keep the wood from splintering which will cause structural problems. We have knowledge and experience to utilize the exact pressure needed. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will use the absolute lowest pressure necessary to get the job done safely.


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

Our Berkeley brick patio cleaning process begins with specialty solvents that can easily reach hidden areas of dirt and grime, dissolving even the thickest mud and ground-in debris. These detergents will remove moss, mold and algae that might be growing in cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to push away all the heavy and unsightly dirt and debris.


Pressure washing a concrete patio does more than make the space look cleaner. 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 as well. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this debris becomes damp, it becomes very slick and slippery, creating a hazard for anyone walking around the concrete patio!

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